MIDI - more Rev resources

I appreciate what you're saying here, but I had assumed that MIDI was 
built in to Revolution (and I don't think I'm stretching what the 
website says, however little!).

I had found some Java MIDI apps, which I could package up with any 
Revolution solution, and call them from Revolution. I'd rather that than 
insist QT be installed, although I could assume that it's fairly 
widespread. Hmm, I'll have to think about that.

In your scenario: Would it be a case of using 'launch' or calling QT and 
asking it to parse the file? By 'file format': Do you mean the QT MIDI 
file format or QT 'mov' format?
