Hello Tom

I have faced and solved both your problems. These are the workarounds  
I found...

- To see the revBrowser in Win stand-alones that use custom shaped  
windows, you need to re-create the window shape PNG and take out all  
semi-transparencies. What I mean is that all pixels need to be either  
full color or fully transparent, nothing in the middle.

- To play a movie right in the center the first time it is played I  
use the following code...

prepare videoclip ""
wait for 10 milliseconds
play videoclip ""
