We may have figured it out. My client is audio-proficient and made 
several different mp3 files to test. I'm not sure what wrappers he used 
exactly but we found three types that work in Windows without QT, so we 
aren't totally stuck after all.

The down side is that mp3 doesn't support cue points (he says) and we 
need those. I didn't think LC callbacks depended on the file encoding, I 
thought the player would just check its currentTime on its own. But no 
messages are being sent, so I must be wrong (does anyone know for sure?)

I could write a script that does the polling, but it seems to me 
callbacks should work.
