Can't get QuickTime movies to show up!

I'm wondering if anyone has seen this problem that I have. I'm a newbee.

My project has about 27 windows, and each one has a QuickTime movie
embedded. When I run the project it all works fine. If I compile, the
application does not show any of the movies. Support recommended I try
increasing more memory to the app, but that did not seem to have an
effect (and in Mac OS X, should not matter).

So, you're compiling on Mac OS X? And "embedded" means you're
importing the movie into the project? AFAIK, imported movies have
*never* worked in the OS X version of RB. One possible workaround is
to compile the project on Mac OS 9 (that is, compile for Mac OS X,
but using the Classic version of RB to do so). m.

Definitely DO NOT add the movies to your project file and then call assign
them in the properties window. This will not work in your built app even
though it does work during debug. Your best bet is to get a folderitem to
the movie, then assign the movie property of your player with
"movieplayer1.movie = f.openasmovie" where movieplayer1 is the name of your
movie player and f is the folder item representing the folder item of your
movie on your disk. I just went through this same hassle myself and this
was the only way I could get it to work. I am building for classic, however
and can't vouch for this on X. Hope this helps you and mail me if you need
any more help.
