You need a frame script to loop the playback head. The basic script is
go to the frame
This script goes in the frame script channel, which is the channel above
sprite channel 1 (and above the frame counters there the red playback head
is). Double-click the top left little grey square on the score and put this
code in there. This will keep the playback head looping allowing your movie
to continue playing. Now you will probably want to do something when the
move ends, but this will get you started.
I should also add that when it's exporting, after I click Export, it goes to a gray screen where the movie is playing in the left hand corner, about 2 minutes after that it looks like it froze then goes back to what looks like Director freezing up. (sidebars are gone, no toolbar, just the cast, script, and stage)
I hope that helps my situation a little bit.
You can see it in the 3rd picture you posted
See the verticle red line in the score. Near the top it pass through a red
square, the red square is the playback head. The red line continues above
the square. Directly beneath the top of the red line is the frame script
channel. You can drag and drop the behavior that you create into that 1
little gray square (or double click it which will create new behavior that
you can add the line of code to).
What is happening now is that your movie ends when that playback head
reaches the last frame with anything in it, which looks like about frame 30
from the picture. Depending on the frame rate your movie is playing at,
determines how quickly. If you are playing at 10 frames per second, that
means you movie will only last 3 seconds.
The script will stop this from happening. The script says something like
this in english:
"When the playback head is leaving this frame, go to this frame."
This create a loop effect. The play back head loops on which ever frame you
have the script in. The quicktime movie continues to play as expected. The
director movie does not end prematurely. See if you can get this much
The thing you will want to decide is what you want the director movie to do
when the quicktime move you have put in there ends. When you decide, come
back and I or someone else can tell you how to modify the framescript to

Dave C has given you good advice for creating a projector (executable program
However, Director is not a video editing program. What you're attempting to
do would be much easier with a video editor such as Adobe Premiere. Or in
your given example, even with QuickTime Pro.
Director's strength is in making interactive multimedia applications or games
for CDs, DVD-ROMs, Shockwave, etc.
