I have a series of MIAW with a single QT movie in each. I am
using director's inbuilt controls to play, pause etc on buttons
which work fine.
In the QT properties I have DTS and the Controls option
ticked. In author mode everything is fine... all buttons work,
Volume control works, play / pause works and I can control the
movie using the slider. Great.......
Playing through projector the slider moves with the video but
I cant click the volume, play/pause or slider - it seems to be
blocking any cursor activity (although I have added a full screen
option when clicking the video which does work). NOW HERES THE
For one reason or another I create a "script error. Continue?
alert. (not related in any way) If I click ok the controls seem to
wake up and become active !!!! If I close the MIAW and reopen we

error ie an alternative to a script error such as update
Any help appreciated - I am using MX on Vista (going to try
it on MX04 on 2000 to see if its Vista playing silly buggers
MIAWs have a long history of misbehaving if you put things in

such as QT). I can't offer an explanation (sorry) - but your
solution (use frame 2) is the traditional fix.
