You can embed the font into the project. Insert, Media, Font. It will
add the font to the list of fonts with an asterisk at the end. So if
you embed Arial, it will add "Arial *". Then you'll need to go through
all of your text members (and fields, buttons, etc) that use that font
and change the font setting to the one with the asterisk (the embedded
version). That way, it will show your font even if the user does not
have that font installed.
BuddyAPI has a command baInstallFont() that you can use to truly install
the font on someone's computer, but be sure you are using a font that
you have a legal license to install... some of them require money to be
able to do that.
Quicktime is a little different, in that the client machine MUST have QT
installed in order to view QT content. You can use BuddyAPI to test if
Quicktime is present.
baFindApp("mov") will tell you where the program is that opens mov
files. If it comes up blank, then you know that you will need to install
it. You can provide the installer on a CD or you can provide them a
link to www.quicktime.com where they can download it themselves.

baVersion("qt3") is perhaps more useful as it will tell you whether
QuickTime is installed (and what version), rather than if there is an
app associated with .mov files. In order to use QuickTime in Director,
the end user /must/ have QT installed and not just an application that
can play QuickTime movies
