Xtras can be included in 2 ways:
1. Embedded in the projector.
2. Kept as an external file.
Since '2' is the most common approach, I'll explain how to do it this way first.
In the location of the exe, create a folder called 'Xtras'. Then go to the
Macromedia Director Program Folder on your hard drive and look for a folder called
Xtras. If you're using MX or below, it will be in the main program folder. If
you're using MX2004, it will be in a folder called 'Configuration.' Once you find
this folder, look in the 'Media Element' subfolder, then you'll see a folder
called 'QT'. So, this may be at:
C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Director MX 2004\Configuration\Xtras\Media Element\QT
The files in here need to be copied into the Xtras folder created alongside your
I have a tutorial on creating a projector, including setting up the Xtras folder
So, look there for more info.
Option '1' i mentioned, embedding the Xtras in a projector, is also covered in my
