Make a Video CD w/o Quicktime ?? - Macromedia Director Basics

Is it possible with director MX 2004 to create a CD for windows that will play a video that does not require the user's computer to have quicktime? Just put it in - and the movie plays... If not, what are my other options (Iv'e tried in Flash, but the projector seems to choke the computer) Thanks...

    The common scheme with previous director versions was to play mpeg-1
    files using DirectMedia or AdvancedMPEG xtra. As long as DirectMedia
    services are available as in normal windows installation one is in
    business.

    Hi,
    if you want maximum portability you have to take a xtra like
    MPEGAdvance and encode your video in MPEG-1.

    Of course you could bundle your application with quicktime for windows
    but there is no guarantee that the users likes installing a new
    application nor he has the system privileges to do so.

    I havent looked at MX2004 yet, maybe it brings along a mpeg-player so
    that there is no more need to take a xtra anymore ... (?)

    Thanks guys,
    I am really in a bind here, and would greatly appreciate any further help on
    this...

    1) MPEG - same as Motion JPEG? - what programs can I use to create this...
    will after effects, premiere, or iMovie do it?

    2) DirectMedia or AdvancedMPEG xtras... I don't see them in MX 2004... MPEG 3
    import/export is the closest.
    what's the deal here?

    Thanks for responding!
