I asked that question a couple of days ago.
do a search for:
xtras for displaying video without installing quicktime
it's always worth a search of the archive before you post.

>i want to show some movies in my director file.
>The viewers of the cd-rom all play it on windows systems and all dont have quicktime installed. They also dont have admin privileges so i cant promt them to install anything.
>It doesnt mather wich codec or extension i use, it seems to me you always need Quicktime or an (expensive) Xtra to show people movies and i dont want that.
>Does anyone know the answer, it doenst mather for me if it would be .avi, .mpg, .wmv or whatsoever as long as people can view it without them to have Quicktime or whatever.
>Thanks in advanced,

>P.S. If i try to import a .avi movie (or link it as an external file) i get prompted to make a choice between Avi and Quicktime, when i choose AVI the program freezes but when i do Quicktime it all works fine but (as i told) i dont want quicktime. Thanks again...
