Not very forgiving is it? I have just discovered if I put the mp3 in temporal sequence, it will work correctly in QuickTime. Go figure:


<text region="region2" src="data:text/plain,%22The%205-Day%20Forecast%22" begin="00:00" dur="00:04"/>
<img src="weather.jpg" region="region1" begin="00:05" dur="00:04"/>
<audio src="weather.mp3" id="sound" begin="00:06" dur="00:24"/>
<text region="region2" src="data:text/plain,Hello,%20my%20name%20is%20Carl%20Wells!" begin="id(sound)(00:00)" dur="00:01"/>

instead of:

<audio src="weather.mp3" id="sound" begin="00:06" dur="00:24"/>
<text region="region2" src="data:text/plain,%22The%205-Day%20Forecast%22" begin="00:00" dur="00:04"/>
<img src="weather.jpg" region="region1" begin="00:05" dur="00:04"/>
<text region="region2" src="data:text/plain,Hello,%20my%20name%20is%20Carl%20Wells!" begin="id(sound)(00:00)" dur="00:01"/>

One day QT & RP will follow a standard, I hope.

HTHelps someone?
