QT media player with variable playback speed.

Original Apple QuickTime Player (a crude demo software shell, not the real
thing) modified to support variable playback speeds. In O2 steps. Self
explanatory for most part.
--
Three ways to start/stop the playback: a) - use play button, b) use space
bar or c) double-click inside the movie window. The last one may engender
some confusion occasionally.
--
Use OPTION-Click&Drag to drag your windows around. Resize with the resize
box (lower-right).
--
Use shift drag in the slider to make a partial selection.
--
Stage Mode means next time you open a movie (or more precisely any QuickTime
media file) the "movie" starts in full screen mode with controller not
showing. Unfortunately there is no way to get it to start playing
automatically (limitation of Apple provided API) so you will have to hit the
space bar to get it going.
--
You will see a glitch here and there especially when playing at nonstandard
speeds. These reflect problems with the underlying technology (QT) not the
quality of this coding ioho. For reasons unknown this (and the original)
software hangs up on 3ivx encoded media.
