the whole structore of this (and similar) mov file remonds me to
the DVD navigation shit. still images, multiple tracks, on-the-fly
codec changes, programmed delay and playback order/sequence,
interactive controls in the file (think of all those reference movs)...
if we want to support all this shit we have to reimplement the whole
quicktime 6 player from scratch...
