Looks like sounds are automatically added to the initial page output 
in the dynamic view - I'm guessing that they show up in a hidden menu 
somewhere.  But for those of us who don't have Quicktime installed, we 
get an annoying message everytime we load the page that I am missing 
plugins.  This is very confusin, especially since it is not 
immediately clear why I need a sound playback plugin.

It would be much better UI if these media files could be loaded on demand.

I get this error and I thought it was something unique to my system.   
Perhaps even a mention of quicktime or alternatives in the INSTALL 
file or somewhere else might be a good idea?  Thanks.
