I was trying to load movies on the 0.95 windows version, but i got this
error (from the simple example):

java.lang.RuntimeException: Could not find movie file station.mov
at processing.core.PApplet.die(PApplet.java:1895)
at processing.core.PApplet.die(PApplet.java:1913)
at processing.video.Movie.<init>(Movie.java:175)

at processing.core.PGraphics.requestDisplay(PGraphics.java:520)
at processing.core.PApplet.run(PApplet.java:1009)
at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

I installed the QuickTime 7 with the registration process (is QT7Pro now)
but without success.
I also tried installing the full windows version of Processing 0.95

If i try it with the 0.93b version i haven't got any problem.

confirmed, should be a simple fix for 0096. (not .96, we're not four
releases from 1.0!)

The same problem happens under Mac 10.4 with QT7. It is a path issue -- at least for me. If
the file is referenced by URL on the Inernet it loads or if it is a local file specified by a
COMPLETE path name, it also works, but the standard file name relative to the data directory
doesn't work.

yeah, i changed how the paths work in an attempt to simplify openStream() and how it's
used by the other libraries, it was a single line goof that should be easy to repair.

fixed for 0096.
