  Movieplayer plays movies from the hard drive.  In general,
  Moviemaker edits movies directly on disk, although in 6.2, 
  some types of edits are made in memory (to be written to
  disk later). 

  It is entirely possible to write an application which plays
  movies entirely from memory (see below for details), but
  Movieplayer does not support that.

  We can read a movie up to 2 gigabytes long off the hard drive.
  Please note, however, that some file formats may impose smaller 
  maximum file sizes.
