I'm trying to build up a presatation using the prosper class. Most of 
the presentetion will consist in images and movies. After playing a 
little bit with prosper hyperref and so on, I've ended up with a some 

1) How can I include tiff or jpeg files directly using graphicx. 
Searching the Net for a solution I've found something like this:

\DeclareGraphicsRule{.tif}{eps}{.tif.bb}{`tiff2ps -e #1}

where .tif.bb files are files that contain the bounding box 
coordinates. But it doesn't work. :-( Any other suggestions?

2) How can I get movies playback inline, I mean without having 
QuickTime Player that opens as a separate application?

3) If I can't get an inline playback, how can I get an image as a link 
to start a movie?

4) Last question: Apple Preview seems doesn't show movies nor starts up 
Quicktime. Is there a way to fix this? I'd highly prefer to use it 
instead of Acrobat Read because I've noticed that it renders images 
much better.

I hope that anyone can  help me.

Thanks in advance,
