Best way to insert Sound in Container field?

Post

When I insert a sound file in a Container field on my Mac, I get the Play/Pause controls right in the container field. This doesn't happen in Windows versions of Filemaker by default, you have to install Quicktime. 


Can it be solved without installing QT (eg with another file format)?

Also, there are some incosistent in the behavior of this:

Windows:
Insert File doesnt work (it shows a file icon instead of the loudspekar icon)
Insert Object does work, but is a more tedious way to insert files.
Insert Quicktime is not available per default

Mac:
Insert File doesnt work (it shows a file icon instead of the loudspekar icon)
Insert Object is not available
Insert Quicktime does work

I want a solution that works on both platform, as well as behave the same. Any suggestions?


Thanks,
