I use both easymovie and hyperref in the same document and haven't yet 
encountered any problems. easymovie works like a charm, there is only 
one drawback: Preview.app doesn't display embedded Quicktime files, you 
need Acrobat Reader to play them. AFAIK this might change with Tiger, 
Apple has anounced that PDF support will be much better, but until then 
you definitely need Acrobat. I have no clue about prosper though.
