I think you're missing TL2005.

Ingo, it works with 'This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.30.4-2.2 
(Web2C 7.5.5)' and simpdftex and a bit of Tuxedo Moon (WAV format) in 
Adobe Reader 7.0.5 and 6.0.2.

Comparing your log and mine I can't see anything obvious, except 
different versions of TeX (and dvips).

Do you have an opportunity to upgrade some other Mac's teTeX to 
*Experimental* TeX Live 2005? That's the version I am using and in 
which it works.

Do have a working QuickTime plug-in? I.e. is Adobe Reader 6.0.2 still 
able to play some elder multi-media PDF files? How is your browser 
working when you click on QuickTime content?

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
