Hi Alexander,

I think I found a bug in your package. I have downloaded the latest 
version (8th November 2004) and narrowed down the problem to this little 


The mp3 on the first page plays fine but the one on the second page does 
not play at all. If I remove the command \pagenumbering{arabic} (i.e. make 
the second page to be ii in roman) then it works fine.

If I was using PageLabels I could guess that the destinations got messed 
up somehow but I am not doing any of this in the above trivial document.

To make this test case complete I uploaded the test.tar.gz which contains 
the above small file, the log and both test1.mp3 and test2.mp3 (and the 
resulting test.pdf) here:


I also tested with movie15.sty in TeX Live 2004 which is dated 21st 
October 2004 and the result is exactly the same. I am using TeX Live 2004 
which has reasonably latest pdfLaTeX.

Kind regards
