It is also worth noting that you can obtain the size of a movie without needing an NSMovieView. You can ask NSMovie for its QuickTime movie with -[NSMovie QTMovie] and then use GetMovieNaturalBoundsRect() to get its size. The following category on NSMovie is generally useful.

@implementation NSMovie (NSMovieExtensions)

- (NSSize)size;
Movie movie;
Rect movieRect;

movie = [self QTMovie];
GetMovieNaturalBoundsRect(movie, &movieRect);

return NSMakeSize(movieRect.right - movieRect.left, movieRect.bottom -;


Hope this helps.
