Checks if the container is a movie view.
With FileMaker 11, 12 and 13, you need to click on a container first to have it load a movie view with the movie. And only if container is set to picture (not the newer interactive mode). FileMaker 14 uses different control (a WebViewer), so this function doesn't work.
