This is because it goes through the file-association feature of GridFlow, 
and it doesn't find that suffix, so, it can't associate it automatically 
with the quicktime-handler... that's how [#out] works. Then [#record] 
could force the use of quicktime, but it doesn't, because it uses «open» 
with only one argument.

If you change [#record] so that its «open $1» becomes «open quicktimeapple 
$1», it will work.

([#out] can't complain about the problem in any better way, because it 
can't know that it's wrong : a format handler is not required to take an 
argument... for example «open quartz» makes [#out] open a window)

[#out] and [#record] don't use audio at all.
