It's impossible in every direction!

You can't embed a Quicktime movie in a SWF.

You can add a Flash track to a Quicktime movie, but only Flash 4 
actions will work in Quicktime 5.

The only way you can accomplish what you want would be to export your 
Quicktime movie as a bitmap sequence with a frame rate equal to your 
Flash movie, and then import that sequence into Flash which might 
work for a very short QT movie or be OK for a CD ROM. When I did that 
for a project, I found all the info I needed on the Macromedia site.
