Running quicktime from a command line

Is there any way you can run a quick time movie and specify it to run full-screen from the command line? This will run a specific movie - "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QuickTimePlayer.exe "demomovie.mov"", I just want to know if you can pass other arguments, such as run full screen, like you can with Windows Media Player.

I don't have a definite answer but suspect that it's a No. My reason for saying that is that when I installed QuickTime to a CD I found that it wouldn't run from CD-R due to it having file rewriting requirements. It worked OK when installed to a CD-RW though and run from the CD Writer since that fitted the requirement. I therefore doubt if it would work at DOS level since it couldn't update it's Windows files with the Windows system inactive.
