    Unhappy How to add Quicktime .mov to HTML

    Now this is a really dumb question but I just can't seem to get it working and have found many things on the net but they all seem to be bits not the whole storey.

    OK so how does a real dummy add a quicktime movie to HTML I just want it to start playing. I am using dreamweaver MX if this makes any differance.

    What I found

    Hi all.

    I know that this thread is extremely old, but it was the first one that popped up when I was searching for help.

    I have been looking to embed .mov files to my website and tried numerous codes around the net. I thought I would pop along and share what I have found. I am aware that solutions may have been found but I am sure there will be people who will still be searching for answers.

    This is the exact code (minus the web and file name) I used to play a video on my site. it may only work for windows users, I am not sure. (if you are a mac user please let us know )

    <object id="MediaPlayer1" CLASSID="CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95" codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701"
    standby="Loading Microsoft Windows® Media Player components..." type="application/x-oleobject" width="280" height="256">
    <param name="fileName" value="http://www.yourwebsite.com/uploads/video.avi">
    <param name="animationatStart" value="true">
    <param name="transparentatStart" value="true">
    <param name="autoStart" value="true">
    <param name="showControls" value="true">
    <param name="Volume" value="-450">
    <embed type="application/x-mplayer2" pluginspage="http://activex.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/" src="http://www.yourwebsite.com/uploads/video" name="MediaPlayer1" width=280 height=256 autostart=1 showcontrols=1 volume=-450>

    You will probably notice the file is a .avi - This is how I got the .mov file to play. In the ftp folder that you uploaded your .mov file to, simply change the file extension to .avi - I did this with a .wmv and a .mov file and they both worked with this code.

    If this defeats the object of playing a .mov file then I am sorry, but this is the only way I could find how to play them.
    I hope this helps some people in some way

    If you wish to see it working, go to www.sportbook.3owl.com - I used a sample video from windows just to test it

    Yes, Thank you for your nice sharing.
    I just have learned how to convert PDF to HTML a few months ago.
    I'm testing the related work about adding Quicktime .mov to HTML nowadays.
    It will be helpful for me.
    Thanks again.

    Best regards,

    This is the most basic method of embedding a file into a web page.

    <embed src="quicktime.mov"></embed>
