I have a page with Quicktime embedded, and a dropdown menu used to select the.mov file required. The files are virtual reality tours.

It all works except that the Quicktime control bar is only displayed for the initial (default) file. Once the user selects a file from the dropdown list, the Quicktime control bar disappears although the .mov file is displayed correctly. It is as though the CONTROLLER VALUE="TRUE" gets changed to FALSE. I thought TRUE was the default option anyway.

The code I am using is below:

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">

</SELECT>
</td>

</tr>
</FORM>
</table>

document.PLUGIN1.SetURL(file);

<SCRIPT TYPE="text/javascript">

else myWin = window;
if (! myWin) return true;
myWin.location = myVal;
}
return false;

Any ideas would be very welcome.
