sorry, this is my code for the quicktime embed video
<OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" WIDTH="600" HEIGHT="355"
<PARAM name="SRC" VALUE="Assets/Home%3AReel/100429LauBrandonReel.mov" />
<PARAM name="AUTOPLAY" VALUE="false">
<PARAM name="CONTROLLER" VALUE="true">
<EMBED SRC="Assets/Home%3AReel/100429LauBrandonReel.mov" WIDTH="600" HEIGHT="355" AUTOPLAY="false" CONTROLLER="true" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/">
i took out the opening tags so that they would show
(fixed code - c)
You can try to add type="video/quicktime" to the embed. It does work for me on Linux like it is now.
On this forum you need to use the HTML entity < for "<" and > for ">". Use the CODE button after you have selected the text to put the text in a CODE block
so I added the type into the coding but its still not showing up. i really have no idea what to do, any help i would greatly appreciate
I'm not seeing a type in the code on http://www.brandonleelau.com/
Try this code:
<EMBED SRC="Assets/Home%3AReel/100429LauBrandonReel.mov" WIDTH="600" HEIGHT="355" TYPE="video/quicktime" AUTOPLAY="false" CONTROLLER="true" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/"> </EMBED>

This same issue is happening to me with a site I am building.
The video will show up in Safari okay... but Firefox just sits with the Quicktime logo and doesn't go anywhere else.

I'm on Linux. There is no QuickTime for the Linux platform, but I see the player loading (caching) that movie. The Gecko Media Player doesn't seem to be able to play that file embedded, but does play it if I open the .mov file directly in the player.

Does that mean the embed code is malformed in some way? Even when I try and strip down the code of the options I still can't get it to work.
It doesn't seem that it is malformed if it is playing in Safari okay.
I am pretty much at a standstill with the build-out of this website until I can get this sorted out. I have found several instances where this has happened to other people - but no solutions.
I see PLENTY of websites with embedded QT files that work fine in Firefox. Surely there has to be some easy solution.
This doesn't even make sense. I visited the link above: www.brandonleelau.com.
Viewed source and copied the embed code (which is working for me - I can play the video fine). I pasted it into my 'video-player.php' file, and hard-coded the link to the video file (instead of passing the string via the URL).
It didn't work. I get the same Quicktime Q... and nothing more.
These videos are rendered using the H.264 codec, which is pretty standard.
I just let the window sit open, and it looks like it won't play the movie until it is completely downloaded. Once I left the window open for several minutes and the movie fully downloaded - it played.
This doesn't really help me because I need it to begin playing when launched... and download the rest of the movie as it plays.
There hasn't been any new posts on this thread for a while, but I wanted to know, Brandon, if there has been some progress with the problem you were encountering. I see that your quicktime movies still do not load in firefox.
I am a video editor and motion graphic artist and I am having the same issue with a quicktime movie on my site. By the way, I am impressed with your work!
Any solutions that you may have stumbled across?
