Hi, I'm trying to get a Quicktime movie to show up on a website. I have no problem getting the movie to play, however, I cannot get the controls to show up, no matter what I try. Currently I'm using the method below:

http://www.w3schools...a_quicktime.asp

the movie will play if i have autoplay set to true. If I have autoplay set to false then the movie just doesn't play and there is no way to start it as the controls are not visible. I've tested this in Firefox, IE and Chrome and results are the same.

Any thoughts would be appreciated

Thanks,
Jimmy

Thanks, I did try having the value set to true as well.

I guess the issue was that the movie was not set to the original dimensions. ie. the Quicktime movie was originally created with 500 X 500 dimensions, on the webpage I was trying to shrink it down to 300 X 300 which was cutting off the controls... stupid Quicktime .mov files don't allow resizing the same way .mpeg files do with controls...ah well.

Cheers!

We all learn these things at times. Never used Quicktime that much so that's good to know. Glad you got it working.
