So I'm not a total moron but my wife might argue that.

I have iMovie '06 and '08, and am a professional photographer. I want to create slide shows with music for some of the seniors and wedding clients. This in itself is not a big deal.

Where I am struggling is getting the slide show/movie onto the web (don't want to use YouTube), my preference is to use some generic media player to stream the slide show so I can either put it on a web page or in a blog.

I'd appreciate a simple tutorial or link to the best solution.

Why not just upload the .mov quicktime file to the server and embed that in your web page?

I guess I should have added that I don't want clients to have to download Quicktime or any other player in order to watch the video.

A large portion of potential clients might want to view something while at work and it is not uncommon for them to not be able to install something like QuickTime.

You might look into using Flash. It is probably the most common media delivery format so likely people have the ability to view it. Remember though, it is not guaranteed as people may not have it installed. There is no one solution that is assured to work because they all required installed software.

Your easiest choice is likely a better service than YouTube. Most if not all use Flash. Check out this list on MacWorld. A few do some form of HD.

CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
