I have followed the tutorial located here Apple - QuickTime - Tutorials - Embed Tag Attributes and and got nothing. I have taken the code from QuickTime Compatibility and nothing.

If I take the full path to my video and plug it into firefox address bar it plays. I just want to embed the video in an html page and so far cannot.

Here is my test code so far

Code:
<html><head>
</head><body>
<object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab" height="768" width="1024">
<param name="SRC" value="http://www.nizex.com/videos/language/1/8/mv_calendar.mov">
<param name="AUTOPLAY" value="true">
<param name="CONTROLLER" value="false">
<embed src="http://www.nizex.com/videos/language/1/8/mv_calendar.mov" autoplay="true" controller="false" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/" height="768" width="1024">

</object></body></html>
If anyone can give me a heads up on what I am doing wrong here that would be great. I have looked all over for help with this and tried all I know to do.

A link to my test page is here https://lizzybeta.nizex.com/testvideo.html

Thank you for your time

Played just fine for me when I went to your sample page.

Although I don't think you're going to want to stream video through a secure server link (https) if you can avoid it - there's going to be a lot of work on your web server to encrypt the data and it will most likely get bogged down if you have a lot of simultaneous views.

well the https cannot be helped. I am not streaming for outside traffic. This is to be on a dedicated server for a company and only used by the employees logged into the system.

As far as the video my friend says it streams fine in linux on FF and in windows. I have it working for me in safari on mac. I am on a mac and nothing loads for me in firefox.

Well, I looked at your actual code again and it's not streaming the video over https, just the main page (you're accessing the video files themselves via http).

As long as you have Quicktime installed on all of the machines that may watch the video you should be able to get away with:

<embed src="http://www.nizex.com/videos/language/1/8/mv_calendar.mov" width="1024" height="768"> </embed>

that single line I tested in a small html file and loaded it in Safari, Firefox (OSX), IE8 and they all loaded and played the video. How exactly did you create your embed line when you tried it out (referring to what you said in the first line of your original post)

Do you have quicktime installed on all of the systems?

yeah nothing works in my version of FF on mac. I have tried just the object tag, object with embed, and just the embed tag like you described. It loads in other browsers but not in FF on mac for me. I have some more testing to find out why...

thanks for the replies

The only difference is I have 3.6.3 in firefox. The only other difference is I wasn't trying to access the page with the embedded file in https on firefox - it's possible that your firefox security is blocking it because the main page is https yet the embedded file is being pulled via http (I don't use firefox enough to know if this is a possible block in FF - I know in IE it can/will warn on some sites about loading non-secure data when connected to a secure site).

Try out creating a small file on your desktop, maybe test.html and put in it:

Code:
<HTML>
<HEAD>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<embed src="http://www.nizex.com/videos/language/1/8/mv_calendar.mov" width="1024" height="768"> </embed>
</body>
</html>
Save it and then open that file in FF and see if the video starts to play.

Also have you checked your Applications settings within Firefox to make sure there is an association for .mov to use quicktime? Do you have anything disabled by chance?

Hmm, I wonder something - do you have a brand new Mac? If you do, I wonder - I think the plugin for FireFox is designed for Quicktime 7 - all of the entries I see in my Applications section for Quicktime Player refer to using QT Plug-in 7.6.6 - which was the last version of Quicktime before QT X.

If you have a brand new Mac with Snow Leopard, you may not have QT7 installed - go to your Utilities folder in your Applications and see if you have QT Player 7 there - if you don't get your OS disc and in the extras section you should be able to install QT 7 from there.

I'm not sure if FF will auto detect it or if you'll need to delete preferences or anything to get it to search to see what's available on the system.

I'm probably 100% wrong on this, but right now it's the only thing I could imagine that could be causing you grief You should have a whole bunch of entries in Applications under FF preferences for Quicktime Player, including QT Player 7 Document, which should be what it considers a .mov file.
