    Can't get QT movie to play in iWeb
    Greetings

    I have done a search for the answer to this, but no luck.

    I've dragged the movie in question to a movie page and it plays well in iWeb.
    On checking out the site http://web.mac.com/asmitchell/iWeb/S...he%20Moor.html I find that it simply refuses to play.

    Any ideas please?

    Cheers Mitcherooney

    I clicked on your link but got a 'page not found' error. Did you remember to republish it?

    The movie did play for me this time.

    What appears to be happening is the movie has no streaming hints, so the browser is downloading the entire clip before it begins playing. I first saw the large Quicktime symbol which after some time, like a minute or so, gave way to the actual video.

    When I export my movies I use expert export mode where you can give the movie a hint regarding streaming. This is difficult to explain without knowing which software you are saving from. See attached image and bottom seleciton on it.
