Summary: Embed QuickTime
content on wiki sites.
Embed QuickTime content on wiki sites.
Use the normal Attach: syntax but wrap it with the quicktime markup:
(:quicktime Attach:myfile.ext arg1=someting arg2=something:)
or to embed a file from another group:
(:quicktime Attach:GroupName./myfile.ext arg1=someting arg2=something:)
or if embedding an external file, be sure to drop the
(:quicktime http://www.externalwebsite.com/myfile.ext arg1=someting arg2=something:)
The arguments can be tag attributes as described here. Normaly it is at least the height and width of a movie file. If you show the controller you should reserve 16 additional pixel height for it.

hi - it doesn't seem possible to load quicktime video/audio from a group other than the one currently viewed. for instance,
(:quicktime Attach:Group./test.mp3:) fails. how can this be alleviated? thx - overtones99 December 20, 2009, at 02:15 AM
the solution i've come up with is this:
in the recipe, change:
$filepath = FmtPageName("$UploadFileFmt/".$path, $pagename);
if(!strpos($path,"./")) $filepath = FmtPageName("$UploadFileFmt/".$path, $pagename);
else $filepath = FmtPageName("

any progress on getting MOVs from external URLs to load yet?
doesn't seem to work, even if the suggestion of adding $QuickTimeExternalResource = 1 is heeded...

after looking around in the code of this recipe, figured out that external links must NOT be preceded by
Attach:, or else it will fail... added some example code above for adding external URL file... overtones99 April 21, 2008, at 07:34 PM
thanks for the recipe.
i'm finding that the whole video (with controller) will only display correctly if i include scale=aspect - if i leave that out, the vid gets chopped (in both firefox & safari). also, the clip (with scale=aspect enabled) displays indented in safari (weird), but aligned left in firefox (expected).
1. is the indentation in safari a browser-issue, or a recipe-issue?
2. how can i set up some default variables? for instance, i would like it if any video that is put on the page includes the scale=aspect in the code, unless supplied by the user...

I, too, can only get files uploaded to the server to be embedded but not external URLs. Any suggestions? - Jeff, October 1, 2007
I also can't get it to work... also not with the asumed included $QuickTimeExternalResource = 1; (because without the $ and ; it will generate and error!)
It works. Thanks for your help! Cari, 3/2/2006
I can't get this to display- do I need to have anything else included or enabled?
I have tried with local and remote quicktime urls, the end result is the URL is displayed in a non clickable form, but the embed of the movie does not happen. Jen 7/7/06
For remote URLs you have to include
QuickTimeExternalResource = 1
into your config file. I'm not shure what you mean with local urls, but if you mean
this is not implemented at the moment. - Schlaefer
