    Movie displaying problem...

    Hello,

    I done Internet presentation for my client and presentation is placed on Brinkster...

    Displaying movies is a part of presentation...

    Those are .mov files...

    As movie container I use Quicktime...

    My problem is:

    I have to wait to full movie loading...

    Wait and wait...

    When the movie is loaded then display starts...

    Sometimes, it can take a long time...

    I want to achieve effect with movie slider in my Quicktime container...

    In other words, I want that movie begins to play before the end of full loading...

    How can I achieve this?

    My code is here:


    ...

    <script language="Javascript">
    <!-- hide from pre-script browsers
    if( haveqt )
    {
    // document.write( '<embed src="rain.mov" width=400 height=400>' );
    document.write( '<TABLE WIDTH=100% BORDER=0 CELLSPACING=1 CELLPADDING=1>' );
    document.write( ' <TR>' );
    document.write( ' <TD align="center">' );
    if( document.SpeedSettings.high_speed.value == "no" )
    document.write( ' <EMBED SRC="images/ShortFilm/Bucephalus/modemwebbuceph.mov" WIDTH="288" HEIGHT="210" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/index.html" AUTOPLAY="TRUE" CACHE="FALSE" KIOSKMODE="TRUE">' );
    else
    document.write( ' <EMBED SRC="images/ShortFilm/Bucephalus/webbuceph.mov" WIDTH="288" HEIGHT="210" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/index.html" AUTOPLAY="TRUE" CACHE="FALSE" KIOSKMODE="TRUE">' );
    document.write( ' </EMBED>' );
    document.write( ' </TD>' );
    document.write( ' </TR>' );
    document.write( '</TABLE>' );
    document.write( '<TABLE ALIGN=center WIDTH=41% BORDER=0 CELLSPACING=1 CELLPADDING=1>' );
    document.write( ' <TR>' );
    document.write( ' <TD ALIGN=right>' );
    document.write( ' <font color="#ffffff" face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">' );
    document.write( ' <A style="text-decoration: none" href="Bucephalus.asp">' );
    document.write( ' Exit' );
    document.write( ' </A>' );
    document.write( ' </font>' );
    document.write( ' </TD>' );
    document.write( ' </TR>' );
    document.write( '</TABLE>' );
    }
    else
    {
    document.write( '<br><br><br><br>' );
    document.write( '<p align=center>You do not seem to have <a href="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/index.html" onclick="javascript:window.open( this.href ); event.returnValue=false;">QuickTime</p>' );
    }
    //-->
    </script>

    ...



    Thank you in advance,

    It's not your code that's the problem. It's the treatment of your QT movies. They need setting up to stream or progressively download using something like Media Cleaner....
