Re: Embedding QT movie in a Flash Site

In Flash, you can create layers, so that a Flash movie can load and unload another flash movie on top of it using fairly simple actionscript. I did some work using it a few years ago. You _may_ be able to load a qt movie as a second layer instead of another Flash movie, I seem to remember that you can, but I never did, and as I said, it was a few years ago.

Anyway, worth looking into.

Although the QT file of my 5-minute trailer, produced with Compressor looks fabulous by itself, it stutters and pixilates once embedded into my Flash-based website.

Oddly, on some computers it plays well, and others not.

Some folks have recommended simply embedding it as is, as a QT file, rather than converting it to Flash.

If so, how would I embed it as a QT? Is that possible on a Flash-based site?

Here are the parameters of my file:

- made with Compressor
- Kind: QuickTime Movie
- Size: 480 x 360
- Dimensions: 480 x 360
- Codecs: H.264, AAC, Timecode
- Duration, 5:38
- Channel Count: 2
- Total Bit Rate: 1,664

Thanks, Ken
