You could link to the video file itself, without any HTML code around it, but then you'd loose the ability to give the viewer information about the video, with links back to your site. That's what I don't want to have happen, people just linking to the .mov file and loosing all the information about me and the video. are you also using poster movies? if you place a poster on your blog, which could be on typepad, then the poster movie can load the real video from any viable url, which could be from where you're hosting the video from. the other advantate of the poster movie is that viewers are only looking at stuff that's the same size as a jpeg and it only downloads if and whne they request it. cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/adrian interactive networked video || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog research blog || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/ [View]

I looked at poster movies a while ago and chose to use a jpg since it was smaller. But if you are saying that I can use a poster movie, a small file, and have that load the video only when the user clicks on the play button, it's a great solution for me on TypePad. I'll have to look into this some more. If it works, then the TypePad archive page for that video will still have all the info I want people to read. --------- [ Please Note ] --------- If my email hosting service is rejecting your replies, please give me a phone call.

Regarding the poster movies: I can't seem to play them :o( When I open any of Adrian's movies in QT I just get the poster - the normal Play/Forward/Rewind buttons aren't in the player. If I click the image it's like the cursor flickers between a normal arrow and the hand that designates hyperlinks. Nothing happens though. I'm running my browser without plugins because I don't like things like videos playing without me saying so. Thus I'm downloading all files to my harddrive before playing. - Andreas [View]

Thus I'm downloading all > files to my harddrive before playing. the qt plugin is what drives the video. you can't get the video without the poster movie loading the real movie, though once you've got the real video you can sometimes download them. but most of my work uses child movies so you can't download the video. i've got a discussion of child movies on my blog. visit http://hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog and search on child movies (or childmovies can't remember). there are cross platform issues in my work. but at this point in what *i* do i treat it as experimental and not about access. however, if you've got a full install of qt 6 they should play. but you do have to mouse into the loaded movies for them to 'work'. most of the work is *not* sit back and let it play. cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit...
