Ugg. Sounds like a mime issue. I'm sending, as per Apple's docs, application/x-quicktimeplayer. I figured if they got it right on Windows, they would be able to get it right on their own bloody OS. What version of Quicktime do you have, what browser are you using and what are its mime settings for anything with the word "quicktime" in it? I can of course send video/quicktime, but then it will display in the browser rather than in a seperate QT player. If I'm forced to display the playlist in a browser then I might as well use html and javascript. SMIL is supposed to be cross platform and thus have all sorts of wholesome goodness attached. The reality is Real and Quicktime need SMIL tweaked so as to be incompatible with each other. alan
