I knew you were going to say that, and I agree with you in principle. However, I would guess that 95% of the MP4-capable clients out there are QT, so it was a pragmatic move. Do you know if video/mpeg4-generic works with QT? (It probably does if its in an RFC.) If you give me a URL, and it works with QT, I'll begin switching over my servers... -- Sean > > Don't know what to tell you about your webhost, but I've generally used the following line in mime.types for webservers that I have configured: >> >> video/quicktime qt mov mp4 >> >> Of course, this most likely forces the mp4 to play with QT, but that has generally been what I've wanted to do. > >Ack!
