If I could put the text directly into the SMIL file I would have no issues making this. But the way I understand it I have to have the text in a seperate text file which is then imported. I'm already saving two files for each comment (the video, and a title image). I feel that the value added isn't worth the work involved - you already have the chapter titles and links to people websites (just click inside the quicktime window and your browser should go to their website). > --instructions on how to save as a file to your own computer...] > > also, must the video be streamed? > i hate the buffering? The way I see this is a job for the Apple/Quicktime software developers, not a job for you and I. :o) The player should have a button that saved all the different parts of a SMIL presentation to your harddrive. > can the videos be MPEG 4? is that MOV? My original post is an MPEG 4 quicktime file. I think all the comments are not MPEG 4. Both work it seems. > can we stitch WMV and MOV togther? It should be possible in Real Player, but since Quicktime can't play WMV files it's not possible in Quicktime. - Andreas -- Personal: <http://www.solitude.dk&gt; File Thingie - PHP File Manager <http://www.solitude.dk/filethingie/&gt;
