    I am putting a movie (or 3) on my website. I would like macs and windows to be able to play it. I tried to play the movies on my site here however it required some weird quicktime program. IMovie cannot export to anything but quicktime. So how should I do this?

    Thanks,
    Ted

    Hunh? Quicktime is the standard for all apple computers, and it is also available for windows. You should not have any problems with windows users viewing them, or mac users for that matter.

    It worked fine for me on windows and mac. It doesn't play emebeded in the browser on the PC though, only on the mac. Use this code to embded the quiktime movies on a webpage, it aslo checks for quicktime installed, if it is not installed it will download and install it for you.

    <object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab" height="256" width="320">
    <param name="src" value="yourmovie.mov">
    <param name="autoplay" value="true">
    <param name="controller" value="true">
    <embed height="256" width="320" src="yourmovie.mov" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/" type="video/quicktime" controller="true" autoplay="true">
    </object>

    This is the best code to use to be mac and windows compatible. You need to add the link to your movie file where it says "yourmovie.mov" . You also need to change the heght and width to fit your movie. If you want the user to see controls at the bottom of the quicktime window you need to add 16pixels to the hieght.

    Your videos work fine right now, just not very clean, its better to embed them.

    good luck.

    Type in the full path, ie http://www.yourwebsite/movies/movie.mov

    That's what I do, it seems to need the full path to work correctly.

    Ok, so what exactly is the rocket motor size you're using on those things? I remember way back in the days getting all excited about D rocket engines, and I think we had a 2 stage one that we managed to lose on the first shot. But those are a lot bigger :D

    The first one was an M 3000 there were a few L's and K's
    I only shot an H-153. The one with 7 engines had 7 "G" engines and a central "J" ya... A lot of those went to 15,000 ft.
    There was one guy screeming at the FAA "No I need my clearance now!! The NitrusOxide is leaking!! All I need is 5 minutes." Well anwoo I got it working!! http://charon.sjs.org/~ted/Bob6/Bob6.html
    O, also If your wondering what BOB 6 stands for its Blast on the Brazos ( a river in Texas) 6

    Well anyways it was cool
