    Apple -> MacBook Pro -> Design -> Interactive Gallery -> Illuminated Keyboard

    *I am using Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.3

    I can view it using Firefox 3.6.3, but can't view it using Safari 4.0.5.

    However, when I right-click 'Inspect Element' on that video-showing area, and then continuously click the HTML codes that contain the movie URL, Safari 4.0.5 can play it.

    Do you encounter the same problem as me? Thanks in advance!

    Cannot view it either: all I get is a blue question mark and a loading spokie-thing.

    Same problem here. Safari 4.0.5 on Mac OS X 10.6.3. I tested with and without Safari AdBlocker enabled, but that didn't make any difference.

    There is a "report bugs to Apple" menu item in Safari.

    That blue question mark means that you dont have the codec to play the video (if it was broken then itd show a torn paper), a simple way to fix this is to install a package application that contains many types of codecs, I use Perian. It is a free, and widely used app that integrates into your computers preferences, allowing you to run many video types. Go to http://perian.org/

    You'd think that Apple's own website wouldn't use such an esoteric codec! I've also had problems playing some of Apple's videos in Chrome.

    I am running perian and it isn't working for me...

    To the OP, if you collapse the video-id element you can get the link to the actual movie:
    http://movies.apple.com/movies/us/a...cbookpro_keyboard_clip_20081014_r640-9cie.mov

    This plays just fine.

    Also, it might just be dumping because this image doesn't exist:

    Thank you for all your replies!

    I tried to launch Safari in 32-bit mode,
    it will show up a... picture, but I guess it is the first frame of the movie,
    as I can't see those options like 'Save Image...' in the right-click menu.

    Still don't know why...

    Any replies are welcomed! Thanks in advance!!
