    Trying to figure out the best code for embedding quicktime on a page. I have tried the 'AC_RunActiveContent.js' method, but it seems to not work in IE 6? Conversely a straight <embed> seems to work in IE 6 just fine. Thoughts?

    Here's the ActiveX workaround method code I have now...
    <script src="Scripts/AC_ActiveX.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    AC_AX_RunContent( 'width','320','height','256','src','video/' ); //end AC code
    </script><noscript><object width="320" height="256">
    <embed src="video/" width="320" height="256"></embed>

    Thanks -

    that article doesn't seem to be too sure of itself (at least the quicktime one). It also doesn't address ActiveX as far as I can tell.

    So... worst case scenario for using the old school <object><embed></embed></object> method would be what, that the user would just have to click on it to get it to run? I can live with that for now. It's a temp page but I need the users to be able to see it above all, activeX be damned.

    I've found the best way is to use the JavaScript method described on Apple's "Embedding Quicktime" page:

    Just don't try to call the document.write at any other time than page load, or you'll trash the rest of the rendered page...
