    I've read that Quicktime movies in web pages actually work in Safari when browsing the Internet with the iPhone, but how do they display?

    Do they display in the website just as they do on Apple.com within normal browser-window, or are you taken to a new page with the video only?

    They display full screen after you hit a little play button in the corner of the video as displayed on the webpage. They will not play in place like they do on a desktop computer.

    I get a play icon with a line through it (like a non-smoking symbol). How do I get the QT clips from my site to work? Is there a plug-in?

    No plug-in. Go to Apple Developer Connection for details.

    Code:
    <EMBED SRC="poster.jpg" HREF="movie.m4v" TYPE="video/x-m4v" TARGET="myself" SCALE="1" ...>

    a small recap from the site and own experience.
    1. make sure your webserver supports byte-ranges
    2. add the correct mime-types

    cheers,
