Tue, 07 Jun 2011 10:53:53 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.6.1 By: Fred Malenfant http://www.kenvillines.com/archives/82.html#comment-126 Fred Malenfant Mon, 06 Oct 2008 02:36:16 +0000 http://www.kenvillines.com/blog/?p=82#comment-126 I followed your instructions about the QTL file creation, because I wanted my Revision3 shows to start in quicktime player full screen, and it worked almost fine. But it seems to be a trouble with QTL and Quicktime player (I use the latest one). Like another one post here, I got the 2048 error telling me that quicktime does not support a file format. But, this error is random, if I retry the exact same file 30 seconds later, it may work! And, if take the SRC file source and I use “open url” directly in quicktime, it always works fine. So I think that Apple may have a bug to correct in QT player when loading QTL files. Site to test this issue: http://www.fredericmalenfant.com/Revision3QuicktimePlayer.aspx

Sorry, I missed your post. I haven’t tried my instructions with the latest version of QT. I guess I need to do that. Apple has broken so many things over the last couple of years it is hard to keep up. When I have some time on my plate I will check it out…Ken

Works with your link, but not when I direct it to my own qtl file. Is there some sort of size limit on the .mov file? I have a few hours to complete my project and this is just killing me.

In Safari, when you click on the .qtl file, it automatically spawns the QuickTime Player which is what it should do. However, in Firefox, it asks you if you want to save it to disk or open with a chosen app. Is there a way aroung this so that it spawns in Firefox the same way it does in Safari?

I am not sure what the difference is? I would join the free online developer program Apple has and then report a bug here:

I don’t have the latest version of QT but will upgrade this week. I will then try what you have reported. Thx for the info.

-Ken

There are other issues with .qtl files which do not behave as they did before.

I have a problem with .qtl code which works perfectly in QT6.5.2 but not in Quicktime 7.0.4. I have three .qtl files that spawn each other with QTNEXT links. The first .qtl file is called PART1.qtl:

T”
/>

This plays PART1.mov and links to PART 2.qtl:

T”
/>

…which plays PART2.mov and links to the last file PART3.qtl:

I expected the files to play in sequence – as they do with 6.5.2. Instead I get nothing happening at all in QT7.0.4. – just the blue Q error screen.

(This method is perfect for streaming large files in sequence from CD when you don’t want to have them load into memory before playing. They just sort of coast along from the CD. But not in QT7.0.4 (or other QT7 versions???).

Uninstalling QT7 and reinstalling QT6.5.2 and it all works again.

I assume it is a bug or another deliberate difference in the way the versions handle .qtl files. But why?
