QuickTime: Displaying Your Controller Correctly
In HTML Pages
If you've ever placed a QuickTime Movie
into your HTML page you may have noticed you had to add some extra
space around it to get the controller to display correctly.
This is because the controller is part
of the movie and you must adjust the movie to accomodate the height.
Here is an example of the controller not
being displayed correctly. As you can see, part of it has been cut
off or not displayed.
When you want to use the controller in
your movies, you must add an ADDITIONAL 16
pixels to the height of your movie.
So, if your movie is 640x480 you must
add 16 to the height. In this case, your movie would be 640x496.
<embed src="mymovie.mov" width="640"
Now, if you're embedding a Sound only
movie, you would make the movie's height 16 and adjust the width
to a number that fits well in your page.
Setting the Width to 33 for a Sound only
movie, the controller displays only a Play and Pause button.
It is not recommended to set your height
and width values less than 2 pixels each for hidden movies.
