Question about embedded Quicktime file (2 posts)

    I want to embed 5 quicktime files onto a single web page, but rather than have all 5 movie boxes appear when the page is viewed, i would like to have a link or picture for each file appear instead..and then when that is clicked on, the movie will open and play. Does anyone know if there is a parameter i can add to my code (or any other solution) to make that happen?

    thank you so much,

    If you want just a line of text that shows the movie when you click on it, you would set it up the same way you set up a link to other webpages. But the target of your link would be your movie file, instead of another webpage.

    In HTML code, this is an example of how you would do this:

    This is my first movie.

    If your movies are in a different folder, for instance one called "MyMovies", you would include that folder's name in the link reference:

    This is my first movie.

    If you wanted to instead show a picture and have the movie play when you click on the picture, you would put an image tag inside the link tag:

    <img src="Picture1.jpg">

    I hope this helps.
