    I use fetch for all my transfers of .jpg/.txt/,html,/.eht/etc files for my website. I tried to upload a Quicktime movie and can't get it to show on my site. Am not sure how to send it (preferences). Was told by my tech person that it was transferring into my directory without a code to designate that it was a movie?(It plays on my desktop in quicktime). Have sent it as many different ways as I could think of?

    You should upload it in Raw Data format, and make sure the file name ends in .mov. If that does not work could you post the URL of the web page and the name of the movie file?

    I have just uploaded the file (which again, plays on my desktop by running Quicktime)... uploaded it as raw data and it had a .mov extension.

    This page has a photo linked to the movie...(which when I hit, will take me to the .mov file and I get "loading plugin", and it downloads... then has a broken "movie strip" image when it completes loading. A friend with a PC found the same thing happened on his.

    Have been using Fetch 3.3 forever...and downloaded 4.0.1 to see if it could handle it any better...
