playing quicktime movies

Postby staypuffinpc » Wed Apr 16, 2003 3:50 pm

Hi all,
I have a content-management system to which administrators can upload a .mov file and then I want users to be able to view/play that quicktime file, but I don't seem to be able to get it to work. I have not stored the file as a BLOB as that would slow down the database as more and more movies get added, but rather, I stored the path to the file in a MySQL db. The idea is that people choose a tip from a list and, if that tip has a movie attached to it, they can watch it in their browser. How do I go about getting the file to open and play in their browser (or download to their machine and then play?). Eventually, this will be hosted on a Mac OS X server on which qt streaming is available, but I'm building it on a normal OS X machine. Thanks for the help.
