    Quicktime and Web Design

    I have a Quicktime movie I'd like to use in a web page. I am a newbie when it comes to web page building. Will I be better off converting Quicktime's .mov format to something else? I've heard horror stories about using QT!

    Personally I've never had a lot of luck with Quicktime, but I also think you'd be unlucky to have a "horror story" with it. It has its quirks and annoyances but it's not that bad. If you have a well-encoded clip it can perform very nicely.

    Rather than convert exclusively to a different format, can you make more than one option available? EG. If you provide both Quicktime and Windows Media you'll satisfy most people and be able to compare performances.

    Re: Quicktime and Web Design

    Thanks Dave for the prompt reply. However, as I said I am rather a newbie and though I am doing well setting up the regular pages - it is not so easy for me when it comes to video. I can't even figure out how to set up a viewer's choice of using either Quicktime or WMP!
