  1. for the mac view, all you need is:

    <embed src=’path_to_your_movie.mov’ width=’666′ height=’*’ loop=’BOOL’ align=’CENTER’ autoplay=’BOOL’ controller=’BOOL’></embed>

    where BOOL is true/false and height is 16 for just audio and for vids is 16+height of your movies (the control bar is 16px high). You can screw around with the dimensions but you’ll crash it if you go below 2×2.

    On PCs running crappy XP w/service pack 2, their fucked-up ActiveX crap requires you wrap the embed in an object. You have to have the ‘classid’, ‘codebase’ and ‘pluginspage’ params set the vars listed or the shit won’t work. It’s crap. So now you need:

    <object classid=”clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B” width=”666″
    height=”*” codebase=”http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab”>
    <param name=”src” value=”path_to_movie.mov”>
    <param name=”autoplay” value=”true”>
    <param name=”controller” value=”false”>
    <embed src=’path_to_your_movie.mov’ width=’666′ height=’*’ loop=’BOOL’ align=’CENTER’ autoplay=’BOOL’ controller=’BOOL’
    pluginspage=”http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/”>
    </embed>
    </object>

    You might have to tweak the dimensions on the <object> tag — I’ve had problems with alternative realities resulting between IE and Firefox on PCs. Stick it in a table– that always helps.

    Love your show. It makes my crotch itch. More Puccini, please.

    p.s. the upload problem you’re having sounds like a server-side ‘max-file-size’ value is set too low. maybe they had bandwidth problems and changed it as a quick fix?
