    Does anyone know how I can embed a QuickTime Poster Frame in a post? I've been using the following code to attempt this but it simply will not work:

    <object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"
    width="240"
    height="196"
    codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab">
    <param name="src" value="http://path/to/your/poster-frame.mov"/>
    <param name="href" value="http://path/to/you/movie.mov" />
    <param name="controller" value="false" />
    <param name="scale" value="tofit" />
    <param name="autoplay" value="false" />
    <param name="target" value="myself" />
    <embed src="http://path/to/your/poster-frame.mov"
    href="http://path/to/you/movie.mov"
    width="192"
    height="160"
    controller="true"
    scale="tofit"
    autoplay="false"
    target="myself"
    cache="true"
    type="video/quicktime"
    pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/">
    </embed>
    </object>

    Any pointers would be hugely welcome.

    Interestingly enough I'm also having problems with embedding a poster frame/QuickTime. However, my problem occurs only in FireFox and not in Safari. You can view the problem in action here: http://www.innitdigital.com/wordpress
    Select "Restricted Access" from the sidebar and use "access2005" as the password. You'll see (in FireFox) that the layout has gone all over the show.
    The code I'm using is as follows:

    <object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab" height="196" width="240">
    <param name="src" value="poster.mov">
    <param name="href" value="actual_movie.mov">
    <param name="target" value="myself">
    <param name="autoplay" value="false">
    <param name="controller" value="false">
    <embed height="196" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/" src="poster.mov" href="actual_movie.mov" target="myself" type="video/quicktime" width="240" controller="false" autoplay="false">
    </object>

    Anyone who can help with this will go straight to my x-mas list (this thing's been driving me nuts).

    Thanks in advance,

    Ole

    Having the same problem in Firefox and IE. Safari works like a charm. :( Is this a wordpress or quicktime embed code problem?

    I wish I had an answer for everyone, I don't, instead I have a similar problem with my video. My site http://www.drickhancock.com/blog/ looks just fine in Safari, but looks really messed up in Firefox and IE, especially on a PC, non Mac, computer.
    that would be appreciated.

    I've figured this one out. I'm embedding videos with poster frames at http://www.podcastnyc.net/flow by taking two actions:

    1. Not using the rich text editor. For whatever reason, rich text editors blank out the embed code.

    2. Stripping the code down so that it looks like the following:

    <embed src="path/to/posterframe" BGCOLOR="000000" BORDER="0" width="320" height="256" autostart="false" loop="false" controller="false" href="path/to/movie" target="myself" />
