Returning to specfic point in QT movie

Returning to specfic point in QT movie

Returning to specfic point in QT movie

While a QT movie plays in my presentation the user can click on links to other pages. I currently have a back button on these pages which returns to the frame containing the Quicktime movie, but the movie restarts.

Is it possible to get the back button to return to the specific point in the movie that the user left?

I guess I would need to set some kind of variable to note the time of the QT when the page changes, then some code to jump back to that point in the QT..??

Does this make any sense? Is this possible? Any ideas/help or thoughts on workarounds much appreciated.

RE: Returning to specfic point in QT movie

You can determine the QT's current playback position using movieTime. Assign the value of movieTime to a global variable when you leave the frame, and when you are back set the QT's movieTime to the value of the global variable.
