poster movie problem

Dear Forum Members,

My first post. The following code works well (as you would expect):


<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">


It scales (squashes), say, a 400 x 300 .mov file neatly into the smaller parameters I want. But what I would like is to use the poster.mov technique and still achieve this.

The following doesn't work (and I've tried everything known to man to get it to):


<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
QT_WriteOBJECT('images/poster.gif', '268', '216', '', 'loop', 'true',


OK, the poster.mov is a gif file, but that shouldn't (and doesn't normally) make any difference.

diskclip1.qtl is as follows:


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?quicktime type="application/x-quicktime-media-link"?>


QT_WriteOBJECT doesn't seem to scale the movie down. Removing the fullscreen attribute makes no difference either.

Anyone know why or what I can do?
