QuickTime 7 .qtl problem (but 6.5.2 works fine) - why?

QuickTime 7 .qtl problem (but 6.5.2 works fine) - why?

(OP)
Hi. Does anyone know why QuickTime 7 chokes on the following code where 6.5.2 plays the 3 linked movies (even streaming them from a CD) just fine?

There are three qtl files - here is the code for all three files - it kicks off with PART1.qtl:

PART1.qtl

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?quicktime type="application/x-quicktime-media-link"?>
<embed
    src="PART1.mov"
    autoplay="true"
    fullscreen="full"
    qtnext="<PART2.qtl>T<myself>"
/>

PART2.qtl

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?quicktime type="application/x-quicktime-media-link"?>
<embed
    src="PART2.mov"
    autoplay="true"
    fullscreen="full"
    qtnext="<PART3.qtl>T<myself>"
/>

PART3.qtl

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?quicktime type="application/x-quicktime-media-link"?>
<embed
    src="PART3.mov"
    autoplay="true"
    fullscreen="full"
    quitwhendone="true"
/>

It really has me stumped but it's a great way to stream huge files in sequence from a CD without having to load them into memory before they play. That is, it WAS a great way until QuickTime 7 came along. Any ideas why?

Thanks,

Terry
