QT on Ipod

QT on Ipod

QT on Ipod

I'm building a Ipod/Iphone webapp and all is well but the QT embed is not working as expected...

I'm using
<embed src="mycover.jpg" href="./videos/myvideo.mp4" AutoStart="true" type="video/x-m4v" target="myself" scale="1">

and this works but the cover image has to be in the root like this if I put the mycover.jpg into a subdirectory on the server like /images/ then it doesn't work.

Anyone have some insight into why this would be?

RE: QT on Ipod

In case anyone is interested they have to be in the same directory and then you only use the full path on the href link.

<embed src="mycover.jpg" href="./videos/myvideo.mp4" AutoStart="true" type="video/x-m4v" target="myself" scale="1">

where mycover.jpg and myvideo are in the same directory and it works fine.
