How to make a single .mov file autorun from a CD?

I need to make a cd containing only 1 .mov file and have it autorun the file when inserted.  Is this possilbe?  It seems like it would be pretty simple.

RE: How to make a single .mov file autorun from a CD?

Please let me know if you got this to work.  I am in the same need as you are and can't seem to figure out how. Everyone keep saying it is enough to create an inf file with the following in


Obviously this only opens the quicktime but does not start the movie.  

if you replace the quicktime.exe with your movie, it doesn't start either.

Again if you found a solution please let me know.

Thanks much.

Almost had it, just put yourmovie.mov after it

remember goes in your autorun.inf file

Edit autorun.inf so it looks like this:

open=quicktime.exe yourmovie.mov

then burn your autorun.inf and quicktime file to the cd.
