i be cross platform buggin

Hi all,

Thanks in advance for checking this out.  I'm using the following code and it's working fine with PC's but not Macs.

Do you know of anywhere to cut and paste an if/then statement so that it says, if pc, use this <embed> and if mac, use another one?  Do I even need to do that or is there something in that <embed src=> that can make it love both PC's and MACs?  Thanks,

<PARAM name="SRC" VALUE="sample.mov">
<PARAM name="qtsrc" VALUE="<%=movie%>">
<PARAM name="AUTOPLAY" VALUE="true">
<embed src="dummy.mov" width="320" height="240" qtsrc="<%=movie%>" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/" />

Hmm yes, so it would seem.

But certain browsers (Netscape on MAC for example) keep coming back with the message 'hey I can't find this "dummy.mov"'.  But the dummy.mov is actually a reference file, while the real file is dynamically loaded via that qtsrc code.

So maybe it would make sense to remove the reference src='dummy.mov' and just leave the qtsrc=<%=movie%>?  I have half a mind to try that--unless you think it'd be foolish to do so.
