Adding Multimedia Elements

Just completed a major rewrite of my Adding Multimedia to Web Pages tutorial (six pages), covering a variety of techniques for compressing, linking to, and embedding QuickTime audio and video. This is part of our ever-growing Multimedia and Convergence course work and tutorial collections.

Just learned the nifty .qtl trick recently — also, just found out that QuickTime can take a palindrome parameter (wiggy!), and that you can use Apple’s JavaScript library to jump the user to an arbitrary point in a movie. Works equally well with http and rtsp (with the obvious advantage that teh user won’t have to download intermediate material via rtsp).

  1. Wow! What a great primer on adding QT to site. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a good article or how-to on this!

    Haven’t been to your site in many months. What a great surprise.
