You can also add a multipurpose plugin like Shadowbox (google it) which will let you display pretty much anything in a lightbox style popup.

Hi, thanks for the reply, I have already tried to install the jquery quicktime plugin but it did not work … all I got was the quicktime logo with a question mark through it. No matter what I try I cant get it to work :confused:

An another thing I noticed on your site. In my opinion, I wouldn’t use the “loading” favicon on your site. People can think, your site is still loading…

That’s interesting. It’s hard to help with little information. I’d say from a troubleshooting perspective I’d try these two things:


  1. Can you view embedded quicktime videos on other sites or do you get the Quicktime logo?
  2. Can you embed a test video of another format?



    It’s possible you need to dload something from apple on your machine…

From Design → Blocks, click on ‘Home Page’. Add a new “html block” with the following code below, then position the block on the page where you want.






Copy your your .mov file(s) into the appropriate directory specified in the url above.
