View Full Version : Parameters to resize an embedded QuickTime movie (.mov)

04-02-2008, 02:26 PM
Hi all,

Please have a look to the code below.

The aa.mov movie is fatter and taller than the width and height provided but I really need it to be WIDTH="194" and HEIGHT="232".
With the code below it only shows a fragment with the given width and height but not the whole thing properly resized.
The funny thing is that with Windows Media Video the resizing via width and height parameters works perfectly.

Please note that I cannot use any software to resize, this is a dynamic script: aa.mov can be bb.mov and so on, it changes with a while loop. The movies are provided by the users and they cannot be asked to resize before submitting them.

Thanks a lot in advance!

<object WIDTH="194" HEIGHT="232"
<param name="src" value="aa.mov">
<embed src="aa.mov" WIDTH="194" HEIGHT="232"
autoplay="true" controller="false"

Did you account for the 16 pixels you need for the controls?

Try the elements vspace and hspace, because I hear that's how you control how your video is resize vertically and horizontally.

Try something like:

hspace="10" vspace="10" hidden="true" autostart="true" loop="true" type="video/quicktime" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/"

This is an example I got from http://library.creativecow.net/articles/chaffin_abraham/embedding-quicktime-movies.php which may of more use to you.
