Initially I thought all kinds of wired stuff was thoroughly messed up
in QuickTime 7, especially in QuickTime Player 7, because my main
LiveStage project was really broken. But after getting over the initial
shock and doing a lot of testing, I am starting to narrow down the
circumstances under which the bugs appear.
Once opened in QuickTime Player 7, many things initially seem broken.
(Depression sets in...)
- sometimes no response to mouse clicks in the parent and/or child
movies, when mouseovers are fine
- Movie Info window sometimes shows invalid Current size, like -7 x -5
instead of 795 x 560, combined with movie itself displayed as all black
- Movie Info window doesn't always update to show the movie's
BUT... here comes the interesting part... Try either one of these two
- bring another application to the front, then click back into
- or... minimize the movie, then open its window again by clicking in
Now the movie just works fine! All the bugs are gone! If the movie
window was initially black, it now shows its image. When mouse clicks
were first ignored, now they get a response. Content gets loaded OK.
And if you hide, then reopen the Movie Info window, its information
looks good too.
My conclusion: there must be something broken in the way QuickTime
Player 7 _initially_ opens certain movies (skinned ones?), which causes
all kinds of things to fail. However, after some kind of internal reset
of QuickTime Player 7 (which you can provoke with a minimize/reopen or
deactivate/activate), wired movies actually seem to behave completely
Can anybody repeat this behavior? How about with your own wired &
skinned movies? If this is fairly repeatable, it might be worth a bug
