Found a program called "XMLtoRefMovie - Mac OS X" on the CD in my "QT
for the Web" book (3rd Edition). It takes an XML file, and creates a
ref movie from the data. So figured I try that.
(NOTE: I had to launch Classic and use SimpleText to create the qtrm
file, as TextEdit in OSX couldn't save a file that the XML tool would
recognize or open. Even with "Plain Text" format, saving as .txt and
changing the extension to "qtrm" manually didn't work. Must be
something in the Format or Creator code?)
saved it as "QTRM_CPU1.qtrm" in the SAME folder as the alternate movies
it refers to. Launched XMLtoRefMovie, and opened the qtrm file. A few
seconds later, a "QTRM_CPU1.mov" file appeared in the folder. Click on
it - same thing as before - the last file listed is the one QT opens,
no matter what your CPU's power.
BUT, it worked on all computers when I dragged it up to my server. So
it's working with relative paths, finding the local alternate files on
the server. So that much is better. But it still doesn't return proper
So, where does the problem really lie? Am sure it's not me! But if 2
tools aren't doing the job (albeit one seems closer than the other),
have to suspect something else on my machine, but what?
