Hi,

See: "Using QTSRC"
http://developer.apple.com/documentation/QuickTime/IQ_InteractiveMovies/quicktimeandsmil/chapter_10_section_5.html

developer.apple.com (sic) says to add QTSRC="smil1.smil" and a dummy .mov to an <embed> to get smil to work on a web page.

I wanted to find code with an <object>. I've found a very good page that discusses how to <object> QuickTime into a Web page:
http://www.uic.edu/depts/accc/itl/realmedia/code/embed_quicktime.html

By adding <param name="qtsrc" value="project1.smil"> I can now make a *.smil work on a HTML page. See my code below.

I have three questions:

1) Does everyone else use code like I have below to get smil to work on a web page (IE, NS & Firefox)?
2) Is there a "better" method?
3) Where can I find a page specifically at developer.apple.com that discusses <object>ing smil on a web page (not just <embed>?

I need to quote something "authoritative" in an article/handout I am writing for a presentation. I'm a teacher :)
I would have thought <embed srd=... qtsrc="project1.smil"></embed> would be banned by now. It is not xml compliant.

John
