I have a problem with quicktime files, *.mov..It won`t play while loading, it only plays when a whole movie is loaded, does anyone have an idea why?

Do you mean playing inside your webpage when viewed online ?

or just viewing from your local?

Much better to stream music/movies through web page. Search tut's relating to that

On the web quicktimes does stream but requires the viewer to press place.
Just add a parameter to the file that holds the direction to the mov file with auto start.

<EMBED name ="EmbedQuickTimePlayer"
pluginspage ="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/"
width ="800"
height ="616"
src ="blah.mov"
<span style='color:#3333FF'>autoplay ="true"</span>
loop ="false"
controller ="true"
enablejavascript ="true">
</EMBED>

view your code and look for..

<EMBED name ="EmbedQuickTimePlayer"
pluginspage ="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/"
width ="800"
height ="616"
src ="blah.mov"
loop ="false"
controller ="true"
enablejavascript ="true">
</EMBED>

just add the additional line...

autoplay ="true"

under any of the other attributes
example..

width ="800"
height ="616"
src ="blah.mov"
<span style='color:blue'>autoplay ="true" <<<<<</span>

Also, if your using DW, within Dreamweaver, if you click on your quicktime ActiveX placeholder (if you will) down at the properties area. Click on the Parameters button and it will bring up a box that has alot of that information. It a bit of a short cut, but like the guys above I perfer to work with the raw code.
