I just started designing a site in DreamWeaver, so this is all new to me. I'm having a problem inserting a Quicktime movie file. If I create a new html page, insert the movie and save the page to my desktop the movie plays fine when i test it. But, if I create a new html page, insert the movie and save the page in my root folder I get the Quicktime logo with a question mark over it. Anyone know why that is?

Thanks in advance!

the path to the movie is incorrect

are you also saving your movie to the root

Thanks for the reply!

Does that mean I shouldn't save the movie file in my root folder? I thought you had to save everything in the root folder.

It has to be inside your root folder or one of it's subdirectories, like all files in your website 8)
Doublecheck the paths you're using.

The Quicktime file is in my root folder. I'll have to try deleting it and putting it back in there or something.

No, all you really need to do is check your path.

If you would have checked your path, like every single response in this thread asked you to (why ask if not wanting to listen), you would have found out what the real problem was 8)
