Quicktime Auto-Play and Auto-CloseShare
If you distribute Quicktime content without embedding it in a web page you might want to apply a skin to your video. Murphy’s covered that before. The downside of the skin is that the controls don’t show up, unless you create some – which requires some commitment to the task.
