Quicktime movies


#1

Hi,

I’m trying to put a quicktime movie into a page in my rails app, but
if I use an embed statement on the page, it issues a GET command that
is routed to the controller/method that is rendering the rhtml and
sending the movie name as the id.

Do I need to do something to make the routing behave differently?
or is there something else I can do to get the embed statement to
work properly?

Here is the embed statement ( which works in an html page outside of
Rails):

<embed src="SmallFry.mov" type="video/quicktime" width="320"

height=“256” kioskmode=“false” autostart=“false” hspace=“15”
vspace=“15” align=“middle”>

And here is the error I get:

NoMethodError (You have a nil object when you didn’t expect it!

Apparently it is trying to execute my_action with “SmalFry.mov” as
the id.

Parameters: {“action”=>“my_action”, “id”=>“SmallFry.mov”,
“controller”=>“my_controller”}

Any insight is much appreciated,
Denise

You need to put the movie in /public and reference it as…

src="/SmallFry.mov"
