GoLive CS2 file embed problem

Apr 6, 2012 4:45 PM

I'm unable to embed a .mov file into a GoLive CS2 page.  However, .mpg3 files, including the controller, work perfectly.


I appreciate any assistance.

    What error message do you receive?


    Where are you observing the inability to embed MOV? In the browser? In GoLive?

    MOV is not an ideal video format as it requires QuickTime. QuickTime is not installed on every computer.


    A simple way to embed a movie is to use YouTube. Upload your video to YouTube and let them convert it to a web-accessible format. On the video page, YouTube will present HTML embed code. Just copy and paste that into GoLive's source view.

    I see my posts being replied to but I do not see them being read. So I have no idea how to proceed.

    ...Resizing the image on the page seems to be the problem.

    You should not resize video in GoLive. There are two reasons for this.

    1. By scaling a video down, you are pushing excess data to the visitor (wasted bandwidth, longer download time).
    2. As you have witnessed scaled video may lose controllers or may look distorted.


    You should re-encode your video prior to placing in GoLive. You can do this with YouTube or your video editing software.
