I am also interested in the answer to this question. Any help?
My only idea is to not use Quicktime. As a web surfer, I don't like it when web designers use them. Flash is by far the preferable choice.
Noted. Thanks for the response.
Don't use the QuickTime container, at least not from Premiere Pro. It seems to have the problems you're experiencing. Instead, use the "H.264" format option in the Media Encoder. You'll wind up with an H.264 file with an MP4 extension that will play back in QuickTime. I often use these for sending roughs to clients, as all you need to do is upload the .MP4 file to your web server, and email them a URL to the file. There's no need to build a player and embed it into a web page, as QT has a built-in browser module that will automatically playback in your browser window. Best of all, the file won't need to completely download before playing back--it will cache a few seconds worth of video and then start playing right away.
Another benefit of MP4 is that it can also be played back in Flash Player, so you can have a lot more flexibility with the format than QuickTime provides.
Phew - been a while since I posted that question.
Since posting I kinda worked it out myself by outputting a HDV file from premiere and using sorensen squeeze to give me QT movie that progressively downloads fine. (the apple codec giving beter quality meg for meg compared to flash I might add)
I needed a web page that showed the movie screen and initial frame on the web page plus controls with a click to play option (not just a link)
