When I export to pdf quicktime, when i open the pdf there are no QT transport controls.
I like the QT option because of the ability to easily navigate/rewind the video.
WMV does not offer that capability?
Yes however I prefer QT due to the fact that a client can scrub the video using the playhead, wmv lacks this imo very important feature. thank you for the response.
Wow. This is an old thread that never did get answered. Oh well...
Shane, I might have an answer to your question, though. Are you, by any chance, using Vista 64-bit? If so, this is a common and acknowledged issue with QuickTime on 64-bit versions of Windows. The transport controls simply won't show up, and there is no workaround to the issue. It's up to Apple to fix the QuickTime plug-in, or release a 64-bit version of it. A Google search will reveal many complints about this issue.
However, your QuickTime-embedded Clip Notes files should show the controls on 32-bit Windows and Mac--give that a test. The person you're sending the file to may be in luck.
Thank you for the info friend I appreciate it.
If you are running 64 bit vista the work around is to run the application in xp compadibility mode - the transport controls will then show up. - PITA
I'm using Vista 64.
I was having the same problem with the transport controls not showing up.
I set AcroRd32.exe to run in XP mode and that fixed the problem with the embedded movie file.
Transport controls show up.
I hoped that would also fix the QT streaming problem.
However, if I select "Streaming" and upload it to my server then when the Clip Notes tries to play the file it says "
This happened also before I set AcroRd32 to XP mode.
No problem with "Clip Notes Windows Media" format. It uploads and plays fine.
The .mov file is on the server. I can play it fine in a browser.
Any ideas why Adobe Reader won't play a streaming .mov file in Clip Notes, but will play a streaming .wmv file?
You really need to use QT so you can scrub the timeline.
.wmv files don't let you scrub!
Adobe why haven't you after all these years made Clip Notes use flash?
If you did it would truly be cross-platform.
Wow... it's broken again. As of the late 9.1.x releases of Reader, the streaming QT option was working fine (at least, on my setup it was). Now, with Reader 9.2, the functionality is busted again. I don't think that this has anhything to do with Premiere or AME, but is instead a problem with Reader and its frequent updates to address "security issues". What version are you using?
Lovely the way new release are often a step backward in functionality.
Don't they test these things?
The just-released 9.3.0 Reader update seems to--for the moment--repaired the streaming QuickTime functionality of ClipNotes. In a month or so, it will broken again... says The Amazing Kreskin.

I downloaded the new Reader 9.3.0, and although I no longer get the error message, it still doesn't play in the .pdf. Reader opens it, but the video window is black, with no transport controls, and it doesn't play.
Also, I tried the embedded version, and I get the same black video window. It doesn't play. This worked before.
I hope this isn't what you mean when you say "Fixed!"
I went back and navigated to the installation folder and selected run as administrator. That fixed the embedded version. But the streaming version still doesn't do anything.
Adobe....what is wrong with you guys?
