Hi. I have an embedded quicktime video on my web page (created in GoLive CS1). Ever since updating to Safari 5 the video image is chopped to half it's actual size (only part of each frame is visible). Firefox no problem. url is
P.S. The page actually loaded once correctly in Safari 5 just now, but several attempts later all failed.
first I love your music! I watched it on iPad.
I have no problems on my MacBookPro with OSX 10.6 (not updated)
But on the actual system OSX 10.6.4 and Safari 5 it don´t work with
Quicktime! Can Apple hear us? And solve this problem? I hope so!!!
Maybe it can load the pages once, if you have it in your Cache, but
like you said several attempts later all failed. I can´t understand the behavior from apple,
waiting and waiting and not reacting........But never the less, I like your musik, little bit
like Average White Band, i love it! Greatings from Germany/Hamburg/Kisdorf
Link - I can't get embeds to work, but I also can no longer get Safari 5 to play the MP3 files when I go directly to the file URL. That is, I paste the URL to the file (ending in MP3) directly in the bar. The player loads, but it doesn't play.
I'm seeing the same thing here, for some mp3s on amazon cloudfront. Safari 5.0.1 on 10.6.4.
This mp3 won't play (quicktime player loads as described above, then nothing happens):
This one works:

confimed - i see that the non-playing one has no title & artist data, which has been noted before with 'problem' mp3's.
Seems the ok one was an itunes save ? & the other used lame 3.98.
I'm sure it's the ID3 info or data layout within the mp3 container causing this, albeit that QT/Safari should not be so picky about it.
I think you're right; looking at the raw file data it seems more likely the way/order that it's presented & would imagine that saving in another app/changing ID3 version might get the file processed correctly.
Another thread with similar .mov file problems had files which worked as a direct URL, yet not as an embed. The same file behaved normally using an iframe calling it directly - that's not the case with gbissett's mp3.
playing with gbisset's mp3 - I seem to be able to get it playing consistently, even after removing the QT cache, by using
<object data="http://channel1.soundfolder.com/system/tracks/279/original/LOOP003.mp3" />
Someone else like to check that? - the file was previously a non-player whether embedded, iframed, audiod, videod or accessed directly.
At the risk of producing flagellating tongues of rapid oxidation, I must say that I am very disappointed that a representative of Apple has not commented on either of the two major threads at Apple Support relating to this very serious issue. Does Apple really want to have their QuickTime-Safari combo perceived as broken?
Even after a fresh install of Windows Server 2003 on a new box, with configuration of my sites in IIS from scratch, I am still getting the upside down Q-mark at http://www.hungryforheaven.com . Movement 3 does play, however. Looks like I will have to check my MP3 ID tags. Please note (as I wrote earlier) that the simple process of recreating an MP3 from a WORKING MP3 at the same 192 kbps setting (w/o changing ANY tags) renders that MP3 inaccessible in Safari (as long as I had not first listened to it in Firefox). Has anyone looked into my suggestion that Firefox is "hijacking" the MP3 player preference and in the process messing up Safari's MIME type association? Please check back and read what I wrote about that. Let's get this resolved! I am truly embarrassed for my beloved Apple.
