I just noticed that the first movie on that page was compressed with H.264 and AAC audio, and it won't play either (the rest are Sorenson). Could it have something to do with the files having the .mov suffix?
Same is true in Firefox, none will play, but I just get the QT logo without the question mark.

I can't even get one of these movies to play locally.
I re-exported one of the movies to M4V format, changed the HTML to match the new file name, and put the movie into the same folder at the HTML file. I even copied the HTML from a page with a currently-working movie. Now it just gives me a blank window like it can't find the movie file. But there is no error shown in the Safari Activity window.
This is really strange as these movies played fine before, both from the web site and locally, and I've changed nothing.
So does that mean Safari and other browsers no longer support the "old way" of embedding QT videos?
not that I know of, but I see that the new ones reference 'movies/...' rather than '.Movies/...'
I couldn't access the movie directly before, but now I can.
http://homepage.mac.com/jabaro/.Movies/NASALiquor.mov doesn't & didn't work, and was being referenced in the html
http://homepage.mac.com/jabaro/.movies/NASALiquor.mov does work
go figure - glad you have it sorted now.
