Encode mov file to facilitate streaming

Post by TrierMusic »

Hi all,

I'm making an online lesson and it needs to be encoded in Quicktime so that it will play automatically on the webpage, not load and then play.

Under file -> save as movie, I've checked the box for "prepare for internet streaming."

At first I tried Fast Start, but that seemed to load everything first.

What's the option I use to make it play automatically and load the rest of the movie as it plays?

Make sure you have the latest version of QuickTime installed. I haven't tried saving streaming video recently, but the streaming settings were not working in older versions of the QuickTime encoder for Windows. If you plan to upload the video to YouTube, it gets converted to a different format anyway.
