  • Forcing an mpg movie to play in quicktime

    I would like to force an mpeg-1 movie to play in Quicktime. If I tell it to open the movie, it will open in Windows Media Player and not in Quicktime. I tried to search but my query was too long. [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    Any suggestions.

    Hi,

    What you should do is execute QuickTime using an Execute Program action, and then pass the pull path to your MPEG file as a command line parameter.

      Hi,

      I am new at this, and I am very interested in forcing a mpg movie to play in quick time.

      Can You explain it in more details please ?

      I would appreciate if anybody will email me an example of AMS file where mpg is forced to play in quick time. Here is my email:

      Thanks.

        It would probably go something like this:

        File Name: %SrcDrv%\Program Files\QuickTime\QuickTimePlayer.exe
        Arguments: %SrcDrv%\movie.mpg
        Working Dir:

        You can also do a Search for File (to search for QuickTimePlayer.exe) before the Execute Program function and store the results in a variable (%QTPlayer%). Then put the variable in the File Name field for the Execute Program function.

        Of course, you can customize the Quicktime path and/or the path to your mpg file as needed, wherever these are located.

          Hi,

          Simply create an EXECUTE PROGRAM action that will launch Quick Time. Then place the FULL PATH to your MPEG movie in the Arguments field.

          For example:

          File Name: C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QuickTimePlayer.exe
          Arguments: %SrcDrv%\MyMovies\MyMpeg.MPG

          You will just have to make sure that you have a reliable path to launch Quick Time.
