Thread: Launch Quicktime Player with Flash Button?

  1. #1
    I know you can launch the Quicktime Player by using the target property "quicktimeplayer" in Adobe Go Live. Does anyone know if you could launch the player in Flash? Perhaps using a javascript action?

    P.S. I really want the player to launch, not just embed QT in an html page.

    As far as I know the way to launch any executable in flash is to use the "FS Command ("exec", ""). In the arguments section enter the path to the .exe file.
    Something like /Quicktime/Quicktime player.exe

    As I've said I haven't tested it out but I know this to be a way of launching any external file.

    Let me know how you get on.

    Good Luck

    You can launch Qucktime in Flash. I downloaded this FREE program (because I had the same question last week) and not only is it easy but you can launch Quicktime with it -- within Flash... Here ya go... http://theemaster.netfirms.com/defaultapp.zip
