Forum Question: Webclips under SnowLeopard

I produced a Videotrailer for a customer, saved it as mp4 and delivered it to customer. He put it on his Homepage and I was able to watch it any time I started his Homepage under Leopard.
Since upgrading to Snow Leopard I don´t see my own trailer anymore on his page. I still hear it and there is an empty space, where its supposed to be. But I cant watch it anymore.
Somebody recommended to check my settings, but I don´t know which one.
So do you know, Gary, why I cant see my movie anymore. Is it a matter of settings or plug-ins ? You´ll find the trailer I mentioned on www.stimmwunder.net, if you want to take a look .

    That’s a QuickTime movie (m4v) but it is embedded in that page in a very weird way — the coding is all messed up. It is embedded half as a shockwave movie and half as a real audio sound file. I’m surprised it works for anyone. It does work for me, but I don’t know why. The webmaster of that site should fix that page so the video is properly embedded as a QuickTime movie.

      Thank you for your advice. I´ll try to get in com with their webmaster.

      So when I understood this right, it´s not a question of my 10.6 !? Even if I still could see the video under 10.5. !

        Well, I could see it under 10.6. But it looks like it was a matter of Safari looking at the code and making a few guesses as to what it was, and then trying its best to display it. It shouldn’t have worked as the HTML is horribly messed up.

          Now the webmaster (after some “had to be rights”) changed something and now I can see the trailer in my config with no problems. So I don´t know, what he has done, but it works now – at least on my machines. (have a new 27″ i7) ;-)
          Don´t know if he had corrected the mess, and if it will work on anybodies machine now.
