Can't invoke Quick
Time Plug-In via <object>
Build ID: 2001102205 FizzillaCFM, trunk Reproducible: Always Steps to reproduce: 1) Load the examples linked from http://www.hut.fi/~hsivonen/test/object/ Expected results: Expected at least qt-in-object-with-data.html display an animation of a 3D hourglass. Would be good if the other tests worked, too. Actual results: Only the test with non-standard <embed> fallback works. The tests with <object> only don't work. Additional info: qt-in-object.html follows Apple's ActiveX sample but omits the non-standard <embed> fallback. Expected Mozilla to use the QuickTime Plug-In instead of ActiveX.
Your HTML is not correct for Mozilla. You are trying to invoke an ActiveX control by specifying a classid in your OBJECT tag that is not recognized by Gecko. In order to use the OBJECT tag to invoke 4.x-style plugins, DO NOT specify a classid attribute. Or, install an ActiveX compatibility plugin that will be able to understand that your classid belongs to the Quicktime plugin. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 46569 ***

Reporter, please also note that the correct mime type for QT movies is 'video/quicktime' not 'movie/quicktime' as specified in your test case.
Sorry. Fixing the media type fixed the case without the .cab reference.
