Also see sound probs with other videos from same streaming site. Works correctly
in IE and Safari.

2. Play first movie, until person starts talking
3. Observe visual defects in embedded QT window

We use this site on a LAN, but you should be able to use the movie from a remote
high bandwidth site; we have users who do.

Hmm.. I'm having no luck getting the qt stream to load so I can actually see the
problem described. The QT plugin shows the QT animation but never displays the
video content. Any chance we could get another url to test ?

Ok, the QT stream appears to be working now. I can see a noticeable amount of
noise and artifacts appearing in the video. I don't see this same issue in the
Mozilla CFM trunk (2003-01-03-08) NB, Safari beta, or IE 5.2.2. I have QT 6.1
installed under 10.2.3.
Ever confirmed: true

Definately worse in camino than safari.

Summary: Display in embedded quicktime window at above URL is garbled. → Streaming quicktime movie is garbled.

The garbling seems to happen when two or more instances of QT are open anywhere in Camino, where one is streaming.

Simon, this seems like a perfect bug for you. ;)

We've duplicated this bug on a Mac with QT 7.4.5 and QT 7.5.  Confirmed that it used to work with Firefox 2 (on the same machine).  We have NOT duplicated it on any Windows box (where it seems to work).

Another test URL is:
(see first row's video)

It seems to fix itself at the keyframes, so the streaming diffs between them have offset problems or something. (that's a wild observation unconnected to any knowledge of how the code or plugin works in depth)

I realize I've co-opted an old bug.  It is the same issue :-)

It's visible on Firefox 3.1a2 (nightly trunk)
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.1a2pre) Gecko/2008072402 Minefield/3.1a2pre

and Firefox 3.001
Moving this to Core:Plug-ins based on comment 6 and 7; any time you have two QT instances on a single page, all of them will display garbled video from the get-go.
Component: Plug-ins → Plug-ins
Product: Camino → Core

I'm marking this bug as WONTFIX per bug #1269807.
