Time movies fail to display
** Thanks to firstname.lastname@example.org, who remains the original reporter (see bug 29206) and the source of most of the information in these new reports. ** -- REVISED FROM BUG 29206 - email@example.com -- The above URL points to a page that contains a single <embed>ed quicktime movie. The first time it loads, the QuickTime movie flickers and then disappears behind a grey box; it's still up and to the left, but only by 30 pixels or so. If you click on the upper half of the grey box, the movie displays (somewhat) and begins to play. If you then hit reload, the movie, which is drawn way too far up and to the left, with the top third or so of the movie cut off at precisely the same height as the top of the grey rectangle that sits happily where the actual picture is supposed to be. The left edge of the movie goes past (but is not on top of) the left edge of the window. It plays fine, though. REPRODUCIBLE: Always STEPS TO REPRODUCE: 1. Install the QuickTime browser plugin (latest version 4.1.1) by copying the one found in <Macintosh HD:Quicktime Folder> to <Macintosh HD:Mozilla Folder:Plugins> (or wherever you have your Mozilla installation). 2. Visit http://www.apple.com/trailers/fox/x-men/480_trailer.html ACTUAL RESULTS: The movie was only partially shown and drawn in the wrong place, leaving a grey box where it should have been. EXPECTED RESULTS: The movie should be shown completely and in the right place, leaving no grey boxes of any kind. Original report: Opt build 2000022414 for Mac; QuickTime Plugin (for NS 4.x or IE 4.x) version 4.1 (in Mozilla Folder:Plugins). iMac DV SE w/Mac OS 9. Latest test: Mozilla M16 2000041608, Mac OS 9.0.4; QuickTime 4.1.1, QT Plugin 4.1.1.

I'm a little hosed on this one at the moment as, in my quest for a build that would reliably launch, I updated my tree and now have a build that won't load the QT plugin at all. On the bright side I can consistently launch Mozilla for the first time in over a week. Will sync with bnesse in the AM to get back to the QT plugin issue rather than the just getting it running issue.

BTW, Can I get confirmation this is a Mac specific bug? The OS:All setting with Platform:Macintosh is confusing (not the reporter's fault, the OS: field should be driven by Platform: and list only those appropriate)
This is mac only.
OS: All → Mac System 9.0
Adding a [7/17] in Status Whiteboard...will minus on Monday.

We may be able to fix this. Seems like a general Mac plugin problem. I've had some success in getting Quicktime to work by turning off double buffering. See bug 49743
Now, the movie does not display at all. I see a blank space instead. Using build 2000092911 branch. Updating summary.
Summary: QuickTime movies fail to display correctly → QuickTime movies fail to display
Yes, I'm not seeing the Quicktime either. Hm...this is weird. It seems to work on my debug build. I'm wondering if it's #ifdef DEBUG'ed somewhere. Will check.
see bug 53976. If I rename the plugins folder to what it was before, quicktime just works fine (As good as on windows).
Is there any way to fix this for PR3 or is it too late?
cc: av, ekrock.
See related bug 54778 "Nav4 QuickTime plug-in only works in Moz/N6 on Mac if plug-ins directory is named "plugins"?!" created to focus on this new problem.

Shrir, are we still seeing this bug? Steve, what's your status on this bug? Do you think you'll be able to fix for RTM? Or are we thinking that the general double-buffering changes have already fixed this? If not, we need to find someone else who might be able to fix this; we want QuickTime to work for RTM. cc:ing bnesse for possible help or input.
