Online the player is embedded. This behavior only happens locally in Firefox 3 beta.

<embed src="" type="image/x-quicktime" width="180" height="16"></embed> is no problem.

Player Pro 7.4 is the same.

Interestingly Safari 3 beta for Windows has a similar problem embedding QuickTime locally.
do you still see this problem with newest version of firefox and quicktime?

Sorry for the delay.

I've retested with FF 3.6.10 and QT 7.6.5. The issue still exists.

Local QT media player embedding,

This code embeds the player:

<embed src="" type="image/quicktime" width="180" height="16" autoplay="true" volume="90" balance="0" loop="false" controller="true"></embed>

This code does not embed the player:

<object type="image/x-quicktime" data="" width="180" height="16">
<param name="autoplay" value="true" />
<param name="volume" value="90" />
<param name="balance" value="0" />
<param name="loop" value="false" />
<param name="controller" value="true" />

Pressing browser Back button is needed.
