There are three options for linking to your QuickTime. Please select one of the options below to get started.
Option 1: Use PlayStream's Easy Link Technology (Recommended)
Option 2: The QTL File Method
Option 3: Embedding with QuickTime
Option 2: The QTLFile Method

Once you have uploaded your QuickTime file to your PlayStream account, create a text file (Windows users can do this with Notepad or TextPad; MAC users with Simple Text) with the following text entered (in upper, left corner):

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?quicktime type="application/x-quicktime-media-link"?>
<embed src="rtsp://"
autoplay="true" />

Save this text file by any name (no spaces) with the extension ".qtl after it (i.e: movie.qtl). Upload this "QTL" file to your Web site. Create a link on your Web page to this file. For example:

If your have a low and high bandwidth movie and would like a single link that will check the client's QuickTime settings, then give them the correct stream, you would use Apple’s MakeRefMovie application. This can be found at:

With this tool you can specify which movie the client receives. This will create a reference movie which you can place in your progressive directory. The text of your QTL file would then look like:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?quicktime type="application/x-quicktime-media-link"?>
<embed src=""
autoplay="true" />

Option 3: Embedding With QuickTime
PlayStream EasyLink technology makes it easy to embed QuickTime Media into a Web page. Just insert the following OBJECT/EMBED tag in your Web page:

<OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240" CODEBASE="">
<PARAM name="src" VALUE="">
<PARAM name="autoplay" VALUE="true">
<PARAM name="controller" VALUE="false">

NOTE: Please replace the highlighted text above with your stream link.

The "type" attribute lets the browser know which plug-in to use to play the media. The "src" attribute tells the plug-in what media to play and where it resides. The "src" attribute can either be the PlayStream Easylink path to your media or a reference movie. The "height" and "width" attributes are the dimensions of your media. If the media is audio
only be sure to set both the "height" and "width" to at least "2" or it may not work in all
browsers. The "autoplay" attribute determines whether the clip starts playing automatically or not. The "controller" attribute determines if the controller is available to the user. Be sure to add "15" pixels to the "height" attribute if the "controller" attribute is set to "true." This will prevent distortion of your media by providing enough space for the "controller".

The reason for the use of both the OBJECT and EMBED tag is to insure functionality in all browsers.
