Use the HTML "embed" command. For example, for a 1/2 size 16:9 movie called "example.mov" (using a little trial and error) I found that the following parameters will let you insert it into a webpage with just enough room for a border and the controls. In this case the actual pixel dimensions of the clip were 427x240.

<embed src=example.mov width=450 height=300>

Experiment around a bit for different effects. Using QT Pro and the "Get movie properties" command you can control the behavior some more. Enable high quality mode for the best results. If you don't want the controls to show, go to the Controller property and select "None Movie Controller". If you want the movie to start playing immediately then enable the Auto Play property.

In addition, you need to add the OBJECT tag for IE/Win:

Are you sure about that? I think this is just a flash thing, not QuickTime. Well at least it works on my Mac that way :-) As a test, does this page display properly for you? It has a 1.7MB embedded QuickTime movie:

Boyd, that page works fine in IE6 on Win2k for me. Although it doesn't play (or even show the full viewer) until it's completely loaded, and it also has a white border around the outside of the player (like the embed height and width values you gave were too big)

no autostart

For anyone that once to know, to keep the movie from autostarting i used something like this
<embed src=yourmoviename.movwide"302 height=255"
autostart="false">
