I website I'm almost done developing includes quicktime embeds of short news clips. I've embedded them in the page, and so far every browser but IE displays them properly. I've read that IE needs a different method to do the work, but nothing seems to work.

Here is the special code I've used for IE:

<object CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" width="320" height="256" CODEBASE="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab">

Since I can't include links, here is the PHP code that prints the embed data.


echo '<object CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" width="320" height="256" CODEBASE="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab">

<PARAM name="SRC" VALUE="http://www.example.com/' . preg_replace('/\s/', '%20', $_GET['file']) . '">
<PARAM name="AUTOPLAY" VALUE="true">
<PARAM name="CONTROLLER" VALUE="true">
<EMBED SRC="http://www.example.com/' . preg_replace('/\s/', '%20', $_GET['file']) . '" WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="256" AUTOPLAY="true" CONTROLLER="true" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/">
</EMBED>
</OBJECT>';
