    As far as I'm concerned, quicktime can just go to hell in a handbasket....BUT, every once in a blue moon - I need it. The problem is that it automatically assumes control of MOV files, although the files are still associated with WMP. I've gone back and made sure time and time again that WMP is the default player for ALL movie files...but damnit all - MOV files always open in QT. It wouldn't necessarily be that bad, but for some reason, they always play IN the browser instead of a separate window and they always want to buffer to 100% before playing.

    Is there any way around this - or am I just SOL?

    does it only do that online or does it do it with mov files on your system as well?

    You need to dissasociate quicktime from MOV in your web browser, and in the file browser/QT interface.

    if you hit the "play" button in the browser control, it plays regardless of the amount buffered.

    I use real player alternative, and quicktime alternative.
    That along with the Klite codec pack, and I have complete control over how the video displays.

    aparantly EVERYONE except you is a trendy newb... :rolleyes:

    Because if you have a standard rear-projection screen next to an HDTV rear-projection screen playing an HD source, I guarantee EVERYONE will know the HDTV looks better.

    I find it fascinating that he thinks its impossibel to CHANGE the specs, and manufacture an actual HD projection screen.

    What is the very last part in the chain of parts that make up a rear projection screen television?
    You think that might be the front screen?
    And if you had a front screen that was not capable of handling
    over 480 lines, do you think it could handle hd tv?

    Silly kids.

    And has it occurred to you that maybe, just maybe... there are both 480, and HD front screens? You've cited nothing. Stupid old bastard.

    I'll try to remove the association in the browser as well. I'm using Firefox as my primary browser.
