  • It may be because the space set aside for the controls is 1 pixel off. When you embed a QuickTime movie and want to display the control bar, always add a value of "16" when specifying the movie height. If your actual clip is 320x240, then you would tell the embed tags that your clip is 320x256. So, 240+16=256 would give the required space for the controls.

    The current jquery.prettyPhoto.js has this padding set to only 15 pixels:

    correctSizes['height']+=15; correctSizes['contentHeight']+=15; correctSizes['containerHeight']+=15; // Add space for the control bar

    Try changing it to 16 (the correct value according to Apple's QT docs):

    correctSizes['height']+=16; correctSizes['contentHeight']+=16; correctSizes['containerHeight']+=16; // Add space for the control bar

Howdy, Stranger!
