QUICKTIME, running from CD-ROM on W2K

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Alexander Grahn, Jul 11, 2003.

  1. Hello!

    I use acroread for my presentations, which I burn on CD-ROM together
    with acroread. But somtimes they contain animations as Quicktime
    movies. Therefore, I wonder if it is possible to run Quicktime and its
    plugin from CD-ROM too, in case it is not installed on the target
    Windows box and I don't have the sufficient administrative rights to
    install it.

    Any suggestions?

    Yes. Use MPEG-1 instead of MOV. Anyone running Windows
    can view your clips via WMP. *Much* easier.

    Unfortunately, QT, WMP and most other media players need to be run from
    the hard drive, not from the CD-ROM. WinAmp can be run from CD-ROM, but
    recent versions nag for registration, which is a hassle.

    I believe there are MPG players which can run from the disc - have your
    checked out IRFANVIEW (sp?) - but I know of none for MOV or QT files.
