If you have ever noticed that you are staring at the Quicktime logo for prolonged periods of time before your video loads, it could be related to a metadata issue.
Quicktime .mov files suffer from the same issues that plague .mp4 files, which is the location of the dreaded moov atom. The moov atom is a small portion of the metadata, which has the information needed to add the play controls to your video content. If you are hosting your content online for a progressive distribution and do not choose to place the moov atom at the front of the file, then you will get the long loading times where a the Quicktime logo will appear while the entire video is being downloaded into the browser’s cache.
There are fixes to this problem, but instead it is better to select the proper setting when exporting with Quicktime.Read More»
