I opened a new HTML document, dragged a .mov file into it and this is
what I got:

146:147: syntax error: Expected “,” but found number. (-2741)
<object  classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"
    <param name="src" value="betterresults_848x496.mov">
    <param name="controller" value="true">
    <param name="autoplay" value="true">
    <embed src="betterresults_848x496.mov"
        controller="true" autoplay="true"
        scale="tofit" cache="true"

So, there are the object/embed tags, but an error message as well...
TextMate 1.5.10 (1623), Mac OS X 10.6.6, no QT pro.

Kind regards,
