QuickTime 7.1.5 version and above doesn't loacte Local File system path

By ajoystephenson ·
I can embed a QuickTime control in a web page using the OBJECT tag. Eg

<body style='overflow:hidden;border:0px;margin:0px;padding:0px;'>
<object id='player' width=178 height=152 classid='CLSID:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B'>
<param name='SRC' value='C:\Batch\SAMPLE.MOV'>
<param name='scale' value='tofit'>
<param name='autoplay' value='false'>
<param name='controller' value='true'>

This works file with version before 7.1.5.

But with the latest versions this is not working.

For the SRC param, if you give a local path it is not working. If you give a relative path it works.


<param name='SRC' value='SAMPLE.MOV'>
<param name='SRC' value='../SAMPLE.MOV'>
<param name='SRC' value='../media/SAMPLE.MOV'>

All the above things work but not

<param name='SRC' value='C:\SAMPLE.MOV'>

Any idea on this behavior?
