Product Description

From Amazon

If you do anything related to creating QuickTime movies for the Web, you'll want this book. QuickTime for the Web: A Hands-On Guide for Webmasters, Site Designers, and HTML Authors is one of the most informative and easy-to-read guides of its kind, and perhaps one of the best in Apple's QuickTime Developer Series.

Loaded with real-world examples, code snippets, and digestible text, this book opens up your eyes to the real power of QuickTime, which goes much farther than merely allowing you to create and play short videos. QuickTime is a deep, all-encompassing technology that can be used for displaying all kinds of things, including programmable functions and site navigation.

Nineteen chapters cover everything from how to download and install QuickTime to special features of the QuickTime Plug-in (you can limit the download rate of a movie so that users with a fast connection don't hog all the bandwidth) to streaming vs. nonstreaming applications. Other chapters discuss using QuickTime layers (text, Flash, and so on) and programming sprites for creating interactive QuickTime movies. There's a great example of a calculator created entirely in QuickTime by using sprites.

As an added bonus, the accompanying CD-ROM contains QuickTime 4 Pro for both Macintosh and Windows (which alone is worth the cost of the book); an assortment of tools for creating, editing, and converting audio and video; and most of the examples in the book. Leave it to Apple to come out with a technical manual that reads easily and is packed with more fun things to do than a boardwalk arcade. --Mike Caputo

From Library Journal

This comprehensive resource covers every aspect of working with QuickTime, from creating and posting simple movies to making virtual reality panoramas and interactive 3-D object movies. The accompanying CD includes several multimedia trials as well as the full version of QuickTime Pro 5 (the free, downloadable Player lacks Pro's editing features); it also uses QuickTime tools to demonstrate book examples. Larger public and college libraries supporting multimedia programs should purchase even if they own the first edition because QuickTime 5's new features are discussed.

5.0 out of 5 stars QuickTime for the Web review May 11 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
QuickTime for the Web is a hands-on, how-to guide for working with QuickTime (Apple's software architecture for multimedia content creation and delivery) and the web. It shows how to embed QuickTime movies on web pages and configure the playback of those movies to achieve any of a number of special effects. If you are working with web pages and want to make use of sounds, video, text, still images, or any other other kinds of media that QuickTime supports, you should buy and read this book.
The book is chock full of information, but it's anything but a dry presentation. The author is witty, precise, and instructive. He approaches the subject in a way that presumes very little prior acquaintance with either QuickTime or HTML. Little by little, he teaches us how to do some amazing things.
If you are a web page designer, a webmaster, or an HTML author, this book belongs close at hand in your office!

5.0 out of 5 stars An holistic resource July 11 2000
By Rayhawk Corporation - Published on Amazon.com
This is an important resource for anyone who is serious about maximizing the potential of Quicktime. At Rayhawk.com we have been using this book to enhance our web productions and the results have been noticable, not only to us, but to our clients (KFC, Taco Bell, BMW, Porsche).
The book is full of useful info and the author is fun and helpful. He assumes we have little prior knowledge with either QuickTime or HTML and by the end of the book, he teaches us how to produce some amazing content.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Find in the World of Computer Books! Jan. 8 2001
By Michael P. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book is a must have if you plan on working with QuickTime to make multimedia content available! I call this book 'a rare find', as it is great for beginner through master, leaving few questions unanswered or stones unturned. The text is a good mix of "how to" information combined with "tips and tricks" to get your implementations to work.
I purchased this book for its material regarding steaming content over the Internet, and learned a great deal in the process. The chapter on QuickTime VR answered my "how do they do that?" questions, and has led me to explore the use of this technique for my upcoming projects.
The QuickTime VR chapter is a good example of the depth of knowledge used to develop this text, as it gives in-depth information on photography techniques that only a mid- to experienced photographer would know.
My only criticism of the book is that it only begins to explore about half of the knowledge needed to set up your own streaming web server, but I can hardly fault the authors for that -- it says right on the cover "A Hands-On Guide for Webmasters, Site Designers, and HTML Authors." It says nothing about being aimed at System or Network Administrators. If your main interest in this book is the setup of streaming servers, you might want to consider another book (or better yet, purchase this book along with another to round out your knowledge).
With the ... QuickTime Pro included, I can say without reservation that this is one of the best computer book values I have ever purchased. The book paid for the rest of the cost by showing me how to trick Microsoft Internet Explorer / Windows Media Player in such a way that it will not try to open your .mov files (great in a Windows-dominated environment)!
Highly recommended, even if you have only a passing interest in QuickTime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you believe in sprites? You will! June 23 2000
By Caroling Wholeo - Published on Amazon.com
I've used QuickTime for over two years now, especially for QTVR movies. I belong to several email lists, have bought several tools (hardware, books, and software), and prowl Apple's QT web site. But until this book, I had many questions. Now I have many answers. Actually more than I can handle. At over 700 pages of truly "hands-on" information that is very friendly to read, I now can do many more things with QuickTime. Also, I can plan more than I can do, since I now understand how. The book has just the necessary illustrations and screen shots, not too many. For a long time, I'd heard of sprites, which sounded like elves, but were graphics. This book explains them and why QuickTime is a good place for them. It also has a glossary and index, so you can find things easily. ..............

5.0 out of 5 stars QuickTime for the Web July 17 2000
By Luke Wonderly - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a must have! From how to create VR with interactive sounds and sprites - to getting your video or photos streaming on the web - this book shows you how. As a web master of a site with over 100 different Virtual Reality and QT movies, I found this book (and the free tools and interactive sprites for my use) to be invaluable. I reccommend it without hestitation. Luke Wonderly, Web master - vrbakersfield.com
