    Can someone tell me how to get the video to play automatically once the page loads? I am using camtasia 6 and I like to use Quicktime.

    I don't want any visitors to have to click the default camtasia play button.

    Thanks

    have not used quicktime in a while...it should be autostart=true, but I have to look up where it 'sits' in the code.
    get back to you (if someone else does not beat me to it!)
    R-

    ps-
    it is -> <param name="autoplay" value="true" />
