Quicktime in IE

1299
I only want to use Shadowbox for images and HTML but certainly no Quicktime. But whatever compilation I use when I include the JS it start nagging about quicktime being no installed on IE.

Most people don't have bloatware quicktime installed and I don't want them see any message regarding quicktime when it's not even used.

Any idea how to disable this?

... are you using the Shadowbox version 2.0 ?
If so, maybe you could prevent shadowbox from loading the quicktime player script with the

"Shadowbox.loadPlayer" function

######

Shadowbox.loadPlayer(['flv', 'html', 'iframe', 'img', 'qt', 'swf', 'wmp'], 'src/player');

#######


just list, what functions/player you need.

I havent tested it yet, but maybe it works that way.


Example of my header

#######


<script type="text/javascript" src="src/adapter/shadowbox-base.js"></script><script type="text/javascript" src="src/shadowbox.js"></script><script type="text/javascript"> Shadowbox.loadSkin('media', 'src/skin'); Shadowbox.loadLanguage('en', 'src/lang'); Shadowbox.loadPlayer(['flv', 'html', 'iframe', 'img', 'qt', 'swf', 'wmp'], 'src/player'); window.onload = function(){ var options = { displayNav: true, handleUnsupported: 'link', autoplayMovies: true }; Shadowbox.init(options); }; </script>

That doesn't help, the IE information bar is displayed as soon as the shadowbox javascript file is included.

hmmm,...

maybe try in the "shadowbox.js" file:

goto line 326 and comment out 326 to 329

This should not happen. What is the code that you're using at the top of your page?

Same issue here (sorry, for warming up that thread).

Using the shadowbox wordpress plugin (so its shadowbox 2.0). IE 7 complains about Quicktime. Here the init code:

        var shadowbox_conf = {
                animate: true,
                animateFade: true,
                animSequence: "sync",
                modal: false,
                overlayColor: "#000",
                overlayOpacity: 0.8,
                flashBgColor: "#000000",
                autoplayMovies: true,
                showMovieControls: true,
                slideshowDelay: 0,
                resizeDuration: 0.35,
                fadeDuration: 0.15,
                displayNav: true,
                continuous: false,
                displayCounter: true,
                counterType: "default",
                counterLimit: 10,
                viewportPadding: 20,
                handleOversize: "resize",
                handleUnsupported: "link",
                initialHeight: 160,
                initialWidth: 320,
                enableKeys: true,
                flvPlayer: "http://mydomain.com/wp-content/plugins/shadowbox-js/flvplayer.swf"
        };
        window.onload = (function(){
                Shadowbox.init(shadowbox_conf);
        });

Any help? Thx.

Hi guys,

I'm having the same issue with 3.0b - I have no need for Quicktime but IE7 displays the info bar "This website wants to run...Quicktime..." etc.

From the head:

                <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/scripts/shadowbox/shadowbox.css">
               
       
                <script src="/scripts/jquery-1.3.2.min.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>                <script type="text/javascript" src="/scripts/shadowbox/shadowbox.js"></script>                                <script type="text/javascript"> Shadowbox.init({ language: 'en', players: ['html','flv','iframe'] }); </script>
    </head>


Any advice appreciated, thanks.

Hmm... this is probably due to the Shadowbox code trying to instantiate a QuickTime ActiveXObject (it does this when it tries to detect which plugins are installed). However, I haven't personally experienced this issue. Is there some security policy enabled on your browser? Some anti-virus software that you're running perhaps? That could be what is triggering the error. I'm running IE 7.0.5730.13 on a vanilla install of Windows XP Pro.

The problem here is that Quicktime trys to install "qttask.exe -atboottime".

Certainly, we can prevent this from happening in OUR computers, but what about our users?

By the way, I believe this will only occur IF you have Quicktime installed and IF you have their startup task turned off (it's trying to reinstall it)
