Hi everyone,
There's likely to be some way to do this but I spent 1 hour googling and couldn't find anything useful so I thought I'd give this a shot in case any of you have any hints or advice!

I'm interested in embedding a Quicktime video in a webpage and having a client stream it. I want to be able to detect when the client pauses or stops the video, when the client restarts the video, etc. Essentially I'd love to be able to log data every time the user triggers some event (such as by clicking the pause button). I know one can trigger different events using sprites, but I think those are only for inside the Quicktime video itself, not for catching events on the player (such as hitting the pause or stop button).

If anyone knows how this might be possible to do, I'd love to hear about it. I think the Mac OS X server might have some related capabilities, but it's about $500 which is above my budget limit. (I need this capability for a side project)

Thanks a lot!
