[pmwiki-users] quicktime embed issues

solved half of this quicktime issue:

the example on the quicktime page worked:
(:quicktime Attach:myfile.ext arg1=someting arg2=something:)

but when i tried to add in an external URL, this didn't:
(:quicktime Attach:http://www.externalwebsite.com/myfile.ext  
arg1=someting arg2=something:)

after looking around in the recipe code, realized that the 'Attach:'  
is not necessary, and in fact the code treats the input differently  
depending on whether it sees an 'Attach:' first 'http' -- so THIS works:

(:quicktime http://www.externalwebsite.com/myfile.ext arg1=someting  

i added a little note & example to clarify on the quicktime page...

however, my other question below, regarding pumping some default  
variables into this recipe, still stands... as do the other questions  
in the other emails.
