Hi - I'm looking for a little help on how to embed quicktime movies.
I checked out the page:


I did the installation and edited config.php. All fine. My question is in 
the syntax:

   (:quicktime Attach:myfile.ext arg1=someting arg2=something:)

The page says "use the normal Attach: syntax". But the Attach: sytax seems 
to be closely tied to enabling uploads, which I'm not interested in.

I just want to have a local directory with videos in my pmwiki tree from 
which I can embed videos. So if my tree were:


I was hoping to	embed a	video with something like:

   (:quicktime Path:/mywebsite/myvids/movie.mov :)

It seems I need	to instead use:

   (:quicktime Attach:movie.mov :)

but where does "Attach:" look for things on the	local file system?

Thanks in advance for your help.
