Embedded QuickTime in Snow Leopard Won't Play Large Movies

"Our embedded QuickTime movies are not playing in Safari under Snow Leopard.
They play fine using Firefox on the same Mac, and play fine on PC's."

"Well I've found a temporary work-around by looking at the Apple trailer site. It appears that they use a poster video before they launch the big video.

I added a simple poster video that says ""loading video..."" and set it's autohref to true. That way you dont actually have to click the poster video, it will go to the real video automatically. Here's my code so far:

<script language=""JavaScript"" type=""text/javascript"">
QT_WriteOBJECT('http://www.thelifechurch.com/media/play.mov', '640', '376', '',
'href','http://www.thelifechurchtv.com/media/072708tv.mov',
'target','myself',
'autohref','true',
'autoplay','true',
'scale','tofit',
'controller','true',
'bgcolor','black');
</script>"
