The *.qtl MIME type is not generally in the default configuration for web servers so you'll need to take care of that with your server admin
Try setting qtsrc to force quicktime browser plugin as explained in the link

Thanks for not giving up on this!
Unfortunately without a clear picture of where the qtsrc goes in the code, I'm sort of lost. I stuck it in as follows, but that didn't do any good:
I don't know, probably a server issue. Read the links in that thread
If the .qtl technique does not work on your web server (you'll know if you see raw data in the browser rather than seeing the movie come up in QuickTime Player), you may need to ask your ISP or sysadmin to add the following MIME type to the server's configuration:
If your provider is unwilling to do this, you can probably add the handler to an .htaccess file in your web server document root:
AddType application/x-quicktimeplayer .qtl
It appears that a .htaccess file may be what the doctor ordered here. I found out what a sample .htaccess file looks like at https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Sample_.htaccess_file . However I am still trying to figure out what extension it gets (.htaccess?), and where I post it on my web site server.
So I created an .htaccess file with the instruction AddType application/x-quicktimeplayer .qtl and uploaded it to my root directory.
No cigar. If I try to load one of my .qtl files they still open up as text files in my browser rather than triggering Quicktime playback.
Not sure if this is barking up the wrong tree, but there is something different about your mov than other mov's . Did you just rename the extension? mov isn't the same thing as mp4
This is what yours shows in mediainfo, and it doesn't open properly immediately in QTPRO (it will still play when you push play, but doesn't behave properly - there is a white screen initially)
Format : MPEG-4
Format profile : Base Media / Version 2
Codec ID : mp42
This is what it's supposed to show (these work & behave properly, like apple movie trailers, and the local file opens properly in QT)
Format : MPEG-4
Format profile : QuickTime
Codec ID : qt
If you re-wrap it with ffmpeg, it should "fix" it. I tried this on your video and the profile changed, and it behaved like other quicktime prepared mov's .
ffmpeg -i input.mov -vcodec copy -acodec copy output.mov
Some encoding options are not quicktime friendly either, like bpyramid, >3 b-frames . Not sure what you used to encode it. If you want the best compatiblity for quicktime, you should use quicktime to encode
convert your videos to mp4(h264) with x264 (baseline profile, it will be playable nearly everywhere, in my opinion a lot more friendly version than quicktime where you're "forcing" users to download the huge and resource consuming quicktime+itunes, use mp4 (h264), Baldrick wrote a guide on how to do this a while ago:

Thanks very much for the tip.
Unfortunately something a bit weird happened. When I went to that link, I got a huge warning from my firewall that the site was malicious and might hurt my computer! So I closed out of it immediately. I have no idea what's going on with it. Frustrating.
Which link? Any of the links posted in the guide are safe, your anti virus/firewall is being overzealous.
I love it when a plan comes together!
