Linking to QTSS media from a webpage

So when you're using a QTSS server the best way to deliver your content is using RTSP... the problem is that browsers on windows do not understand the rtsp:// protocol by default so your viewers will have to take a bunch of different steps to get it to run -- which isn't good.

After searching the web for an easy solution to this problem, I found a trick that is almost too easy. Simple create a text file with a .mov extension and include a single line in that file:

RTSPtextRTSP://server/file.ext

Whenever Quicktime loads that mov file, it will realize that it is directing it somewhere else and automatically load the content from that file name.
