qtl (QuickTime Link) files are text files that when clicked launch QT
Player and play the video. brief description at:

they look like this:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?quicktime type="application/x-quicktime-media-link"?>


and you cna use the above save as text file and off you go (note the
src must be a fully valid url).

you can use the embed tag in qt to pass info to the movie. so for
example the embed tag might not include or say much but you can then
write it in a way that when clicked (eg via a poster movie) you can
send additional info to the movie. This includes all of the usual stuff
that the embed tag supports (there are over 40 things you can do in the
embed tag).

This gets nifty because the informatin that is passed in this way can
be generated through the usual ways in which you might generate text
strings on computers.
