by on Mar 18, 2010 at 10:12:12 pm

Hi.

I've been searching for this solution, but there's no luck so far.
I wonder if someone could help.

I'm trying to use jQuery plugin 'Easy Slider 1.7' to make a slide show of Quicktime movie.
Everything seems ok on Safari and Chrome (on Mac),
but on Firefox (mac), even the page itself won't be loaded.
(I'm not sure if it's ok on PC at this moment, as I don't have PC)

You can see an example here.

I don't know much about jQuery and Javascript, so I might be making a stupid mistake.
It seems like 2 JavaScripts for EasySlider and Quicktime movie are conflicting each other.
if I implement these script separately, it works fine on Firefox.

The funny thing is, if I place the script for Quicktime movie somewhere outside
  • tag,
    both scripts work fine. However, to make a movie slide, this element has to be inside
  • tag.
    Then, nothing works in this way on Firefox.

    Do I just have to give up using this method?
    Much appreciated if someone could spare their knowledge.

    Thanks

    Akila

    trying running firebug (a firefox extension) and see what error message you get in your console.

    Hi Jameson.

    Sorry I couldn't reply back anytime soon.

    Thank you for your advice.

    did tried running firebug.
    Then, in console there are two error messages come up.

    1.
    element is null
    [Break on this error] element.id = '';
    qtp_library.js (line 170)

    2.
    this.parentNode is null
    [Break on this error] return new jQuery(context).find(select...clean([container.innerHTML])[0];}else
    jquery.js (line 18)

    I have no clue what they mean or if they are causing problem.

    It would be very very appreciated if you could give me some tips about what to do about these.

    Thanks.

    akila

    no one would know what the errors indicated without digging through the code. at least now we have some clarification that the scripts are conflicting with each other. definitely check to ensure that you dont get those errors when the scripts are kept separate.

    so... the scripts were not written to be used together. you can either re-write the scripts, find a new script that does the same thing, or embed the inner script in an iframe, like this (each line below indicating a page segment inside the page segment listed above it:

    HTML
    BODY
    DIV = for slideshow
    SCRIPT = for slideshow
    DIV = for movie
    iFRAME
    HTML
    BODY
    DIV
    SCRIPT for movie

    Hi Jameson.

    Thank you for your advice.
    Now it does more make sense for me why the page didn't work on firefox.

    I'll try iframe option as you suggested to see how it goes because I don't have any clue how to write a script.
    I wouldn't have come up this solution without your advice.
    Thank you very much.

    I'll let you know once it's done.

    Best.
