10.4: About the QuickTime Plugin and
Authored by: lazyatom on Jul 10, '05 07:50:41AM

If this is the same issue that I'm thinking about, it's actually a problem with Quicktime 7, not iFilm (or any other website). Basically QT7 stopped using the browser to download the film content, and so no cookie information can be used to authenticate site users. This basically means that if a site requires you to have a certain cookie to view a film, then because the QT7 plugin won't pass that cookie information along (even if you HAVE the cookie in your brower), you can't watch the film.

Apparently Apple are aware of it, and so you can expect a proper fix soon. In the meantime, to use a version of the QT plugin that uses the browser to download the film content, and thus works with sites using cookie-based access to content, you need to fall back to an older version.
