You can insert it as a file, but then you won't be able to play it. Unfortunately, there's no way to insert a whole file and keep it playable.
Is this true? I'm try the trial copy of the software. I'd like a database to keep track of audio, video and image files of products and perfomances. If there is no way see anything but the file name of the videos ie no thumbnail or ability to play the clip within the data base, I may as well just just browse through the file structure on the hard drive.
You can view and play Quicktime movies in a container field. What this thread is discussing is that you can only insert the movie as a reference, you can't store an actual, physical copy of the movie file in a container. You can use the Insert File option to store a copy, but in that case it is not playable.
If the video was stored in say MySQL and I made a reference to that field would it be viewable and playable in Filemaker Pro11?
