Insert Qucktime command doesn't work


FileMaker Pro


FileMaker Pro 11 Advanced

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

When I attempt to "Insert Quicktime" file into a container field, it doesn't allow me to insert a PDF file, and if I try to insert a video file, it plays no video, and only a very broken up version of the audio.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Insert QuickTime...
Change "Files of type" to "All Files (*.*)" (because I automatically get to choose from only "Movie Files (*.avi;*.mov;*.qt)"
Select a PDF file

Expected result

Should insert a link to the file location on my computer

Actual result

Beeps and displays error message instead

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

The QuickTime movie file could not be inserted.  Make sure the movie has been saved as self-contained and playable on non-Apple platforms. (709)

Configuration information

I have the most updated versions of both FileMaker Pro 11 Advanced and QuickTime.


The only thing I can do is insert the entire actual file into the database, which I don't want to do.
