    OK, it seems that this is just a simple effect of them using a QuickTime movie to give a ‘swish’ on that element you load the page. To be honest, I had never noticed that effect on movies embedded in web pages before.

    The scroll-mouse interaction is part of the Quicktime/Movie playback. So far it has worked for me in Safari and OmniWeb.

    It is, though, still cool :)

    Cool indeed! And yes, a QuickTime thing :)

  4. You don’t need a scroll for that, just click on the movie and press left and right arrow keys respectively.

    [...] se avete un mouse con la rotella provate un po a girarla (naturalmente tenendo puntato il cursore del mouse sulla testata)..questo si che è il modo giusto per farsi pubblicità! via [appleblog] [...]

  6. Yep, this can be done in all Quicktime movies.

  7. Normal!! All quicktime movies respond to the scroll wheel in this way…

    LAME!!! :P

    Piko

  8. What should be happening. When I try to scroll with the wheel on Firefox at work, it well, scrolls the page.

  9. Chris: You can watch any Quicktime movie backwards and forwards.

  10. I actually find this to be highly annoying – when i try to scroll to the bottom of the page and inadvertantly end up screwing with a quicktime movie instead, i get mighty peeved very quickly. Its certainly not the intuitive experience i expect from an apple creation (the webpage , not quicktime per-se)
