HTML Link opening a page that Redirect to a Quicktime .MOV file displays garbage characters in IE when Target is _blank.
I have a .jsp page that does a redirect to a Quicktime .mov file. When I create a link to this .jsp page, if the link opens in the same window (i.e. no Target defined on the anchor tag), all is good and IE displays the Quicktime movie just fine. However if I set the Target of the link to "_blank" which opens a new window, IE displays garbage characters on the screen (as if you open a binary file). The URL in both cases (with or withotu target) is correct (i.e. http://localhost/movies/myMovie.mov). Any suggestions please...Thanks in Advance.
Then it's logical the browser tries to render it as HTML. Internet Explorer sometimes ignores the content type and uses the extension only, that could be why it was working with the "normal" link. Try using the proper content type, which is video/quicktime for Quicktime movies.
