<quickTimeFile> (QuickTime from File)

This element specifies the existence of a QuickTime file. This element is specified within the non-visual properties of an object. The QuickTime file must be attached to an object as this is how it is represented within the document. The actual playing of the QuickTime however is done within the timing node list that is specified under the <timing> element.

    <p:cNvPr id="7" name="Rectangle 6">
      <a:hlinkClick r:id="" action="ppaction://media"/>
      <a:picLocks noRot="1"/>
      <a:quickTimeFile r:link="rId1"/>

In the above example, we see that there is a single <quickTimeFile> element attached to this picture. This picture is placed within the document just as a normal picture or shape would be. The id of this picture, namely 7 in this case, will be used to refer to this <quickTimeFile >element from within the timing node list. The Linked relationship id will be used to retrieve the actual video file for playback purposes. ]
