howto hide QuickTime object?

P: n/a
Hello everybody,
is it possible to hide qtvr <object...> (or even change its size to 1
pixel rectangle)?
I need to hide qtvr from the page dynamically, if .mov source is empty.

For example:

<script language="javascript">
function _hide_(){ ??? }

function showfile(filename){
if(filename == "")
_hide_();
else
document.getElementById("qtvr").SetURL(filename);
}
</script>
<OBJECT
classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"

codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab"
width="180" height="160"
id="qtvr" >
<PARAM name="src" value="">
</OBJECT>
<br><a href="javascript:showfile('sample1.mov');">sample1 </a>
<br><a href="javascript:showfile('');">hide qtvr</a>

Is it possible? How should _hide_() function looks like?
Many thanks.

// Hide the movie
function hide(){
document.getElementById("qtvr").style.display = 'none';
}

// Show the movie
function show(){
document.getElementById("qtvr").style.display = '';
}

The language attribute is deprecated since the current HTML version (4.01),
the `type' attribute is required:

This will not work with any other QuickTime-capable plugin than
the QuickTime plugin on Microsoft Windows systems with enabled
ActiveX/COM support,
<br><a href="javascript:showfile('sample1.mov');">sample1 </a>


although the resource name indicates that it is not required. And
you have still not read the FAQ, hence the ongoing misuse of the
`javascript:' pseudo-protocol.

In some reason Mozilla crashed with the following code (but IE is ok):

<SCRIPT type="text/javascript">
function showmov(filename)
{
if(filename == "")
{
document.movie.style.display = 'none';
}
else
{
document.movie.style.display = '';
document.movie.SetURL(filename);
}
document.getElementById('report').innerHTML =
"["+document.movie.style.display+"] ["+document.movie.GetURL()+']';
}
</SCRIPT>

<br><a href="javascript:showmov('sample1.pano');">sample1 </a>
<br><a href="javascript:showmov('sample2.pano');">sample2 </a>
<br><a href="javascript:showmov('');">hide</a>
<hr><span id="report">status</span>
<hr>

Apparently you are unable to read and comprehend. I will no longer
waste my time with you, and I suggest that nobody else does: PLONK

Now you know how you appear to other people as you display those same
traits.

And anybody else's time?
