I've been testing/using mplayer for the past several days and have it setup 
as a helper application in Mozilla 1.3, and it seems to play Quicktime fine, 
of the ones I've been testing.

I have noticed some garbage on one .mov file, and I'm not using the ms-dos 
codec, just the native. This is not a bad client, not bad at all. Thanks for 
pointing this out.
