    expr: syntax error
    cp i686/qtdump i686/make_streamable i686/qtinfo i686/dechunk i686/yuv2mov i686/y uv4toyuv i686/recover i686/rechunk /usr/bin

    I haven't encountered openquicktime before, but it doesn't look like it has a browser plugin. I use the MPlayer-Plugin for when sites require one. It's a bit buggy in my experience but fairly usable. For playing video files on your computer you should just use one of the popular video players like Totem, VLC, or MPlayer. You may need to install a separate package with the various codecs, though I don't know what this would be called on fedora.
