    Quicktime 7 messed up Mplayer/totem/Xine

    Hey Guys,

    Has anyone else experienced problems loading newer quicktime trailers?
    I'd say it's just and issue with the way I installed the Os, but I have had Suse running on another rig running flawlessly and it to can not play these quicktime clips.
    Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this or as found a work around?

    I also noticed this. Its a fairly recent development. However many of the movies being featured by Apple Trailers site also have "High Def" trailers, and those can still be played by (for example) firefox with the mplayerplug-in.

    I downloaded some of the non-High-Def trailers (that currently can not be played by Linux) in another OS, and then tried to play the .mov files with Linux. They play flawlessly once they are on one's hard drive.

    So I view this as a streaming problem. I suspect that for some reason the Apple site refuses to stream the video if it does not get a Quick Time 7 response from the OS/browser that is browsing.
