    Shockwave EXE Quicktime


    Hello People,

    I can run a shockwave exe file using wine without a problem. It runs as normal. However, if the shockwave exe file plays a .MOV movie, it simply shows a blank white rectangle where the movie should be. I guess it's having trouble using the quicktime libraries. Can anybody help?

    I'm using Ubuntu.

    Thanks.

    Do you want to play the .MOV file under wine for a specific reason?

    I can't remember off hand if I've played a .MOV file, but I would expect mplayer, xine, totem, ogle, or RealPlayer might play them, which are all GNU/Linux packages.

    EDIT: Oops, I just realized you are talking about a file packaged in an .exe file. Uuuh. Windows is sooo bad. Don't know what can help for that.
