I recommend installing MPlayer and mplayerplug-in (mozilla-mplayer package). Quicktime content works fine with them.
See here for instructions I have written about the installation: http://serios.net/content/debian/misc-tips.php#mplayer

Quick summary of the instructions:
  1. Add the APT sources mentioned here http://hpisi.nerim.net/ to your /etc/apt/sources.list, e.g.
    deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ sarge main
  2. apt-get update
  3. apt-get install mplayer-386 w32codecs (or mplayer-k6 or mplayer-586, ...)
  4. If you are using Debian stable, use apt-pinning to make packages from testing available (the mozilla-mplayer package in stable ('sarge') is plain awful)
  5. apt-get install mozilla-mplayer -t testing

---Sorry, I misread your first post. You meant streaming mov instead of normal files on disk....

BTW...did the mplayer thing work in the end?

Cheers!!
