Originally posted by chingasman sup people, i would normally be doing some independent research first but i have to do so much at once and was wondering if you guys could take a minute and narrow something down for me......
mainly streaming internet applications for trailers and such
what can i use to play movies that come in quicktime format......etc...
is there a one stop shop *nix movie player????? for all my movie playing needs???
MPlayer is probably your best bet for a all-around *nix movie player. For Real Audio, you can get an XMMS plugin for it (don't remember where). Quicktime I'm not so sure about.
Originally posted by do_guh_new I get quicktime working like a champ in the crossover plugin www.codeweavers.com/products ya it's 15 bucks but big deal it's nice to have it plus they got a free trial version.
Thanks, do-guh-new. That's pretty reasonable and lots of websites are using Quicktime (only) now.
Mplayer has support for realaudio/media if you install the linux version of RealPlayer 8.Add the V9 codec upgrade too and mplayer will use them.It also has support for quicktime which I haven't had the chance to use yet.

Thanks for that one too.
Boy this is a great board...the stuff I've learned since I joined up.
For the most part, you can play .mov (quicktime) movies in mplayer with just using the win32 codecs. There are as well quicktime specific codecs you can use, check out google.com/linux for a bit more info on getting/installing these.
