I have just installed the Crossover utility and added the Quicktime plugin. Unfortunatly I have a little problem, some quicktime files won't play ;(. Those files on www.quicktime.com/trailer/ isn't working for example.
184.108.40.206. Some QuickTime movies don't work. Is it because of the firewall?
Typically you would be able to view our QuickTime demo pages but not the trailers on Apple's web site under this scenario. The reason is that while QuickTime uses the browser to download the movies from our demo pages, on Apple's web site QuickTime gets the movies directly, thus being blocked by the firewall. The fix is to configure QuickTime for getting through the firewall. To do that, start QuickTime by launching it from the desktop icon, or by loading a QuickTime movie in your web browser. Then bring up the "QuickTime Settings" dialog box (via the Edit->Preferences->QuickTime Preferences menu in the player, or the Plug-In Settings menu in the plugin). Then in the drop down box select the "Streaming Proxy" item. There unselect "Use system settings" and fill in the appropriate entry or entries for your firewall.
