Quicktime on Slack
 
Is there a quicktime plugin for Slackware 14.0 x86_64?
I dont need to play media. I need to go to a website that requires that plugin to run the security modules I need.

Thanks for the help!

There's a way to do it, because Quicktime videos on the web can be viewed in Firefox on Linux Mint. I think grabbing the codecs from the MPlayer website should do the trick, but I haven't tried it myself.

Nope there has to be more than that to it... There has to be a way to tell firefox that he can play quicktime... :/

Any ideas?

TIA.

I have a LM 14 disk sitting at home, I'll have to boot it later and see what they are doing for Quicktime in Firefox... now I'm curious, too. :study:

Surely installing the mplayer plugin in /extra will do the trick? (assuming you have mplayer installed)

I think it's referred to as gecko-mediaplayer on *buntu distros.

I just looked after installing the mplayerplugin-in pkg from /extra. That is the package for doing quicktime, at least that's what Firefox is telling me. I haven't tested it out on any quicktime files.
