quicktime and Linux

Hi one and all. Heres the back ground to the problem, I have Linux Zorin installed and realy like it I think its better than windows for what I need a computer for I cant say that I understand more than 25% , but that gives my lots of room to grow.but back to the problem. I downloades a quicktime video on how to sing Gregorian chant all went well and I managed to unzip the file so I opend the video and had vision but now sound tride several players VLC, Gnome Mplayer SMplayer xine all with vision but no soundnot good if one is trying to learn how to chant oh forgot Iḿ using firefox as my brouser
Just thought could I download the video using a pc say from an internet cafe onto my usb stick and play it that way using one of tha universal players.
looking forward to your solutions.

Post a link to the video that you downloaded. I'll look at it. You need the audio and video codecs installed for the media you are trying to play.

I have just downloaded the form

Looking at the file in MediaInfo
there is a 89 audio tracks in that file,
so could it be because of that that there is no audio playback?

This is what is says below the download text on the webiste:

"When the opening slide appears, wait about 20 seconds then press the spacebar to move from slide to slide. There is no sound on the first 5 slides.

On slide 6, you will hear a note played on piano - if not, adjust the volume on your computer.
If you have any problems with the file, make sure that the entire 451 MB file has downloaded."

In my Totem Media Player I have no Audio showing in the properties of the file.
In my VLC I can hear on slide 6 one piano tone and after that no more audio.

I would say that the file is not correctly recorded, the file has bean created using Apple Keynote 5.1, so I would not be surprised ..
