watching quicktime on linx? missing qtmlclient.dll codec?


Hey all, im trying to watch some quicktime videos, but they require quicktime.. so i get the win32 pack and it still won't show... i then see what it's encoded in and it's qtmlclient.dll or something

Where can i get this?

What are you watching them with? And what 'win32' pack did you get, and what did you do with it?

I'd use mplayer and I'm guessing you are to with the 'win32' pack. If so, can you post the output of:
mplayer -vo xv filename.mov

Where filename.mov is the actual file.

Cool

Yeah, those dependencies can be a real pain. However, I'd grab the mplayer source and compile it and try from there.

Cool

Use mplayerplug-in to play them within a browser (check http://freshmeat.net )

You can download it with wget, OR rather I'd set my cache a bit higher in /etc/mplayer.conf Whichever you prefer.

Cool
