MPlayer and Quicktime Audio

I'm running Fedora 1. I just tried to watch some trailiers on Quicktime's site, and the video comes out just fine but there is no audio. I don't get any errors or anything, and I am not running any other apps that are using the audio. No other programs have any problems with sound.

I'm guessing I need some sort of codec, but how do I add it on to mplayer given that I have the stock Fedora version?

From my experience I think this is a problem with MPlayer.

I'm using the same codecs for Xine and MPlayer yet Xine can play QT audio on files when MPlayer can't.
