Quicktime 5.0 Equivalent/ Movie Players?


I am trying to play a .mov file which came from a digital camera (Minolta 7i) and under Windoze which plays it under Quicktime 5.0.

I cannot get Xine or Totem to play the sound with the movie. Xine does not include .mov extension in it's extension list. (Plays using everything.)

Anyone, suggest a program that can play .mov files under Linux?

Like the previous person suggested, MPlayer works like a charm! It can even play Microsoft files like WMZ! It's an all-in-one player!

If you have Mandrake, just go to your control center and ADD RPM'S and type in MPlayer and it'll install it automatically for you. But you still need to get the easy to install RPM codecs.

If you don't have Mandrake, then you may have to go download MPLayer yourself and do all the manual work which I could not figure out how to do. Good luck~!
