Yes on the "Offical" CD's and DVD RealPlayer, Flash, Java, Quicktime, etc. are all available, including the corresponding Konqueror and Mozilla plugins.

They are there.

Do this, make sure your urpmi sources are set to the "official" release CD's or DVD's (these files are NOT on the repositories, they are in the applications folder of CD 4 or 5 don't remember which...)

The download versions do not have them...

then

urpmi quicktime flash real plugins

Qicktime

Hi Opjose ,Sharkee
Have installed Quicktime in XP and Chinese music site is on screen but audio not very good
Linux Opera without Quicktime installed no music box player appears on screen.
Not clear as to how to make use of your root@zd 7000 commands for libquicktime
Had a look at Linuxloader search for Linux Quicktime nothing shows up.
So untill Linux has Quicktime version I have to use XP
Appreciate your help
Maurice

Apple makes no Quicktime for Linux. This will probably not change.

Open quicktime will play back most, but not all Internet Quicktime streams w/o problems and works within the browsers.

"Quicktime currently available 6.5.2 not listed for linux"

No, nor will it be, rather you have to install the quicktime RPM's I listed out with the rpm -qa commands.

That is install these files yourself via using urpmi.

E.G.

urpmi openquicktime-1.0-6plf libquicktime-0.9.3-1mdk libquicktime0-0.9.3-1mdk
urpm libquicktime-progs-0.9.3-1mdk libquicktime-dv-0.9.3-1mdk


You CAN run the Apple Windows version of Quicktime under Linux using a commercial program called Crossover.
