I get Error banner that FF pops up says it needs quicktime demuxer.
When I click on search in the banner, it comes up with
"Gstreamer plugins with good code and license"
gstreamer-plugins-good-0.10.25-1.fc14.i686

However, I already DO have it:
$ rpm -q gstreamer-plugins-good
gstreamer-plugins-good-0.10.26-1.fc14.i686

So, what's wrong with FF???
It is version:
firefox-3.6.17-1.fc14.i686

that video plays fine for me. Centos 3.6, Firefox 4. Firefox uses
mplayer to play quicktimes.

what does "about:plugins" in firefox tell you?

here's what mine says:

QuickTime Plug-in 7.4.5

File: mplayerplug-in-qt.so

This is all that I see which is related to quicktime.
There are many other plugins reported for other media.


$ yum list installed 'mplayer*'

atrpms does not break it down to codecs, common and mplayerplugin.
all, except fonts and skins, are bundled with mplayer install.
