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"

However, I already DO have it:
$ rpm -q gstreamer-plugins-good

So, what's wrong with FF???
It is version:

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:
