    Better change to 8.04 (do a clean installation, not an upgrade).

    However, this should also work in 7.04:

    and afterwards do this:

    No, that's specific for 8.04. Has nothing to do with the problem.

    Still my advice is: consider a clean installation of 8.04 and then follow the how-to I gave you.

    MPlayer has support for Quicktime movies.

    In Hardy the codecs are available stock or through w32codecs. If not, you can always install them manually via the binary package at:

    In mplayer right click and select preferences and then go to the video tab and select x11 for the driver, close mplayer and reopen with your .mov file

    hope that helps,
