I'd like to play them on Sarge. Just today I clicked on a .mov file and
was asked if I wanted to use the default program (gmplayer). I said
yes, but after it DL'd the file it complained that it could not find the
proper codec (I don't remember, now, which codec it was looking for).
Is there some place to get the proper codecs to make these work. If so,
where is it? If not, why give a default player that can not actually
play the file?
