I did this a long time ago, but I just checked and confirmed that the package 
was the same version.  I also just deinstalled and reinstalled it to no 
avail.

I am assuming that the Quicktime video is DivX compression.  I believe my 
software is installed correctly as best as I can tell.  Are there any 
decompression/bitrate/frequency-type settings that I need to be looking for?

I am going to check out Firefox, if it works in a Firefox based combination, 
then I have isolated the problem some.
