Response to my earlier post.  Firefox didn't work for me either....

Just wondering, are there different versions of quicktime video streaming out 
there?  When I loaded a version of quicktime on my wife's XP laptop the video 
lectures didnt play....then I upgraded quicktime to the latest version off 
the web they worked fine.
