Kubuntu won't natively run Quicktime as it is closed proprietary
format, but if you sign up for Crossover Office, you'll be able to run
the Quicktime player on your system.

To get AVI files played on the Kubuntu system, you'll need to install
the vlc player, and then wincodecs package from the restricted
repositories. Or at least I THINK thats what I did.......
