Quicktime works not very well with Wine. I can not recommend it. There
are much better players and for sure there are so many under linux that
I never saw a use for windows players. Whereas friends of mine are alway
struggling with codecs and broken files not correctly displayed, I had
never problems on linux with mplayer or xine and the avifile library.

If you like you can try to use Quicktime with WineTools, that cares
about a config working with it. Mostly it does:

- using "setarch i386 wine" instead of "wine" as a command on Fedora
- having a part in the config, that disables the usage of DirectDraw as
  this is known to trash your X-Display on many cards (as with mine)
  "ddraw" = ""

Sound is generaly not very good on slow systems and if you use something
like arts. wineoss is for sound the best on my system.
