You can use QuickTime Alternative.

It is QuickTime codec pack without player and work great on Win98SE.

I sort of found a solution for Quicktime on 98. I am sure that most of you know that the latest version of QT will not install on Win98/ME.

Check this out


and VLC(www.videolan.org), I imagine Mplayer for windows could also work.

Thank goodness for these projects.

I am curious if other know of media players that could work for quickime?

QuickTime 6.5.2 shows everything it always did. I install QuickTime, reboot, then install QuickTime 6.5.2 and uncheck the tray icon, check to use defaults on Mime and File Types, and check to use General Midi on the music tab (so it'll use my Soundfonts instead of the Quicktime Synth).

So far no alternative's will play the newer format for video that QuickTime 7 and above have. But I've noticed recently that sites will now play at least the audio portions instead of simply refusing to play like they used to. Files using the older video format play normally.

I only install the older because I have games that need that to be installed. I do the same thing on XP, but install the latest QuickTime instead of 6.5.2 of course.
