Do these solutions require an on-line connection to those sites to get the cab files? If so they will not work for me. I need a standalone solution, even if I have to install something on the laptop, that is fine, as long as it will work when I’m not online.
I would like the player to have controls, pause, continue, volume, full screen, etc.
Just download the Quicktime player/browser pluggin. Once the pluggin is installed in your Web browser, you don't keep to be conntected to the Intenet to play .mov files. http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/
