Can't Get Apple Movie Trailers To Work On Mint

The title says it all really, neither the standard or high definition trailers will play from the apple site.
It's trying to play them in mplayer 0.9.4 but the status bar at the bottom just flashes between zero time and "stopped". I've got a standard install plus I'm up to date with updates. Is there something else I need?

Bob you will need to install the Quicktime plugin.
I haven't used it so not 100% sure where to get it from, try the repo's and the firefox plugin site
Or on further checking (see http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=7820472) apple have changed the website to stop Linux users getting the video Crazy

Thanks Biker, I thought I had all the right components installed.
Not a big deal and presumably someone will find a way round the Apple spoiler at some point.
