Quicktime video in Winamp

Today I uninstalled Apple’s Quicktime player. For whatever reason, I couldn’t make it release ownership of the MP3 filetype. Maybe it’s just me, maybe it’s just luck. But I’m having too many bad experiences with Apple products lately: iPod Shuffle, iTunes, now this. Thankfully, there’s something called ‘Quicktime Alternative‘ which seems to do everything I need it to do.
And with a quick tweak, the ever-reliable Winamp can become a Quicktime-compatible video player. Once you’ve installed Quicktime Alternative, click on Options > Preferences > Input plugins. Highlight ‘Nullsoft Directshow Decoder’, then press ‘Configure’, and add ;MOV to the end of the ‘extension list’. I love Winamp… never lets you down.
