I am using ubuntu 11.04 natty version where i have tried all the possible solutions posted on the internet regarding the quicktime plugin. Installed gecko mplayer and removed totem and movie player but nothing worked so far. Is it working for anyone else ?

Can u tell me what version of Firefox u r using?
Go to the installation directory of Firefox and check whether you have a directory named plugin.

if not, then create a directory named 'plugins'. if the firefox installed in different directory other than default location you have to copy-paste the plugin file manually to Firefox->plugins directory.
This will help you.

Yes i do have a plugins.dat file, i tried that but it doesn't work, by the way i am using FIREFOX 4.0.1 the latest
when you install mplayer, you have plugins directory in the installation directory. copy the quicktime plugin (npqtplugin) from it and paste it in firefox 'plugins' directory.

enter about:plugins in address bar and let me know how many plugins you have and weather it list out quick time plugin there.
