Have to agree with Adam on this one.  CrossOver Office would be your
best bet in getting QuickTime to Embed within Mozilla.  VMWare is
definatly over kill, as it's meant to be a Complete PC Emulator.  So
it would be overkill.

CrossOver Office is great for plugins
like Apple QuickTime, Macromedia Flash 8.0, and so on.  So definatly,
that would be the way to go.
