Install QuickTime and configure the browser plugin in Firefox so you can view QuickTime media from your courses. If you currently have QuickTime on your Windows computer and you still can't see QuickTime media, please uninstall the version you have and use these directions to install and configure the most recent version of QuickTime.
Download and Install QuickTime
Download the latest version of QuickTime from here: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/. You do NOT need to enter in an email address. Go ahead and select the Download Now button.
In the upper right corner of your Firefox window, the download arrow will indicate that QuickTime has indeed downloaded. Select this arrow and then the QuickTime file. You will want to save the file to the computer when asked.
You will then be prompted to install QuickTime. Please select next and follow through the steps to install.
Modifying the Application
Now, locate where you have your applications.
In Windows Vista (above), go to Control Panel, select Classic View, and select Programs and Features. From the list, right-click QuickTime and then change.
In Windows 10 (below), go to Settings and use the first box to search for QuickTime. When you locate the application, you will be able to modify it. Select Modify.
After selecting Modify, select the QuickTime Web Plug-in by selecting next to the X in the box. Select the second option "Entire Feature will be installed on local hard drive." Notice that the X will change to a drive icon.
Now select the Change... button and allow the installation. Select Finish when completed.
Check Browser Plugin
Open Firefox and select add-ons from the far right menu in the browser.
Notice the QuickTime Plug-in and make sure the plug-in setting is Always Activate.
