I'm using Firefox 3.6.3 on Win 7 x64. Some web sites require QuickTime plugin. How can I install Firefox QuickTime plugin without installing Apple's QuickTime? I definitely don't want to install QuickTime to my system.

This is an EXCELLENT question. The real QuickTime, like so much of Apple's software, is bloated beyond extreme! – eidylon Apr 29 '10 at 14:39

What you need is QT Lite.

QT Lite is a trimmed down version of QuickTime that contains only the essential components needed for playing QuickTime content that is embedded in web pages.
