MOV videofiles (Quicktime)

Windows Live Photo Gallery imports and plays fine several
videoformats, like mpg.
However, my Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ 50 produces videofiles in Quicktime
format - MOV.
WLPG does not display these files and will not play them.

Everytime I start WLPG, a dialog box pops up and tells me that it
needs to install codecs to support RAW and Quicktime files. A button
says "Download". Clicking download, brings me to Apples Quicktime
website for download.
I install Quicktime - however no change. Every time I start WLPG, it
keeps on directing me to Apples website.

Anyone know if support for Quicktime MOV files can be installed with
Windows Live Photo Gallery under WIndows XP?

=======================================
Have a look at the following FAQs:

I shoot RAW with my digital camera. How do
I get the right codecs so I can view them in Windows?

My camera takes Quicktime video. How do
I see those files in the Windows Vista Photo Gallery?

Similar problem.
I've installed QuickTime Alternative, which installs codecs only, and
there's no way to see mov files with PG.
It seems that PG had been released a little incomplete. There's a lot of
missing features...

Can you change formats to something more cross-platform like AVI? I see less
and less QT than I used to.

Often these mov files are mjpeg (motion jpeg), not Quicktime,
which can be played with WMP and probably in photogallery as well. Just
change the extension to avi.
