    When playing videos from websites is it possible to have quicktime open them up in quicktime itself instead of them opening up in Safari or Firefox? As when they open up in the browser they appear small in the centre of the browser.

    If you actually download a QT movie and have 'Open "safe" files after downloading' checked in Safari prefs I guess it would open the QT application. But 'they' usually advise this option be unchecked after a possible security issue was discovered, though this may not be an issue any more. If you don't download then you are talking about a website being able to open applications on your machine, which is pretty scary. Address book? Mail?
