Ah, well I doubt the quicktime support works tho. From time to time  
some have tried Sophie under Unix and made some changes for that  
platformbut the Sophie team isn't explicitly supporting the platform  
at this time. Again the quicktime support is an issue, however we do  
have a decision pointwhere you pick the media player so right now we  
choice between the quicktime player with plugin, Quicktime without  
plugin, the mpeg plugin, straight audio/ no video, and the AIFF and  
other obscure sound players within Squeak depending on the platform  
support and the media type. To support quicktime or many of the media  
types it supports, say MPEG4, you would need to plugin say an FFI  
interface to mPlayer or something.
