Default .MOV in Windows Media Player

Does Windows Media Player not support .MOV files? That is some bu!!$h!t! I download .MOV files from the internet, but WMP will not support them. Is this because I have an out-of-date version (Even though it is 9.0) or can I download a codec for it to be supported?

Apples QuickTime is what makes .mov files.

Microsoft is only intersted in the M$ world so no native support for .mov's.

What you need to do is dload the Quicktime player from here:

Or try the QT Alternative here (its a smaller dload):

I hate Real Player, and I hate Quicktime. They do nothing but cause trouble, and install ma spyware. One of my instructors downloaded a package which gave him .MP3 ripping support and DVD playback support with WMP. Is there some sort of third party package I can get for Media Player? I dont want to wander astray from Media Player if I dont have to, sounds weird but I like it. Does what I need it to do.
