.mov are Quicktime files.
I'm quite surprised that Quicktime isn't the first application offering to play these videos.
Web authors can choose to not make their Quicktime videos downloadable to protect copyright.

As mrtotes indicated you don't need Flip4Mac or VLC to view .mov files. QuickTime and view these files even the streaming ones. There must be something else going on.
Make sure you are using the latest version of QuickTime.
Repair permissions & restart. Please post back your results.
Also, it would help us to know which G5 iMac "model" you have, how much RAM, etc. You can have this info displayed on the bottom of every post by going to 'preferences' which is located in the column on the right under your name, click on "My Settings" and filling in the information asked for.
This will help in providing you with the proper and/or correct troubleshooting solutions.
PS: If you do not know the model of your Mac, see Knowledge Base Article http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=301724#301724 How to identify your iMacG5 20' iMac w/iSight/Remote, 2.5GB RAM, 250GB HD, Mac OS X (10.4.7), Pappi's New Bling Bling Toy!
these short videos were placed online for people on particular professional list. It seems that PC users are able to download, but I can't.
Might I need Quicktime Pro, not just "player", which is what I have? Or is this related to the person posting rather than my computer?G5 17" iMac 512MB 2GHz, Mac OS X (10.4.2)
