i think you have bad luck...

As far as i know, QuickTime is the only multimedia-layer on OS X.
It is a part of the "deeper" core of OS X.

Means: QuickTime or die ;-)

This is from the doxs:

This property can be used on UNIX systems to specify an alternate
name for the xanim player used to play movies with the "play" command.

Since there is no Xanim player of OS X i think you cannot cahnge that...

Anyway, have a nice weekend :-)
