Using Windows 95? I think the newest you can go is qt5.zip.
Some clips wouldn't play for me until I downloaded the latest version of Microsoft DirectX from http://www.windowsupdate.com. I think this was because my Quicktime Player is configured to use DirectSound (part of DirectX) to play audio. You can also find DirectX at http://www.microsoft.com/games/en-US- /aboutgfw/Pages/directx10-a.aspx
If you're using Windows 95, the latest version of DirectX you can use is version 8.0, which is here.
When I first tried to play a .wmv in Windows 95, Windows Media Player tried to download a codec. So I connected to the internet, opened the .wmv again, and Windows Media Player automatically downloaded/installed the codec and played the .wmv.
