I have a windows 7 system and would like to watch one of Apple's keynotes.

I have downloaded Quicktime player version 7.0 and it automatically starts as soon as I click on the video. But after starting nothing seems to be happening. I just see a Quicktime loading screen and that is it. No video seen. I have problems playing any Quicktime video for that matter especially from the Apple website.

What could be going wrong and how to fix?

Try using safari/chrome to open up the video, i`ve experienced some problems opening the video using firefox. – felipew Jan 19 '12 at 1:38

In the past I had ad blockers that picked up on Apple's website videos (not the keynote that you have mentioned specifically) but worth checking if you have any extensions or addons installed that is currently doing that

The loading screen is Safari downloading the video. Just wait a bit and see if the video loads. I have the same thing on Google Chrome. If it persists and doesn't load, try a different browser.
