I'm having trouble getting HTTP Live streaming to work on my desktop in any browser. Sample pages like the following work fine on the iPad and others' computers in Safari, but I get a black screen and no sound in Safari and a big quicktime with a question mark on mine:

What do I need to do to make HTTP Live Streaming work on my desktop? I am running a MacBook Pro with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, OS X 10.6.8, Safari 5.1.2, and QuickTime 10.0.
