Apple Quick time question

I have a client that uses quick time on his home computer. He also uses a helmet cam to record when he is riding his motorcycle. Then he pulls the SD card from the helmet cam and uploads it to his home PC using quick time.
He would like to be able to view these videos and what not on a BB Curve 2.
I have searched and found that quick time is an apple software, so I am assuming there is no way to download quick time to a Blackberry.
Does anyone know of a similar software to quicktime that would work on the Verizon Wireless Blackberry Curve 2??

Thanks for your help!

Will anyone start utilizing the accelerometer on the impression?

I've had the phone for a couple of months now and have been very disappointed with it. There aren't any good games, software, or anything. Even on media mall where you need to pay for them. The only things I've found that the accelerometer works with is the stuff already on the phone (ie dice, rotating pictures, or the screen).

Does anyone know if, when, or where I could get anything for this phone. You think for the price there would be something.

Also, with my old sony ericsson w580i, most of the apps were free and just required the internet to use (one example being music id). Now with the impression I got a "sweet" trial that was over before I had even really used it.

Also, what's up with the GPS costing money! Is there any way ...
