My IE7 won't play some videos like this one

It says when you move your mouse pointer over the play to click here to activate this control, but after I have done that nothing happens. Some with Quicktime do the same, I just have the player with a question mark in the players screen. WMP seems to work ok in browser.
Please no get Firefox or other browser replys.

Update QT. An update came out the other day.

What's New in QuickTime 7.3
QuickTime 7.3 addresses critical security issues and delivers:
- Updated support for creating iPhone-compatible web content
- Updated JavaScript support in the QuickTime Web Plug-in
- Numerous bug fixes

I'd completely uninstall the current version of QT before getting and installing 7.3 as Speedy said above.

It is funny that when you go and play some video's and your player is out of date, some sites till you. Another site I go to use's Flash player but it still works. Perhaps they are not on the new version.
