Is it MOV? Anyway, do you have mplayer installed? It comes with a wide set 
of codecs; usually, it can play any movie you can find. Later you'll find 
mplayer/mencoder very useful, if you're going to deal with home videos.

This question is not about running a digicam as a regular user; this is 
about mounting your camera as a regular user. Search the archive; there 
are a lot of examples and brief HOW-TOs.
By the way, is your camera listed among supported devices in libgphoto2? My 
camera (Olympus Stylus800) is not supported yet. But as long as I can 
mount it and download all the pics/movies, I don't mind.
