How can I play .mov files on Android 2.2+ without converting them?

I am looking for a way to install Codecs rather than find a video player on the market if possible.

Thank you.

Rockplayer supports .mov files (at least the ones that I've attempted to view). The GUI isn't fantastic, it's basically just a file manager look, but I don't find myself watching video on my phone much. There could be additional options as well.

According to this forum post, there are a few media players on the Android Market that will play them (possibly with a little chop and jitter?) natively on the phone.
