os x 10.3.5 safari qt latest. works a treat. there are ways of writing
the embed tag that can force *any* content to play in QT no matter what
the mime type is, but that's not the object here. (but is handy to make
other things like flash play in QT 🙂 )

video/mp4 is a v. good way to go, so that on client if you have
different client to view mp4 you should be ok.
