So, here's how to install Quicktime on Ubuntu using Wine. I'm using Wine 1.3.28 and downloaded Quicktime 7.7.1 from Apple's site.
~$ cd Downloads
~$ wine QuickTimeInstaller.exe
Proceed as usual with Windows apps, and you're done.

As is the case when running Windows apps using Wine, there's some quirks with the installed software. Some things don't work the way they should on native Windows.
- You get a error dialog after you close Quicktime. This doesn't affect Quicktime's normal operations so just close it. You're done with it anyway.
- Quicktime's web content never loads. This doesn't affect .mov playback though
