I was able to extract a gif image from that video using MPlayer CVS 20050420:
mplayer -dumpvideo -dumpfile eu.dump eu.mov
dd if=eu.dump of=eu.gif bs=4 skip=1
The resulting file is a viewable gif image, but contains nothing more than a
horizontal bar.

  • Summary changed from Unable to play QuickTime movie to quicktime mov reference/playlist file not working in mplayer

http://www.siggraph.org/soma/SIG04/Media/disc4/crs022-1.mov
has a link to:
rtsp://vstream.acm.org/10.1145/siggraph2004/courses4/crs022-1.mp4

another mov file with reference link that mplayer and demuxer lavf does not follow.
