Taking a look at the source for that recipe, it looks like it parses the first parameter up to the first ":" and acts on it like so:
if it equals "Attach", then it follows the convention of pmwiki in displaying files from the upload directory, possibly modified by Groupname and Pagename.
otherwise, if it equals "http", then it treats the first parameter as a fully-qualified url.
to do what you want, i think, do:
(:quicktime http://mydomain.com/myvids/movie.mov :)
