And, why dont the Macs just come with a codec that supports all the different media types? I mean, not even QT Pro supports every media format.

Thanks in advance. =D
Macs are UNIX based and therefor natively incompatible with Windows Apps. If Apple were to make OSX compatible with Windows Apps, OSX would have to become Windows for them all to work properly. Neither Apple or M$ is going to let that happen.

Many of the codecs do not exist for the Mac because no one has written them for the Mac. This is neither Apple's or M$s fault, but that of the people who refuse to write the codecs for the Mac.
