NanoBite is an unknown at this point

I didn't realise that I have the Universal version for my Intel Core2Duo iMac.

I got it from here:

Finally we have a working AC3 codec that works on the Intel Macs. Get it from A52Codec 1.7.2 - VersionTracker. This one really works

Usually you will find AC3 audio on those common DivX movies, DVDs etc. Until now ac3 audio would not play on the Intel Macs- both on Front Row or Quick Time. Sometime back, somewhere on the web, I came across another universal ac3 code for QT, but this one just kept crashing the QA player or Front Row.

With this new A52Codec v 1.7.2 universal binary available at Version Tracker, ac3 audio playes great on QT or Front row. The code appears pretty stable and the audio clear.

The download comes in a dmg format. After clicking on the DMG from the Finder, itís almost drag and drop install.

Drag & drop the A52Codec.component into /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components
Drag & drop the AC3MovieImport.compontent into /Library/QuickTime
Drag & drop to your Applications folder.
