    Video codecs?
    I recently reformatted my MBP and because I set the thing up with all of the software more than two years ago, I had forgotten where I'd found the video codec pack(s) that I had installed. Now I'm finding many file types that won't play, even in VLC. Would someone be so kind as to point me to some of the resources I may need to get everything in working order again as far as video playback goes?

    2.8 GHz 15" MacBook Pro OS X 10.7.x & some old Macs
    Usually using the latest version of VLC and Perian works for most people.

    I do have a backup. But the only thing I had installed that showed up in applications was Flip4Mac. The codecs were all installed behind the scenes I guess.
