    Quicktime codec
    A guy was telling me that I needed to install various types of codec in my Quicktime application to view different types of video.

    I don't quite understand what it is, where I get it and where I put it.

    Help.

    if you have qt pro, codecs are also useful for editing and converting audio and video. I know I have a lot, I love qt pro.:mac:

    The sad fact is, some codecs do not exist for the mac and some AVI files will not play on a Mac.

    Nice list though...

    but those avi can be converted easily using various apps producing a file that will play.
