    Specs:
    Mac Mini, iPad Air 2, iPhone 5S, Apple TV 4th Gen, Apple Watch (38mm Link Bracelet)
    FrontRow and Codecs
    Now since FrontRow will be out next week, the wait for an iMac gets even more unbearable, and, being a windows user, i wanted to know some things about video in QT.

    Since FrontRow will use QT, i wondered, can I play all my DivX, Xvid and MPG in QT? How is the codec situation out there? I wonder if I can use Frontrow with another player than QT, thoug improbable.

    And I also wonder if I can let FrontRow list my DVD-Rips of The O.C. in TV-Shows rather than Movies, because I fear that only itunes store-bought files will be listed there.

    Should this whole video thing eb a peach? Or is viewing diefferent files in QT a pain?

    You can download codecs for DivX, xvid, and most others from MacUpdate and you'll have no problem.

    As for your other question, I have no idea how that will work since Front Row is not released yet.

    Your DVD Rips won't appear in the TV category - only iTunes bought stuff will.
    All of my movies have played fine so far...
