    Yeah, I wish I could get somehelp on this but I really am starting to think that other than the switcher forum, this whole site isnt alot of help. I've asked a couple of... more complex questions and only gotten crickets and silence in return. Google is your friend.

    Make sure any codecs you download are either universal or for intel macs

    i have found this forum to be VERY helpfull, every question i have asked has been answered, i understand some people dont like all these stupid questions, but everyone starts to learn from somewhere.
