    Many times they go in the Library/Quicktime folder on your hard drive.

    What codecs were in the torrent file?
    I am curious to know what codecs were in the pack you downloaded because I have yet to find a complete set that allows me to play the most obscure of file types. Now I have vlc media player, but I would like to find a way to make quicktime as compatible as vlc. If possible could you please provide me with a link to the torrent or subsequently the codec pack itself?

    Thanks
