    Gspot for mac
    For windows I had an app called gspot that analyzed video files and told me what video and audio codecs it required and whether I had them. Is there something like that for mac? I keep running accross video files I can't open and I would prefer to only install the codecs I need.

    VLC Player. It will open almost any video file.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    MAC is an acronym for Media Access Control (as in MAC address). Mac is a contraction for Macintosh. Some people type MAC to mean a Macintosh... which is clearly wrong, because you don't type 'Hi, I have a MACintosh' do you?

    I think his sig is referring to the fact that forums attract many people who either cannot type, or are illiterate, which is quite possibly a fair assessment.

    Zoolook is very correct.

    VideoLan will play the file if that is all you need.

    As for a program like Gspot that tells you what each file's compression or bitrate is for mac is unknown by me.

    That's unfortunate. I had found gspot to be a useful tool.

    I'm pretty sure mac was different to Mac which was different to MAC.
    We know:
    MAC=Media Access Control
    Mac= word short for Macintosh
    but what was mac for? I remember soemone's sig said mac was a rubber rancoat or something if I remember correctly. Would anyone know anything about this?
