Codec packages for Mac

This post is more than 2 years old.

I recently tried to watch a video on my Intel Mac where the audio wouldn't work. On the PC I typically just grab k-lite, a large collection of codecs, and that takes care of the problem. Unfortunately I wasn't aware of such a thing for the Mac. Dean Saxe came to my rescue and pointed out this great resource:

Codec Pack for all the new Mac Users!

This was just Digged yesterday but I must have missed it. (Spent the day in New Orleans.)

Anyway - I downloaded the package and it worked perfectly. My 100% legal/not ripped movie now works great.

Ray, I've just upgraded from PowerBook to MacBook Pro and the quickest and easiest way to do codecs on the Mac, and PC for that matter, is VideoLan (VLC):

This player has everything including Flash video already bundled inside it.
