    i swear i downloaded a bunch of different ones even that i do not need but might need in the future.
    this is from the page where quicktime tells you to go from the apple site

    so my question is.
    where can i find what i actually need to watch these.

    is there a way i can tell from the file what i need extra?

    anything of that nature.







    i would really appriciate it a lot if someone helped me find this because i feel like i am back on a windows computer when i have something like this.

    Have you tried Perian?

    Also, when QuickTime has trouble playing video, I'll use VLC.

    wow that was magical
    i love the install of perian
    why can't others do the same, ie. going into the library and put it in quicktime folder and such

    perian worked.
    thanks a lot a lot a lot a lot.
