I'm with a refresh Snow Leopard install. What Codec Pack (for DivX, XviD, etc) should I install?

  • Perian is a codec pack that will suit most of your needs.

  • Alternatively, if you install VLC, you can use that player to play almost all video formats you can throw at it.

  • Installing Windows Media Components for QuickTime (Flip4Mac) enables you to play Windows media files.

  • With VLC, I don't need to install codecs? It have them? – Zote Oct 15 '09 at 10:57
  • @zote That's right, you don't need to install additional codec packs with VLC. From the VLC website: "It doesn't need any external codec, program or codec pack to work." – Daan Oct 15 '09 at 12:01
