New QuickTime codecs available Install
This may be old news, but I haven't seen it anywhere else yet ... Vasantha C. sends along word that the On2 and ZyGoVideo QuickTime codecs are now available.

To get them, open the QuickTime pane in System Preferences, select the 'Update' tab and then select Install new 3rd-party QuickTime software. Then click 'Update Now...' and wait for it to tell you your software needs updating. Then click 'Custom' and select the new components you want to install.

Oddly enough, QuickTime told me that my software was current, but I went ahead and hit the Custom button anyway. I was somewhat surprised when not only the two codecs were listed, but a QuickTime Update as well. I installed all three without any problems.

QuickTime Update

Go back and check to see if the QuickTime Update still says "Not Installed". Then highlight it (click once on it) and notice the download is 0 KB.

Those codecs have been around for ages... At least 2 weeks for the VP3 codec, and probably a few months for the zygovideo codec... (I remember downloading the OSX version from their site many many months ago, and I think that they made it available through the automatic update shortly afterwards.

fwiw, the VP3 codec is not as good as it could/should be. If you want a better OSX VP3 codec, get it here.. the VP3 codec is open source and stuff, so if anyone wants to play around with it, they can get their grubby hands on it here (well, you have to log in and stuff)
