Also, if you have quicktime Pro why isn't this mpeg-2 component a part of it???
This has been discussed ad nauseum
. Apple Computer does not own the MPEG-2 codec and has no right to give it away. The MPEG-2 QuickTime codec is the property of Sorensen. Sorensen sets the conditions on its use. FWIW, one of those conditions is that it can be used only with the QuickTime Player
. Other codecs may be used with any QuickTime-compatible app.
