Where is the plug-ins folder in OS X?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
When I install an app like (yikes) Windows Media Player in OS X, where does it put the web plug-in for IE at? I cant find an app-specific location for plug-ins (like in OS 9), and I cant seem to find a "generic" plug-ins folder in the system either (also like in OS 9)...

    Browser plugins typically go into ":Library:Internet Plug-Ins"

    There is a folder in your home library called "Internet Plug-ins." Any Carbon app usually either makes a plug-ins folder for itself in your home library folder or in the root library folder.

    All Cocoa application have a "Plugins" menu item in their Info window from the Finder (command-i). You can add and remove plug-ins for those apps from there.
