Mplayer - FREE software - also platform independent - works on Mac  
hardware.  Also works under Windows and Linux.
Plays those codecs you spoke of and others.

Actually, the Mac itself (out of the box) uses Unix, which is where  
Linux was born.

Hate to sound like a crusader, and I mean no disrespect whatsoever,  
but you and others like you
get your info from heresay instead of facts.

Please use the web to educate yourself, and save yourself some time  
and (ultimately) frustration.
