The web is exactly the the place where the hearsay comes from (and no
disrespect taken).
I just thought that because the w32codecs package contains dll's for the
PC/Intel architecture that it won't work on the Mac.
That opinion was also formed from the Ubuntu help page on Restricted
Formats [1]
I am also well aware that most of the packages on *ubuntu work as well
on the Mac as on a PC, I have just heard or some cases that people need
help installing Linux on a Mac.
Let me also make clear that I have never use a Mac, let alone installed
Linux on one, so what I'm saying is, exactly, hearsay.
And that I'm also being informed by the information you are giving to
me, and I thank you for that.
