Hi HC,

I just tried out the latest Extended installer. I like the new look and 
was hoping for more stability.

But I ran into a big problem...I can't load any of the videos I used to. 
All are mov files with photoJPG compression. Not only in the latest 
version, but in all the other versions of PD I have installed. I could 
have sworn I used them in the new PD release last night, but today 
nothing works!

I'm downloading the test4 DMG again, since that's the last "trustworthy" 
version I used, and hopefully it will fix the problem.

But I'm interested in how the video codecs are loaded, it doesn't seem 
so transparent since there's nothing in the settings or paths to 
determine what set of codecs are used. Where are they stored on OS X, 
and how is it that a newer version of PD can nuke the codecs for the 
other versions?
