I haven't gotten my copy of the Cornell Mac 1.0 alpha client yet :) , but I
believe they migrated to using the QuickTime standard method of supporting
components such as codecs (as opposed to in-lining them).

White Pine does this in their Mac client.

It allows the user to select ANY codec installed on their system and use it
for encoding.

Ahhhh...the wonders of the Mac component architecture.
