There are also a Mac versions of mplayer and mencode available under the
ffmpegX umbrella, a Mac alternative to ffmpeg. I've had mixed success
playing various formats and converting the formats on my Mac, but mplayer
seems to be more flexible than Apple's QuickTime application in playing
different formats. My understanding is that a QuickTime player is available
for Windows, but not for Linux. ImageMagick and its command line interface
is so flexible as to be totally confusing to me.
