>In previous versions of OS X, if I went to ~/Library/Quicktime, I could see all the codecs used by QuickTime.
QuickTime codecs have never been stored in the username/Library location. As they are not user specific (or at least, they should not be). They are in the main Macintosh HD/Library and Macintosh HD/System/Library.
> For some reason, under Mountain Lion, this folder doesn't exist.
Lion hides the User Library directory by default.
Temporary access: Make Finder the active app. Hold the option key and click on Go in the menu bar. Select the Library directory.
Permanent access: Launch Terminal and enter the following:
chflags nohidden ~/Library/
Same issue but that installer won't work for me because I don't have FCP, Motion or Compressor installed. Installer blocks you from installing if you don't have one of these apps. I have a machine that just needs to be able to read the ProRes CODEC, but has none of the Pro Apps installed.
Anyone able to figure out how to install this package from Apple without one of the ProApps installed first?
Or anyone up for opening up the installer so I can access these CODECs? I can terminal the rest of the way just can't get the dern thing to open....
