Check this for a list of avialable/installed codecs with QT:

Sorry, no idea :-)

No need for that in this case.
This is only demanded by Apple if you enclose the Apple QT-installer
in your product!

Apple will surely like that ;-)

You could use Trevor's WONDERFUL Enhanced QT External to create your
own batch script in Rev for this task!
