I was wondering if there's a ffdshow kind of solution for Mac systems....
ffdshow, AFAIK, not only runs only under Windows, but uses several Windows components to work. I believe what you are looking for is ffmpeg, which is integrated into MPlayer. There is a version of MPlayer made specifically for the Mac. You can find it here: http://mplayerosx.sourceforge.net/
You can also get ffmpeg separately for the Mac here: http://homepage.mac.com/major4/
These Mac alternatives may not be as flexible or powerful as the Windows version (I'm guessing here because I've never seen the Windows version), but work is continuing and, hopefully, with more people interested in HTMacs, we'll soon have something as good, if not better!
