Mount the DMG of the codecs (if your system is not set up to automatically mount DMGs)
Wait for the countdown to go to zero and click on “Not now” to get to the app (or buy a license)
In Pacifist, click on “Open Package” and select the ProAppsQTCodecs.pkg on the downloaded DMG
In the following window, select the “Content of ProAppsQTCodecs.pkg in the lower list, and click on install in the upper left-hand corner.
