   I just looked into this and found that because of changes other  
parts of the OS, QuickTime Player X requires components to export the  
type(s) they support with UTIs in the Info.plist file in the component  
bundle. UTIs are documented here: http://developer.apple.com/macosx/uniformtypeidentifiers.html 

   For example, the entry for video/ogg might look like this:

             <string>Ogg Video</string>

   QuickTime team is working with tech pubs to get this documented.
