xdcam ex codec

I have a client who will be showing file-based cips at a meeting, using a mac, but not using FCP. Can I get the xdcam ex codec from my mac, copy it for him, and then he isntalls it and can run the material I've shot/cut as xdcam ex? If so, how do I do this?

Thanks in advance...

you can, but to do so you'd have to break the terms of your FCP license (ie it would be illegal)

have your clients use VLC to view the files (or you can buy the codec from Calibrated Software ... XD Decode)

Didn't know that. Thanks for the reply, and I'll pass the info along.
