Transmission is an awesome OS X torrent client. It suffered during its early stages, because most trackers would ban it due to it's easily exploitive code, but I hear that's been fixed now.

Getting the media is easy, and Transmission works fine, the problem I have is the codecs, I can't get any of them to play

You need MPlayer or VLC.

I have both. I find VLC's interface to be nicer, but it can have problems with seeking in MKV files with h264 video (along with some rare h264 video quirks), and it's soft-subtitle support STINKS. MPlayer's interface isn't as friendly, but doesn't suffer from those problems.

VLC sucks. It may play anything, but forget about softsubs. Some fansub groups even went as far as to sabotage their episodes so they would display a incoherent string of characters instead of proper subtitling. I use MPlayer in Linux, and so far I haven't had a single problem with it.

I assume you've already read this thread:
How to watch fansubs with your mac.

There are many other threads on Mac issues in the "Playback Help" forum. I'd look there.

I have used "Bits On Wheels" for the mac. All my torrenting has been with it. Slow, but very very dependable.
