  • Title: Perian - The swiss-army knife of QuickTime® components
    Descriptive info: .. A notice to all of our users and supporters.. We began the Perian project over 6 years ago.. We wanted to simplify viewing your content.. Our team has attained that goal and with that in mind, Perian will be retired soon.. Our stewardship has been a blast but it's time for all of us to move on.. From the beginning we kept Perian simple.. Our preferences were minimal, updating was easy, and we gradually grew the product to add in extras like subtitles and different formats.. We've contributed a lot.. Today, Perian stands as complete as it ever will be under our stewardship.. There are some projects that we never got to.. As an example, we would have liked an official, flexible, and well-documented import API to speed up MKV.. We hit a brick wall there.. Still, we reached a great stopping point and Perian's installed userbase proves how valuable this tool became to so many people.. Starting 90 days after the final Perian release, we will no longer provide support.. We'll wrap up our loose ends, pack up our bags, and move on to new and exciting projects.. Here's what our roadmap looks like:.. We will soon release the final version of Perian, including all the fixes we've worked on since the last release.. It may -- or may not -- work on 10.. 8.. We will post the source code to either Google Code or Github.. Here's what we're looking for from you, our users.. Download Niceplayer.. , it's pretty great -- and those folks are doing a fantastic job.. Support each other on our.. Google Group list.. We mean this.. Just because we aren't helping anymore on a regular basis, that doesn't mean that.. you.. can't.. Are you a developer? Pick up where we left off.. Join us on #perian on irc.. freenode.. net.. Yeah, we're all pretty busy -- so stick around after asking your question.. You may have to wait a bit for an answer.. Chalk it up to asynchronous tech support.. Want to donate? We appreciate the thought.. It's hard times these days and your money will make a bigger impact elsewhere.. Consider.. Child's Play.. ,.. Ronald McDonald House.. , or the.. EFF.. We no longer accept donations.. A final word: If and when Perian stops working, try looking into VLC or MPlayer OS X.. Sure, they're not Perian, but they offer great software still under development.. Thanks for all of your support over the years.. It has meant a lot to all of us.. Chris Forsythe.. Graham Booker.. Alexander Strange.. Augie Fackler.. PS We would like to thank Erica Sadun for helping us write this letter, and for general guidance.. Download Perian 1.. 2.. 3 Now!.. Mac OS X 10.. 4.. 7 or higher.. 10.. 3 makes the.. iceweasel cower in fear.. Perian extends QuickTime support for many popular types of media.. Check out NicePlayer!.. NicePlayer uses Perian to make your media viewing experience the best.. File formats.. AVI.. DIVX..  ...   The internet TV platform.. Miro.. and Airport Express streaming app.. Airfoil.. include Perian.. The Perian Project would like to thank special contributors.. Jérôme Cornet of.. FFusion.. and Christoph Nägeli of.. XviD_Codec.. for the.. AviImporter.. FFmpeg.. for providing such a rich audio/video codec library.. Dag Ågren and the Mozilla Foundation for the universal.. Charset Detector.. Matroska.. for the audio/video container libraries.. Perian software downloads are provided by.. Cachefly.. , Thanks!.. Installation and Removal of Perian.. Please consider removing obsolete QuickTime Components: FFusion, Xvid Delegate, 3ivX, DivX, DivX Decoder, XviD, msmpeg4v1, msmpeg4v2, AviImporter, EX_M4S2, Casio AVI Importer, AC3 Codec, and MatroskaQT.. How do I remove Perian?.. Open the System Preferences.. Select the Perian pane and 'Remove.. ' Now 'Show All' preference panes, control-click the Perian pane and 'Remove "Perian" Preference Pane.. '.. Frequently Asked Questions.. Why does it take so long for MKV to load?.. QuickTime expects to know the location of every single frame in a movie in order to play it.. This is easy with its native format, MOV/MP4, but more difficult for several others, including MKV.. Perian has to read in the entire file in order for seeking and playback to work.. Does hardware acceleration for H.. 264 work with Perian?.. QuickTime supports hardware acceleration for some profiles of H.. 264; however, which profiles these are is not documented and may change on different Mac models.. We do our best not to interfere, and some MKV files are known to work with hardware-accelerated decoding.. I thought Perian allowed me to play MPEG files, but it can't.. Why?.. The term MPEG covers more than just a file type; it also defines audio and video compression methods.. Perian allows playback of these audio and video compression techniques, but it does not allow the ability to open the MPEG file format.. This is due to limitations within QuickTime itself, and we cannot solve it until Apple designs a better interface.. See.. our rdar.. on the subject.. Will there be a version of Perian for the iPhone?.. Unfortunately no, the iPhone does not have QuickTime.. Since Perian is a third party component for QuickTime, we would need the iPhone to have QuickTime before we could get Perian onto the iPhone.. What if QuickTime for the iPhone ends up in a future update?.. We are concerned that the iPhone, while a great device, is just too slow to play the type of files that you would use Perian to play.. I submitted a bug report and I was told it was fixed in SVN; what does this mean?.. SVN refers to the system which the developers use to store the source code that makes Perian.. If an issue has been fixed in SVN, then that means the developers have tracked down the issue, and believes it to be fixed.. At this stage, it requires further testing after which it will be included in the next release.. Copyright 2006-2012 Perian Project.. All rights reserved..

  • Title: Perian - The swiss-army knife of QuickTime® components
    Descriptive info: The Tales of the Iceweasel.. Iceweasel: The Early Years.. The Iceweasel started life at an early age in a far away land.. Nobody knows where that land is, but we can guess.. It might have been Antarctica, Sweden, or even Kermit, Texas.. He travelled for years, living on nothing but ice and frozen water.. He caught miniscule fish for sustenance as well, but only for conversation.. One day he happened upon a shiny thing.. It was round, and flat.. With a circle in the middle.. When flipped over, it had the image of 2 silver bars laid on top of a black field.. And some characters foreign to him.. He could only translate the word "PANTHER" before things became problematic.. You see, the Iceweasel was in fact from the end of the ice age, the era before our own, When the Iceweasel pulled the "PANTHER" disc from the ice, he started a crack the size of.. well.. this was one big crack.. The  ...   crack thought to itself, "I want that Iceweasel! I'm Hungry!" It continued to follow the Iceweasel, almost catching him numerous times.. After many days and many close encounters, the crack stopped.. It could no longer continue to expand the land around it.. It has lost its energy and did not have a protein bar around to help it along.. The iceweasel now lives in northern California, leaving behind the result of the chase that is now known as "The Grand Canyon.. " What of the shiny, disc thing? That's as far away from the Iceweasel as possible.. Unfortunately, there are more discs out there, and whenever the Iceweasel sees them, the ground starts to shake.. The locals call these events "Earthquakes," but the Iceweasel knows they are really the crack coming after him again.. That is why "10.. 3 makes the Iceweasel cower in fear.. ".. Iceweasel and the Tiger.. Will be writing when the Iceweasel encounters a Tiger.. Copyright 2009-2012 Perian Project..
