Posted by: Glenn

The Perian team has announced the release of Perian 1.1.4, a major update to their QuickTime component that adds native support for many popular video formats. According to the release notes, this update includes the following fixes and improvements:

  Forced VobSub subtitles are imported into a separate track

  Added initial DTS passthrough via similar mechanisms as AC3

  Support old ffmpeg-generated MKV files with no enabled tracks

  10.6-compatible preference pane

  Fixed "Load External Subtitles" checkbox

  Fixed crash/freeze when loading broken VobSub subtitles

  Fixed import of uncompressed audio in FLV

  Fixed import of some audio tracks; should improve iApps

  Fixed CRAM codec AVI in browsers

  Worked around bug in iChat codec loading

  Never allows Apple's code to handle AC3 data anymore so passthrough works more often

  Doesn't try to decode some RGB colorspaces (such as in Camtasia) that aren't supported

  Fixed some 16-bit RGB codecs on Intel

  Fixed importing movie files with no video tracks

  Fixed H264 crash in put_h264_qpel8_h_lowpass_l2_ssse3 (in FFmpeg)

  Fixed crash with corrupt first frame

  Fixed BMP/RLE in AVI

  Fixed several memory leaks

  Fixed a problem with wrong channel order in DTS 5

  Fixed possible conflict with UniversalDetector.framework

  Fixed garbage characters appearing at the end of a line with some fonts

  Better handling of invalid SSA files

  Fixed rendering of multi-layer subtitles

  Fixed SRT files using ',' for decimals

  Ignored SSA shapes and \blur instead of misparsing them

  Disabled vertical font support again to fix files wrongly using it for Latin text

  Fixed subtitles in MKV wrongly displaying at the end of a video

  Better handling of \move and \org

  Compilation under 10.4 is no longer supported

  A52Codec has been deprecated and will be replaced by an LGPL decoder in a future release

Perian 1.1.4 weighs in at 3.6MB and requires Mac OS X 10.4.7 or later.
