Perian 1.1 Released
Thursday, February 7, 2008 - 6:02 PM EST
Posted by: Brian

The Perian team has announced the release of Perian 1.1, a free QuickTime component that adds native support for many popular video formats. With Perian installed, any OS X application that uses QuickTime can now use these additional media types: AVI, FLV, MKV, MS-MPEG4 v1 & v2, DivX, 3ivX, H.264, FLV1, FSV1, VP6, H263I, VP3, HuffYUV, FFVHuff, MPEG1 & MPEG2 Video, Fraps, Windows Media Audio v1 & v2, Flash ADPCM, Xiph Vorbis (in Matroska), MPEG Layer II Audio and more. This can be a big help with playing videos in Front Row, for example.

New features and improvements in Perian 1.1 include:

  Major performance improvements

  TrueAudio, MP1, and DTS audio support

  Slice-based multithreaded decoding for MPEG-1/2/H.264

  Apple H.264 now handles AVCHD/interlaced video

  Compatibility fixes for QuickTime 7.4 and Leopard

  Objective-C GC compatibility

  Fixed a crash in Toast

  Better subtitle rendering

  Subtitles play during MKV loading

  Snow support

  Miscellaneous bug fixes

Perian 1.1 requires Mac OS X 10.4.7 or later. The download (direct link) weighs in at 2.6MB.
