Playing MKV files. Freeware players that support MKV natively: Videolan VLC is a free and very good player for Windows, Mac and Linux that supports MKV directly. MPlayer is another free player with MKV support. CCCP is a free codec pack for Windows that will enable MKV playback in Windows Media Player and all other DirectShow-based players. Either way, congrats, you just converted an MKV video file to an MP4 video file and you didn’t have to buy anything, just download a copy of the open source VLC program. Pro Tip: I’ve been writing about the Mac system for years and have a massive library of Mac help and tips for you to explore. Please do take the time to check. Method 3: Install QuickTime plugin on Mac to view MKV (optional) If you are hellbent to use QuickTime as the default player on your Mac, and want to play MKV without issue, you can still do so by installing an appropriate codec pack or plug-in on your system.
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.
There are many different combinations of Photoshop Elements (PSE) and the Operating Systems (OS) it is supported on. Just because a platform is 'unsupported' does not necessarily mean that it will not work. Here is a table to help identify which versions of PSE are supported on which versions of Windows and Macintosh. By 'supported', we mean that the application is designed and thoroughly tested to work on.
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.
