Free games for macbook pro. 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. The solution to this problem for me was to uninstall Perian v 1.1.3 and then download and install Perian v 1.1.2. The exact steps: 1 ) go to system preferences 2 ) select “Perian” from your “other” section at the bottom 3 ) in the “General” tab, click “Remove Perian” 4 ) Click here to download Perian v 1.1.2.
Perian Editor's ReviewPerian is an Open Source plugin for QuickTime, which enables the playback of other video formats.
QuickTime is not the only player that can use this plugin. Any other video player that uses a QuickTime module for displaying the video material can load this package.
By installing this package you can get support for codecs like Microsoft MPEG 4, versions 1, 2 and 3, as well as getting support for other MPEG 4 subset implementations such as DivX 3.11, DivX, XviD, 3ivX, MPEG4 video, H.264, Sorenson H.263, Flash Screen Video, Truemotion VP6, WMV, VBR MP3, AAC and AC3 Audio. As you can see, the supported list is quite decent.
Almost every format from the supported list can be decoded into a raw format too. The exceptions are WMV, VBR MP3, AAC, and AC3 Audio. In order to use two of these audio codecs properly, you have to install some additional packages. WMV requires Flip4Mac and AC3 requires A52 codec.
The supported containers are AVI and FLV. PCM/ADPCM and Flash Screen Video v2 are not supported within the FLV container.
Pluses: by using this plugin you can get easy access to a decent list of video encodings that are not supported by QuickTime. The Perian plugin comes as a part of the Democracy video player, so you have an alternative installation choice.
Drawbacks / flaws:
In conclusion: this package is very useful for the people who are using a lot of video file encoding types and they don't want to limit themselves to the Apple's container, MOV, and its supported encodings.
