Re: No audio from ADPCM codec.

We really need a sample of this file to diagnose this any further.

Re: The Devil's in the DivX

First it should be noted that AAC is already present in QuickTime as well as Pro Res Codec (which may be what you meant there). We have tracked down so many bugs related to the DivX components causing problems with Perian that we have decided we will never support anything that remotely involves the...

Re: Perian 1.2.2 Front Row black screen

I suspected as much. This still kills my use for a mini as a HTPC, as I had written a FrontRow plugin which won't work with these changes. I don't think that Apple sees any use for FrontRow/iTunes outside of iTMS. This is short-sighted given the ability to run EyeTV and make a DVR, run streaming ser...

Re: Perian 1.2.2 Front Row black screen

Unfortunately, the current technique is the best known way to composite that still functions in Frontrow. Given the rumors of it missing from the Lion builds, I'm afraid that Frontrow will not see any future development. It hasn't seen any in Snow Leopard (it's one of the few 32-bit only binaries in...

Re: Perian 1.2.2 Front Row black screen

the playback is extremely bumpy, the image pausing for a couple of seconds every 10 or so. Looks like the work around is not that efficient. Yes, which is why we have demanded that Apple fix it but they have consistently ignored us. What's the story on this 'FrontRow compositing bug' ? Frontrow doe...

Re: m4v and subs

We've answered this several times. It load external subtitles for file formats it reads. Perian doesn't read m4v, mp4, or mov files because QuickTime does that already, and does a better job than we can.

Re: Perian 1.2.2 Front Row black screen

That doesn't seem to be the entire output of mkvinfo (there's no audio track for example). We only really need the track info mentioned in QuickTime's GetInfo box. As an experiment, if you have QuickTime Pro, try opening the file in QT Player 7, turn off all tracks expect for the first video track a...

Did you restart FrontRow as asked when 1.2.2 is installed (hitting menu is not restarting it)?

Re: MPEG Stream Clip/Flip4

Perian is a QuickTime component. That means it is tied to QuickTime. That does not mean that everything QuickTime has to do with Perian. Everything you have mentioned thus far involving QuickTime are functions that are outside of Perian.

It has everything to do with Perian Simply saying this doesn't make it so. You failed to back up this claim with any evidence. You mentioned MPEG Stream Clip and Flip4Mac. You mentioned encoding. You mentioned DVD content. None of this has anything to do with Perian. how do you suggest I post and t...

Re: I can't remove/update Perian

That could mean there is something wrong with your system preferences. You can manually remove it by deleting it from Library/PreferencePanes (either the Library in your home directory or on your hard drive depending on whether it was installed just for you or all users).

Re: 1.2.2 Version - Stereo issues

The code in SVN worked with every file I tried. You did remember to restart to actually install the built component and restart the application, didn't you? In addition, if the file was a .mov file, you did re-correct the channel layout, right? If so, then could you provide a sample of the file in w...

Out of millions. That's hardly strong evidence.

Of course! I've done it several times over.

Re: Perian 1.2.2 on 10.6.7 - No Mountable File Systems

ISPs often insert proxies that attempt to be transparent between their users an the rest of the network. They also tend to not tell their users of this fact.
