It seems to me to be related to the unavailability of the server on which perian checks its version. When I manually checked for updates the control panel hung like quicktime did when I tried to play a video. Hanging has nothing to do with the server. The update checks is done by a separate app ins...

You are confusing mpeg audio and video with the mpeg file format. See this ticket for the status of the file format reading (which isn't supported)

The firewave won't work for his purposes. He wants to take 5.1 AAC and be able to play it with his decoder. From the site's FAQ Does the FireWave feature digital coax or optical outputs? No. So, this doesn't fit the bill for what he wants. His best shot is do use AC-3 Passthrough on handbrake (eithe...

OK, I am getting these too. It seems to be a bug with Quicktime. I have reported it as bug ID 5594478 with Apple. Feel free to do the same and hope they fix it.

Is this a .ac3 file or some other kind of file with ac3 audio in it?

No. Perian includes playback only, no encoding. We do this to avoid the sue-happy people out there.

If there were, we would certainly say so. This could entirely be a bug with Frontrow. We have filed a report with Apple and so far have received no response.

If I understand this correctly, you opened a .flv in FCP, modified the video to burn subtitles into it, and then exported the video using the MPEG4 compressor. In such a case, perian's job ended the moment FCP finished reading the flv file. Perian does nothing in terms of file encoding. The mention ...

I did answer you. We will not discuss it until it is released here, which is more than 10 hours after you post.

Perian's goal is to use several libraries to support its codecs. Currently, we are only using three libraries, libmatroska, libavformat, and libavcodec, but this list can grow if we find a more suitable library for a given task. The latter two are part of the ffmpeg library, which contains the work ...

Just to clarify, you need your audio set to the same sample rate as the AC3 audio (most is 48KHz). You need the output set to 2 channel, 16 bit, and the passthrough key enabled. Passthrough doesn't work with all decoders. If you hear a single click, and then silence, chances are you don't have a dec...

I assume you tried dropping the .ac3 file into Keynote and it failed?

If that is the case, try opening it in QuickTime Player, and then save as a quicktime movie. It will still have the AC3 audio, but be in a .mov. Maybe that will work.

Perian doesn't handle any .mp4 (or m4v, m4a), because Quicktime can already handle these. Most likely, you have a file which doesn't conform to the standard or apple just doesn't like in one for or another.
