Third party codecs on official QT page?

Postby John Don » Tue Nov 28, 2006 6:32 am

Does Perian incorporate all the codecs from the official QuickTime third-party component page?

http://www.apple.com/quicktime/resource ... nents.html

Reason I'm asking, I removed pretty much all of my codecs once I installed Perian, and a few days ago one of my movies said the codec necessary to play it was missing. It then sent me to the above page. Before I removed them, I had all the codecs that are listed on the above page, and all my movies played without fail.
I'm... kinda tired... I think I'll go home now.

This page might help: http://trac.perian.org/wiki/SupportedFormats

It says flip4mac and A52Codec aren't covered in perian.

How does "can decode" differ from "playable"? In the case of AC3 audio imbedded in an AVI, A52Codec is definitely necessary at present.

That page could be clearer. I also want to create pages for each of the devs that state what components we do have installed to give a sort of baseline of what is needed.

Can decode means that perian does the decoding. Playable means that perian sets up what is necessary for another codec to decode. Can in point: AC3 audio. Perian detects AC3 audio within an AVI file and does the necessary setup so that QuickTime will properly start up the AC3 decoder so that it plays.
