Can Somebody Explain to Me what Perian is Used For?

Postby Kooler » Sun Apr 24, 2011 9:13 am

I was trying to view a movie I downloaded from Movie Maker. There was nothing but trouble on my MacBook Pro. I was hoping it would go as easy as the iTuns movie rentals go but it was a mess. I have QuickTime 10.0 and a lower version of QuickTim Player, not knowing what each one is responsible for. I know I sound retarded when it comes to this stuff like this, but I thought since the support told me to install Perian to view the movie, I did and I realized the next day there was an update. The update net OK, but it said something about a new folder would be installed too. I never saw the new folder, downloaded the Movie Maker movie but still out of all the programs I have that are supposed to play movies, still no movie plain. I am not even sure where I am supposed to be looking for the movie to ply.

If there is anybody out there who has a little empathy for novices who do not get this confusing topic of just wanting to play a rented movie, please stand up and help me.

thanks. which I could explain more but as far as the new folder it said it would install, I have no idea what they meant. I would just like to watch the movies. Certainly in this day and age it still can't be this difficult.

Don't create a new thread on the same topic; reply in the previous.
