FRAPS captured video no longer works with 1.2.2

Post by russpond »

My son uses FRAPS (http://fraps.com) to capture his screen during gameplay. With version 1.2.1, we were able to open and play the FRAPS created videos. But, when I upgraded to 1.2.2, I was no longer able to play the FRAPS encoded videos. I downgraded to 1.2.1, and it's working again.

I just wanted to post this and let you know.

I can confirm this as I had the same problem. Please Perian, fix Fraps integration! The problem is the audio will play in quicktime but not the video (just a black screen) and then when you load the footage in final cut the viewer will show a red screen with white text saying "codec could not be opened".

The way to roll back your software so it will work again:
1. Go to the Perian system preferences pane
2. Click remove
3. Click 'Show All'
4. Control-click the Perian pane and 'Remove "Perian" Preference Pane.'
5. Download the old version of Perian from: http://perian.cachefly.net/Perian_1.2.1.dmg
6. Install by following the instructions
7. Start using Perian! (but make sure to click the "Skip version" option when the update box pops up

Hope this guide helps someone!

Reason: Fix the url to point to the correct download location, and not some skank website

Don't do these steps; it won't accomplish anything. Just follow the steps that's been on the Perian website for years.

4. In AppCleaner click "Others"
5. Click the magnifying glass icon and search "Perian"
6. Check off the result and click "Search"
7. This should rotate the app and show two or so files. In the bottom right corner of this screen click "Delete"

I just wrote the steps I took, as they worked for me. I have now updated my 'guide' to reflect the instructions on the site.

Please use http://perian.cachefly.net/Perian_1.2.1.dmg as a download URL. It's the official one, so it will stay up and eliminates the chance of super-hackers stealing your computer.

Ah yes I just found that out. The updated steps can be found in this short video tutorial I made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qI2Y8MGREDw&sns=em
