Perian unassoicated with MKV files

Post by neverminding »


I've noticed that MKV files newly downloaded or moved from their current location, lose their association with Perian (or vice versa).

These affected files return a kMDItemContentType = "dyn.ah62d4rv4ge804450" instead of "org.perian.matroska".

They still play fine in VLC, but spotlight and other apps no longer recognize them as kind:movie since the "" ItemKind is no longer being applied.

I've tried unisntalling and reinstalling Perian to no avail. Any ideas?
