it doesn't make sense to have a P when the slogan says/should be "Perian - The Swiss Army knife of Quicktime components." Just leave it as is. making it more aqua will take away from it's uniqueness.

i don't follow... why doesn't it make sense, P for Perian instead of Q for Quicktime?

slogan mentions the name quicktime, quicktime has a logo which is the Q, the swiss army knife is composed of various components just like perian is. you don't need to add or show the letter of the name of your product to the logo.

We can't mention the name quicktime in the slogan due to trademarks.

but it is a quicktime component,
lots of people do it:
coverbuddy: "Don’t let iTunes™ play alone, everyone needs a buddy!"
iVIdeo: "iVideo is to movies as iPhoto is to pictures and iTunes is to music."
WikityWidget: "You can think of it as StickyNotes on steroids"
the list goes on...

A QuickTime with a TM on it is what we're going to go with for now.

I love that icon and the site design.
I'm... kinda tired... I think I'll go home now.

i noticed that the title of the site reads "Perian - A swiss-army knife for QuickTime" while it should be "Perian - The swiss-army knife of QuickTime"
BTW, i think the actual codec's icon should be changed to include the symbol.

I was setting everything to "for" because it's for QuickTime. I'm waiting for a response from the owlboy in order to get the image changed, or until I get home to change it.
