How To Solve Mac Video Playing Problems

A few weeks ago I complained about the state of Video Players For The Mac (and Windows) but have come across a solution today. Perian is a free, open source plugin for QuickTime that adds native support for practically every video and audio format!
Perian enables QuickTime application support for additional Media Types:
  • AVI, FLV, and MKV file formats
  • MS-MPEG4 v1 & v2, DivX, 3ivX, H.264, FLV1, FSV1, VP6, H263I, VP3, HuffYUV, FFVHuff, MPEG1 & MPEG2 Video, Fraps, Windows Media Audio v1 & v2, Flash ADPCM, Xiph Vorbis (in Matroska), MPEG Layer II Audio
  • AVI support for: AAC, AC3 Audio, H.264, MPEG4, and VBR MP3
  • Subtitle support for SSA and SRT
Just download it, unpack it, double click, and reboot. That's all there is too it!
