Re: subs in iTunes

QuickTime X doesn't use AV Foundation on 10.6; only the new iTunes does. It uses a transitional path which sort-of supports them (if you try to export the movies to some other format, you'll notice that doesn't work very well). There's nothing we can do on this side about VobSub. Requests for the ab...

We need a sample to investigate this. See the end of http://trac.perian.org/.

Re: OS X 10.7: Perian doesn't load subtitles in Quicktime X

Of course it can be solved! It worked on SL. SRT subs are not a video track, therefore, QTX can deal with it. The implementation of them in Perian involves one. QTX has other ways to display subtitles (I believe some iTunes movies have them), but their appearance is not as attractive as the existin...

Re: Subtitles on Quicktime

I can't reproduce this on 10.7. A 10.5-only problem would be annoying since I don't have the tools to rebuild a release for it at this point.

Does this happen with just avi+srt, or also with MKV with embedded subtitles?

Re: Upgraded to Lion and now Perian doesn't work

I don't see anything wrong with that list of installed codecs.

Can you post a sample from the AVI file? A clip of the first few MB of the file is fine.

Re: Upgraded to Lion and now Perian doesn't work

Uninstalling and reinstalling solves the issue of QTX forgetting about some file types after an OS reinstall. It doesn't solve anything else.

Re: Perian 1.2 Darkens TV Shows

The left side is too bright, not too dark. That seems to be a different problem than was originally mentioned.

Please post a sample from the mkv file (using the dd command from http://libav.org/bugreports.html).

Re: FRAPS black levels crushed

I had one in http://trac.perian.org/ticket/570 too. I think we may fix this by outputting Fraps as RGB from the codec and converting ourselves. Unfortunately there wasn't any time for this in the current release, but the problem should only affect some versions of the Fraps codec… not sure if there'...

Re: FRAPS captured video no longer works with 1.2.2

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.

Re: Green Video in H264 mkv file

So you do get video in QT Player + Perian 1.2.2, but no video in iDVD? Does this file have subtitles?

The green frame makes me wonder if EyeTV is installed. We try to display black, not green, if there's an error. EyeTV installs another component which displays green.

Re: NO VIDEO WHEN TRYING TO PLAY AVI AND SRT FILES

This is probably the same cause as the Front Row problem in 1.2.2.

Try 1.2.1 as a workaround:

http://perian.cachefly.net/Perian_1.2.1.dmg

or investigate Handbrake. Or try a 10.5/10.6 machine.

Re: Does 1.2.2 work with FCP Now?

We have no idea, because everyone who encounters this problem with FCP disappears before we can ask them anything about it. It's easy to uninstall if you run into issues.

Huh, I forgot the compiler spec was broken in 3.2.6. Semi-fixed on trunk - the resulting build will work on G4 but not G3.
