    Works Great on Lion and Mountain - Requires Quick Time 7.6.6 - Not QT 10. .avi files now play in QuickTime 10.1 or later without any plugin or conversion. .wmv files require QuickTime 7.6.6 with Perian 1.2.3. Mac Perian works just fine in SL, Lion and ML. It's QT 10 that's the problem. Fortunately, QT 7.6.6 still works great. Trash QT 7.7 if found. Find the QuickTime 7.6.6 Installer in the More

    Has replaced Flip4Mac. Perian has replaced Flip4Mac on my MacBookAir and iMac. It has worked seamlessly, entirely in background. The best type of software; effective, efficient and unobtrusive. Pros: Effective, efficient and unobtrusive. Cons: Haven't found any yet.

    Not working with OS Lion. Since I updated to Mack OS 10.7 Lion, Perian hasn't worked. I get an error message that says I'm missing a codec. Any suggestions? I would really like to get it working - Perian is awesome!

    Perian. It's really useful and all that, but don't get angry if the file's type that you want to play is mp4, because Perian can't help you with that one!

    Perian. I Love it! People ask me all the time how they can play certain files on mac. I am still a newer mac user, so I always suggest to download another program, with Perian there is no need for an additional program. Pros: Only need Quicktime installed to play all major file types

The whole process was soooo easy, in Firefox I put in 'player for avi in macs. Went to the Perian option. Read up on the blurb..liked it and went on to Download. Tried out several movies and TV series and all played immediately in Quicktime with absolutely no pro More

    Install worked - still slow . Without Perian, Quicktime did not recognize MKV files. With Perian, MKV files were successfully opened. But the playback was still slow. Perhaps there is something more I need to do...I dont know any other way of successfully playing MKV files on a Mac. I've been searching...

    You need to drop the plugin in your Quicktime file. Perian is a plugin for quicktime that allows you to view other video formats. Once it is installed in your Quicktime file it will work.

    Perian. Stupid thing won't install. Some kind of "corrupt image" problem. Blah.
