Today I was fixing more issues with my Snow Leopard, and today I have found about this little piece of software, just 12kb, that will make you able to use Perian 1.1.4 (the MKV decoder for QuickTime 7) with QuickTime X.
A note before beginning: you can still have QuickTime 7 on Snow Leopard, you have to insert the Snow Leopard DVD, enter the folder for optional installations and start the installation for optional applications. Then, there, select QuickTime 7 and install it.
Back to QuickTime X. The use is very simple:
- Download it (it’s just 12kb)
- Extract it
- Place the file into the Applications folder
- Open your MKV file with this app
You can download it directly from here: Plugin for Perian and QT-X (49175)
I’m sorry that I don’t know whom to give credits.
