It Slices, It Dices, It Cuts Through DivX

As an addendum to the previous post, Windows Media files are not the only video type that Quicktime can’t play without a little help. DivX and Xvid are also some other popular Internet video types that Quicktime can’t play. With the help of the swiss-army knife collection of Perian, Quicktime can play these video file types and more.

Perian is a free, open source QuickTime® component that adds native support for many popular video formats. Perian enables QuickTime® application support for additional media types including:
AVI and FLV, 3ivX, DivX, Flash Screen Video, MS-MPEG4, Sorenson H.263, Truemotion VP6, and Xvid.
AVI support for: AAC, AC3 Audio using A52Codec, H.264, MPEG4, and VBR MP3
