    Perian plug-in for QuickTime to be discontinued

    Source: perian.org (via CNet)

    We began the Perian project over 6 years ago. We wanted to simplify viewing your content. Our team has attained that goal and with that in mind, Perian will be retired soon. Our stewardship has been a blast but it's time for all of us to move on.

    From the beginning we kept Perian simple. Our preferences were minimal, updating was easy, and we gradually grew the product to add in extras like subtitles and different formats. We've contributed a lot. Today, Perian stands as complete as it ever will be under our stewardship.

    There are some projects that we never got to. As an example, we would have liked an official, flexible, and well-documented import API to speed up MKV. We hit a brick wall there. Still, we reached a great stopping point and Perian's installed userbase proves how valuable this tool became to so many people.

    Starting 90 days after the final Perian release, we will no longer provide support. We'll wrap up our loose ends, pack up our bags, and move on to new and exciting projects.

    Here's what our roadmap looks like:

    • We will soon release the final version of Perian, including all the fixes we've worked on since the last release. It may -- or may not -- work on 10.8.
    • We will post the source code to either Google Code or Github.

    Perian plug-in

    Thank you VERY MUCH for a fantastic product!!!
    I've used the Perian plug-in for as long as I can remember! It has become a key install for all images and personal use. It will be highly missed but you and your team has certainly helped ease everyones video needs for a good while :-)

    Thanks again for the AWESOME product!!!!!
