    Perian only works half the time
    i have a video clip in .avi format that doesnt want to play. when i open it, it says file format not supported even though i've watched it many times before. like i said, i have perian installed but it doesnt want to work. i have tried un-installing and reinstalling but that doesn't work. i could get vlc but i rather just have a quicktime plugin. any suggestions or advice is welcomed

    if perian is stumbling with the file there is a chance that your file may be corrupted. If you have access to the source of the file try replacing it and see if that works.

    Hope this helps
