Perian updated to 1.2.3, fixes several 1.2.2 bugs

Perian, a plugin that vastly expands QuickTime's suite of supported video codecs, has been updated to 1.2.3. The Perian 1.2.2 update released in April apparently introduced a fair number of new bugs, and 1.2.3 is essentially a bugfix release designed to squash them.

While Perian said 1.2.2 would be the last version to support pre-10.6 versions of Mac OS X, the system requirements for 1.2.3 still state that Mac OS X 10.4.7 and above are supported. The update includes the following bug fixes:

  • Some Fraps videos only displayed black.
  • Workaround checks for Front Row stopped being effective.
  • Fixed compatibility with web video playback.
  • Worked around System Preferences crashing during an update on 10.6.
  • Further fixes to Matroska import.

The update is just under 4 MB, and you can either download it from Perian's site or check for updates from the Perian prefpane in System Preferences.
