Perian's Type Installer (was PerianAddFile) patches QuickTime Player's Info.plist file to automatically handle Perian filetypes and give them appropriate icons.

What's New

Version 2.4.3_TigerFixed:
  • Added srt "document" icon*
  • Now if QuickTime Player was not running before the launch of Perian's Type Installer, on quit, it will be closed.
  • Recompiled for Tiger support
*I know that srt files can't be opened directly with QuickTime Player, however I think that these files should have a nice icon too.
