when I try to reencode h264 source to x264 with codec or quicktime, it really slow ?! Can the avcdecoder could help more speed encode x264 ? Nice work for x264Encoder !!!

The avc1 decoder ( version 0.7.6 and 0.8.1) both still play H.264 way better than the recent Perian plugin, way less stuttering during pan-scenes. But since the Perian project you have discontinued this plugin... Any chance you could write a new version of this plugin ? I prefer this one to Perian, but it does causes QT crashes avery now and then.

Should this be used instead of Perian and Flip4Mac or in addition to those two Sys.Preferences?

avc1Decoder 0.6.7 is safe. Some apps like Toast and mp4vDecoder has some compatibility issue same as Perian 1.0.

I have confirmed Toast 8.0.3 now compatible with mp4vDecoder. And, avc1Decoder also does not have any issue with Toast 8.0.3. Please Update if you can.

No chance of adding subtitle support (to this or the mpv4decoder) is there? Perian is delaying their release until December, so other options would be nice... In any case, great work (encoders too)!

avc1Decoder runs on H.264 media only under mov and mp4 file. It also has postprocessing filter and color adjustment feature. Perian runs many media type, but does not have postprocessing filter nor color adjustment. You can install both.

Perian is not for h264… avc decodec allow read all h264 and mp4 what integer apple decodec not do (b frames, 8x8, etc…). ps: if you try avc.decodec, no need mp4.decodec, avc.decodec decode mp4 and h264…

MPEG-4 AVC does not include MPEG-4 ASP/SP. AVC is called as "H.264". ASP or SP are generally called as "MPEG-4". avc1Decoder just handles H.264 media only. mp4vDecoder handles ASP/SP media only.
