Next time, install Perian's Type Instal... with 1-click

Learn how MacUpdate Desktop can install apps on MacUpdate with the simple click of the Install apps with MacUpdate Desktop icon. Plus, keep all your apps updated.

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.


Mac OS X 10.4 or later
