QuickTime supports hardware acceleration for some profiles of H.264; however, which profiles these are is not documented and may change on different Mac models. We do our best not to interfere, and some MKV files are known to work with hardware-accelerated decoding. Hello, I am trying to export a video clip I created in After Effects with the DXV 3 codec (DXV Codec - Resolume VJ Software) but it is not appearing in my list no matter which Preset I choose.Running MacOS High Sierra 10.13.2. I have searched online and have found few definitive answers, does this have to do at all with Apple dropping support for Quicktime?
If you’ve ever been a Windows user, than you have certainly encountered a few problems trying to play various video files. There are many available solutions for this problem, and many people use the popular K-Lite Codec Pack.
However, you should know that there is no K-Lite Codec Pack for Mac. So what do you do if you encounter this problem? Let’s discuss alternative solutions that you can use.
VLC Media Player is a very popular solution for Mac users, which eliminates the need to install any kind of codec packs for Mac. Although it won’t play every possible audio and video format, it will work with most popular formats including MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, AVI, DivX, MP3, MP4, WAV, FLV, FLAC, OGG, and many others. Of course, it will play DVDs and VCDs as well. VLC is definitely one of the best media players for Mac users, and its free.

NicePlayer is an interesting alternative to QuickTime. It works great, especially for playing movies, TV shows, and other videos. It works with Mountain Lion; however, it hasn’t been updated in a while, and we are not sure whether it will work with Mac OS X Mavericks.

MPlayerX is a simple, but beautiful player that will handle almost any media format you throw at it, without the need to install any extra plug-ins or codec packages. It will also detect and play most subtitle files, without too much hassle.

Perian is a codec pack for Mac, which enables you to play many video/audio formats using Apple’s QuickTime application. Although it has been a very popular solution for many years in the past – it is not supported anymore, and it won’t work with QuickTime 10 or later. However if you are using a previous version of QuickTime, feel free to install Perian.

As you can see, there are plenty of solutions if you encounter problems trying to play media on your Mac. Some will require you to install codecs and continue using QuickTime, while others are completely new applications. If you don’t know what to choose – we suggest going with VLC, as it is regularly updated and supported.
A notice to all of our users and supporters
We began the Perian project over 6 years ago. We wanted to simplify viewing your content. Our team has attained that goal and with that in mind, Perian will be retired soon. Our stewardship has been a blast but it's time for all of us to move on.
From the beginning we kept Perian simple. Our preferences were minimal, updating was easy, and we gradually grew the product to add in extras like subtitles and different formats. We've contributed a lot. Today, Perian stands as complete as it ever will be under our stewardship.
There are some projects that we never got to. As an example, we would have liked an official, flexible, and well-documented import API to speed up MKV. We hit a brick wall there. Still, we reached a great stopping point and Perian's installed userbase proves how valuable this tool became to so many people.
Quicktime For Mac Codec Packs
Starting 90 days after the final Perian release, we will no longer provide support. We'll wrap up our loose ends, pack up our bags, and move on to new and exciting projects.
Here's what our roadmap looks like:
- We will soon release the final version of Perian, including all the fixes we've worked on since the last release. It may -- or may not -- work on 10.8.
- We will post the source code to either Google Code or Github.
Here's what we're looking for from you, our users
