    I have a few FLAC files that I'd like to be able to play in Quicktime. I found a component for Quicktime 7 that gives the ability to play FLAC files in Quicktime 7. I'm interested in seeing if I can somehow get component to also work in QuicktimeX. However, I can't find the QuicktimeX Component folder. Does anyone know where it's located, does it share the same one as Quicktime 7, or does QuicktimeX not support components?

    Thanks for the help

    QuickTime X does not support plugins, at least not at this point.

    However, the QuickTime X Player plays content using either the QuickTime X or the QuickTime 7 frameworks. So just put the plugin in place for QuickTime 7, and carry on.

    I've moved both of them, however, the file only plays in Quicktime 7. In QuicktimeX, it just tells me that
    "The document “FileName.flac” could not be opened. QuickTime Player cannot open files of this type."

    It's already installed.

    Edit: On a side note, as I was looking closer, "flac_import_0.5b1_p0.1.dmg" contains a patch. I'm not sure what to apply it to, or how to apply it. Not sure if that's making the difference.

    I only installed the files I mentioned in my first post, nothing else. What options do you see when you right click a flac file and got to open with?

    Quicktime 7 (Default) [Was added by me, I changed all FLAC files to open with Quicktime 7].
    Audacity
    VLC

    Doing an "Other" option, Quicktime X isn't able to be selected. If I choose All Programs, I get that message posted above, about the program not being able to open file "filename.flac".


    I actually have them installed in both places, because I simply thought that it couldn't hurt, but do you have the files installed in the user directory, or do you have it installed system wide?

    I installed the plugins system-wide.

    With Perian installed there should be a "Perian - Open in QT Player" item in the open with menu that opens flacs directly in QTX. Are you sure Perian is correctly installed? If I remove it from my system I get the same behaviour you are describing.

    Weirdest thing. I uninstalled Perian from the preferences panel, then I deleted the preferences link for it. I redownloaded it, and it now appears to be working. I swear I had it installed before. Maybe it has something to do with me now installing it system wide, or the fact that I installed it before Snow Leopard (And thus, before Quicktime X).

    But anyways, it works! Thanks for all the help!
