Enables playback of Adobe Flash FLV video files within QuickLook. Requires the free QuickTime plugin Perian to be installed.

    Is there any way to preview SWF’s in quicklook. This would be huge!


  2. Gadiel Says:

    No go. The sound works, but not video. Did I mess up or is the file insufficient? Any help would be Captain Fantastic…

  3. adam Says:

    Agreed! Can only get sound 🙁

  4. Mike Says:

    This only plays audio. Any luck on video?

  5. Shaun Says:

    If you can only get the audio, then you probably don’t have the required Perian plugin installed (or correctly installed).

    Doesn’t work for me neither: No sound, no video. Any flv-file just shows the normal quicklook window for “not recognized filetype”. Bummer 🙁

    Doesn’t work anymore since latest QuickTime update…

    Found this on another site, open Terminal and enter:
    qlmanage -r

    This reloads all QuickLook plugin and thus reactivates flv plugin, too.

    Wow, the tip with qlmanage -r really worked.

    Thank you very much 🙂

    Install the package, then enter ‘qlmanage -r’ into the terminal, and it works! Creates thumbnails for flv files, and they can be viewed with video and sound in quicklook.

    (You might also need to set Quicktime as the default player for FLV files first – Get Info > Open With > Select ‘Quicktime Player’ > Change All – and update your copy of Perian, before you get it working.

    I’m running Mac OS 10.5.8 and have Perian 1.2 installed but for some reason this plugin does not work at all. I even did the whole “Get Info > Open With > Select ‘Quicktime Player’ > Change All – and update your copy of Perian” first. Any suggestions?
