Mac OSX Must Have: Perian - Codecs for Quicktime

When I first got my MacBook Pro I was stoked. Everything was awesome, until I tried to watch/edit/do anything with video that I shot on my Casio Exlim digital camera. The camera shot video in a .AVI format, however it wasn't a 100% standard .AVI. I tore my hair out for hours. I cursed Macs. After a few days I had calmed down enough to starts the Internets... Then I found Perian, and I've never looked back.

FIOS installed, here is the speed test

I just got my Verizon FIOS Internet and Cable.

I went to and ran a test.

speed test results

That's 15,489 kb/s down and 13,601 kb/s up. I did test with my MacBook Pro over WiFi connect to the Verizon wireless G router. I should be getting 15 kb/s up, I'll have to test this with a wired connection later.

I'll blog about my experience with it more later.
