Perian quicktime component for Apple TV

Some new info about the Apple TV Hacks:

The software used to allow the Apple TV to play other video formats is called Perian. This means that the Apple TV can potentially play all of these formats: MS-MPEG4 v1, MS-MPEG4 v2, MS-MPEG4 v3, DivX 3.11 alpha, DivX, XviD, 3ivX, MPEG4 video, H.264, Sorenson H.263, Flash Screen Video, Truemotion VP6, WMV, VBR MP3, AAC, and AC3 Audio

The goal of the Perian Project is to build a QuickTime component wrapper for the libraries produced for OS X. Perian enables QuickTime-based playback tools access to more file formats and codecs.
