Add AVI MKV or other file formats into iTunes


The simplest way to add basically any file format into iTunes is to make sure you have the developer tools installed (it comes with your Mac OS X cd) and just go to the directory of your movie/audio files and do this (in this example I’ve gone into the directory where I have a ton of MKV files):

SetFile -t “MooV” -c “TVOD” *.mkv   

Then Mac OS X will identify the files as Quicktime movies. Other than that, nothing has changed, it’s still MKV files, we still need Perian installed to play the files/be able to use the codecs.…
