2.2.1 is for 10.3.9 but I can't find it anywhere. Perian is 10.4+ so no way for Panther. Sad

"Flip4Mac 2.2.1 erfordert mindestens MAc OS X 10.3.9 und QuickTime 7.0 und läuft sowohl auf PowerPC- als auch Intel-Macs. Der Download ist auf dieser Webseite zu finden."

other option could be installing this thing:®-codec-mac-os

Serials are only needed to export movies in wmv format and also, if I'm not mistaken, are still available for purchase.
