VLC and MPlayer have no trouble playing them under Leopard.
Here's the link to the problem child:
Will check back when 10.5 is official.
May i ask, will there be any fixes to perian, or any updates that are
coming soon to rectify the problem?
BTW, I just noticed that Apple's H.264 decoder is overriding us on
some mkv files. And it's still horribly slow to the point of
unusability on any given x264 encode.
Maybe we should rename ourselves 1111Perian.
If that'll help us not have this problem again, why not? :P

Perian is already loaded here, since it's MKV; I'm not sure if
changing the file name would stop QT from searching for another codec
when it already has the good one.

Now Leopard is out...
I had the same problem yesterday playing an MKV with H.264 video and
AAC audio. The video played fine (once it was loaded) but the audio
was missing. Quicktime offered to find an audio codec for me but I
stupidly dismissed the dialogue and the sound didn't play at all.
On a sidenote, does anyone know how to tell quicktime I didn't mean it
and get it to search for a codec again?
Similar files with Ac3 audio play fine as far as I can tell.
I don't know where to look for the problem.
ffmpegx also agrees that the files are indeed mpeg2 video and has no
problem converting them to Divx
Is my macmini too slow for leopard ? or is it a bug from leopard ?
