Why MKV no Sound on Mac?

Well, MKV is not a native format supported by Mac QuickTime player and theoretically, MKV can not be opened on Mac computers. But some available QuickTime components, such as Perian, have made opening MKV on Mac computers a possibility. However, Perian can only change the MKV format to another format, but can not change the MKV wrapped audio codecs. For some MKV files, they contain Dolby-AC3 or DTS audio codecs which are not supported by Mac QuickTime players even after using Perian adjusting the MKV format to Mac supported MOV format. What is worse is that the QuickTime Components can not work in a stable mode and in many occasions, they can not complete their work. For example, Perian technical team will no longer provide support to Perian after final Perian version release.
