Quick Look in Mavericks PARTIAL SOLUTION

It seems like there is an issue with Quick Look in Mavericks, even running in native machines. QL don't work with some QuickTime movies at all. Did you have this problem? Did you solve it? and, if the case, how did you do taht? Please, thanx.


EDITED PARTIAL SOLUTION
Whereas Apple solve this BUG, that it is what this is, I found that temporary solution. In Terminal, write this

qlmanage -p VIDEO

which VIDEO is any video file that you can preview in the system from you came on (Any: flv, m4v, divx, mov, avi, etc)

QuickLook will open that instantanely (don't ask me why)

Do you have Perian installed? If so, uninstall it. I was having problems, it turned out to be the Perian plugin.

I did that. After restart with the perian plugin and pref pane deleted, problem persist. Even, perian still working in Mavericks for me. I installed it again. So, thank you! I did some tests unistalling a couple of codecs (Cineform, DivX, x264...) and nothing happens. And, do you guys know if there is a 3thd party alternative for this? I really need to preview movies quickly. Thanx.
