Quicktime should be able to play MPG files no problem..however if it's complaining still, then install Perian - The swiss-army knife of QuickTime components and that should get you going..

Thx for the tip.
It goes for a few mpeg movies, but I still got some movies who wont work with that.
Could it be it depends on wich codec I use?

(mayby important to note: those mpeg movies were made a few years ago on a windows system) (man am I happy I don't have to use those systems anymore... :d )

Also make sure you have Flip4Mac installed.

Then grab everyone's favorite standby player no matter which OS you're using, VLC.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
