    Can't play MVI_####.MOV video clips
    I've recently moved to a Macbook Pro and took my Canon still camera video clips along on an external hard drive. They look like "MVI_1234.MOV" and won't play using Quicktime. These are short video clips. I've read there are codecs that I'd have to pay good money to download to convert these to something playable. I'm leary that would work, though I'd pay if there were no other way.
    Strangely, when searching this forum for "MVI" nothing registered? Much appreciated if anyone can help. I'd hate to lose these video clips.

    VLC should be able to play them, and if you need to convert them I think Handbrake can do it.
