    importing video
    I am having trouble watching video from my Sony Handycam (format is MPG) to my Macbook pro (version 10.6.4). From what I read all video is played using quicktime player which will not read MPG format. I am able to import video in MPG format but I am unable to convert MPG to a format the quicktime player can read!! Anybody have any suggestions or comments?

    I suggest you download MPEG Streamclip and use it in conjunction with QT.

    have you tried playing it with the VLC player? it can handle pretty much anything you throw at it.

    MPEG Streamclip is a good converter, and i prefer it to FCP in alot of circumstances too.

    I saw on here were some ppl were using handbreak and I downloaded that and converting them from MPG to M4v and saving them on Itunes. I think this is working for me

    Get MPEG Streamclip, choose Demux from the File menu. Demux it to the first option, I think it's m2v and aif or something like that. This will separate the audio and video. Then, with the audio and video files in the same folder location, open the m2v with Quicktime Player. Then Save As or Export as a Quicktime movie.
