is the size of the files still ok? ...means: big enough to be a video. I would give it a shot to just rename the extension to what it was before and try to play it.

But I haven't heard that files got renamed though and I have never had that problem. sounds really weird. Do you still have the sources on you macbook?

Do a Get Info on one of the files before changing the suffix, because they may be set to invisible. If they are, and the file is confused enough, you might end up with, for example, "My Movie.mov.jpg."

Yah, you don't really rename the extension though, if you just add .mov to the name and the extension is still .jpg

When I said change the extension I meant the actual file extension and for that it has to be visible. Thx for pointing that out!
