Hi all, i downloaded a mpg file of the 07 NCAA final but when I go to run it I get an error :blind: . Do I need to convert the mpg file to avi? And if so how do I do this? It seems more and more files are now mpg and I can't play these sort of files. Any help at all would be great. p.s. I dont know the result from the game so dont tell me. :bone:

Cheers,
Irish

If you drag it onto your iMovie icon in the Dock does iMovie import it?

I haven't tried this yet. I'll try when I get home. I can play all other file types like mpeg, avi, divx, etc....it just seems mpg wont play I think I read somewhere they are mpg3 files or something?

I got the file working. I changed the extension from .mpg to .mpeg and then opened it with VLC player. Thanks for the suggestions.
