    Unhappy Video files not recognised! Please help!
    Hello Guys

    Im currently making a music video DVD. However with being a long user of windows many of my files are .vob and with a simple codec windows would recognise them.

    However now ive transferred them to my macbook i can no longer play them nor add them to a dvd using iDVD.

    Is there any sort of codecs for the macbook? I have many gigs of video music in this format and really dont want to convert them all to make a DVD or to play them.

    Some sort of "codec" to install that would work with quicktime would be great.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers

    David

    Try installing Perian, which extends QuickTime's codecs beyond what Apple supplies

    Perian - The swiss-army knife of QuickTime® components

    For Windows Media up to version 9, install Flip4Mac

    Windows Media Components for QuickTime - Microsoft Windows

    However, iDVD may still not recognize them, but give it a try.

    If burning DVDs is your only requirement, then if Quicktime can play them after installing Perian, then the open source Burn should be able to burn them to DVD

    burn-osx.sourceforge.net

    Failing hat, VLC can play just about anything you throw at it

    www.videolan.org/vlc

    Myself, I seldom burn DVDs anymore, I prefer to play the movies in Quicktime and hook up the mac to the TV directly

    If you want to convert them for iMovie/iDVD, use MPEGStreamclip:
    Squared 5 - MPEG Streamclip video converter for Mac OS X
    and export to Quicktime using the Apple Intermediate Codec option.
