Colleagues at work who use Final Cut Pro tell me I should be able to open mp4 video files. When I try I get a notice on my desktop saying "a required codec is not available" .

When I then look at 'Additional media format support to QuickTime', I don't see mp4 files mentioned.  My 4 year old iMac has OS 10.7.5

Maybe I have to buy Final Cut Pro as I am thinking of learning to do editing too.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
