Is there a QT MPEG2 componet out yet or a easier workaround for this problem?? I need to run Mpeg2 nativley.
Most people use the direct camcorder import option built into Apple's video editing apps (assuming the camcorder is compatible/recoggnized by the app). For instance, iMovie will import MPEG-2 video by expanding the P- and B-frames to all I-frame video—essentially turing the spatial GOP content to frame editable Motion MPEG temporal video. It also converts the non-editable AC3 audio to Linear PCM (AIFF) and merges it with the video in an MOV file container with start/end time track offsets to minimize the possibility of A/V sync problems. Once, imported in this manner, the files are edit compatible with all QT based computer apps (e.g., QT 7 Pro, QT X, GarageBand, MPEG Streamclip, etc.) on systems with recent versions of iMovie installed.
