    Hi,

    (I did search before creating this thread!)

    Well today I received a SVCD, but I have know means of playing it. I navigated through the SVCD to the MPG file, but I cannot play it because I do not have the MPEG2 plug in for Quicktime, and don't really want to pay for it!
    I tried opening the MPG file with Quicktime, VLC and MPlayer and none worked. I also searched VersionTracker for a converting program but I wasn't really sure what I needed because all the programs mentioned creating SVCD but not getting the video off of them.
    Does anyone know of any good software to convert MPEG2 to .mov etc..
    I tried FFmpeg, but it wouldn't work could this be because I don't have the Quicktime Mpeg2 plug in?

    Thanks for any help.

    Try drag and dropping the actual svcd icon onto vlc, not the mpg file within.

    thanks for the help on converting the mpeg2 file, but I really want to convert the file to .mov or something which is easier to play.
