I have tried everything I can think of, here's my situation... I am opening up DVDs on MPEG Streamclip on a PC, I segment the clips into several sections and save them as MPEGs. I then copy these clips on an FAT32 external hard drive and play them out on a G5 using MPEG Streamclip this is when I covert the video to a .mov and use it in FCP. Basically I am digitally ripping Family Guy Season 3, segmenting each DVD so I can have a catalog of Family Guy episodes to edit with. Before you say anything, I have full consent from Fox to use their footage in these clips. My PC looks completely fine when I segment all the episodes. But when I open them up on the Mac they turn very pixelated, the audio is fine. I have tried several programs with different codecs and it looks like that the MPEG Component for QT is causing the issue. Disk 1 of Family Guy is fine but Disk 2 has this problem....weird.... Is there anyway I can use a different MPEG codec for MPEG Streamclip? Can I some how fix the files so they work on the Mac? Any suggestions would be great, I am about to go crazy!
