    so, vlc open it with no problems

    but quick time needs this extra component?

    i've converted a short pice of the long movie via
    visual-hub, and quicktime did open the mpg2.
    so maybe I'm doing something wrong with the
    settings in the compressor?

    Protip: when you convert MPEG2 to another format the resulting file is not MPEG2.
