    search for SUPER in google and get the one not from the SUPER website, the download link on their site is soooo hard to find.

    afaik you can use "HandBrake" to convert the file

    i believe you can also try iMovie

    Recently I recieved some .MOD files that I think were actually mpeg 2 that were created on a PC. I was able to convert them to Mp4 and import into iMovie with Video Monkey. This is the open source program that replaced Visual Hub after developers ceased development. Give it a try and let me know it you were successful. The setting I used was for Apple TV.

    Don't you need Mpeg2 QT component to be able to play mpeg2 with Streamclip. I can not with SL.
    BTW Toast 10 has rather good mpeg2 decoder independent from QT. So do some other apps.
