I was not sure where to psot this, but I guess this should work...

My boss has this little Memorex "7 in 1" thing (MCC228RSBLK). It shoots HD video, which is why he bought it.

He spent a weekend recording some video of his kids, and he wants me to edit it together with FCP.

No problem, right? Wrong.

I grabbed all the video files, and when opened in QT Pro, they are black. I hit Command+I to see the info, and it tells me it is "H264" format, which Quicktime ought to be able to handle.

VLC plays the video fine, but with no sound.

When I try exporting out of Quicktime to .MOV, it gives me an all white screen!

When I bring it into FCP, it displays nothing at all.

I tried looking it up on the internet, and it is as if this product does not exist...


Any ideas?

Yessss

You, Sir, saved my butt today.

I was about ready to screen capture VLC playing the video, then match it up with the audio the Quicktime files would play.

Perian it was!

Thanks sooo much, and have a good one.
