    Just purchased one of these and installed the FlipShare software. I am getting very choppy playback on my computer using the software/iTunes/Quicktime. Flip support has told me that my iMac processor (2.1 Ghz PowerPC G5) is not adequate for streaming playback of the videos (.MP4) and that I need an Intel Core Duo chip.

    Is there any way around buying a new computer to get quality playback of my videos? Thanks in advance, a bit of a Lehman when it comes to these things.

    I believe I recall seeing a post stating that Toast 9 could convert the files into an editable format that will work on PPC Macs.

    Is there anything available for free that can convert the files to something that will not experience the choppy playback issues?

    I had a similar question just a little while ago and FCP.guru.guy steered me to MPEG Streamclip at http://www.squared5.com/ ... Not sure if that will do it for you but it's free and worth a shot....
