    Hi all,

    I'm using the Japanese-made m2tv tuner box (seen here: http://www.iodata.jp/product/av/tidegi/gv-mactv/ in Japanese), which supposedly stores the video in an mpeg-2 format. I want to get the video files into a format where I can play them in QT or MPlayerX, but have no idea how. They don't open in any video player I own, and the file names come up as 5748391079.5472 -type things. Although the files will play in the tuner box's own program, I want to be able to open them in a different player.

    Does anyone have any experience with this format?

    1. Purchase MPEG2 Playback Component from Apple.
    2. If you want to edit the video, then download free MPEG Streamclip and use it convert MPEG2 video to a format that most editors [and players] can handle.

    Have you tried the generic apple converter at godromo.com? I've used this free online converter a few times and has dealt successfully with anything I threw at it.

    They have a converter that will create file compatible with most apple products here
