    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?

    Thanks.

    Simple:
    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
