    I am new to this forum so I apologize for any demonstration of ignorance in its use. Everyone here seems to know what they are doing. I just got a new macbook pro and have run into a couple of problems. 1. I have a sony HD handy cam that has always worked well with playback however when I went to run it on my Mac. It records in AVCHD. When I go to download the videos into my Mac they show as Jpegs. 2. I have been trying to find something that will allow me to play different movie formats on the Mac. Just got some that are .AVI but they won't play. I tried flip4mac, but it does not give me that as an option when it prompts me "open with".

    Any help from you all would be great.

    Download Perian. It will let you play just about any type of video file with Quicktime.

    Can't help with your AVCHD files I'm afraid.
