I'm having a problem with a several Quicktime mov files. It's footage a friend shot with his HDV camcorder and imported to an external hard drive using FCP. (He has a MacBook Pro or Powerbook, I have an aluminum MacBook.) After he captured it, we found the Quicktime mov files and copied them to my computer. I've tried watching/importing the footage with QuickTime Pro, MPEG Streamclip, iMovie '09, FCE and VLC player. VLC is the only application that plays both the sound and video. With everything else, I only hear sound. No picture. Quicktime says: "Additional software is required for QuickTime to playback this media. It may be available from the QuickTime Components page..." I've downloaded and installed almost all the codecs on that page...Still not working. MPEG Streamclip plays sound w/out video. iMovie 09 just won't import it FCE says "Codec could not be opened" Here's the file info for one of the files from "Get Info": Dimensions 1440x0180 Codecs: HDV 1080i60, Integer (Little Endian), Timecode Duration: 28:02 Channel count: 2 Total bit rate: 26,546 Does anyone have any suggestions about what to do next? What codec is it that is not supported by iMovie 09 or FCE? I need to be able to edit these video files in either iMovie HD, 09 or FCE. Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
