Does anyone know of an app that will convert a video from svcd to .mov?
Two choices that I know of: Buy the MPEG2 QuickTime component from Apple ($20) and then use QuickTime Pro (if you have it--another $30 if you don't) or any of the wide variety of Quicktime-based transcoding tools available through a search on VersionTracker.
Alternately, you can get your hands on a program that can transcode directly from MPEG2 (SVCD) to another format, and use that. FFMPEG is wonderful shareware that'll go from just about anything to just about anything, and there are likely others. Again, VersionTracker is your friend.
I've never been able to get QuickTime to read SVCDs (Pro version, with the MPEG component installed). It seems to have difficulty reading the discs (can't read XA Mode 2 tracks or something ).
The $20 Quicktime MPEG2 component plus freeware MPEG Streamclip should do it.
by the by I just paid for QT Pro hoping to cut up a .avi movie but it didnt recognise the format inside the avi. Bummer.
probably divx or xvid.. :-/
Install 3ivx and try again.
