Question about Apple QuickTime VR Authoring Studio 1.0

Can't play certain types of mpg files on my new mac

I just made the switch from PC to Mac and I download movies (mpg and mpeg files) from LimeWire. A lot of them won't open. I get an error message saying "QuickTime can't open this - it's not a Movie file". I installed Perian in the hopes that this would allow me to play other types of movies, but I guess I don't know how to use Perian. I almost never had this issue when I had a PC. What am I doing wrong?

    Well I made the switch from Mac to PC too and I'm not complaining but my Quicktime plays every single video file except the ones downloaded directly from my Sony DCR-SR62 camcorder to my Macbook. It says the same thing that michael_brea's macbook. By the way the movie files are MPEG, doesn't specify 1 or 2 either. Would appreciate the help a lot.

You may want to check out VLC Media Player. It is cross platform, open source and plays a greater variety of formats than quicktime (including MPEG 1 and 2); plus it is free. I highly recommend for troublesome media files.
Here's the link to the VLC webpage:  http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
For help with the Sony DCR-SR62 I found two links on the apple support site that detail how to get the camera to work with your mac. It appears that your camera is not fully compatible with the mac however you should be able to get the video to work if you import through imovie and follow some of the workarounds detailed in the links below.

Sony Vegas Movie studio 8.0 - I put in pictures, video and music, but only the music plays. No video or photos appear when I play the video


Because Sony Vegas support WMV, MPG (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4), MP4, MOV, ASF, SWF, FLV, etc. It doesn't support .avi format. So I want to know your video files format.

If ur video file format is .avi format or other video format that Sony Vegas doesn't support. We need convert AVI files into WMV, MPG, MP4, MOV supported by Sony Vegas. AVI to Sony Vegas is a good solution to import AVI to Sony Vegas for editing.

Video Converter Platinum is the most advanced AVI to Sony Vegas Converter software which can convert HD videos (inc.HD TS, HD MPG, HD MPEG, HD MP4, HD AVI), TOD, MOD, MTS, AVI (DivX, Xvid, etc.), QuickTime Video, 3GP, VOB, etc to Sony Vegas.

Playing video


There are literally hundreds of audio and video codecs out there,
not to mention the dozens of possible media containers
(file-formats) to hold and synchronize the audio and video
streams in a movie.

1) The first step is to identify the codecs and container interfaces
needed to play each file.

2) Download a copy of the G-SPOT codec information
appliance from:

http://gspot.headbands.com/

3) Use this awesome tool to identify the codecs and container,

then download the correct codecs.

You can also test/play the movie from within GSPot.

4) Finally, keep in mind that media from P2P downloads
is often corrupt (or worse) which may be the reason
the audio does not work. The file type could also be
mislabeled or have the wrong extension.

5) I recomend emule over lime wire, with an inter-connected
VLC player. The VLC player is very good at playing
incomplete or damaged movies and audio. (it is free)

6) Finally, when downloading movies, alway DL more than
one version at the same time, hoping one will work.

prefer larger files for better quality, and avoid small files
like the plague because the are often malware.

A movie should be at least 5 MB per minute. Anything
smaller than that is highly suspect.
most formats, except real-media.

Hope this helps

ERROR IN MOVIE WIZARD


Not sure what it means, but I found a way around it.

I get the same error when I try to burn a WMV (Windows Media Video) file to a DVD.

As a work-around, I converted the file to a MPG (MPEG-2) file. That took the size from 41 Mb to 357 Mb.

I was then able to burn the MPG file to a DVD successfully.

If you still have trouble, I would suggest creating an ISO image of the MPG file. That takes the size from 357 Mb to 508 Mb. You should then be able to create a DVD directly from the image file.

Good luck!
