Question about Apple QuickTime VR Authoring Studio 1.0
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?
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.
Hope this helps

If you want the best player get realplayer it plays a lot of different formats and will update when needed . you don't have to get the paid one just get the free one. I'm totally satisfied
God Bless Greg
