It has been a long time since this app has been updated so I am concerned for its future. However that is all the more reason to grab it now and keep it around--along with Quicktime 7.6.6, Perian and the old, free Flip4Mac plugin. I recently decided to go through my entire digital library of video files, some of which go back to the nineties. Many of these files used codecs that are long out of date and can no longer easily be found. Thus MPEG Streamclip. which has always been an excellent if slightly rough hewn (UI-wise) app, came in very handy.

For converting video from obscure formats and especially some Windows WMV/WMA formats I suspect MPEG Streamclip may be the only app still being widely distributed that will handle these old files for a reasonable price--assuming you have the codecs needed: This app must rely on a variety of codecs/plugins that are fast disappearing as they have been deprecated now--sometimes for years.

A brilliant application until DivX updated to 10.2,(Mpeg Streamclip seems to require DivX to convert files to mp3 format),which,for some reason,no longer works in tandem with Mpeg Streamclip when converting files to mp3 format.
I've awarded this software full marks because of its previous brilliance. Hopefully,a fix can be made to solve the above problem I am encountering.

Glad you have it sorted,Barry. You know,maybe when I installed DivX Pro a long time ago,it included the mpeg 2 component.

Barry,I have checked my computer and I can find no MPEG-2 components anywhere. I do have Perian installed. I now understand QuickTime Pro does not have MPEG-2 included.

Hi Dougster,
I went ahead, held my breath and purchased the MPEG-2 Component from Apple. It works!
Thanks so much for your help.

Barry,
This is what I use MPEG Streamclip for: to convert mp4 files to mp3.To convert flv files to mpeg. Also,to knock down the bit rates of said files.I have no problems with it.
The only time I did run into a problem is when I deleted DivX from my computer. Reinstalling that and MPEG Streamclip worked fine again. I don't know if this makes a jot of difference,but I use QuickTime Player Pro. Whether that has MPEG-2 playback incorporated,I do not know. Shame there is no way of contacting you directly through MacUpdate,because I could have then let you have my QT Pro serial to try it out.

Maybe you should contact the developer of MPEG Streamclip,if you haven't already done so.

Hello again,Barry! Not what you want to read,but I don't know what else to suggest. I have just uninstalled and reinstalled MPEG Streamclip with no problem. I don't know what type of problems you are having with it.
There's an mpeg2 trial available here>>>> http://www.divx.com/en/software/mpeg-2
BUT I have never paid for anything to get MPEG Streamclip to work. I can find no trace of any mpeg2 plug-in on my Mac!
Let me know if you manage to sort out the problem,but I wouldn't pay DivX for their software.

Dougster: Thank you for your assistance. I have uninstalled/reinstalled Streamclip with same result.
I can open .m4v and .dv files, but MPEG and .VOB files fail. They load, it shows the length of the clip, the timer runs, but can't see video or hear audio. So, if I understand, you have NOT purchased the Apple MPEG-2 Playback component that is referenced above? It says it is required. Yet, if you click the link, it takes you to a page that doesn't mention the component.

Firstly,I was incorrect in my previous post saying MPEG Streamclip would not work with Mavericks. It does,but I'm back to using Mountain Lion again (couldn't stand the loss of coloured labels in Mavericks).
Anyway,Barry,I needed to install DivX to get MPEG Streamclip to work properly,so maybe you could try that.

I have DivX, and a trial version of their MPEG-2 Converter plug in, but still doesn't work.
I don't mind buying the MPEG2 component, as long as I know I can install it and it will work.

OOPS! I now see you already have the Div X trial software.

Need help installing. Confused about need for MPEG2 component. Is it actually needed? I don't see it listed on MAC App site. Apple says it can't be installed to OSX. Will Perian Quicktime work instead? I've installed it, but don't think it works. Very frustrating. Any help would be wonderful!
