MPEG Streamclip overview

MPEG Streamclip converts QuickTime movies, MPEG-1/2/4 files and transport streams into several formats; for MPEG-2 playback and export, the QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component is required.MPEG Streamclip can play and convert selectable parts of QuickTime movies, MPEG files and transport streams with MPEG/AC3/PCM audio into DV streams or QuickTime, AVI, MPEG-4 movies using any video codec, with optional 2D-FIR professional scaling, motion-adaptive deinterlacing, and other pro options; all in YUV, with audio in perfect sync. It also performs fast conversions to muxed MPEG files and demuxed M2V, AIFF, M1A, AC3 files, for direct burning with DVD Studio Pro and Toast 6, 7, 8.

This will be a great loss when 32 bit apps won't run any more...
It hasn't been updated in 6 years so I doubt it will ever be. :-(
I only use it for cutting and trimming, and it works perfectly on mp4 files.
.ts files are only dealt with in SD, so most of mine being HD, I have to convert them first in mp4.
[I've just tried Joyoshare Media Cutter that, on the contrary, won't do SD .ts but HD! Not bad, but not very precise — no GOTO IN/OUT, hard to set edit points to the image, and even when you do, you don't get the same thing when exporting the clip.]

Further to my comment Dec 22, 2017, the GUI misplacement is a Retina High Res thing, rather than related to MacOS version. I first noticed it on my 2015 27" 5k Mac (I believe it was El Cap then). 'Info' on the App and check 'Open in low resolution' definitely fixes it, but note that any major OS Updates resets it and you have to set it again. This is an App that I really could not do without. It is as it says "MPEG Streamclip", strips Streams from Transport Stream files and the like. For example, a .TS DTV Stream may contain Video, multiple Audio Streams, Teletext Streams, etc. With this App, you can just output the required Video and main Audio Stream and dump the rest. This is really useful in the case of Stripping SD Multiple Streams, outputting to mpeg (Quick and no quality loss), Renaming the .mpeg Extender to .mts and Apple Final Cut Pro X imports it wonderfully for editing. The fact that MPEG Streamclip has a cutter, is a bonus, but that's not it's real purpose. Sad that we will lose its use, when 32 bit Apps can't be used and in reply to Dougster, the only other useful App I've found for Stripping out Streams is remux 1.4, which I use for HD, as MPEG Streamclip is for SD only. AvideMux is more of a Converter/Editor and isn't quite as useful for Stream Stripping as MPEG Streamclip and remux 1.4.

As has been mentioned, the GUI misplacement is a Retina High Res thing, rather than a Sierra problem. 'Info' on the App and check 'Open in low resolution' and apart from the dialogue text looking slightly less clear, all will display OK.

I use VLC to playback my videos, have done so for quite some time. I use MDRP to rip my DVDs to mp4 formatting. I tried out this MPEG Streamclip in hops of cutting out a clip to send to a friend. Can't see anyway to do that yet and MP4 format will not import to iMovie so no luck there. But I was very surprised at the quality of the playback in MPEG Streamclip compared to what I am used to in VLC. Wow, the audio is much, much better. The video may be better too. Wont go full screen like VLC but for quality I didn’t even know I was missing, wow again. And yes, I have the latest Apple macOS Sierra.

It still works on macOS 10.12.x Sierra! However, using v1.9.3b8, I ran into visual problems: - The controls along the bottom of the play window are in the right place, but the GUI representations are not. You can figure this out quickly and compensate. - When changing the aspect ratio, I found parts of the window became static during playback, which is disconcerting. However, if you export the resulting video, it looks fine. You have to trust that what you see is not going to end up being what you get. What you get is fine. As ever, the learning curve is massive. But if you are comfortable with the vast array of settings, this remains a great tool! Still highly recommended, if you can deal with the flaky GUI distortions.

Would it be convenient to have built-in support for the MPEG-2 component that's included with Lion and above? Sure. Does it matter? Nope. Just follow the developer's extremely simple instructions per the MPEG-2 situation and it will work right away. It's not difficult to figure out despite what some would grouchily suggest, and it's worth the 60 seconds it takes to implement. Anyone who knows enough to need this program is more than capable of installing it properly.***

I'm using MPEG Streamclip 1.9.3b8 on OSX 10.11.1 (El Capitan) and it works perfectly. I use it often when capturing old analog sources via a DV converter device, to trim the final clips and re-join them. I do the same with MPEG-2 often as well. Thank you Squared5 for this constant in my life! :)

***EDIT: I neglected to mention something important. You DO have to go search out the file "QuickTimeMPEG2.dmg" on your own. But it is very easy to find.

Anyone know if this still works in Yosemite. Only problem I've seen in Mavericks is keyboard shortcut to resize window flakey. Drag to resize works. I can't find anything that says if with Yosemite Apple has continued deprecating parts of the Quicktime API Streamclip relies on. TIA

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.

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.

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.

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.
