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.

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!

It's amazing this app is free! It's really best to read the short manual because some of the stuff it does is confusing, but it's not MPEG Streamclip's fault that video stuff and various codecs and settings have a bit of a learning curve to really understand. The app is stable and has never let me down!

Excellent tool! Mostly I'm extracting audio from videos, sometimes recoding big movies into smaller ones. Does its job flawlessly. Highly recommend it!

JerryFisher1625 had trouble on 20 Apr 2013
I've been using MPEG Streamclip since I purchased my TiVo just before Christmas and it has been part of my workflow to work with documentaries off cable television. I use KMTTG to decrypt the television shows into MPEG files and then I used MPEG Streamclip to edit out the commercials. It wasn't always the most precise editor but for freeware with the flexibility that it has, who can really complain? However, it suddenly stopped working about a month ago. I can still open up MPEG files from my TiVo in it, but the video window is blank while the audio plays fine. Does anyone have any ideas on what I could try or do?

gecko64 had trouble on 31 May 2012
Streamclip has worked great for me in the past, but now it does not let me change the Quality setting (it's locked at 50% with inactive slider) and ignores settings like Preserve Alpha Channel. I upgraded to Lion recently, so I wonder if that's the problem. I got the latest beta, but no difference. I'm converting to FLV -- do I need the MPEG2 add-on component for this? I'm really stumped. Any suggestions?

michiganmother had trouble on 25 Feb 2008
I must be doing something wrong, after reading all the great comments here, but the resolution I am getting when I convert a MPEG1 file from my Sony Cybershot camera to either DV or MPEG4 format is terrible! Video looks fine in Quicktime or in Streamclip viewer before conversion, but I can see individual pixels in converted version in both Quicktime and iMovie. Original file is 640x480, I am using Mac version of Streamclip 1.9.1, and am clipping a 7 minute portion of original video from the file to convert so I can import into iMovie. Using all the preset defaults. Anyone have any ideas?

I'm running into the same problem as Mac Adam. Streamclip 1.9.2 doesn't work on PPC running Leopard when extracting VOB files... AT ALL. Very frustrating, especially after paying for the mpeg 2 download for quicktime. Any help out there?
