Streamclip and Mpeg Program Streams


I normally use Streamclip to convert M2T HDV files to MOVs for use in Final Cut Pro.

Recently, however, I received some HDV MPEG2 Program Stream files (.mpg) created with DVRack HD. These open up in Streamclip, but it only shows the first second of so of the file, and only converts the first second.

It says the files are, like, 2GB large, but 100KB readable.

Sony Vegas reads them just fine, so I'm desparate for a way to get them converted to a format that FCP can edit, preferably with no recompression...

Anyone know how I can get these to work in Streamclip?

Thanks in advance...

Does the rest of the clip turn white?

If so i had exactly the same problem. I ended up buying HDVxDV instead and it never had a glitch. MPEGStreamclip is brilliant free app but i've heard a few glitches recently, might be worth e-mailing the creator of it if it's happening a lot.
