FX1 Quicktime Components

Does anyone know what quicktime components are needed to view sony FX1 capture files that were captured with FInal Cut Pro 5? I recently lost many of my plugins when I had my OS reinstalled and I'm curious to know which one I'm still missing. when I open the old file it tells me that the necessary component is missing... Please help!

If it still plays in FCP it should play in QT. FCP uses QT as its display engine. Did you re-install FCP 5 when you re-installed OS X?

Download the latest versions of Quicktime, Final Cut and the OS via software updater, then your should be good to go. No need for extra components since Apple build them in Quicktime.

Vincent is correct. No extra "plugins" needed.

You should try reinstalling FCP 5. Along with that, you'll automatically be installing QT pro. FCP/QT includes all of the codecs needed to play back HD footage of just about any flavor and there's nothing exotic about Sony FX1 HDV. It's plain old 1080i HDV.

From the info you've given us, there is no reason the clips should not play. If a proper installation of FCP does not work for you, then I would question whoever reinstalled your OS and/or do it again yourself.
