opening .M2T files
I just can't get this mac to do it. Does anyone have a good link to download something that will open it?

Also if I get a HDV camera and it won't open .m2t files will I have a problem using a camera like the Sony V1? Or is this just two different issues?

Can't you capture then output QT, wmv or something?

VLC is the program you need to view .m2t on a Mac.

Also, both Final Cut and Avid (your main choices editing on a Mac) have their own formats for cutting HDV. Don't sweat it.

Thanks Nate. I tried that VLC and I don't have many problems with my mac. But after I downloaded that it froze up and did some weird stuff. I trashed it.

VLC is generally accepted to work fine, if a little user-unfriendly.

It's the only game in town to play .m2t on a Mac. The good news is that it's generally only needed to view samples from this board!

When I really am interested in seeing what a sample clip looks like on my HD CRT, I open the m2t in MPEGSTREAMCLIP and then convert it to HDV QT or DVCPROHD QT, and then play out of Final Cut to my monitor.
