MPEG Streamclip for OS X 10.6.8 and FCP X
on Sep 21, 2011 at 8:14:07 am

I have searched the web and found a great deal about the issue of missing MPEG2 Playback component for use by MPEG streamclip, however so far no solution to the particular issue I have.

It appears as though I have the MPEG2 playback component, it appears in the library>quicktime>apple mpeg2 codec.component
but NOT in system>library>quicktime

MPEG streamclip does not recognise that it's here at all (IF in fact it is, I believe this comes as part of FCP X, though can't confirm that).

Before I plop down $20 at the app store for something I can copy and paste from my own machine, can anyone offer any advice? Would this be possible and how would I actually do it?

I have a DVD copy of OS X but no physical copy of FCP X if I need to hunt down a folder or something.

I am a new Mac user and naturally worried about tinkering around in the system folders to begin with so please if anyone answers assume I know nothing (and you'd be right!).

Any help extremely welcome.
Thanks.

From the top of my head, install QT 7 from MAC OS installation disk (in optional installs). You might also want to instal VLC and perian components for comfortable life.

Thanks Everest, I have installed QT7 and the new codecs bundle released yesterday from Apple... Mpeg2 not among them sadly, apparently it's a licensing issue with Sorenson?

I still believe it's lurking somewhere on my machine already. Anyone know for sure? Heading to the app store soon looks like...
