How do I get P2 and/or DVCPro 24p 720p (960x720) footage from Final Cut Pro to play on a computer without FCP at the highest quality and in the proper aspect ratio (1280x720)? I have FCP, compressor, & MPEG Streamclip to convert the footage. It currently will only play audio or it errors. Thanks!
ProRes422 will work on a PC with quicktime 7 installed. If this is a final master that you just want to play on most computers then converting the finished master to H264 (1280 x 720) will mean it should play on most computers, even if quicktime isn't installed.
H264 is a pretty universal codec for most computers these days.
