(I presume you mean mpeg-1) You can use the export feature from QuickTime Pro. QuickTime Pro is pay from Apple ($30 - not really a budget buster). I forget the exact reason why, but QuickTime Pro won’t let you convert the audio in mpeg-1 files. You’d have to do it separately, by using VirtualDub (go to file, save as wav) then merging the two back together (I forget how though).
I should have suggested this earlier. I totally forgot to mention it before, because I was really tired the night I answered this thread.
Use virtualdub to convert your mpeg to avi (preferrably using a lossless codec or uncompressed). Then use QuickTime Pro to convert to mov. That handles the audio.
I need to convert .mpg files to .mov files as well, but I can only find Virtualdub for Windows. (You suggested using virtualdub to .avi, then using Quicktime Pro to .mov) Is there any program similar to virtualdub for Mac? I’m having a lot of trouble figuring out how to do this on my mac and am getting frustrated. Thanks for any help!
actually there are several such programs.. titlelab... is one of them....Miyu is another.... subripx is another as well...
subtitler is also around...
basiaclly it takes some time and digging ... but yes they are around.. you also can use virtualdubmod under virtual pc ( suggest booting into os9 before doing that in virtuual pc..)
Hey I just got an IPod video for christmas and i need to know if there is a way to convert .mpg to .mov (or any other way I can get .mov format videos without paying) without using quicktime pro? P.S. can’t pay for quicktime pro-all money spent on christmas. Please help getting mad and annoyed. >:(
personally i had noyt even remembered i had dropped a post... about yolur old conversion question... mpg to mov,, quicktime is the best way.. if you do dnot wish to do that there was open quicktime.. which MIGHT work...quicktime itself really is not that expensive and it is multiplatform frendly
I am attempting to put together a highlight video of my Sons football games this year. I have a Sony camera with a hard drive. Each week I downloaded that weeks game to my pc, then burned a disc. Well...I then purchased an IMAC. After purchasing the IMAC, I immediately downloaded that weeks game onto my IMAC and edited it. Then...I put in a disc of one of the previous games I had burned. When I access the disc, all the files are shown individually. They are all mpg files. When I try to open one of the clips, a screen says that these files are not “movie files”?
I am thinking I need to convert the files on the disc to mov format. Is that possible? What will I need or can I purchase to finish my work for my Son? Is it possible to decompress these files....so that they were like they were when in the camera, so that I can work with them on my IMAC (imovie)? Please help!
i need to know how to convert .mpg video files into .mov quicktime video files
any help would save my life
There is a tutorial, which teach you convert video/audio(MOV/MP4/FLV/AVI/MPEG/3GP/MP3/AAC...) to each other step by step on your Mac.
Why not use Moyea Video4Web Converter? It is free and can exactly convert mpg to mov, besides, it can convert all video to Flash video.
