    MPEG-2 files and how to work with them

    I am preparing a Keynote presentation and need to use some pretty old footage. I have some material that I only have as .m2v files. I can view these in VLC but can't edit them or import them into Media Composer. I have tried converting them in VLC and then importing into MC but the imported copies are unstable (juddery). I have MPEG Streamclip but it needs Quicktime MPEG-2 playback component to enable it to play these files - I believe that is long gone on my system.

    Any advice on the best way to proceed?

    Thanks

    I have used Squeeze for this when needed, the Pro version will create Avid MXF files / folders , just to drag the databasefile inside a bin and off you go.
