Armed for further stealth disco with a DCR-IP7
I would like to pitch in adime on the issues related to Sony microMV camcorders/devices use with Mac (and I mean Mac OS X not classic as to OS). I have also learned the hard way (after buying a Sony IP model) that I could not use FCP etc. to video capture from the camera with firewire. recently a post I started at videolan.org has moved things forward a bit in which the use of DVHSCap (a program bundled in Apple latest firewire SDK package) has allowed me to capture from the camcorder. The issue is that the m2t file format is not compatible with QT, FCP, DVDpro and the like (ALTHOUGH ONE CAN VIEW IT USING VLC). At this point one has to use several free apps to first demux (I am using mpgtxwrap) the m2t in a video file (m2v that unfortunately is not recognized by QT even after I added the MPEG2 playback component) and an MP3 audio file. At this stage I still need to convert...
