MPEG-2 is a encoding and compression standard developed by Motion Pictures Expert Group (MPEG). MPEG-2 is widely used on DVDs and digital TVs for transmitting digital signals. The MPEG-2 stream used in DVDs are also known as program stream while used in digital TVs are transport stream.
Recently many people like to play MPEG-2 files on QuickTime, but in practice when they playing MPEG-2 on QuickTime, they always end in fail. That's because QuickTime 7.6 or later users need to purchase and install Apple's QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component to play MPEG-2. However sometimes you still can't play MPEG-2 files even if you have installed Apple's QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component. For Apple's QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component can only support MPEG-2 files with the extensions of .mpg, .mpeg, .vob, .vro, .m2v, .m2a, and .m2s for some non-encrypted program streams. Apple's QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component can't play MPEG-2 files encoded as transport streams in digital TVs, MPEG-2 files encoded as program streams on some encrypted DVDs or MPEG-2 files with PCM, DTS, or AC3 audio.
In order to solve Apple's QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component 'can not issues' and play all MPEG-2 files on QuickTime, we had better convert MPEG-2 to one QuickTime most compatible video format, like MOV, by the assistance of an MPEG-2 to QuickTime Converter - iDealshare VideoGo
