Dear friend, I had my problem in playing mpg format videos though I already installed the said mpg codec for mac. I am running Lion OS X and using QuickTime player. I already reinstalled the codec several times but unfortunately the error was still exist. Does anyone here know how to fix this kind of issue?
Having trouble playing .mpg files even if mpg Codec was already installed
I’m not sure why you are having this problem with your mpg video since you are using QuickTime Player. This application can also play videos in MPG format and you don’t have to install any more codec just to be able to play the video. When you install QuickTime all the required codec for the video formats it support will be installed automatically.
If you are sure that there is something wrong with your program, you may want to do a clean installation of the program again to fix any corrupted files that may be present in the system. Uninstall QuickTime then restart your computer when asked. After booting, check your computer for any possible errors. Use a disk utility application to check the system. Install QuickTime again then check if this fixes the problem.
It’s also possible that you are still using an older version of QuickTime. Try upgrading your present version to QuickTime 7.7.1 which you can download from Apple — QuickTime — Download QuickTime 7.
