Tutorial - Finding DVCPRO HD Codec


Here are the links I showed in the above video. (whoa… are these my first “show notes”?) and the “decode only” version of the codec can be found here.

The untested links to a couple of DVCPRO HD components can be found here.

The legal explanation on LAFCPUG can be found here.

Great videos! I appreciate the info. Make sure to restart your computer after putting the .component files into your Quicktime folder otherwise the Finder and Final Cut Express wont recognize the video in the new files you create. It took me forever to figure out what the problem was but I just needed to restart.

Hi Chris,
very nice clips. Can you show me a way to convert .h264 into ProRes 422 or how to add this codec to mpeg streamclip? I would appreciate it very much!

What if I have all of those codecs in my quicktime library and MPEG Streamclip still does not give me those options?

If you don't have DVCPRO HD or ProRes you can go here:

If you don't have Compressor/FCP or an Apple App there is a work *COUGH* around:

After downloading try this

Use that app to uppack the update to a folder on your desktop.

Then stick the .component files in your HD -> Library -> Quicktime Folder
