More codec problems
I have a similar problem. I have tried recording Quicktime HD directly to my Firestore FS-C from my XH-A1. The FS-C has two functions that allow you to select either a M2t file or a QuickTime file.
When I copy the QuickTime file to my hard drive I find it won't play back in either Windows Media Player or the QuickTime player I have installed on my PC machine. I just plays back garbled audio.
Ultimately I want Serious Magic's Ultra 2 to use the QuickTime HD file for green screening. Ultra seems to work fine for SD.
I think I need the QuickTime HD codec? But I haven't been able to find it anywhere on the net. Is the HD QuickTime only for Final Cut?

If it's DVCPRO HD QuickTime, there's no DVCPRO HD QuickTime codec on Windows, so it won't play in Windows Media Player or even QuickTime Player.

EDIUS Broadcast is the only way I know of to open it on a Windows machine.

RayLight Decoder will let you play or edit DVCPro HD QuickTime files on a PC. It will not let you encode.

Ahh, good to know. Thanks for that!
