I have created some .mpg files by recording TV programs with Arcsoft TotalMedia 3.5. This records ok and I can replay the mpgs thru TotalMedia and Windows Classic media Player. However when I try to watch the mpg thru VLC nothing happens. Other programs which should open mpgs give an unsupported media error. According to GSPOT the files are mpeg-2 transport stream and mime type video/mp2t. Can anyone tell me what the problem is and how to solve it please? In addition to playing with VLC, I want to be able to add the mpg to an editor such as Pinnacle Studio.
