    file extension is .m2v. The videos are edited using Studio 9 on a PC.
    .m2v files are mpeg-2 videos, no audio.
    I get a "file is not a movie file" everytime i try to open an .m2v file.

    thanks for the suggestions.
    im sticking to my vlc player to play .m2v files instead of paying $20 just play them. not worth just to play a few 2-minute videos
