I installed as suggested.  I still have the following problems:

1) When I play back the .mts file, I get video but no sound.

2) Interlacing -- but I'll deal with that later.

3) Transcoding: I no longer get errors for transcoding.  I picked MP4 
for video and MP4-AAC for audio.  The result is a file that has audio 
but no video.  I've tried a couple different video formats and end up 
with either no video or the codec isn't available or no conversion can 
be done.  I also tried it using Ogg, with theora for video and vorbis 
for audio -- no video!

I hope at this point I'm just being dense and missing a simple setting 
to make sure I get video -- but I do select a video codec for the 

Any help is much appreciated!
