My PPC and Universal versions of FCP 4 included the QuictimeMPEG2 component. It was actually named something like for Quicktime 6.
I've since upgraded to FCP 5 and had reason to try to view a m2v video and Quicktime couldn't do it. Is the mpeg2 componant no longer part of FCP?
I was able to reinstall from my previous backup and view the file, but I'm now wondering if there is a Quicktime 7 version? Does Apple expect us to spend an extra $20 for this functionality after laying out big bucks for Final Cut Pro Suite?

That's been Apple's habit and policy for as long as I can remember. Every major (version #) upgrade to QT requires more $$ for both corresponding QTPro and MPEG2components (and other things).
Has greatly delayed my implementation of upgrades a number of times!
That's probably also one main reason why QTAlternative got so popular.
So the current version of Final Cut Suite doesn't install a version at all?
1. Apple's QT plugins are in /System/Library/QuickTime/
while third party plugins are in /Library/QuickTime/ .
2. FCP should come with Compressor, and Compressor should include the MPEG2 component.
3. Version 6.4 is current for PPC.
