1) What applications on the Apple Mac are available for capturing and using the QuickTime .MOV files recorded to SDHC card from this JVC GY-HM700E camera, APART from Final Cut Studio?
JVC GY-HM700E documention here:
I am informed that Final Cut Studio can understand these files, as discussed here:
BUT I am not aware of any other program applicaton that can. FCS is expensive and I may consider it in the long term but for the short term would like to be aware of other options.
The camera offers support (BUT not built-in) for a 'recorder' module that enables MP4 but this is outside my current budget for now so would like a solution for the built-in Quicktime support in the camera.
I have a new (April2010) MacBookPro 13" that I would like to work with the material on.
2) I have tried to play the .MOV files from the camera's SDHC card on a 2.8Ghz Pentium D with XP running QuickTime but quicktime points me here: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/resources/components.html?os=Windows&ctype=696d6463&csubtype=78647663
...saying that I might need to download something from there to get it to play, but looking there, none of the add-ons seems relevant. I am using Quicktime 7. Please advise here too.

It seems the recorded .mov files use the "MPEG2 Long GOP" video codec. Not sure if this codec is available outside of Final Cut Pro.
There are instructions in this thread , and a link to an open source XDCAM quicktime component which should work for this
