“I’m new to QuickTime Player. I recently got an Olympus PEN E-P3 camera. I recorded videos and want to view them using QuickTime. However, I can’t seem to watch the videos or import them into QuickTime. The videos are AVCHD, there is a clip folder (CPI) and a stream folder (MTS). I used to own a Canon that will automatically import the videos. But I tried to manually import the videos, but MacBook Air can’t detect the videos. I hope I can get some simple guidance. I’m really bad at computers. Thanks in advance!”
