"My brother had his video camera tapes converted to CDs. He didn't know what to do with them, so he gave them to me. Every disc has a folder called VIDEO_TS. In every folder there are 5 files.


What do I do with these? Is there a way to make them Quicktime movies or import them into Final Cut Pro X?

Thanks for any help."
