Unfortunately the canon software drops the index.bdm and movieobj.bdm when copying the clips over to your computer, so without re-authoring the videos I could not play them on the Oppo.
However I was able to hook the camera up via USB and the Oppo navigated down to the clips and could play them just fine. Very handy since I don't have any hdmi ports accessable from the front of my system.
I am completely new to this forum. I am trying to view my HF10 files as well but am having difficulty. When you say that the BDP-83 needs the entire file structure, what exactly do you mean? I copy my camcorder files over to my mac from the "AVCHD" folder down (i.e. including the AVCHDTN, BDMV, and CANON folders and everything contained therein, but not including the PRIVATE folder directly above AVCHD). Will these files be enough to playback my .mts files if I burn the entire file structure to a DVD-R or DVD+R DL?
Also, I was stupid enough to have copied just the .mts files (or the files in the STREAM folder) on a few occasions, thinking I just needed the stream files and nothing else. Is it possible to recover the entire file structure and all the necessary files (is this what you mean by "re-authoring")? Or am I up a creek? If it is possible, how do I go about doing it?
Sorry about the lateness of the post. Thanks for your help
