Importing MPEG-2 Files

When you import an MPEG-2 file, Compressor must parse the file before you can play it
in the Preview window. Parsing the file involves determining its frame structure and other
necessary information about the file. Since the frame structure can change throughout
the file, Compressor must scan through the entire file, which can take several minutes
for longer files.
