Hmmm it's support converting MLV

Try to convert your footage with this MLVApp. Can you give small MLV sample? You can trim it with MLVApp also.

Is it possible continous 2 hours recording without stop with 50d?
What is best resolution with 25fps (continous recording)?

Standard install went fine (watched a couple of yt videos before trying).

However, I'm having trouble with knowing even the basic settings to shoot video (both the 50D menu and the ML menus).
Also, when I go into live mode, the info on the bottom of the screen is flickering.

Would someone please point me to a tutorial or document to set up to do only a basic shoot while I'm learning about the other features/settings?

Hi there. I don't think you'll find anything specific to video in the Canon 50D menus about video, as the 50D isn't supposed to shoot video. However, in the ML menus, under the 'movie camera' symbol you can turn video recording on and off - enable it here. Then select live preview mode (the button above the screen that turns on live preview), then if you press the button in the middle of the control wheel on the back, you can start and stop recording video. Once you can do that, you can play with all the other settings, which are explained in the ML menu.

I've got quite a lot of ML video from my 50D, recorded at 23.976fps. Its metadata reports it is 30fps (as noted elsewhere).
If I put it into my NLE (Lightworks) and slow it down to 80% normal speed, the NLE does this by inserting extra (copy) frames once in a while, which is a bit clunky. If I use FFMPEG to re-label it as 24fps (near enough!), it only seems to be able to do this by re-encoding, which given that these are lossy codecs is, again, a bit clunky - not to mention time consuming.
Has anyone figured out how to just change the appropriate metadata in the ML output so it is correctly labelled as 23.976fps? This mis-labelling by ML is proving to be a very irritating bug!
