I have used MakeMKV for Mac to 'wrap' an MPEG2 video and AC3 audio source. The resulting file(s) play fine in VLC for Mac. The files will open fine in QuickTime but play with repeated smearing and/or macroblock problems.
This has been reproduced on a Mac mini running Mac OS X 10.5.8 and Perian 1.2, and a MacBook? Pro running Mac OS X 10.6.2 and Perian 1.2.1. Both machines also had the Apple MPEG2 QuickTime component installed.
