I've included a picture of the error message and would appreciate any help I can get.  I love using tracker in my physics class but had to download it to my MAC again this year so I could continue using it.  I tried importing several different videos and got the same message each time with no indication of how to fix the issue.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I suspect you need to convert the videos to another format, they probably use a codec that is not supported by the (now aging) Xuggle video engine. You might try Cloud Convert at https://cloudconvert.com/.  FLV is a format that Xuggle handles well.  Doug
