Hi everyone, I have taken some video clips on digital camera but cannot play them back. Click on properties shows them as AVI files or Windows Movies.
Tried Nero, Media player, Real player. DIVX but they all say format not
Any help please.
Are you sure that they are avi files and not mov files? Quicktime or VLC player should play them. It might help to state which camera so that we can check file format.
As said try VLC and more info. By the way AVI is not a format merely a container for numerous others that go under that
Hi again, sorry for the delay I was trying to get together more info but
So we have,
Plug in camera and it shows as H drive
Click on it gives DCMI/100DSCIM/PICT0016 (for example could be any file)
It says on screen that this is an AVI file 1.05 mb
Click on it goes to DIVX which says unsupported format.
Right click gives me the options DIVX/Media Player/ Media Plater TM or
All error messages are wrong format or corrupted based.
I have four clips that will not play but on the same drive (mem card) there are twelve others that work OK
VLC, can someone give me a link please
Use a tool called Gspot (Tells you which codec you need for the video and audio). I would also try to play it in VLC media player or GOM player
Have you tried double clicking the file
You still haven't told us which camera. I expect it is a MOV file.
VLC - Google would have found it.
hi all, ref VLC or GOM can anyone give me a link to download please,
Woodchip, yes I did double click but I take your point it is often we overlook the obvious, well me especially. Thanks Ray
Woolwell has just given you the link in the post above yours
I have installed VLC, I think I crossed links with woolwells posting.
VLC gives me these error messages.
File reading failure
No suitable decoder module or video format "undf"
AVI file index broken or missing.
The camera has no makers name on it, it came from china and is called "Road safety guard"
Can be used in a car fixed to the windscreen not that I can see how this makes anything safer.
