Videos have no visuals after being imported from camera

  chris.smilley 12:17 15 Nov 2013

I have recently bought a new Hp PAVILION laptop with windows 8. I imported video footage from a night I recorded for university. However the footage when put on my laptop tried to import to pictures instead of videos. This has resulted in a loss of visuals but not a loss of sound. Is there a way in which I can recover the lost visuals on my computer as the original footage was wiped by the university before I had a chance to realise the error.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

sounds like you do not have the codec codec on the laptop to play the video

click here what media player are you using? VLC should play almost anything
