PC Video Codec

Hello,
I downloaded video mpg files from my camcorder to my PC. I can watch these videos fine on my PC, using windows media player and other viewers. What I am really trying to do is insert the video into a PowerPoint file. When I do this, PowerPoint is not able to run the video. After some small research, I understand that PowerPoint uses mplay32.exe, and when I try to run my video with this program directly, it also doesn't work. The solution, as I understand it, is to download a codec to my PC. I tried (and I think successfully) installed/copied a few codecs to my PC, but the video still doesn't work in PowerPoint/mplay32. Does anyone have a suggestion of what I can do?
Thanks,
Ron

    Unfortunately, that didn't seem to work. I mean, I installed the standard version of the product, accepting all of the defaults, and I don't see a difference in behavior.

Technician77 is absolutely right, you should be nice and rank him a "Fixya!".

Additionally, Codex really should be installed and not copied directly to ensure that they are added correctly. The k_lite pack is the best installer for the average set of normally used codex.

I can watch my footage on my cam but when i plug my usb in to my cpu they ar not able 2 play back or viable i have a jvc gz hd3u


Hello,
You may not have the proper CODEC installed on your PC for AVCHD videos. Try using VideoLAN or kmplayer to play the video. These multi-format players have most common CODEC's bundled. If you want to play the files with windows media player try installing a codec pack. You can google for that, but I recommend using one of the mentioned players instead as it is cleaner and they are fast.
If your PC does play the video but its really choppy, you might not have a fast enough processor / or video card to keep up with the high bandwidth high def video.
Regards, Chris

Cant watch a dvd using windows media player, i can hear the audio but no video


This is typically caused by not having the correct codec required for the video. You can get free codecs like ffdshow at sites like this: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/ffdshow.htm

Every time i open the GOM player it would ask for "FIND codec"


GOM Player includes many codecs (XviD, DivX, FLV1, AC3, OGG, MP4, H263) Along with different media format such as AVI, MPG, MPEG and DAT, GOM Player also supports streaming Windows media format (WMV, ASF, ASX).

Possible Reason:

* Ensure that you have downloaded a genuine version and not a broken file, which is likely to miss some codecs, GOM is a FREE media player with popular audio & video codecs built-in. So you won't need to install separate codecs for most videos. For those videos that require a separate codec, GOM Player will find one.

* Without the appropriate codec, you'll be prohibited from playing AV files/the codec for which the file you are playing is missing (playback error), which prompts you to "Find Codec" screen. In the case you need other codecs, the 'Find Codec' popup will assist you in searching for the correct codec to play your file. If you didn't find any: first reason is likely to be the issue.

Fixes:

*Search Result will be shown on a new internet page. Once youve found it, simply download and install to watch the AV files.

Hello Windows media player and movie maker won't recognise the videos taken by my JVC GZMG750, is their anything i can do to fixs this Regards Fiona


Do you mean you cannot play the videos in Windows media Player? If yes then all you need is a Codec pack. You can download the k-lite mega codec pack which includes media player classic that you can use to play the files.

If problem persists then let me know the extension of the video files so that I can suggest an appropriate solution.

Hello,

The codec needed to extract audio is not present in your computer. Maybe you need to install all the application program from the CD/DVD enclosed in your Camera. Or you can use other player other than windows media player.

I recommend you to download the player that content multi codecs, the link is here: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Media_Player_Classic.htm

may this solve your problem.

How do I play MPEG recordings?


Using Windows Media Player You need Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher and Sharp G.726 Audio Codec in order to play MPEG4 files from the Memory Stick on your PC. If you are not currently using Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher. Important: The Sharp G.726 Audio Codec needed to play MPEG4 files is no longer signed by Microsoft. If Sharp G.726 Audio Codec is not properly installed on your PC, it will not play MPEG4 Audio. Using DivX® You can also download a free DivX® Player and codec to play your MPEG and other video format files. DivX® for Windows is a free codec built to play every version of DivX content. The DivX codec also plugs into your existing video software so you can view and create high-quality DivX videos at a fraction of the original size. The DivX codec also adds DivX video playback support to most popular media players.
