Problem playing movie Samsung L200

I love this camera but when I make a mini movie and download it onto my computer, I can't see the video. Media player opens and I hear everything, I just don't see it. I have the latest version (media player 11) and I have tried to open it up with Winamp as well and I have the same issue. Can someone please help me? Thanks!!!

When you download the software to your computer, there is a section for downloading the software to play the movie clips. Go try that. Run through the install again.

Hey, I just got the camera the other day and it is an awesome camera. The videos that the camera take are in mpeg-4 format and do not play in your regular media player, they will however play in some newer cell phones such as the Blackberry and can you guess.......most Samsung phones that have video capability. I believe the new RealPlayer will play the videos for you, just go to and get the free one. ;) Play around with the camera, it's does so many things (very customizable), it's for people that don't to pay for a professional $1,900.00 camera, but it does just as good with the exception of being able to change the lens. Hope this helps.

Canon ixus camera says my movie clip is an error

The video files your particular camera makes should be AVI format. What media player are you using? I've heard of problems playing AVI files with Windows Media Player.
Try using a different media player like VLC or Winamp. There are also video format conversion programs out there for free. I use anyvideoconverter for that. You can get all of those programs from's download center.

Downloading Video from Samsung L200 into Mac (Iphoto)

hi matt,

you need to upgrade the video codec of your computer, you can download them online and install them in your PC

that should help you view the videos

also make sure that the program that you are using can play AVI format, since the camera saves videos in AVI format

hope this helps

I have found that with my videos I cannot open them on either of my computers (one running Vista and the other XP)... or I can open them but I cannot get the viedo and the sound at the same time, I get one or the other.... try downloading the VLC player at this program allows you to open the file and you will get both the sound and the vidoe... Hope this helps!!

Samsung L200, cannot play videos on my mac

You need to download a driver for mac in order for it to play the videos. the driver is called xvid. You need to download the one for quicktime. I downloaded it from and downloaded the binary component. I'm sure there are lots of other places that you can download it too if you search. The download gives you a component that you drag into your quicktime folder which is located in the library folder. I just dragged it in and now the videos play in quicktime.

I have been trying to put the videos that i have on my camera on to my computer and i can only hear the voices but i cant see the actual video...then i tried it on the PS3 and it says that the data is not...


If you can only hear the sound, but not see the video while playing it on a PC - it's a codec problem. The file format from a Samsung camera is not supported by your video player.

You have to use a different video player. Try using Videolan player - you can download it from It's a free software and it's safe.

If you want to play the videos in your PS3 - you have to convert the files to a file supported by PS3.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

No sound when i download to windows movie maker-S630

I have the same problem with playing videos from my Samsung Digimax S600 on Windows Vista. The audio plays fine on the camera, but not in Windows Media Player. The only solution I've found is to play the videos in Quicktime...then the sound works just fine. Hope this helps.
