It sounds like your computer doesn't have an MPEG-2 CODEC installed. Windows doesn't come with one on its own, you generally have to have something else installed, like a DVD player application WITH a DirectShow MPEG-2 filter. That's the usual reason for a video file playing audio-only... the video CODEC is missing.
You would think this would be on the disc that comes with the camcorder. Do they have any video player or editor of their own? Did you try it?
Anyway, you can get a free (open source) DirectShow MPEG-2 filter here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/gplmpgdec. Download and install this, and... assuming you're using a compatible version of Windows, you will probably be able to play back the video in Windows Media Player.
In the future, it's a good idea to indicate things like the computer OS you're using, version, the kinds of programs you're trying to use, etc. That will help folks like me pinpoint your specific issue.
I am wrting in regards to my Sony Handycam DCR-HC36. I am having problems with the Picture Package software when I try to load my video. When I try to transfer my videos (from my Handycam) to my Pesonal Computer, the picture package(software) menu does not appear on my PC(The picture package software is already installed).
Everytime I try to click on the Picture Package Icon on my desktop, there is a pop-up that says I "must install Macromedia Flash Player for Application to continue".
I went ahead and installed the Adobe (Macromedia) Flash Player and it still doesn't work when I try to click on the Picture Package Icon. The pop-up still comes up. I also, re-installed some of the requirements for the for the camera to work such as Direct X and Windows Media Player.
The problem is most likely within my PC(maybe I'm missing another type of software???), what do you think are my options in resolving this matter?
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.
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.
