Did you record the video from this camera itself or transferred from another device?

How do i make my Canon PowerShot A580 Digital Camera plays downloaded videos from the internet? The camera says "Unidentified Images" when I place the images/videos.


I'm afraid that Isn't possible.
Cameras aren't portable media players; the built in software that cameras have can read only a very limited number of file types and configurations.
Usually a camera can read only what it had written to the memory; if you open a file on the camera and make even a minor modification using a computer, it will never read that file again.

Go to http://www.download.com/1770-2001_4-0.html?query=klite+media&tag=srch&searchtype=downloads

and download the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 4.2.5 and install it.

This will help you in playing the MVI file in Windows media player. Moreover the codec I provided above will also help you in playing all kinds of DVD movie in Windows Media Player.

Happy Halloween Day.

VIDEO FILES OF CANON SX10 IS NOT PLAYING IN WMP


H264 is a "mov." file. Windows media player11 and Power DVD 9 do not support this type of file. If you don't like QuickTime, there are many free media players that will support it (VLC is a good one). You could convert the mov. file to an avi. file with a video converter program. Then your avi. format movie will play in WMP

I think I can help you with this as I was baffled by the same problem myself.
All Samsung Digimax cameras use very high quality AVI (MJPEG) to record video.
In order to view this on your pc you need the Xvid codec which is available FREE here:
http://www.xvidmovies.com/codec/
You may also benefit from having the FREE divx codec package available at:
http://www.divx.com/en/downloads/postdownload/divx/win
I think you'll find that this will solve your problem.
Good luck!

Not able to watch video shoots on my PC (windows XP 2000) after transferring from camera


The problem is exactly as described in the message. Windows media player will not playback files of the type .MOV unless you revert back to WMP version 6.4 (current version is WMP 11) and then install the appropriate codec which is available on this link; http://www.free-codecs.com/download/QuickTime_Alternative.htm Much easier and better way to play back files of this type you need different player software - the best being "Quicktime" which you can download for free from this link; http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/win.html If you want a user manual for your camera go to this link; http://www.retrevo.com/search?q=Nikon+L3&terms=review+manual and click where it says "download pdf" I hope this helps, please ask again if you need any help with installing quicktime, enjoy your movies :)
