Re: downloading video clips

HITESH--Canon videos are saved as AVI files. longhair--How do you transfer the videos to your computer? With a USB cable? Try using a card reader instead--you might have a problem with the cable. Also, try reformating a spare memory card (like the small-capacity card that came with the camera) and putting a short video on it, then download it. If that works but the videos on your main card don't then you could have a bad memory card. Unfortunately, reformating your main card might clear up the defect but will lose the videos.

Video clips

Is the RAM the same on both computers? Sounds like one has less RAM and therefore not enough processing power to run the video smoothly.

Panasonic Digital camera DMC TZ3 Movie mode works and plays back on camera. When I import to Picassa they are stills. not movie clips

Picassa is a still photo software program. It does not work with videos. Try opening you videos in Quicktime. It's a free download if you don't have it already.

Yes, the Panasonic software will play your videos. So will the free version of Quicktime (it might already be on your computer). Try opening the video and double-clicking on might play with no further action from you.

Computer cannot read and play the .mp4 video files from my Sanyo XActi CMOS 1920X 1080 .Is there a software I can download from the net?


This is what the Sanyo CG9 Users Manual has to say about viewing videos taken with the camera:

"About video clip files recorded with this camera
You can use Apple’s QuickTime to play back video clips on a computer.
Playback may be possible using other software that supports the ISO
standard MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 (AAC audio)."

There are many ways to view mpeg-4 videos, but the one that is recommended for your camera from the CG9 support webpage is apple's quicktime available from apple here.

Can't dowload vedio clip from CANON PowerShot A550

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos, and especially the much larger video files. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Downloading Movies

What type of software are you using for download?

If you use Picasa to manage all of your photo albums on your PC including album management, print, sharing, editing (enhance, red eye removal etc) it will take care of the import process for both photos and videos.

Once the video has been import you can easily upload it from Picasa to Google Video, email it or post to a blog.

Your Camera records sound but does not play it back on the device. Go to and download the driver for your camera. Install it on your pc and you should have sound when playing video in windows media.

Movies shot on FUJI's digital cameras are recorded in Motion JPEG format and can be played back using QuickTime version 3.0 or later. (You can download QuickTime from the Apple Computer site). To play back movies in Windows Media Player, download and install DirectX 8.0 or later from the DirectX website. Let us know if it fix your problem,or you need for more help. Good luck !!
