Viewing avi file

Hi there, Just bought this the IXUS 65 - very nice for still shots. I have taken a couple of movies, downloaded them to XP laptop, and now want to play them. Both Windows Media player and Quicktime play very very jerkily with big bits missing. How do I play successfully? Thanks Muzza

Re: Viewing avi file

Possibly won't solve your immediate problem, but you could put it onto a memory stick and buy a dvd player with a usb port and watch it through that, £27 in asda for the cheapest player, or £50 if you want to push the boat out. My technical knowledge is fairly non existant i admit freely and i may be telling you something you already know, but have you tried watching your movies through MPCstar or vlc media players? Hope this helps and i haven't made myself look a comnplete nerk on my first visit.

Re: Viewing avi file

This is a memory issue with the laptop- not enough RAM memory- unless you want to spend a fortune on upgrading your Lappie nothing you can do. Except maybe burn to CD and try on a domestic DVD player

Tips: How to burn AVI files (torrent/digital Camera videos) to DVD on Windows 7

Do you like to shot videos with your favorite digital camera to capture and keep every happy moment in your life? And do you never miss any movies which can be free downloaded from torrent sites, such as Pirate Bay, Vuze, etc. to fully enjoy digital life? That's wonderful digital experience, but to keep these movies and life memory forever is suffering, isn't it? 'Cause either your digital camera's memory or your PC hardware has a limit, so many digital lovers keep asking how to burn digital Camera/torrent files to DVD:

Q1: My torrent downloads are always in the .avi format. I would like to play these movies in a regular DVD player, but I don't know how to burn the DVD on my computer (running on Windows 7).
Q2: I've shot the movie myself using a camera, it is a two hour long .avi file. All I want is to be able to shove it in the DVD player (in the living room) and for it to automatically play.

A: That's true, most videos shot by digital camera, and most free downloaded movies from torrent are in AVI formats. A good and easy way to keep these videos and movies forever is to burn AVI files to DVD which makes easier for you to watch these videos on your DVD player without any hitch. That's easy to finish the whole task, first of all, let's look at all the things you will need to burn AVI movies to a DVD.

1. Things You'll Need to burn AVI files to DVD AVI to DVD Burner software
A black DVD disc
A PC running on Windows OS (including the latest Windows7)
A PC with DVD Burner

2. How to find a good AVI to DVD Burner?
Actually, there are a lot of AVI to DVD conversion software, please never get a one without free trying first. Before making a purchase decision, you can get recommendations from professionals, friends, etc. And the most import thing is to get a free trail by yourself. In fact, I have tried a lot of such software, but for the sake of simplicity and stability, I will present you such a conversion tool which works well to convert AVI format to DVD on windows 7.

3. Steps to burn AVI files to a DVD on windows 7

Step 1: Free download AVI to DVD Burner
Please free download this Windows 7 AVI to DVD Burner, install and run it. And insert a DVD disc to your PC.

Step 2: Add AVI files
Add AVI videos or movies by clicking "Add Video" button.


Step 3:Set DVD menu
Select your AVI files, then hit "Burn DVD" button at the bottom of the interface, and then check "Next", you can select DVD menu from built-in "Menu Template", and you can set background music and picture for your DVD menu by checking the related option to customize your DVD menu. Here I set the background picture by adding a picture from your PC. If you want to preview your DVD movies, you can click "Play" to make a preview.


Step 4: Start to burn AVI files to DVD
After everything is done, you can click "Next" to select your DVD burner from "Burn to" option. Then, you can hit "Start" to burn AVI files to DVD.


Here below is the explanation of TV Standard:

That's all, after the conversion is done, you can watch your torrent movies or digital camera videos on your DVD player.

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.
