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 http://n.ethz.ch/student/naegelic/download/ 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.

The .MOV files are apple quicktime files. you can download quicktime or install K-lite codec pack, which will let you open the files in Windows Media player. It may even let edit them in Windows Movie-maker. Cheers.

Black Videos


Alexanderia,

Your camera records video in "Quicktime" format. The reason you aren't getting video, is because the program you are using to watch the video cannot recognize the video.

Simply download quicktime. You can get the free version here:
http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/

Choose the top option for the quicktime player, or the bottom option if you would like "itunes" with it. It's up to you.

After installing quicktime, you may need to "right click" your video and choose "open with". You can then choose "quicktime"

You should be able to see and hear your video!

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...


Hi!

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 www.videolan.org. 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!

Panasonic tz5 movie files will not play in Windows only Quicktime


If the movies are recorded as .avi, then you will have to use QuickTime. One way to avoid having to select QuickTime each time is to hold the SHIFT key, right click over the video file and select "Open With". Now select QuickTime (otherwise select other programs) and scroll to QuickTime from the list and you should see a check box at the end of the list and make sure its checked. Here is a screen shot:

Now click OK and the next time you open the camera movie files, it will automatically open in QuickTime.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
