JVC 3CCD Cam - Playback issue

Having problem with playback on PC.  MPEGs play fine but TOD extensions do not. How do I fix this? Do I have to change extensions?  Do I need to save the files differently?

Probably you Media Player does not support TOD formate.
It is very recent one so you need to look for new softwear.
The solution is easy
Tod file conversion, download the UNLEAD VIDEO STUDIO11.5 with the update other wise he will not work properly http://www.videohelp.com/tools/Ulead_Videostudio

http://www.ulead.co.uk/vs/features.htm
Run the program(ulead) go to Edit and on the right hand side of the screen you see icon of a folder open that and import your file (tod) when it's imported put it on the time line as well.
Now to converter to any kind of format you wish is very easy.
Open share icon right on the top next to audio icon and go to any format you wish to create.
For me I use adobe premier pro I need 720X576 I do this method.
I open in share folder the ---create video file-after I have lot of choose I select ---DV------after Pal (4:3) and I give name and destination all done.
Note:
Please don’t use DV----Pal (16:9) it will stretch the footage to much
When you import the file tod strait from your JVC will help to keep the same quality of your converted file.
Good Luck

JVC stores the video in files with a .MOD extension which are standard MPEG-2-TS files with Dolby Digital sound. Third-party editing applications should be able to edit them if the file extension is changed to .M2T and the application supports that format. ....

You can convert the .tod format to .avi format using the following tools

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, TOD is a JVC tapeless video format not readily recognizable/readable by a computer. However, there are programs that converts the files with .TOD extensions to AVI, Mpeg, DivX, VOB, WMV, MP4 and others. One example is TOD Converter.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

What kind of error message are you getting or won't they save in the first place. You may just need to convert them with a converter that you can find online for free but first let me know what error message if any, that you get when trying to play them and I will let you know what to do after that

I can playback the video/audio I have recorded fine on the camcorder itself, but when I view it on the PC it is all green/black and fuzzy. What is the problem?


If you got a JVC camcorder, or Panasonic camcorder or Canon MOD camcorder, you would have probably encountered such issue--- what to do with the MOD/TOD files----the God forsaken video format? And you want to convert the recorded .MOD file type to mpeg, avi, mkv, flv, mp4, wmv or whatever more common, so that you can put them on Youtube, Myspace, Google video and Hulu later on to share the camcorder video with your friends or more people? And there is another headache thing is that most major video editing suites seem to unwillingly accept the MOD/TOD format. Even windows video maker, I have to say it's too complicated to use

Someone successfully made it simply by changing the extension from .mod to mpg, but for most people, they just failed only to find there is no audio after the extension is changed, or the changed one doesn’t allow you to import these files into Windows movie maker, not to mention upload some video to Youtube.com or Facebook.

any alternativs? There is a very simple program that convert .mod NOT ONLY to mpg but many others like avi, mkv, flv, mp4, wmv, rm, rmvd, mov, dv, mg2 and swf. MOD converter is the one shoot all the trouble. This excellent mod conversion tool is not just a converter but also a video editing tool. From now on, with the MOD converter, you can enjoy your mod video on many media player, even on portable devices like blackberry, Gphone, PSP, Creative Zen,etc.

Share: How to import .tod files from JVC Everio HDD Camcorder to iMovie?

Requirements: iMovie (Part of the iLife 08 package)

Step 1: Connect the Everio to the Mac (Via USB)
Make sure you are powering the Everio from the mains before connecting your JVC Everio Camcorder.

Step 2: Playback on PC
Select “Playback on PC” on the Everio, once connected you will see the Everio HDD symbol appear on the desktop. The video files on the Everio are stored in the SD Folder/PRG***/MOV***.MOD.

Step 3: Open iMovie
Once you open iMovie, you will see that it recognizes the Everio straight away and will attempt to import your video.

You are now ready to use iMovie to edit your video files.

If need change .tod files to common video formats like mov, mp4, m4v, mpg, mpeg, dv, flv, avi, wmv, 3gp, mkv, mp3, aac, wma, m4a, etc. Mod Tod Video Converter for Mac is a good choice. The program can also convert mod tod to ipod, mod tod to iphone, tod to apple tv, tod to blackberry and more devices!

>>For Pictures- Select DCIM - Folder 101JVCSO or 100JVCSO - Drag and Drop to desktop - NO FILE CONVERSION NECESSARY

6. Change the file extension to .MPG

** If you find yourself having issues changing the file extension, open my computer... select tools... go to folder options.... un-check "Hide extension for known file types", check it back when your finished if you have kids.. I do for my computer.***

**You are simply creating copies of your files when you drag and drop you movies and pics***

These step will allow you to view back you movies using Windows Media Player until you get your software.

Continuous playback of files


me also, ok lets say that i already converted the tod files using powerdierctor express, i have converted already to mpeg, mpg. i have noticed that when i already starts editing my mpg clips, its looks like the video output is not good.

i found a secret or solution, about tod files, powerdirector5 express can't read it or open it right. lol, so funny, JVC budled this cyberlink softwares that can't relly help so much for editing movies, ok, copy first your movie from your hd7 using powercinema to your pc (TOD files). then use nero 9, for editing and fixing your movie it can read the tod files, and can play smoothly, not like powerexpress even do i have converted already the tod files to mpg, not smooth and the video output was not good,

ok thats what i found, the problem is im lacking transitions at nero, wew.

UpDated Firmware for the JVC GZ-HD7U.


There currently are no updates for the camcorder, they discontinued the camcorder shortly after it hit stores.. seemed to have alot of issues.
To the other user with the similar issues. The camcorder isn't the same as a DV camcorder and you may not be able to capture live. My suggestion would be to mount the camera using the USB cable and copying the video files from the camcorders internal hard drive to your desired location.
You may need an application to convert the videos, I suggest MpegStream Clip. They have a version for PC and Mac.

Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
