You will need to download codecs and delete any unwanted files or programs off your Hard Drive in order to have some space.

Also close any programs to free up Page Filing.

If you ran out of space while recording the video it might not have had a chance to "finalize" and therefore it cannot be viewed. Sory

Hi,
Real-time video capture takes up a tremendous amount of space. Delete the file and try making another shorter one and trying to play that.
You can use nCleaner to make more space on your computer, also.
Check to see what the output of any video capture is, on your video software too, to ensure it is an .avi file.

Hope this helps

    I misunderstood the problem, the file was still being written into the disk. http://www.repairvideo.com/  o... by darklord1 may solve the problem.




    you can't play such file in such way while its recording. a software should have came with the webcam to view and record video from the webcam so you would be able to view the video while recording in real time.

How do i install cam on my laptop?


hi,
DV cams, doesn't install, it is normally directly recognised as firewire cam (if what you want is to capture the recordings or live), you have to set in your capture program the right device...
now, if what you want is to use the hard disk function (memory stick) you have to light up the camera and then plug it in usb port, windows will recognize it as thumb drive (externat card reader )

How can i edit the video if i finish filming


Assuming that you want to do your video editing in the PC rather than on the tape.


1.Your PC must have video capture device(either built-in or add-on).
2.Properly set your video editing software to able to capture video form your device.
3.Connect your camera to your PC in regular manner,like when you connect it to your TV.
4.Have your camera in PLAYBACK mode.wind the tape to the beginning of the footage you want to capture.
5.Open your editing software.turn on capture mode.
6.Start capture.At the same time,start playing back the footage on the cam.
7.When all footage were captured,click stop capture.
8.Start your editing work.
9.when complete,save it to some uncompressed video format like *.avi for later burning to DVD or converting to other format.



For beginners,I recommend Windows Movie Maker video editing software that should come bundled in almost every computer.It's fast,simple but effective enough for home-movie work.



BTW forget the old-school Linear Editing (on the tape) thing.It's slow,complicate and much less flexible than Non-Linear method.

I want to copy video footage onto PC/Mac from Sonday Handycam


You will need a standard video/audio rca cable (has a video out connector and audio on left side of lens), and a tv tunner (check that it has the rca in) that you can get as either usb (better double check if you have a usb 2 port on computer as it might be needed for capturing the video) or as a pci card.
Ussually the tunner would have a software to "capture" the video to the computer. And you would need to put your cam on play mode and start "capturing" and stop both the software and cam when the video footage ends.
I recommend corel studio 12, as it is very easy to use. Basically with corel no know-how required. Simple choices. Another great sofware is dvdsanta.
This would be for the pc.
Best wishes!!




A mannual for the cammera can be downloaded from: http://www.nodevice.com/user_manual/sony/camcorders1/ccd-trv16e.html on the bottom of the page you need to type in the letters on the square and press download.

Why when i captured from camera the captured file


If you are talking about a hand held video camera it is your hand shaking, it becomes more apparent if yo zoom in on something very far away. If you camera is equipped with a video stabilizer function, make sure it is enabled. If you are talking about a web cam, make sure it is secure and there is no extreme vibration going on in the room. Even loud audio especially with a cranked up sub woofer could prvid eenough vibration to affect your video

Use of digital camera Lumix DMC-LS70 as a web cam.


Hello,
It will not work through USB like a standard webcam. Ls-70 only lets you access camera memory card/onboard memory when connected via USB.
However you could connect the camera video-out socket to a PC with graphics card with video capture function. Some cards with video capture work with skype (check this URL:
http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showtopic=41101 )
There are also various software solutions which can fool your webchat client into thinking that video capture stream is actually an output of a usb webcam. (Try google for "video capture into skype".
At the moment this seems to be the only easy way to use LS-70 as webcam.

Good luck,

Raf

How can i transfer videos from DCR-TRv 460E TOCOMPUTER


It is very simple. Install a Firewire (IEEE1394) card in PCI slot (if you don't have any video capture card) and connect DCR460E camcorder to PC through iLink cable. You need a video editing software like Ulead Video studio, Pinnacle studio or any other to be installed in your PC. Then go to capture mode of that programme and capture transfer video to PC hard disk. Windows movie maker is also do the same. For editing and better special effects you should use hihger versions of ulead or pinnacle. Thank you.
