Question about VistaQuest DV-7 DV Camcorder

1 Answer

AVI formatted files behave as audio only

Got a new vistaquest dv7 camera for my son. When I transfer video files (recorded in either mpg or cif) to my laptop, they appear to be avi-formatted files (catalogued as pict001.avi for example), but when I attempt to open them, play them with windows media player, or edit them in windows movie maker or even the videoimpression 2 software the camera came with, they behave as audio files only. I can get the audio to work but no video appears. Movie maker recognizes them as audio files only. I tried everything I can think of.

    I have the same problem. I downloaded videos from the same camcorder unto my computer and, when played, they acted only as audio files. Where did the pictures go? Should I use a certain program to open these files for some reason? (other than windows media player which is the program that was used).

I use Format Factory, free software that converts to any format from MTS, can do basic editing such as joining files, trimming, resizing & audio adjustments. I use a card reader to transfer the files to computer, then load the files into Format Factory for conversion to AVI, MPG & other formats, which media player accepts.

How to deal with your camcorder video in more ways?

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.
