Video won't play on computer

Hi
Bought my Canon 880is digital camera at Hong Kong.
The video plays well on the camera but can't play in any other computers here in U S.
The video file has a .mov extention

I tried to open the video file with all the major video
player programs.
from: GOM Player---''you don't have necessary codec to play''
QuickTime Player----''required compresser could not be found''
Windows Media Player--''.mov is not recognised ''

I used NTSC setting in the camera and even tried PAL setting.

thanks

Media player classic is the best solution for such type of videos. it is freely availabe on internet and free to download. use lattest codec for more complex videos.

good time

You are likely missing a required codec to play the file. Try using G-spot to identify which codec you need, this will also tell you if it is installed on your machine. If it is not, of course you go find and install it and all will be well. If G-spot says you already have it installed, try importing the file into Quicktime or WMP, or renaming the extension, or just post again here and let's figure something else to try.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, File extension MOV is most commonly associated with a QuickTime Video Clip. Download, install, update and run Apple Quicktime.

Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

I bought my canon digital 1XUS 86015 in Hong Kong and didn't notice the manual was in Chinese. Is there a free English one available. I know nothing about my camera.


Your camera is an Ixus 860 IS which is also known as the SD870 IS in the USA. Here is a link to the PDF user manual on the Canon website:

http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/1/0900009921/01/PSSD870IS_IXUS860IS_CUG_EN.pdf

and here is the Canon Brochures and Manuals page for your camera:

I have the Nikon coolpix 710, which was brought in Hong Kong When I click the play button, to view the pictures on the camera, it shows the last picture and the camera freezes up (not able to view any of...


Hello David,

First thing is "Hong Kong", while your abroad you really need to look at the technologies. Especially from China, you need to make sure if its authentic or if its a fake.

Try to remove the battery for 5-20min, at 5min intervals. While you do this also take off the Memorycard just so it doesn't do anything to your pictures.

As long as the pictures are still in the card, you can get a external memory card reader to view the pictures on your laptop/computer.

I'm just thinking it has something to do with the battery or something inside got jammed. Since you bought it internationally it might be hard to get it fixed for free from warranty. You should check with Nikon to see if they allow international warranties.

Hope this help.

I bought a Touchscreen MP4 Player + Video Camera 8GB from Hong Kong and i cannot figure out how to upload music onto it. It doesn't use iTunes, it uses Windows Media Player. Can you help me get music onto...


Most of the Hong Kong MP3/4/5 and even 6 players merely require plugging them into the computer via a supplied USB cable. You would then merely click on "My Computer" and the player should show up as a hard drive. If you double click on this drive, you may see a folder labeled "MUSIC". If so, just drag and drop your MP3 music files into this folder. Similarly do the same goes for VIDEOS and PICTURES. The exception being that MP4 players usually require videos to be converted to RM or RMVB format (MP5 players usually play most formats without conversion).

Brand new camera will not work


Can you return it or exchange it? That would be the best thing to do. I've bought stuff from Hong Kong, but found it doesn't take long before things start going wrong in some cases, depends on the item. There are some serious issues going on with this camera, and it wouldn't be worth the cost of having it repaired. Get your money back, if you can, and return it. Look for a name brand next time, at least you can get parts for them off ebay and the net. Good luck.
