No audio in my video clips

After I shoot video with my camera I can play it back on my camera just fine, but when I transfer the .avi file to my computer there is no sound when I play it. I made sure that my speakers were on and my computer was working right, but I still didn't get any sound. I know that the camera originally recorded sound becuase the video plays just fine on the camera. I tried transfering the video to my computer by using the USB and then finally just plugging the memory card directly into the computer, but only the video plays.

Re: no audio in my video clips

Try putting the vid file plus the audio file which transfers to your computer together under something like microsoft movie maker and blend them together that way. then it will play together under windows media player not just divx

Canon ixus camera says my movie clip is an error

The video files your particular camera makes should be AVI format. What media player are you using? I've heard of problems playing AVI files with Windows Media Player.
Try using a different media player like VLC or Winamp. There are also video format conversion programs out there for free. I use anyvideoconverter for that. You can get all of those programs from's download center.

How to convert MVI to AVI file for edit in Pinnacle Studio?

Some Canon digital still cameras (Powershot A75, A63, S410 etc), are capable of shooting a limited amount of video, since there is no tape, it is saved as an MVI file format. However, the MVI file format is not compatible with other programs. Even windows media player refuse to play MVI file. Besides, editing software like Pinnacle Studio and Windows movie maker do not work with the format. Because of this, the files need to be converted to a format that is more widely used, such as AVI so that these videos shot with still camera can be played and edited as easily as other common videos. This guide is to tell how to do that.
Software you'll Need: Pavtube Video Converter

Step 1. Download Pavtube Video Converter, and follow the prompts to install the program. Click "Finish" when the installation is complete, and Pavtube Video Converter will launch automatically.

Step 2. Click “Add” to load MVI files or directly drag the files into file list. By default, the files are selected. If you would like to join all the selected files together, check the box of Merge into one. You could view the files in preview window, simply highlight the file and click play button.

Step 3. Click “Format” bar to determine output format. Follow Common Video-> AVI Video (*.avi)/ DivX AVI(*.avi). Click “Settings” if you’d like to customize advanced audio and video parameters like Video Codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, Audio codec, sampling rate, bit rate, channels. Do not forget to click “OK” to confirm your settings. Then type in a desired output location in the "Output" box.
Step 4. Click "Convert” to start converting MVI files to AVI. You could set auto shutdown in progress window or leave it there and come back later. After conversion you could edit the converted video in Pinnacle Studio, and make a film out of it or burn it onto DVD.

Trying to play off-camera stored video, when replaced onto SD card in camera

Did you change the file name on the original video? Are you able to put the video back onto the camera? If you changed the file name, you can't put it back onto the camera. It also needs to be in AVI format which is the video format that the camera records in.

Hope this helps!

Transferring PC videos TO a Sony Cybershot?

It probably won't work but here is something to try: Make a short video clip with the camera. Then look at the memory stick with the computer to find out the name of the video and what folder it is in. If the camera makes .avi videos, you will have to convert your home videos to the .avi format. Then rename the video to a name similar to the one the camera made. i.e. If the camera named its video Vid00023.avi, then you should rename you home video to something like Vid00034.avi. Then put your video in the exact same folder where the camera put its video. That will give it a chance to be recognized by the camera. But I doubt it will play in the camera.
