The files on your camcorder should be mpeg files, unless you finalized the disc. A finalized disc should play on any dvd player. DVD-R disc work with all DVD players, DVD+R disc only work with some DVD players.

Download for my DVD player


You say you are downloading videos? If you are talking about YouTube videos you will need a program that can capture the streaming video that YouTube sends to you; there are dozens of programs out there that will do this, just Google "Youtube Video Download". This will give you many options to choose from. Once you have the video file captured you will have to decide how to watch it. If you plan to watch it via your DVD player you can use a DVD authoring program to convert the files into the MPEG2 format and then create the proper VOB files and burn them to a DVD. If you have a newer DVD player or, even better, a BluRay player you may be able to play the captured video files without creating a DVD. You will have to figure out what video file formats your player can read. Once you know which formats then, when you capture the Youtube files, make sure you save them in one of the supported formats. Then you will only have to burn these files to a DVD to play them, skipping all the work of converting to MPEG2 and authoring a proper DVD. If your player has a USB port you just copy the files to a USB Flash Drive to play them on any compatible player.

My fukuda dvd player plays video files (AVI) from flashdisk (USB) but... the sound is not smooth...


Most DVD players only accept MPEG-2 in standard VOBs. Some of the older standalone DVD players do not play AVI at all. Now some of the newer DVD players support AVI encoded with DivX. Look into the player manual, it'll tell you what formats are supported. If the DVD player does not support AVI, it will fail to play AVI files even if we have successfully burn AVI to DVD disc.

In order to successfully play all kinds of AVI files on any DVD player model, an all-in-one solution is to convert AVI to DVD player more compatible format.

Can not play vod file on computer


I assume you mean VOB. I have not heard of a VOD file...

If you have gotten your hands on a VOB file somehow, chances are they have been copied/extracted from a DVD. VOB stands for DVD Video Object and is the core file of a DVD containing the actual movie data, an MPEG movie stream and the supported audio.
To play the VOB files, you need to have a DVD player that supports VOB format. However, if you have the Windows Media Player (version 12 or higher) or VLC Media Player, it is good enough to play the file. Note that you will see a prompt telling you that it is an unsupported format, don't worry about it and just play it anyways. It will play just fine.
If you want to obtain the VOB file from a DVD for some reason, just open the DVD in Windows Explorer instead of playing it through a media player. The VOB file would most likely be under the VIDEO_TS folder. Some other files that you will also see in the folder are IFO and BUP. The IFO files are the information files containing meta data about the DVD and instructions for the DVD player on how to handle the disc. The BUP file is simply a backup copy of IFO files.
If you want to convert VOB file to AVI or a similar format, aviNET is a great tool to do that

Unable to read mkv and avi video files from usb drive on philips dvp5990 dvd player


what error does it give? mine reads avis fine, as long as theyre within resolution limits. same for windows media format. couldnt get the mkv files to work though. the usb drive has to be formatted fat32, ntfs does not seem to work. burning these files to dvd as a data disc is another option. lets you fit 10+ hours of video on the disc vs your standard 2 or 4 hour max limits.

Editing videos taken from canon dc100 camcorder


I see here that . . .

"The DC100 takes 3-inch Mini DVD-R/RW discs, and like most of its competitors, can fit about 20 minutes of best-quality video on one. If you choose to initialize a disc for playing in a standalone player, the camcorder writes standard VOB files; if you initialize for future editability, it records in the VRO format. Windows Media Player can play the latter if you rename the file with an MPG extension, however the aspect-ratio information gets lost--that info is encoded into a separate file--so 16:9 video will get squashed into 4:3. "

Cnet Reviews.

Your videos are recorded in the common DVD format called MP2.
They have the extention .MPG so if you copy the video files to your computer, and change the end of the filename from VOB, or VRO to an MPG then your software can recognize it as the MP2 format that it is.

There is a Windows XP program, called Windows Movie Maker, it can open your video files and provide you with most of the video editing tools.

Cheers.

How do I transfer the mini DVD to Movie Maker


With your Recorded DVD-R Disc "Finalized", and in the DVD player on your computer, you should be able to browse to your videos with Movie Maker.

In MovieMaker, on the left side where it lists:
Movie Tasks
1. Capture Video
Capture from Video device
Import video . . .

You want to "Import Video", by clicking that and browsing to the DVD-R to find what could be MPG files, or VOB files. They're both MP2 DVD format video and audio files.

Tip: Right Clicking in the Import Video Dialogue Box where the files are listed and selecting View / Thumbnails, will present a view of the scenes in each video.

Vidoes not compatible with PC.


The simplest way is to connect the AV cable from the DVD camcorder to a video card, which will convert analogue to digital ( such as Dazzle Digital Video Creator, which connects to a windows computer by a USB), play the video on the camcorder, and capture any clips you want with software such as Windows Movie Maker. You then have the Windows Media Audio/Video files on your computer.
