SOURCE: not able to watch video shoots on my PC (windows XP 2000) after transferring from camera

The problem is exactly as described in the message. Windows media player will not playback files of the type .MOV unless you revert back to WMP version 6.4 (current version is WMP 11) and then install the appropriate codec which is available on this link; Much easier and better way to play back files of this type you need different player software - the best being "Quicktime" which you can download for free from this link; If you want a user manual for your camera go to this link; and click where it says "download pdf" I hope this helps, please ask again if you need any help with installing quicktime, enjoy your movies :)

SOURCE: Import P90 Video to Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5

No sure what type of files your are recording, usually shown by the suffix to the file name ie:- .doc or .pdf and .jpg but when you have these issues its usually that you don't have the correct coding/decoding software on your PC.

I'd suggest you got to the "Filehippo.COM" website and download a programme called VLC media player, its got pretty well every thing loaded. Or if you want to beef up your current software there's another download:- K-Lite Codec Pack 5.90 (Full).

SOURCE: Sir, how to pause nikon

You can't. You can stop the current shoot, and then start another one. You'll end up with two video clips, which can then be joined together using video editing software on a computer. Remember that the L20 isn't really a video camera, but a still camera with video features grafted on.

What do all the symbols on a roku remote do

Which remote do you have? The * symbol is used to delete a channel that you no longer wantThe three buttons that look the same as on a VCR remote operate similarly. The pause / resume button will pause and resume so if you have to answer the phone or check on the baby, you can use the pause / resume button so you won't miss anything The fast forward and reverse button works on some movies, but not all.

Transcode Nikon D7000 MOV to Apple ProRes for editing on FCP X

Import Nikon D7000 MOV footage to FCP X-Convert MOV to ProRes 422 HQ

I have a Nikon D7000, which shoots HD MOV Movies. Last week I shot many videos with it on my friend's birthday party and wanted to edit them before sharing them to vimeo. I copied the movies from Nikon D7000 to Mac and imported them to FCP X for editing, but I failed because the MOV movies of Nikon D7000 were not compatible with FCP X. I goggled on the Internet and found Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac, which supports Nikon D7000 MOV. I tried it and successfully convert Nikon D7000 MOV recordings to Apple ProRes, which is supported by FCP X.

Here's a quick guide on how to Convert Nikon D7000 MOV files to Apple ProRes 422 for editing on FCP X.

1. Load Nikon D7000 MOV videos to Aunsoft VideoConverter for Mac
Before this step, please Connect Nikon D7000 to Mac and Transfer Nikon MOV Video files to Mac or hard disk from outside, then launch Video Converter for Mac.

Click the "Add" button to import the video files into the program, then you will see an interface as below.

2. Choose Apple ProRes as its output format and set where to store the movie.
Click the "format" option, choose "Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*mov)" under "Final Cut Pro" as its output format. Click "Browse" to choose where you want to store the converted ProRes movies.

3. Export Apple ProRes 422(HQ) movies for editing on FCP X
After setting the output format and destination, click the button "Convert" and conversion starts immediately. After only a few minutes,
you can Editing Apple ProRes 422(HQ) on FCP X.

If you want to backup HD videos to hard drive or watch them on iPhone and ipad with smaller size but original quality, iMedia Converter for Mac will help you.

I have a Nikon coolpix P520 and when I play a video there is no sound. What could be wrong...

You should be getting sound, try adjusting volume. This is done with the zoom button(T/W).
Sound is not recorded in HS mode.

How do I remove video icon

That means the camera is recording normally. Stop recording by pressing the record button. If that doesn't fix it for you, try resetting the camera to factory default options.

While recording can i make a pause temporarily


This is a very irritating problem with the D-90 in Video mode.

In fact, Nikon has done a really poor job with it's video function in its very, very good still cameras.

I have an Olympus that cost less than 1/4 what I paid for my Nikon D-90 and it's video quality and zoom capability is 20 times better than Nikon while it's function as a still camera is almost equal to Nikon.

I can do far more with the Nikon but do I really need to?

The only thing you can do in video mode is stop shooting. Then you have to refocus before you can shoot the next video clip. This takes tine as has caused me to miss good shots because I could not simply pause and resume shooting at the same lens setting I had been using.

Since I shoot nearly as much video as I do still stuff, I should have bought a different which does have good video capability. If I had invested the same amount of money in an Olympus that I have in my Nikon, I'd wager that I'd have better video capability and high quality still capability as well. And Olympus has a great electronic zoom and autofocus that beats Nikon hands down.

In the end, if you want decent video capability in a still camera, Nikon is not the way to go unless they've improved enormously since coming out with the D-90.

Record video not have pause button

Very few cameras do. Videos are meant to be shot and then edited and scenes spliced together, often out of the sequence in which they were shot.

To "pause" a video, simply stop shooting. To "unpause," resume shooting. Then use a video editing program on a computer to splice them together. You might also want to put a title at the beginning, add credits at the end, add a musical soundtrack, etc.

Video shot with nikon one onto card will not play on computer

To play all the different media files cameras can make your computer needs software.
If you have installed Nikon ViewNX(2) on your PC, that program should be able to play the Nikon video format. You also can use that software to import the Photos and Videos from the camera to the computer.

Pausing a shot in video mode( to say take a toilet break)

The camera creates a new file each time a video clip is started (as you have noticed). You can't string them together in the camera. You can put them together in computer software however.

How do I pause while recording?

As far as I can tell, and yes the documentation is skimpy, when you press the 'record/play' button the video recording pauses. Make sure you press the video icon button, not the 'record/play' button to get it started again. If you press the 'record/play' button, it goes into a 'play back' mode.

Hope this helps...
