Re: Can't Play MPG

Crazy Mook absolutely nailed it with his solution, however you must save the file to the EXTMOV folder on the camera drive to be able to view it. It does not show as a playable file anywhere else.

Re: Can't Play MPG

Found solution that worked for me at:

Solution is to name your file with this convention...


where xxxx is 0001 or 0002 or etc.. so your first file would be named MOV_0001.MPG

I did this and it worked fine.

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.

Hi, forgive me if I'm telling you something you already know but if you shot video in DV mode then the iLink switch on the camera has to be set to DV. If you shot video in SD or HD mode then it must be set to MPEG2.

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.
