I had the same issue with my new ultra hd and my 2008 imac. Basically, I just downloaded flipshare from pure digital's website and all is good. Another problem I have run into is that when I first plug the camera in, it asks if I want to update the cameras software, when I click 'yes', it gives the error, "unable to update camera software."
Last but least, Imovie 08 gives an error when I try to import the movies. No biggie, I just double click on the "dcim" folder in the flip video folder of the camera and I can drag the videos to my desktop, then into Imovie.
So far, not the seamless experience I was expecting, as this unit is supposed to be 100% compatible with mac's.

Flipshare won't install!!!


Hi,
The failure appears to be occurring because the installation script cannot obtain Scripting.FileSystemObject. This is most likely due to registrations belonging to your Windows ScrRun.dll being missing from your machine - and the problem may be specific to your machine configuration.


Click on the orb/start menu and type in the search box regsvr32.exe scrrun.dll

If the fix is successful
try running the install again.



Regards.

FlipShare software won't install


I had the same problem when plugging my Flip into the USB port. Kept saying a file was corrupted. I went to the Pure Digital Technologies website and downloaded the upgrade/program directly and it installed fine. You might try that if you already haven't.

How to uninstall flip share form my flip video camcorder


On Windows, if you change your library location and then uninstall and re-install FlipShare, FlipShare will not remember where you changed your library location to and will create a new library in the default My Documents location. To restore contents of your library you should shutdown FlipShare, delete the 'FlipShare.db' file located in the 'My Documents>My Videos>FlipShare Data>' folder, re-launch FlipShare, select the option to 'Browse' for you library and select the location of your library. On the Mac, FlipShare will remember where you changed your library location to.
Or go into controll panel and remove from there

Trying to use movies saved in flipshare in movie maker want to save the flipshare files as mpeg, flipshare is saving them as jpeg How do I save the videos in flipshare as mpeg...why are they saving as...


Flip video camcorder has made its name world wide. It's very creative, cool and super simple. You can email videos (it will automatically compress and reformat the video to an acceptable size), save videos locally (you can organize them by creating folders), share videos online via AOL and edit them as well. It also has very simple yet functional video editing capacity; the four family members Flip Mino, Flip Mino HD, Flip Ultra and Flip Ultra HD will definitely meet demands of a large quantity of population with different preference.

At the time we are happy for ourselves for having purchased it to make some memorable videos that we can share in a blink of the eye with our friends and family. We find there is something flip video just can’t do, flip video produces h.264 and mp4 files. But some one would prefer the. Mpeg file as output format. Is there a shortcut to convert flip to mpeg?

Flip video to mpeg converter is a very powerful and easy-to-use Flip Video to mpeg video converter app. It can convert any Flip video to mpeg with flexible settings and high conversion speed. The program supports Flip Mino, Flip Mino HD, Flip Ultra and Flip Ultra HD. Flip video to mpeg converter allows you to convert multiple video files at a time, trim your video files to capture your favorite video clips, crop movie video, and set movie effects and so on.

Flip share video application unexpectedly quits


Solved - I had the same problem.

The original "Flip Video For PC" software that came preinstalled on my Flip worked fine. But after being nagged to "upgrade" to FlipShare, I experienced the same crash problem mentioned here. Even worse, the FlipShare installation nuked the original program files from the Flip!

In my case, I think my computer's processor did not meet the minimum system requirements of the newer FlipShare software. The original "Flip Video For PC" software requires a 2Ghz P4 or higher; the FlipShare software says it requires a dual-core 4Ghz or higher. So when the FlipShare software tries to load the ippvideodecoder.ax module on an under-powered processor, it just crashes. Bad design.

I bet that most of the people posting this same problem here have processors that are "borderline".

Anyway, here's how to get the original Flip Video software back and re-install it on your computer:

Disclaimer: I assume no responsibility if you screw up your Flip or lose your videos. I can only tell you this method worked for me.

1) Use Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs to uninstall FlipShare and 3vix.

2) Download "Flip Video For PC" v3.7 from here:
http://www.theflip.com/app/prius/37/update/

3) Follow the written instructions here for formatting your Flip and reinstalling the software:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYc8N3dmxhU

Important: this guy tells you how to back up any existing videos on your Flip BEFORE you format it.

After formatting, I had some initial trouble with the installation not finding my (empty) Flip. Here's a workaround: the installation creates a folder called "FlipVideo Updater Support Files", and within that a subfolder called "files_to_install". Copy the entire contents of that subfolder to the root of your Flip. Re-run the installation and it should now be recognized.

4) Bonus: once you've got the old software reinstalled and working, you may want to disable the annoying "Upgrade To FlipShare" nag screen that bugs you every time you run the software. Simply browse your Flip and delete the following file:

[drive letter]\System\VIEWER\PD\checkForUpdate.txt

No more nag screen!

I hope this info is helpful to those who experienced the same problem. Flip tech support people are absolutely clueless.

best,
JohnB
