Query on videos taken on camera

Hello - wondering if someone can help me with my query. when i take a video on my camera, it saves two files - an AVI file and a THM file. i would like to know what the THM file is. ie.if I transfer the file to another location, do I need to retain this THM file? I've been deleting them out but not sure if that is the right thing to do. Looking for some advice.

Thanks, Annette

It's not necessary. It's the thumbnail picture file (those tiny mini pictures that let you preview what each file is when perusing a folder). If the file is missing, and you select "view thumbnails" in your folder menu, your computer will automatically recreate them if needed.

When you are recording the file is being saved temporarily by default, when you stop recording, the file is saved.
If the bytes are o, the .avi file is unavailable.

Aunsoft VRO to AVI Converter - Convert VRO Videos to AVI


Best Way to Deinterlace VRO Videos - Convert VRO to AVI <br /><br />.VRO files are created by DVD video recorders or camcorders with Mini-DVD disc using the DVD-VR format. The disc has a 'VR_MOVIE.VRO' file, containing the raw audio and video data for all video recordings. The recording metadata along with navigation data are stored in the 'VR_MANGR.IFO' file. A backup copy of this file (VR_MANGR.BUP) is presented as well. VRO Codecs: MPEG2, same as VOB but uncompressed raw video and audio. So in some cases you can treat the VRO files just like .VOB files, but in many cases you can not use, play or edit VRO file easily. <br /><br />Audio Video Interleave (AVI) is a means of digitally storing audio and video media content in a file for playback. AVI-formatted files employ the file extension .avi. The header portion of the AVI-formatted file provides details about the file contents, such as width, height, and frame rate, while the chunks of information store the actual audio and video data. A key advantage of AVI format is its ability to be played on the majority of computers worldwide. <br /><br />With Aunsoft <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/video-converter/">Best VRO File Converter</a></b>, we can convert VRO file to AVI with best quality, fastest converting speed, excellent A/V sync and so on. And we also can use the VRO File Converter to convert VRO file to friendly video formats just like mpg, wmv, mkv, mp4, mov, mpeg, dv, etc for playing on iPad, iPod, iPhone 4, iTunes, QuickTime, PSP, Apple TV, Android Phones, etc so that we can watch our favorite VRO conversion file everywhere. <br /><br />Follow the step to <b>convert VRO files to AVI</b> now. <br /><br />Step 1: Free download, install and launch <b><a href="http://download.aunsoft.com/video_converter/videoconverter_setup.exe">best VRO to AVI Converter</a></b>. <br /><br />Step 2: Click "Add" to browse the documents for the VRO videos you want to convert from DVD Recorder or Mini-DVD Disc. You can add more than one file at a time. <br /><br />Step 3: In the drop down list menu of "Format", please select the output video format you want to get. You want to convert VRO videos to AVI, just select AVI. Then specify a location on your computer where the new file should be saved. <br /> <br />Tip: If you want to trim or crop your VRO files and get the wanted part or area, if you want to replace original audio and add background music to the VRO videos, if you want to deinterlace, remove interlaces or image noises of the videos, please click "Edit" to get into editor windows and start your DIY process. <br /><br />Step 5: Click "Convert" to begin converting the VRO to AVI files. Quickly you could get your converted files with high quality. <br /><br />Now wish you have already known how to convert VRO files from DVD Recorders or Mini-DVD Discs to AVI.

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.

.thm video files


Here is some info from fileinfo.com :
Video thumbnails are often created on digital video cameras and digital cameras that record video; THM files may or may not be transferred to the computer depending on what software is used to import the video; each THM file shares the same filename as the video clip it represents, i.e. "clip001.avi" and clip001.thm."

HOW TO OPEN FILES WITH THM EXTENSION


THM is a video thumbnail. Chances are pretty good that there is another file on the storage media (memory card?) that you can actually view. Check for an AVI or MPG file as well.

Otherwise, the THM SHOULD be viewable in any standard video player. I highly recommend GOM player.
