Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR82 Camcorder
I can record videos and play them back on the computer without difficulty. I can download them to the computer. However, when I try to play back the downloaded version, I only have audio -- no video. Anyone else have this problem or any solutions?
It sounds like your computer doesn't have an MPEG-2 CODEC installed. Windows doesn't come with one on its own, you generally have to have something else installed, like a DVD player application WITH a DirectShow MPEG-2 filter. That's the usual reason for a video file playing audio-only... the video CODEC is missing.
You would think this would be on the disc that comes with the camcorder. Do they have any video player or editor of their own? Did you try it?
Anyway, you can get a free (open source) DirectShow MPEG-2 filter here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/gplmpgdec. Download and install this, and... assuming you're using a compatible version of Windows, you will probably be able to play back the video in Windows Media Player.
In the future, it's a good idea to indicate things like the computer OS you're using, version, the kinds of programs you're trying to use, etc. That will help folks like me pinpoint your specific issue.
