Cannot view the movies I made on my camera and downloaded to my Vista PC

They show up as movie files, but won't let me play. Tried to download V7.4 of quicktime, but then says it is not compatible with my Win 32 system. What gives ?

I assume you can view them in you camera, right? If not, the following solution will not help.

The .MOV Apple QuickTime format Panasonic uses for its camera movie clips cause problem on with viewing, as seen from several other problem posts here and the net.

Some computer use a Win 32Bit operating system, other better ones use a Win 64. It is hard to believe QuickTime would let you load a 64bit version into a 32bit OS, or vice versa. But who knows. Rather double clicking on te file name itself, open QuickTime, then go to File Open and Browse to the file and select it that was. If this doesn't work, go to QuickTime website and try their User Forums first to ask a question or find a thread talking about movie files not playing. Else, CONTACT website and ask question. Post any solution here for readers.

I have shot several movies on different cards with my Powershot SX200IS. When I plug the camera directly into my computer, I can view the movies. But I cannot get them to download on to my computer. It...


What program are you using to download the pics? Is it the same program you are trying to download the videos to? It probably only handles still photos, not movies. You could use a card reader and download the videos to a folder you create on your desktop and then use a program like Windows Media player or something that came with your camera to watch them. Sending videos to others through e-mail is discouraged. They are extremely large files, take forever to upload, forever to download (especially if your friends have a dial-up connection), and some ISP's won't even permit the upload or download because of the size. To share, burn the videos to DVD and pass them out to friends or upload the videos to an online site that your friends can log onto.

Can only download photos and not movies


What is the file extension of those movies downloaded from your camera? Make sure they are supported by your computer. Try to use Windows Media Player.

Movies taken with camera can't be viewed once on pc


It sounds like you need to download the codec to be able to play back the video. It'll be xVid or something like that. I'm not entirely sure what you need, but it definitely sounds like a missing codec.

Importing movie onto PC with Vista


I think you should install a software program that has the capability of opening mov file. This would become a plug-in for other programs and enable them to interpret it as mov file. or click on your movie file from camera and change its properties to be opened by a certain software that can open mov file and use it as the default program to open that file.

Downloading movies from PowerShot SD850 IS to Mac G5


Sounds like you are watching the thumbnails but the files are still on the camera... try downloading/transfering via iphoto.. the files should show up in your iphoto library and if you double click them, it will launch quicktime and allow you to play it...
let me know if that gets you there...
