Question about Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera
I got the camera for Christmas and cannot get the videos to play, on anything but the camera's browser.
Any ideas on how to change the videos from MVI format to AVI?

They are AVI's, it's just that there filename begins with MVI. If you can view there filename extensions, you'll see ".avi". The problem you're experiencing is that Canon videos use the MJPEG codec video compression scheme. This codec comes with Windows XP and better, but is not a default for Windows 98 or earlier.
Before going out on the web looking for MJPEG codecs, would first ask if you have installed the software disk that came with your camera? If not, get out the disk and do so, it should install the needed codec on your computer. But if this doesn't work for you, here's some suggestions from other people with the same problem:
