I have a finepix f30 which allows me to record mini video clips and I wanted to know how I can download the video clips onto my computer. When I upload my pictures onto the computer my video clips appear as pictures and I am not able to watch them or open them up with video players. If you could help me out I would appreciate it.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
Compact digital cameras such as this do not have high quality audio recording capabilities.
Given that the quality won't be very good to begin with, some things to watch out for when you are recording video:
Get as close to the subject as possible.
Make sure that your do not obstruct the microphone while you are recording.
From the Fuji web page for this camera, you can see that the microphone is on the lower-right of the front of the camera. Make sure that your hand, fingers, and clothing do not obstruct or come into contact with the microphone while you are recording video.
Its fairly easily fixed and its a common problem with the F30. The
shutter button contact slides off upon impact when dropped, it must be
re-aligned so that it makes proper contact and performs normally. All
that is needed is the special screw driver for the F30 (easily
purchased online, just google it: "screw driver for fuji f30" ) or
bring it to your local watch/jewelry repair store and tell them to open
it up for you.
We have two F30's and they both have been
dropped, both did the same thing with the shutter button. But both were
easily fixed. Always keep the camera in a safe place and away from
kids, they are very sensitive devices. Use the wrist cord when taking
The panasonic vidoe are in quicktime - you will need to either download quicktime software to run the vidoe clips or you can convert the file format from quicktime into windows media player format. The codecs you are downloading may convert your files but I am not familiar with GO.
I suggest you download quicktime for now, so you can at least play your vidoes. be sure to check your operating system for the download.
At a later date, you may or may not want to edit them in which case you can download a conversion tool or do so online.
Movies shot on FUJI's digital cameras are recorded in Motion JPEG format and can be played back using QuickTime version 3.0 or later.
(You can download QuickTime from the Apple Computer site).
To play back movies in Windows Media Player, download and install DirectX 8.0 or later from the DirectX website.
