Solution #1 is good advice. The codec pack is found here:

However be aware if you are using Windows Vista you may also need this:

    If you need to convert the mpeg-4 to something else, use the Any Video Converter, free version.

    http://www.any-video-converter.com/downl...

    It's the second one from the bottom of the page. Works like a charm, no adware, spyware, and totally free all the time. Very nice!

Mp4 and Mp3 codecs along with many others are not free. I wouldn't advise using any applications other than a true license codec within your application software on the enterprise level. K-lite has known issues to my knowledge.

U just search in google." k-lite mega codec pack" this a small freeware soft ware.just download it and install into u r pc. then run the video conference application... it will work i think.

How do we convert avi to mpeg?


The method for doing this is to use a piece of software such as WinAVI you will then be able to convert .avi files to an MPEG format. You will need to know which formats of MPEG your DVD player wil support such as MPEG, MPEG2, MPEG3, MPEG4.

Otherwise you should be able to purchase a new DVD player which will support multiple formats like, Dvix (.avi) WMV, etc, etc

How to change the recording video type to MPEG?

Mpeg format is very popular for its wide-ranged compatibility with video editor and media player, and its cross-platform neutral capability, meaning the mpeg format can be easily handled not only by Windows OS, but also on Mac. Mpeg is a compression codec used to reduce the space video files take up without severely compromising image quality. And MPEG-4 is the global multimedia standard, delivering professional-quality audio and video streams over a wide range of bandwidths, from cell phone to broadband and beyond.This could explain why so many people choose mpeg format for video editing purpose. It is also no surprise that people would ask about how to change the recording video type to MPEG format or how to convert mpeg to other formats.

Mpeg converter is born to solve the mpeg related conversion problem. Mpeg converter can convert almost all kind of video formats to MPEG file, such AVI, WMV, ASF, 3GP, MOV, VOB, MPG/MPEG2 and FLV (Flash Video), which could be converted/exported as avi, mpg, mp4 video formats for your later options, while keeping the original video quality. Mpeg converter can also extract audio track from those supported video to m4a, mp3, wav audio formats. besides, it is a powelful video editing tool too. Mpeg converter lets you trim any splendid clips or episodes of your favorite videos, crop the unwanted black edges of video, apply video effects, and capture pictures from your video.

i am sure this will be a total fresh experience for you, things will be easier if you follow the tutorial below:

step 1. Click here to download, install and then run Mpeg converter

step 2. Select a format to load video info

To load video info, click Load File button. you can choose one video or more each time at will with the batch conversion capability. define the output path by clicking the output button, you can then name the output file as you like.

c. For more settings click Setting button to tune the video/audio parameters like frame rate, bit rate, resolution, etc.

Video down load problem


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.

How do I play MPEG recordings?


Using Windows Media Player You need Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher and Sharp G.726 Audio Codec in order to play MPEG4 files from the Memory Stick on your PC. If you are not currently using Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher. Important: The Sharp G.726 Audio Codec needed to play MPEG4 files is no longer signed by Microsoft. If Sharp G.726 Audio Codec is not properly installed on your PC, it will not play MPEG4 Audio. Using DivX® You can also download a free DivX® Player and codec to play your MPEG and other video format files. DivX® for Windows is a free codec built to play every version of DivX content. The DivX codec also plugs into your existing video software so you can view and create high-quality DivX videos at a fraction of the original size. The DivX codec also adds DivX video playback support to most popular media players.

MPEG4


MPEG-4 is a graphics and video compression algorithm standard that is based on MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and Apple QuickTime technology. Wavelet-based MPEG-4 files are smaller than JPEG or QuickTime files, so they are designed to transmit video and images over a narrower bandwidth and can mix video with text, graphics and 2-D and 3-D animation layers.
