Question about Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX Personal Web Camera

1 Answer

Cannot store video

My STX seems to work fine but will not store video. I can get it to store 1 frame and even this disappears. The MVW file appears in the directory but then disappears. Photos work ok.

Any help appreciated

Have you tried to move the files to another directory? It would seem the software only keeps these files temporarily. There might be a setting in the software to prevent this deletion.

Could the software have become corrupted? Save your files and do a complete dump. You might also want to use regedit to completely remove as many fragments of the program left behind Then reinstall the application and reinsert your files in the area they should be. Cross your fingers and see what happens.

My Kodak M820 8

yes avi should play on that.. but i think that kind of device(frame) is like some of the mp4s that includes avi in the features but will have problems playing avi type of files.... ... i dunno if this is useful coz i dont think i have the answers to correct it... maybe u can just convert the files in other filetype that your frame can read....

i read this from wikipedia

The AVI container has no native support for modern MPEG-4 features like B-Frames. Hacks are sometimes used to enable modern MPEG-4 features and subtitles, however, this is the source of playback incompatibilities.
AVI files do not contain pixel aspect ratio information. Microsoft confirms that "many players, including Windows Media Player, render all AVI files with square pixels. Therefore, the frame appears stretched or squeezed horizontally when the file is played back."[1] There are other video container formats that allow irregular shaped pixels.
More modern container formats (such as QuickTime, Matroska, Ogg and MP4) offer more flexibility, however, projects based on the FFmpeg project, including ffdshow, MPlayer, xine, and VLC media player, have solved most problems with viewing AVI format video files.

pls do update me if you've resolve the problem

How can I retrieve lost video files?

You can try using this software for recovering the deleted video from the camcorder. It is not a freeware but the free version can scan and show you the file so that you can purchase the software if it finds the file.
