    use MEDIA PLAYER CLASSIC or VLC player to play the MVI file.


    There are more ways to convert MVI to any other movie file, but every converting will reduce the quality of your movie file!


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jul 14, 2008

    downloaded a free program called 'Stoik Video Converter'. link

    This program
    converts the MVI video file in the Canon Power shot to AVI format
    at a rather small file size.

    if you still want to
    convert it from AVI format to Windows Media, Download and install the
    Windows Media encoder 9 series (also free).

    thank you

    dont forget to accept the solution if you are OK with it.

    have a great day

I recorded several vidoes but they won't play as they say say file not supported...it is an mvi with .thm and I can't even play it back


Think you might mean that you can't play back the mvi file on your computer. The likely cause is that you didn't install the Zoombrowser installation disk that came with your camera (this includes the necessary codec to play the Canon MVI files). No problem, an alternative method if you don't have the disk is to simply install Apple Quicktime on your computer. This also includes the necessary codec to play the file. Apple provides Quicktime as a free download, and may be downloaded from here.

Go to http://www.download.com/1770-2001_4-0.html?query=klite+media&tag=srch&searchtype=downloads

and download the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 4.2.5 and install it.

This will help you in playing the MVI file in Windows media player. Moreover the codec I provided above will also help you in playing all kinds of DVD movie in Windows Media Player.

Happy Halloween Day.

How to convert MVI to AVI file for edit in Pinnacle Studio?


Some Canon digital still cameras (Powershot A75, A63, S410 etc), are capable of shooting a limited amount of video, since there is no tape, it is saved as an MVI file format. However, the MVI file format is not compatible with other programs. Even windows media player refuse to play MVI file. Besides, editing software like Pinnacle Studio and Windows movie maker do not work with the format. Because of this, the files need to be converted to a format that is more widely used, such as AVI so that these videos shot with still camera can be played and edited as easily as other common videos. This guide is to tell how to do that.
Software you'll Need: Pavtube Video Converter

Step 1. Download Pavtube Video Converter, and follow the prompts to install the program. Click "Finish" when the installation is complete, and Pavtube Video Converter will launch automatically.

Step 2. Click “Add” to load MVI files or directly drag the files into file list. By default, the files are selected. If you would like to join all the selected files together, check the box of Merge into one. You could view the files in preview window, simply highlight the file and click play button.


Step 3. Click “Format” bar to determine output format. Follow Common Video-> AVI Video (*.avi)/ DivX AVI(*.avi). Click “Settings” if you’d like to customize advanced audio and video parameters like Video Codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, Audio codec, sampling rate, bit rate, channels. Do not forget to click “OK” to confirm your settings. Then type in a desired output location in the "Output" box.
Step 4. Click "Convert” to start converting MVI files to AVI. You could set auto shutdown in progress window or leave it there and come back later. After conversion you could edit the converted video in Pinnacle Studio, and make a film out of it or burn it onto DVD.

jpg and jpeg are both "picture only" file formats. it might have put it in another folder on the camera. the file will be either .mpg , .mpeg, or .avi most digital cameras save as .avi witch is perfect for uploading online! I would check every folder that is on the camera. there's gotta be an AVI file in there somewhere! Good luck hope this helped!

If your computer has a SD card reader, you might be better off putting your memory card into your computer and just copying the data.

Have you made sure your iPhoto is up to date? Perhaps a new update caused this problem.. Maybe you should try an older version of the software. Also, you might want to try other software. (I think you are on a mac?), you might want to try the software that came with the camera, if it works on your computer.

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:
