Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Movie playback speed

When I download pics and or at the same time download movies, my Windows Media Player will play movies at a slower pace than the audio which is normal sounding. Could this be in the camera or is it in my Media Player? Thanks to any and all who can help. Mark

Odds are it is the media player. Most often with digital video, frames will drop but the software will make sure the audio isn't lost. There is a lot mmore data transfer with video than audio. The dropped frames will result in a "jerky" video playback. We humans can compensate for lost frames - in fact a lot of video on the web used to play at maximum 15 frames per second. But we don't like it when the sound is lost. What would it sound like if we only heard half the audio? We would shut it down fast. The computer has to deal with software talking to hardware. The hardware has to re-draw every frame for you on your monitor, but it has to wait for the data to be sent and the software has to deal with that. And this will be more evident the older your computer is. Hope this helps.

I am having trouble accessing videos/pics. on my laptop


Since your question is not so clear, I have to assume myself that pictures and videos saved on your phone can't play on your computer after they are transferred to your computer. The message simply means that the codec installed on your system does not support the media type that you are playing. If you don't have any other player installed on your system you have to try with this one Vlc media Player (click here to download). Download it, and install, now open the downloaded files (video or pic or audio) using this player. Hopefully that should work. Alternatively you can use this player instead of Windows Media Player, but on the other hand, you can still play those files using Windows Media Player. The only thing you need is to install a codec, like Klite megacodec packs, Acemega codec packs, etc.. Click here to download Klite mega codec packs Download, Install and restart your computer, now you'll be able to play any type of media file using your windows media player and other players.

If you have problem, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

When i down load a movie from a sd hc card the movie won't work on the window media player it say codec problem


You need a good codec pack. I would suggest KL codec pack full. You can download it for free from here. http://www.codecguide.com/

It will allow you to play just about any video format in windows media player. Note if you are using a 64 bit operating system you need the 64 bit codec pack. Don't forget to rate me.

Movie download


Hi.

The S3 and other canons record AVIs as Motion JPEGS.

they should play in media player, but you may need to download a codec.

I use VEMoDe, a free movie converter. this may work for you. For playing on the PC I recommend the "Pocket PC' or Pocket PC VGA setting.

Thanks.

Movies -


Canon support suggested I download the newest version of Quicktime. That fixed the sync problem while viewing my movies. There was no reason given, but I'm guessing that Windows Media Player is lacking when it comes to these particular files.

I hope this assists others with a similar problem.
