Sony990X optical 20X Digital Zoom Camcorder problems

I use my camcorder to stream video through my PC. About 3 months ago, I unplugged it and moved it to another room. I'm guessing some of the settings were changed on accident. The picture looks great on the cam itself, but once it streams to a site online, the picture on the PC is stretched vertically, almost looks like a carnival mirror. Maybe something to do with the frame rate or???? Please help if you can. Thank you.

Sharing Media Videos via DLNA-Connect the Converted HD Videos MP4 to Droid X via...


DLNA for HD Videos Streaming:Camcorder Videos to Droid X with Compatible Format <br />Droid X DLNA-Stream Camcorder HD Videos from Windows 7 PC to Droid X,WD TV Live Hub via DLNA <br /><br />I have recently setup DLNA between my Windows 7 PC and Droid X, and my other home devices like WD TV Live Hub. With HDMI cable connected between WD TV Live Hub to my HDTV, I can stream most of my videos from Windows 7 PC and watch on HDTV. But Droid X does not read the .mts files that I transferred to PC from my Sony Handycam CX700. <br /><br />Actually, there are DLNA-certified cameras, which might be easily connected to Droid X via WiFi. But my camcorder is the non-DLNA compliant Sony CX700, thus I need to store the .mts files on Windows 7 PC. The mts videos play well via <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">DLNA streaming from PC to WD TV Live Hub with HDTV</a></b>. I was recommended to convert the camcorder videos in .mts to .mp4 for streaming to Droid X with Aunsoft Final Mate. <br /><br />Aunsoft Final Mate works great for the CX700 videos. I just need to import videos to Final Mate, create a movie for conversion from the File menu (File &gt; Create A Movie For Conversion), bring the clips to Movies tab. Click the Export button under the volume settings, and choose Droid X output profile to start conversion. You can also <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">Free Download Final Mate</a></b> with the trial version, and give it a try. <br /> <br />For those who may have problem <b>Setting up <a href="http://1080p-converter.com/2011/07/sharing-media-videos-via-dlna-connect-the-converted-hd-videos-mp4-to-droid-x-via-dlna/">DLNA Video Streaming</a></b>, here I would like to give you the fast guide with my Windows 7 PC, WD TV Live Hub and Droid X. <br /><br />1. Windows 7 PC is DLNA-compliant, and I just need to activate two services: SSDP Discovery and Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service. <br /><br />2. Make sure the devices are in the same network, and put the video files to the video folder on Windows 7 for sharing. <br /><br />3. WD TV Live Hub and Motorola Droid X are also DLNA-compliant. There is built-in DLNA application on Droid X, and is available in the Application tray. Just run DLNA to control or play videos on Droid X. <br /><br />Below is the DLNA application on Droid X: <br /> <br />Turn on WiFi, and you will face the following screen for playing media, copying media to server, copying media to phone, or share media. <br /> <br />To stream and play the MP4 files converted from AVCHD files by Final Mate, just choose Play media, and Droid X will ask you to choose source, choose player, and start streaming. <br /><br />With Final Mate, you can easily stream <b><a href="http://canon-videoconverter.com/2011/07/droid-x-dlna-stream-camcorder-hd-videos-from-windows-7-pc-to-droid-xwd-tv-live-hub-via-dlna/">Camcorder Videos to Droid X with DLNA Compatible Format</a></b>.

Stream Sony XR550 AVCHD from PC to Panasonic TC-P50G25 via DLNA with PS3


PS3 DLNA Video-Play MTS/M2TS Videos from Computer to Non-DLNA TV with PlayStation 3 <br />Full Guide to Setup Windows 7 for PS3 with DLNA Streaming to HDTV <br /> <br />The HDTV in my living room is non-DLNA compliant. It is the 50-inch Panasonic VIERA TC-P50G25 Plasma HDTV. Even though my PC is running Windows 7 with WMP 12, the videos could not be streamed to the Plasma TV via DLNA. It is quite inconvenient for home sharing. <br /><br />When looking for the solution for <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">playing videos from PC to non-DLNA TV</a></b>, I got to know that I could download my Sony XR550 videos from camcorder to PC, connect PlayStation 3 to HDTV via HDMI cable as the media player - <b><a href="http://sony-mts-converter.com/2011/07/play-mtsm2ts-videos-from-computer-to-non-dlna-tv-with-playstation-3/">Stream Sony AVCHD from PC to Panasonic via DLNA with PS3</a></b>. The PS3 is generally used as game console. I also use Aunsoft Final Mate to join the AVCHD files from my XR550 to manage the clips for certain occasion and events. <br /><br />The first thing I do is to make sure PS3 can read the videos from PC. As Windows 7 is DLNA compliant, I just need to make sure the "Windows Media Player Sharing Service" is enabled automatically. Get the clips to the shared folder for video. <br /> <br />Note: The "Windows Media Player Sharing Service" is available in the Service section. Just right-click on My Computer &gt; Manage &gt; Services and Applications &gt; Services, and you can find "Windows Media Player Sharing Service". <br /><br />Wait for a while, and PS3 would read the video files from PC. Then for playing <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">AVCHD files flawlessly via DLNA</a></b> with PS3, we join clips from Sony XR550 into one large file. Run Aunsoft Final Mate, and go to the Resource tab to browse the folder with the .mts files from XR550. Click the Create New Movie button, drag and drop files from Resource tab to the movie ID. Click the Export button and the files will be joined seamlessly for DLNA sharing. <br /> <br /><b>Tips:</b> <br />If the PS3 does not display the PC as source folder, we shall allow the access to Windows 7 as media server. <br /><br />Control Panel &gt; Network and Sharing Center &gt; Change Advance Sharing Settings, and you would face the window like below: <br /> <br />Make sure the "Network discovery" and "File sharing" are selected as turn on. Go to the Media streaming section and click "Choose media streaming options..." to make sure you allow PS3 for streaming. Then <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">PS3 would read video files from PC</a></b> for HDTV playback.

Cant transfer videos to pc


Option 1:

If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.

Refer this Link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893

NOTE: As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.

Option 2:

(Applicable for Windows XP Operating System only):

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.

Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C222820

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.

Option 3:

If you are using an i.LINK cable then:

The Camcorder will flash the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK/Firewire cable is connected to the Camcorder.

If you are getting the DV IN message then it indicates that the Camcorder recognize the connection.

If you are not getting the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK cable is connected with the Camcorder then the issue may be with either the Camcorder or with the i.LINK cable.

Try resetting the Camcorder or try with different i.LINK cable. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder. (You will be able to locate the RESET button by opening the LCD Screen. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object).

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.

If the issue still persists after resetting the Camcorder and with different i.LINK cable then your Camcorder requires service to resolve the issue.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Deleting unwanted files with a JVC Everio MG130 Camera


Answer:what you do is you press the play/record button on the left side of the camcorder when it is open to get to the videos. then you use the laser touch operation to scroll to the video you want to delete. then, right under the screen there should be 5 buttons. the one to the left of the menu button has a picture of a garbage can looking thing above it. just press that and then press yes when it asks you if your sure.

Well, any type of streaming video will need a good amount of bandwith to transfer without interuption. If you were, for instance, plugged directly into a cable or DSL modem and it worked fine, and now youve set up a wireless router and moved your computer across the house... it's possibl;e your computer is not getting a good connection. If multiple computers share the same connection through this router then they are all sharing the limited bandwith you get from your ISP. Try (if possible) moving the router (and or cable/dsl modem) closer to your PC and make sure other aren't online when you are.

I can't save movies to my camcorder!


Tey checking the output mode.... Samsung does not allow the option to transfer video easily. Make sure your default settings have not optioned back to nothing. check your connections are set up properly both on the camera and in the preference menu. If all of this fails, check to see if show video in camera viewer or similar is checked or unchecked. I have not had huge success with ouptutting to a Samsung, they do not specialize in it, however, you mentioned you were able to before. This is my best guess.....
