Mp4 player How can I play the mp4 videos from the Xacti HD2 on the computer. All standard players Quicktime, realplayer, windows player give me an error while loading the files! THX for some help. I cant play MP4 files of HD (1920x1080) from my xacti HD1000 on any viewer ( tried Media v 11 and qtime 7) on my PC. I can load the files from the SD disk and save, but that is it. Also the ULead editing software from Sanyo on plays image change every 3 seconds or so, useless for editing or viewing. If I save on regular non HD mode, files can be read.

You can try Nero 8 (www.nero.com) which has a cool player (Nero Showtime) and a user friendly transcoding/DVD authoring tool (Nero Vision) to offer. You may also consider Videolan VLC (www.videolan.org) which is free, open source, less user-friendly but it supports batch file conversion -- a realloy cool features when you have a dozen+ video files to convert.

I have no problem playing the Xacti HD2 files. I guess this is because I have the codecs installed in my computer.

I recommend the Combined Community Codec Pack which I don't really understand but if you download and install it in your computer it allows you to play most video file types.

The HD2 mp4 files are pretty bog-standard MPEG-4 files, and very different from the newer Xacti HD1000/1010 files. The HD1000/1010 uses the new "h.264" super-duper compresion format (all the rage in many cameras now) that requires a lot of processor power to decode.

You often seem to need a fast dual/quad pentium to play the files, without the sound lagging for instance.

While the quality is considerably better, the old Xacti HD1/HD2 is often sufficient for things like Youtube or even Vimeo (strangely, unless you upload in HD to Youtube the quality is not good).

I hear that the (HD1000/1010's) h.264 format is the future, but until all your computers are very fast, and afaik most laptops currently on sale in 2009 do not have the power, it is a risky way to go.

I enjoy my Xacti HD2 and I hear that the Xacti HD1 is only a little worse, in lower light. For the next three years, till 2012, I think that they are great for Youtube vlogging in daylight situations. Added to that, the the Xacti HD1 and 2 (like the HD1000) have a microphone input which is a must for anywhere outside of your room.

Nero 8 (www.nero.com) has a good AVC/MP4 commercial player (Nero Showtime) and a user-friendly transcoder/DVD authoring tool (Nero Vision) to offer, but the latest does not support batch transcoding.

Videolan VLC (www.videolan.org/vlc/) does it all. It is free, open source, and also support batch file conversion. However, it is less user friendly.

Hope it helped.

I have quicktime player and I can't see the movie (I can only hear the sound) that has vlc mov codec and saved in quicktime program

I strongly recommend using VLC for watching any type of video. Programs like Quicktime player, windows media player etc often need codecs to play certain video types and formats like avi, flv etc. As for quicktime player, you propably need to download the proper codec for your movie format type

A friend e-mailed a video he made on his laptop computer, i have downloaded realplayer, quicktime, vlc, windows media and safari, none of them will play it, what do i need to do to get it to play?

One quick solution for Windows-based machines is to try this software...it's free. Another solution is to right-click the file and in the shell context menu click "open with". Choose a player from the list until you've found a compatible one. Windows Media Player will play most videos. I still recommend you give DivX a whirl.

Good Luck,

Computer cannot read and play the .mp4 video files from my Sanyo XActi CMOS 1920X 1080 .Is there a software I can download from the net?

Yes.

This is what the Sanyo CG9 Users Manual has to say about viewing videos taken with the camera:

"About video clip files recorded with this camera
You can use Apple’s QuickTime to play back video clips on a computer.
Playback may be possible using other software that supports the ISO
standard MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 (AAC audio)."

There are many ways to view mpeg-4 videos, but the one that is recommended for your camera from the CG9 support webpage is apple's quicktime available from apple here.
