I shoot video in my S730 samsung digital camera, and at the time I replay the video file in my computer I can't hear any sound(I have windows vista basic OS), the thing is that as I play the video in the camera (S730) I can hear the audio in the video files or if I replay the file in a windows XP sistem I hear every thing. One more thing as I play other files taken by other cameras sony, casio, fuji etc I have no problem with the audio files only the samsung one,

On XP Home, I use the Digimax software that is included on the driver's disc. It works fine, but no Media players that I have installed will work. On my Vista Home Premium PC, I accidently used DIVX player to open a file and it worked! And it works every time! I don't know why because it never worked on XP. Also of note - I did reinstall the Digimax software onto Vista, so maybe Vista uses the codecs from the software to play the files on DIVX correctly. But either way, these two solutions should work for anyone having this problem. Remember, on any XP versions you WILL need to use the included Digimax software to view the files with working sound.

    Just use the included Digimax software. It always works for me. The K-Lite codec pack did not do the trick for me. But maybe I don't know how to adjust the settings enough...



I have the same problem but I use and uploaded my video and the sound finally worked!!!!

Record video not have pause button

Very few cameras do. Videos are meant to be shot and then edited and scenes spliced together, often out of the sequence in which they were shot.

To "pause" a video, simply stop shooting. To "unpause," resume shooting. Then use a video editing program on a computer to splice them together. You might also want to put a title at the beginning, add credits at the end, add a musical soundtrack, etc.

Samsung s730 Digital Camera - Video Stuttering Problem

I have the same problem with 640x320 video @ 30fps. The first one was very clean, but after that the video freezes every two seconds, but the audio don't. I "fixed" this issue changing the video format from NTSC to PAL. Now the videos are smooth again, and if you want NTSC playback, just use a video converter on your PC.
