Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera ?
Video footage will not play on computer.
\015 Using the video capture setting, I've recorded various shot videos in the past with no problems. Two days ago I found it necessary to shoot longer footage. Several films were only 2 minutes or less. When transferred to my computer, they played perfectly on every player I have (winamp, Windows Media, etc.) However, then I shot two films which were so long that they filled the entire SD cards. One of these films were shot on the same card as the other films which do work. Another card was reserved for another film, all by itself. Both cards were 2gb, allowing the films to last in excess of 10 minutes. These two films would play on the camera, but will not play on my computer. Opening them, windows media says it cannot recognize the codec used to compress them. Winamp and VLC media player give no explanations at all.\015\012\015\012Has anyone else experienced anything like this and found a solution? These films were long because they are very important, and I need to resolve this quickly.\015

Videos play on camera, not on computer. Why? How to fix? I took SD memory card out of camera, plugged into computer, copied direct to computer. The video files never play. the Intelli software required to transfer and convert video files to make them work properly? I changed form Windows XP computer to a new Windows 8 computer. Also, a separate issue on another SD memory card, copying SD memory card to computer, many files not recognizable, can't locate. Might be problem with that SD card. This

I cannot play my SD Card video clips on my computer. They appear as a series of still photos when put on to my computer. I usually use VLC for all my videos on my computer and have no other problems with it. I used a card recovery website to restore the SD Card as all the photos/video clips were "hidden". The Card Recovery v5.20 did a wonderful job of recovering the photos but only two of the many video clips actuall play. I purchased a Don't Panic CD Rom from Jessups. This only recovered

I have a Samsung SL620 digital camera with a Lexar 4GB SD card. It plays great videos and I am able to view them on my computer. However, when I put the SD into the USB of my Samsung LN46C630 LCD television, it shows photos but won't play the video, stating it is not formatted for viewing. Why can't a Samsung TV play video from a Samsung camera? Thanks
Probably because the tv doesn't have the correct circuitry to play videos. If you have a VHS recorder connected to the tv, you could download the video to a tape and play it that way. I have a Dish Network HD DVR. It has a usb connector allowing me t ... Samsung SL620 Digital Camera
My camera will not play back the sound with the image when it is playing back my videos. What is wrong? It makes the initial sounds for set up - but just will not play sound for video. When the video is sent to the computer, the sound is there - so I know it is recording. Thanks!
On the camera, go into the menu and select the setup. That's where you should find the option to turn on/off the video sound during camera playback. ... Digital Cameras

It sounds like you need to update your codec. Try playing the file with VLC player. That requires no codecs to use. If it will not play within that program, then it probably shouldn't be played lol. ... Vivitar ViviCam-X30 Digital Camera

No Sound I just got a new computer so I can burn home movies from my Samsung S630 to DVD. The computer recognizes the video, but not the sound. My camera works fine and the sound on the computer works fine except for when I try to play my videos. I've heard that I need codecs but don't know what type and where to get it. I don't have internet at home, so I'd need to burn the codec package to a CD and transfer it to my computer. Do you know what I need?

I have a Hitachi DZ-GX5020A DVD camcorder and I can't get the videos to play on my PC. The Computer won't read the little discs so there is no way I can even burn it onto a big disk.

Canon SD1000 Two days ago, my son had a gig at his high school. I recorded it with the Canon Powershot and everything was fine after that. The video would play on the camera and everything.

Anyways, I tried to load the large file onto my computer and I saw that it was in My Documents, so I clicked on it. It showed up as a 0byte file with ab
