Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera ?

Movie download i recorded some movie clips at a concert. but when i downloaded them with the ZOOM EX browser, they play back really slow. audio is normal, but the moving image is slow motion and out of sync with the audio. what am i doing wrong? please help!! can't find the info in my booklet. also, do i have to change the filename tag or transfer it somehow to play in windows media player? thanks.

Answers :


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.

Movies - Audio Does Not Sync When Playing on Computer The audio always plays at normal speed, but the movie never catches up to it.
