I have my camera connected to the laptop and have used the windows photo gallery to import pics and videos. the photo gallery said it couldn't play the videos so I moved them to winamp - they are showing as mp.4s and while the audio will play in winamp I don't know how to get the video to play.

help please

if you want to change the format to WMV u need a converter... I think this is a free one here: WUGNET - AVS Video Tools - Windows Vista XP Shareware)

what is the best format to have it go to - i.e. so I can share the videos and how do I make it go to that format on the camera - it's a sony ericsson phone.

I have quicktime on my desktop - if I send the files there will I be able to play them - and will I be able to share them with people - how do I do that?

liz,


if you send your files to quicktime it will work. use the converter to change them to wmv and then you can share them because it's not a proprietary format.

I can't download quicktime - see multiple waaaahhhh's in other threads

And I know that's the solution, but what I'm really asking here is WHY is it going to mp4?


Thanks for your help Amy

i am not sure why they are in that format. Have you recorded video on your camera before? Do you have a mac computer and laptop? If so then the software for the camera I think defaults to a mac proprietary format like mp4.

i would google that phone and see if you can find out whether thats why, that it uses this a default and maybe there is way you can change it if not then you will have to convert and or view it in quicktime.

from the brief skimming i did online, it looks like this is the default format for sony ericsson phones.
