They don't play - their sole purpose in life is to provide a thumbnail image for your camera and of course zoom browser. Personally I don't give them any disk space!

So is there no other way of playing or converting these files at all? That's pretty stupid cos it means you can't send them to people. It's also a little misleading to call them "avi files" on the box.

Well I meant when I send the avi to people they wont be able to play it because it is a M-JPEG (motion jpeg) file. Having said that, I have recently downloaded a free M-JPEG codec which allows you to play those movies in Windows Media Player and convert them to other formats eg. Mpeg2 (if you have a video program such as Premiere).


Anybody that wants it, just goto:

I don't think that the file is actualy a codec. Rather an 'thumnail' image so when it shows you the first frame of the movie, its showing you that picture.

That way it doesn't have to open up the avi and extact the first frame every time.

As for the codec, it worked on my computer but not my gf's. So isntalled quicktime thatr was ont he cd and work on that.

Will download that codec so i can put on cd's for others. THanks for sharing it.

Cheers Mate. Glad that codec works on your comp. I think it's only for 60 days though.

Hey great photo collection you got. I like the fireworks photos.

The codec that you linked is only 60 days? or the standad one?
There must be something on the canon cd or website to let you watch them. When ever i burn a cd for someone i have to though quicktime on there for them if it doesn't work. Might ring canon about it sometime.

No I meant the MJPEG codec I linked to is only 60 days. Having said that, I've seen no evidence of it being a trial version, so who knows.

The canon one is fine. But it only plays through Zoombrowser on my computer, because the avi files are encoded with MPJEG. Thats why I downloaded a codec. I actually edit my 640x480 res clips into movies, with sounds, titles, transitions etc, then export them as high res MPEG2 videos.

In reply to your question:

I used to have a reasonably good photography web site with landscape photos from all over New Zealand's scenery, but that was a while ago, and doesn't really exsist anymore. The photos were from scanned from film prints.

Now that I have a digital, I have so many more photos and I will need to organise them sometime and might upload some onto a new site or something.

Can you import the avi's with the new codec straight into your editing program if it's not the canon one?

Ive had to rename to mpg for it to work for some reason.

Compression codec's are giving me a headacke at the moment, there even worse. I'm trying to find a good one where the viewer doesn't have to download extra software to view it.

these files are actually jpg files. I opened it up with irfanview and it told me the contests was a jpg with the wrong extention, so they can be usefull to be re-named as a jpg and used as a thumnail for the avi in a webpage.
