Hmmm, Videowave Won't Recognize Any Of My Video Formats?

Question

I have 5 cameras and Videowave will not recognize any videos shot with any of the cameras. However, I can view any of them either in Windows Media Player or Quicktime.

 

The cameras are:

Sony HDR-AS100V - MP4 format

NikonCoolpix S9050 - just lists as Quick Time Movie

JVC GZ-V500BU - lists as AVCHD

Sony HDR-CX220 - AVCHD

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS19 - MP4

 

Here's some details. If I use My Computer to view files and right click on a video file and then click OPEN WITH, it does not give me a choice of Videowave. Further, if I open Videoaave and select the files in the media tab and go to the location I know for sure the files are, they do not show up in the media window.

 

I have used Videowave a lot, but it's been a while and I can't remember what formats I edited. However, if I recall correctly, all of the above listed formats are purportedly supported. What's really puzzling is that My Computer indicates Videowave is not a program that can open the files.

 

Could it be Videowave is corrupt, or am I not understanding something???

 

Many thanks!!!

You could run a repair and see?

 

These are required for some functionality, QuickTime® player version 7 and iTunes® version 10 required for some functionality.

 

Some run the file through a video converter as the same input output and Videowave accepts them.

 

My Cannon Power Shot .mov file has no audio when I import it into Videowave and I use the video converter route.

 

If it still won't work for you post some small samples on a file hosting site so we can download them and poke them with a stick.

Thanks!

 

I hate to have to ask, but, how do I run a repair???

 

I forgot to mention, I tried using the Copy and Convert Video, the conversion was kinda slow but did produce a file and Videowave wouldn't open the converted file either???

If you have a installation disc put it in a drive and run it when repair is offered choose it reboot when done.

 

Of course all programs including antivirus and firewall terminated.

MarcoColumbus, the problem is not choppy video, it is that the program doesn't recognize the videos. A whole different issue.

 

There are FREE video format converters that are available. The repair tool video is a pay for program.that doesn't address the key issue and was therefore removed.
