    I made a video on my android tablet but when I transferred it to my computer, the file is a xsp format. and I am unable to play it on the computer. Is there a way to change the file type to be usable.

    I see no reference to a video format which uses the xsp extension. I see references to Auto Cad and a few programs which use it as a playlist.

    What program was used to create it?

    I don't know the program. This tablet stuff is new to me and I just took a video of a great-grand daughter, showing a dog at her first dog show, and have not been able to transfer it to my PC to keep it or share it. Shows fine on the tablet (android). I took it with the camera on the tablet. shows good there. it is actually xpsf file (sorry the above info. was incomplete)

    Do you mean xspf?
    If so, vlc will play and convert it

    I've only taken stills with my tablet not any video.

    You should be able to connect the tablet to the PC by the USB cable.
    Then open the tablet in Windows (not Internet) Explorer and go through the folders until you find the file.

    I drag all the pictures I take that way from the tablet to the computer.
    For still pictures, I find the DCIM folder then Camera folder inside. I'm not sure where video files would be stored.

    Okay, I just used my husband to test the video. I took a 5 second video. My tablet saves it in mp4 format. I discovered it also places it in the DCIM/Camera folder so see if you can find the movie there.
