    Have done some video clips on my Medion camera, and although I can watch them on the camera, they won't run when downloaded to the computer. It says the clip is an avi file, i watch the clips through infranview. The error message says there's no mpeg decompressor.

    Q: Problem: If I try to play some AVIs, I get the error message "Video not available, cannot find MJPG decompressor"!
    A: Method 1: Go to 'Properties->Video' and activate the option: 'Use DirectShow for playing'.
