Hi

I have a Sony HD camcorder which records to memory stick and saves files as .mts or .m2ts or SD format in .mpg

Can't seem to get any of these to play in Windows Media Player

I have Vista Premium and Media Player 11

Thanks

Thanks for that

I tried both links and WMP came up with a message to say that there was an error about a codec and Nero didn't play at all

Which version of Nero?

Nero 7 Ultra Edition Enhanced and Nero 8 Ultra Edition are a software suites which contains the AVCHD editor, found in Nero Vision. Also included in this suite is Nero Showtime, which plays AVCHD files natively. Edited video can also be burned to DVD discs in AVCHD format for playback on hardware players or in Blu-ray format.

Didn't your camera come with any software?

I guess you can look into this:

All I have is Nero Showtime Essentials

Not sure how that relates to Nero 8....

The camera did come with some software which transfers it to hard disk - the mts and mpg files it creates can't be read by WMP ??

:confused:

I have looked at that and read articles here and there

WHY don't they make this easy

In one article it said you had to follow ffshow with another application to finalise it, another said one version of Nero would do it, but the version after won't

I DON'T WANT THAT HASSLE

I just want WMP to be able to read mpeg 4 H.264 files - period

I must need a codec to do this - how do you get one and install it

Jeez

My advice is to get VLC and K-Lite Codec Pack get the full version. You will now be able to play any video file format. :)

I tried VLC and it froze when opening a mts file - so I gave up

K-Lite suggests uninstalling all other codecs before installing itself

Over my head

I just want to view a film I shot on my camcorder - I don't want to go back to university and learn computer jargon
