.thm Files

posted in File Types, viewed 475k times Page 1 of 11[1] 2 3 4 next › last »

I recorded video clips using my Sony Cybershot digital camera, which unfortunately had .thm as the video file type default. (I eventually changed that!)

2 Questions: Is there a a video player that actually PLAYS .thm files? Better yet, is there a program to convert these files to .mpeg or some other common video file type?

Thanks!

Walter:

Did you figure out how to view them? I have a Canon digital camera with a similar issue.

Thanks,

The thm files are just jpeg thumbnails for your video files. Your video files should have the exact same name, but with extension avi.
The thm can be viewed with anything that can view jpeg (internet explorer for example). Even simpler is to rename the extension to jpg.
If you can’t play the avi, chances are you’re missing the codec. Feed the avi into one of the diagnostic tools listed on this page - http://www.moviecodec.com/questions/neededcodec.html

The .thm file also contains exif (http://www.exif.org) information (such as when the video was made, with what kind of camera an so on). Many programs make use of the exif information in order to catalogue images, for exampel by date. reply

When downloading a video from our Canon Elph 2 files show up for each video. Both files have the same name but different extensions, e.g:
123_456.avi
123_456.thm

If you just want to see the clip open the avi in windows media player (or another prefered player)and feel free to delete the thm to avoid future confusion.

I have the same camera. How did you change it so that the videos do not come out to thm files anymore? I’m having the same problem, did you figure it out yet? reply

Also when putting a video on the SONY PSP you put a .MP4 and a .thm file.
There is a program which lets u convert mpeg to .mp4 and .thm.
Made for the PSP. reply

As others have noted, there are 2 files stored. So for each .thm file there is a corresponding .avi file, which is the actual video. reply

Frank:

There should be an associated .avi file with the same filename for each .thm file (i.e., same filename, but different extension). The .thm file is basically index or information file, whereas the .avi file is the actual video.

frank - i’m assuming that you have file extensions hidden. assuming the recording you are trying to access is in folder 'xyz' go to open the folder, go to 'tools' --> 'folder options' --> 'view' and uncheck 'hide extensions for known file types'. once you have the extensions visible, you’ll have a '.thm' and either a '.mpg' or a '.avi'. if you want to simply view the .thm (it represents a thumbnail of your '.mpg', change the extension to .jpg and open it in any standard .jpg viewer. however, if you want to view the entire video, just open the .mpg or .avi whatever the case may be, in your standard media player. reply

THM file is basically index file and the avi extension file is stored in other directory in Sony camera which can be find easily while searching in other directory. reply

i recorded a mini vido with my camera canon power shot s45, unfortunally i can see the film but i can not listen the sound.

when i downloaded file from the camera they are divided in .avi file (the one i can see) and .thm that i can not open.

probably is the sound in .thm file?
how can i add sound to my .avi file?

thank you eleonora reply
