THAT STUPID LITTLE CAMERA HAS PISSED ME OFF SO MUCH!!!!! THAT CODEC IS IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!! I WISH I COULD RETURN THIS THING AND GET SOMETHING ELSE BUT I LOST THE ESSENTIAL PACKAGING...WARNING FOR ALL OF YOU DONT WASTE MONEY. FUCK YOU PANASONIC YOU SUCK ASS!!!!
I know where and How..But firts ,you need to know ,if you make records in XF (extra fine)and do you want to send to other person they need this driver too, otherwise he will be in the same problem at least , you decreased the format to economic o fine ,in case you have record in Xf you can decrease with the software :xxxstage: coming wiht the camera.
Ok this the page you can get the drive...
Im sure you will see in WindowsMediaPlayer your records..believe me take me almost 2 hours to get this problem to solve anyway Good Greeting from COlombia.!
I GOT IT FUCKERZZZZZZZZZ!!
Cheerz from Chile! I Thought I was the only one asshole person that had this fucking problem, but searching the right codec to play XtraFine files of my Panasonic SV-AV50 D-Snap camera, I got into this forum...I read all complains and everyone were just like me...the same trouble..the same issue…”CANNOT PLAY XF FILES IN OUR PC’s!” I followed the instructions that the columbian guy (juanmeminpiloto) provided. I right clicked the link and it drove me to a japanese site of panasonic, i downloaded the “so-called” codec to play the XF files, it took almost 10 minutes and what happened?? I run windows media player and once again appears a little windows that says: “Cannot play file because of missing codec”..and i said, FUCK THAT ! the panasonic site was wrong??..what do i do?!..and before closing that little window I read that there was an option that said: “Help from the web” so i clicked on it and a window opened itself and appeared: “The following search results match the codec that you are missing. To download and install the codec, click the download site below and then follow the instructions.
" FUCK!!! I said! that’s it!! you only have to click a japanese link (I couldn’t read ANYTHING at all, but I only realized that in green characters there was an option to download the codec. I already downloaded, and finally I could play the XTRA FINE files in my computer!! Fucking cool!!! You only have to download codecs twice, only 2 codecs, the one that appears in the Panasonic link that provided the guy form Colombia and the other link I say (the Japanese one, actually it is from a SHARP page, once you download the codec from that page you’ll see everything appears in Japanese,) I don’t have my pc to recognize Japanese characters, so the only shit that appeared were shit like these : ?¿¨^^Ñ$Ñ•%(•!”•$$)I$=•)$, But it doesn’t matter, once you download the codec a wizard shield appears, and you only have to picture on your minds that you are installing just one more program in your pc like msn messenger, I mean , no matter what it says, just click “Next”, just click the selected option that appears, don’t select anything, just click, then you have to restart your pc and then, you CAN PLAY XTRA FINE FILES !!! If you have any doubts regarding this shit I can help you all, my email is email@example.com. Sorry about my English, I’m from chile and it is kinda difficult tom me, coz I talk in Spanish, see ya!!!
is in the battery compartment.!
about the issue windows Xp sp2 works fine for me,.
But again If you download the codec only you can see “XF” quality video if you wanna send this format with this resolution to anyone you must to send the codec too..anyway this is a peace of shit camera ,and expensive.!
Darn... i’m not the only one with this problem. i installed 'something' from this japanese website of sharp too http://www.sharp.co.jp/viewcam/download/g726_download.html
though cant read japanese. suddenly it worked. could play the files, but just some. strange enough still have 4 other files that i cant play. Anyone can tell me why? Is it just the extra fines that troubles?
should’ve bought that kodak than this sv-av50
the codecs that i uso to play the camera videos are:
whit those codecs i have no problem, i have a phanasonic d-snap.
