One and Last solution see inside the same folder you must see for example: Movie948.thm but you will find Movie948.Avi too in thumbnail format which looks like jpg but its actually not jpg but video, thm is just for indexing you can simply delete it.
the .thm files are just the thumbnails that appera on the camera as a still shot from your movie.
The actual movies are .mpg
yes but how do i get sound with the avi
I’d like to use my sony DSC-S90 as a portable video player during a long flight. I’ve tried converting a video using ffmpegx to mpeg-1 640x480 29.97 fps video mp2 32000Hz 64 kbps audio, and muxing it. I’ve named the file MOV00003.MPG. I even tried to use the same bitrate for the video. When I try viewing the video on the camera I still get “File error” (it plays fine on my mac though). If anyone knows of a process (besides using the camera to record the video off my computer screen) that will generate .MPG files which are playable on the DSC-S90 please post here.
I just realized that this post may not be in the right section of this board (I found this page on a web search, it’s one of the search results probably because other people were asking the same question as me). I’ll post somewhere else later. I’ve gotta go to sleep, my flight leaves this morning.
i changed an .mpeg file to a .thm i have no idea how i did it but i cant seem to get it back to mpeg and its bugging me does any one know what to do? plz
...mmm i’ve got the same problem but i don’t have a sony cam but a canon... and I AM SURE it is a movie shot and NOT a picture... i hate this .thm file :') please help me? i want to put it on youtube!!!!
Allrite. . I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W35 and I took videos with them. They came out as THM files. I tried to go to the “tools, hide .. whatever” area and it did nothing for me. The AVI files are still not showing up. What did I do wrong? Or rather WHAT CAN I DO?
Oh! I found out that I have some MPG videos! And they work in Windows Media Player. Noww... Can anyone tell me how to convert THM files into MPG files? =]
I need to convert jpeg to thm, do any of you know where I can download a free version?
i hav an a540 aswell and was wondering how i can put avi files onto it as it says “the device does not allow files to be placed in this location”
The video is in the .avi, .mov, or .mpg files. The .thm is a JPEG picture of the first frame in the video. To view the .thm, change its extension to .jpg and open it.
please help me to run.THM file from sony cybershot. Earlier, i have shot clips. But .THM format came with .AVI . now iam not getting .AVI. why? please help me.
I have a Sony Cyber Shot. Every time I save movies from my camera to my pc the file slips in two. avi and tmh. at first I could only see the image and there was no sound but now it’s only the first image that shows up. What should I do
I have a canon A560 and uploaded pictures and Movies from SD Card to a DVD but now when I want to view pictures or Movies I receive a message which you have an invalid format . what happend and what is solution ?
Hi, I have this question: How can I move a mpg movie from my pc to a sony cybershot, and see it on the camera? I was thinking that only need to create thm file to see and access the video in the camera, but I’m not really sure. If any ones know how to move, please help me.
When doing what Hadi g. said it worked for me. But instead of seeing .avi i saw .mpg which is known. Could be your problem not finding the .avi and if you can view it on your camera than the file is there. Most likely it will be right next to the .THM file. And if your problem is sound the .THM has nothing to do with it. THM is just an image type of file for the camera to show you a screenshot of the video without it having to play it right away so you can choose to go to the next video or not without the camera taking so long.
I would deffinately create a .THM file so the camera can recognize it but i am not sure how to do so. I know you would have to name it the same name but with a .THM file extension instead of .mpg.. i would make a .jpg and then just rename the file to a .thm and see how that goes. If it works let me know or if you figure something else out that works let me know. I dont have the time to try it anytime soon!
This thread is full of ****ing idiots.
NO, YOU CAN’T CONVERT .THM TO .AVI OR .MPG!!!
.THM IS JUST A SMALL PICTURE OF THE FIRST FRAME OF THE VIDEO!!!
IF YOU DELETED .AVI FILE AND WANT TO PLAY BACK .THM YOU ARE A MORON!!!
Ok, this is clear, but if you have ONLY .thm files and nothing else on memory card, does it mean that the camera is broken or .avi files are hidden (????). This is the first time I use Sony and with my previous camera I had no problem with movies or photos? Does it mean that I did not make a movie? Please...
