I took my new camera to a festival this weekend to try it out. I got some good shots and videos, which I've uploaded to my laptop. The videos (.mov files) play fine on the camera but not on my laptop. I first tried VideoLAN, which was very choppy, then Apple Quicktime, which wasn't much better. Then remembered the software that came with the camera, ViewNX2. This is better but still not right.
Does anyone know if this is likely to be a problem with my laptop (speed etc.) or is there something I can try within the software? Maybe I need to convert the file to a more suitable format? But I'm not sure which one would be best for this.
Any advice gratefully received!
For reference, my laptop spec is:
Intel® Core2 Duo CPU
T5250 @ 1.50GHz
1.50GHz, 2.99GB RAM
OS MS Win XP Pro 2002, SP2
I hope this helps!
