My dad was taping my school varsity football game. He was use the same camera that he used for three years now. But he was using a new 32GB sandisk SDHC card  which he just used another one to tape my game and it was fine. But when we try to get the video this keep popping up "The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file."Its not the file type (MP4) because on other cards it works.

Normally file types that WMP (Windows Media Player) try to open are unsupported. Let's say that MKV won't work on WMP, because it doesn't support it. The only solution I can think of is trying VLC Media Player: http://www.videolan....ad-windows.html.


Read instructions carefully and beware offers during installation as those are unnecessary. Once Installed open VLC and in the corner go to media and click open, Then navigate to the SDHC card and open the video.


It should play the file now.
