I have had a Samsung PL55 for a few years; it’s a good video/camera.
I have taken many videos and opened them with Microsoft XP Professional with no problems. I have also uploaded some videos onto YouTube, all with XP Professional.
I have just gone over to Windows 7 with disastrous results; all that will open are Jpeg Photographs. I can download the video I’ve taken into my computer but it won’t open/play, also Windows Live Movie Maker doesn’t recognise the AVI files from the camera.
I have contacted Samsung in the UK, all they can say is “It’s a cheap camera and won’t work with Windows 7”, this I feel is not good enough as it’s still being sold, I guess under false pretences unless there is a codec I can down load, god knows I’ve tried downloading everyone I can get and the only one that works without paying vast amounts of money for is the VLC Media Player. This will play the video but won’t open in anything else.
Any help from anyone would be appreciated.
