I cannot get the videos I shot to play in Quicktime. They will play in another program I have called VLC, but it's much more of a hassle.

It is set to 720x480 at 30fps and High Quality. I think I selected LCD for Output, but not sure. The other options are PAL and NTSC. I'm using this on the Photon XT.

Any suggestions?

Miro Video Converter - will turn them into mp4 or mov

Or import straight into IMovie and edit them and output them as mov.

No suggestions to make Quicktime play them.

Thanks for your thoughts. I tried calling UNV but their phone number doesn't work (?).

Converting with Miro results in significant loss of audio quality, as well as a buzzing sound not previously present.

iMovie will not import or read the files.

They are already MP4, but I cannot work with them.

Hey He'sDeadJim,
Sorry you are having trouble getting through. Feel free to email me at Tyler@UltimateNightVision.com. I'm always available there.
Here is a note from the MDVR product page:

Quote:
NOTE: The MDVR saves .AVI video files compatible with Windows operating systems. Apple PCs will require a .AVI to .MOV video file converter to view and edit video files.

http://www.ultimatenightvision.com/DVR-Recorder-for-Thermal-Scopes-p/unv-mdvr.htm

That said, the MDVR does not record files compatible with Apple computers, although they will play just fine in dropbox or youtube on your iPhone.
Thanks

Tyler

Tyler,

Thank you for responding. That is really too bad. I'm sure you didn't set up the MDVR to not work with Macs intentionally.

Try the VLC program for MAC, it should play that file type no problem.

Thanks. As I said in Post #1, I have VLC and it plays them. However, I cannot figure out how to go frame-by-frame in VLC (when viewing the kill shot). Do you know how to do this?

Sorry about that, must have misread your post.

Anyway, I googled "frame by frame vlc" and below was from the first website I found. Not sure if you've tried the shortcut yet? Hope this helps!



If you're like me, you enjoy doing things faster. Using keyboard shortcuts can help you spend less time looking for buttons or menus, and more time enjoying music and videos. So take a moment to become a more efficient by reading over these VLC shortcuts:

Space: toggle pause/play

F: toggle full-screen (you can also use Esc to leave full-screen mode)

Z: change zoom mode

Ctrl + Up / Down: Adjust volume up/down (you can also use mouse scroll wheel for this)

M: toggle mute

T: display time remaining/elapsed

+ / -: play media faster/slower

S: stop play

Ctrl + H: toggle control display

E: watch video frame by frame

V: toggle subtitles

P: previous item in media que

N: next item in media que
