Videos won't play on pc



the videos I've recorded with my camera will not play on my pc anymore when I connect my playbook to my pc. (The videos that I've recorded previously do though). So I'm talking about the videos I've recorderd after I'd installed the new update...(but before restarting the playbook, I've restarted meanwhile and that doesn't help either)

I've noticed that the difference betweet the videos that do play and those that don't in the tab 'Properties' the framehighth and framespeed aren't mentioned although they are mentioned with the videos I've recorderd before the update.


Can someone help please?

Re: Videos won't play on pc

Re: Videos won't play on pc



thanks for the respons: I've downloaded VLC and it works just fine. Any idea why all of the sudden this changed and that the old videos still can be played with Media Player, has it to do with the update maybe?
