I have a Nikon D600 camera and I have been trying to shoot movies. If I take a few movies and import them to my computer there are always three or four that can't be viewed in Windows media player. The rest can be seen. I have tried VLC viewer as well without success. The movies all have the Quick Time Movie type tag and the file size. However the ones that aren't recognized in the Windows media player don't have a time length and the ones that can be viewed have the time length. This is the warning I see.
<Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.>
Surely if the codec was missing then it would be missing for all of the movies? TIA
BTW I have checked the file for a windows permissions issue and they seem to have the same permissions as the viewed movies.
Checked the tab > Details in the properties of the movie file and there isn't any information listed in the Video part such as Length> Frame width> Frame height> Data rate>Total Bitrate> Frame rate. The movies that can be viewed has the information.
