Q: Solved: MPeg2 Icon/Not showing begining video clip

Hi! I have a Sony DCR SC82 HDD video camera. I had my 500gb hard drive fail (and replaced) I have reinstalled the Sony program. I have gone into Motion picture browser and selected the my drive F: (500gb) be the registered viewed folder. I only have the MPEG2 video icon show up. I cannot get the beginning video clip to display. I have checked to see if the MPEG2 option has been checked, everything thing else seems to be the same. BUT no opening video clip. It makes it rather hard for editing when all you see is the same icon..... Any ideas??? Please.
Thank you in advance.

I had this problem before, but for the life of me I cannot remember how to fix it. My new camera does video in avi format. Once I have downloaded the files all that is showing is the AVI icon. How do I get it to show the beginning video clip? I have 30 avi icons and have to go through each one to find out what is on it.......

I've converted an AVI to MPEG2. I think I can just burn it on a DVD as a data disc and it should play on my DVD player (I've got one that plays DivX).
Is that correct?
There's also a tool called dvd video in my burning software that enables you to put your file into video_TS before burning, but my mpg2 won't go inside it.
I believe I can change my .mpg file extension to .VOB and that this might then go into the video_TS folder. Would there be any point in doing this? Just want to watch the clip on my dvd player.

When I am trying to play a downloaded torrent movie, the windows media player is opening and then only the sound comes with a green square. No pictures appear in the square. Just a plain green square. Under properties for the file it says, "Video Clip".

I updated the graphics drivers and also have the latest java updates. The funniest part is that in the same course of download there are other files which are playing perfectly. It's just a couple of them that are not playing.

I've just brought Sansa Clip+ 2GB MP3 Player...
I've plugged the usb cable into my computer and I've noticed It isn't showing me the full size...

I've got only 1.60GB Free from 1.80, I did a format from the mp3 itself and from the computer...


There isn't any hidden files or system protected files...

How can I solve this?

A:Sansa Clip+ - Not showing full capacity

The space has probably been taken up by firmware. The MP3 Player will need this to run.

Formatting wont get rid of it as it will most probably be locked by manufacturer.

Whatever you do, do not delete that firmware as you will only end up having a fqancy looking USB stick.

On windows 8.1, my taskbar, one day, suddenly stopped displaying the audio icon on the taskbar. When I right click it, go to the properties, and click customize, it doesn't show the audio icon as an option. When I click, "turn system icons on or off," I can see the audio icon, but it is locked to off. I don't know where to look from here.

A:[SOLVED] Not Showing Audio Icon On Taskbar

Method 1:
There is no option available in control panel volume settings to show volume icon like earlier operating system. In Windows 8 and 8.1 you can enable volume icon by modifying ?Turn system icons on or off? option.
Right click on or near time clock in notification area and select Properties.

Make sure Volume icon is set ?On? as shown below, if it were off, make it on to show volume icon.

If the above step hasn?t help, ?Restore default icon behaviors? which may bring back the missing icon.

This is the normal procedure to get back the volume icon. In case the Volume icon option ( on/off) grayed out and you can?t change it, then follow the method 2.

Method 2: If volume icon is missing and you can?t enable it from ?Turn system icons on or off? area, then that could be an issue with explorer process. The following two methods can solve the issue.
a) Kill the explorer.exe from Processes or Details tab under task manager. Find out all explorer.exe and kill them, make sure no explorer.exe is running in the task manager. After that, on the file menu select new process or Run (or new tasks), type ?explorer? and press OK. It will start the new explorer process. That should bring back the volume icon, if it hasn?t, redo the method 1

This method has brought back missing volume icon on my Windows 8.1 computer.
b) Registry modification- Its recommended to take a backup before modifying registry.
Open registry editor in Windows and find out;
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify

After modifying registry keys, you need to kill and restart the explorer.exe process to take effect.

I have no problems with the connection itself, but only with that status icon's wrong display.

This happend after I installed software for a bluetooth usb adapter. I have searched the web for the same problem and tried the suggested fixes: uninstalled the software, uninstalled the network adapters (wired and wireless), deleted iconchache.db file but none worked for me.

I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.

Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.

Here's what I mean in graphic form:

It's bugging me to no end. Anyone else had this problem/resolved it?

A:Toolbar on taskbar should only be showing an arrow but is showing icon

Hello thewonkits, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I notice this happens when using small icons for a toolbar. If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, right click on the dotted separator line to the left of the two top far left toolbars (one at a time) click on View and Large Icons, then lock the taskbar to see if that may look ok to you. It will make the top row a bit bigger though.

Hopefully someone may know a better way to hide that bit of icon poking out when locked.

Delete all your codecs, then go install only the needed ones, like xVid and diVx along with your standard Windows media codecs package. (

All i discovered was I have the ability to Place videos off of the internet directly into my slides without having to download anything. I wonder if this is true for 2007? If it is, and you got your video directly off of the internet, you might be able to bypass such an error. You copy the embedded code and paste it into your slide (either that, or using the add video feature). Such as this:

Are you able to do this? Otherwise, I am not sure there is a way to do what you want it to do, as I cannot test your program myself. Try seeing if the error happens with preloaded videos on your computer, or just different videos in general. Look through the settings, etc. for options that deal with this.

I tried to make a VCD(because of size constraints) out of it with Nero 6. WRONG! The picture was upside down and backwards. After reading some things on this message board, I decided to get TMPGeg Plus and use it. When I walk through the wizard to make the SVCD from the divx file (approximately 70 minutes in length and about 650 mb) it tells me that the size of the new file will be 2700 mb and about 6 hours to encode. I want to put this file on a 700 mb/80 min CDRW. How can this be? I thought it was based on the length of the file and not the size. Please help. Any suggestions would be great!! THANKS!

Amongst many video clips, SOME show only a 'generic' thumbnail FOR A PLAYER
rather than for the clip content. Make Video Thumbnails can extract JPGs from
(not all) the video clips with extensions like avi, mpg, wmv, swf, flv, etc. So then there are two files with the same name but different extensions (a JPG and a video-extension). How can the video clip file absorb the JPG so that the videoclip will show the image thumbnail, rather than the generic player thumbnail ?
OR - how can the original video clip be 'repaired' to show a content-thumbnail ?

A:Repairing a video clip thumbnail

Hi Sebastian
You one thumbnail has jpg under it this could happen if you have accidentally opened up with a graphics program or while editing you put a jpeg in with the video.

We have a DVD video from our son's high school football game. I'd like to extract just one play and turn it into a flash video so that we can send it to family, or perhaps we'll upload it to YouTube.

I have no experience with video and no video editing tools. What's the easiest and least expensive way to get this job done (besides finding a friend who can do this for me ;-)?

A:How to extract a clip from a home video?

Use DVD Shrink (free) to extract the portion (in reauthor mode).

I have 3 videos of my daughter as a baby and someone transferred clips from video to DVD for me. I want to edit the 3 DVDs and put them in the right order. The DVDs are VOB files and I have used PRISM (a web converter to make them AVI files in order to mix and match the clips. They now play upside down! The original DVDs play the right way up. Any ideas?

I was interviewed on television news. There is a clip on yahoo that I can view but not download. It is located here:

I have read the suggestions on the forum using firefox browser. The unplug add-on cannot do it. The “download them all” add-on does not even have an option to download. And another video downloader says it is in some sandbox?

The link may not be available for long so any speedy suggestions would help.

Hi there
Can anybody please tell me how I can add motion and still images to already finished video clip's-for instance say I want to add a image fading in across the screen of a music video clip or have a rose falling down the screen.
On the otherhand how do I add a picture pasted into the clip, like pasting myself standing in the crowd or my photo appearing/showing on the stage big screen on the video clip.
I would also please like to know how I can take a scene out of a dvd movie and incorporate that part into my video project.All the above also with option of added text.
I am using pinacle studio 9+ for editing purposes & would appreciate it extremely if you guy's can help me.

P.S Sorry all,I have mistakenly selected a poll-promise to behave better in future.

A:Video clip editing/altering

Every NLE has specific ways to acheive your goals. I use Vegas video and this is how I would do it.

1. Create second track with image above video---play with compositing so that the image is seen to blend--for the rose falling down the screen--create the rose in photoshop , bring it in with a transparent background--set it on its own video track---then key frame the falling motion.

2. It's illegal to "take a scene from a DVD movie" and incorporate that into your video project--unless of coures you want to pay a fortune to the movie company--there is software that will do this but--as I said--its illegal.

Originally, i took the video clip with my Samsung Galaxy phone and the clip saved to the phone gallery sitting the correct way up. When i transferred the clip to my computer through usb utilities it is on it`s side (see attachment). I already converted the mp4 to wmv but that wasn`t suitable for windows movie maker, so i converted it to avi with Prism and that rotated it also., but the audio didn`t work. Any clues please?

I recently upgraded to the MS 2007 Enterprise suite on our media computer, and having trouble playing video in PowerPoint. I insert my movie via Insert > Movie > Movie From File. I found out that if I right-click and Preview the movie, it will play fine in my slide, however when running the slide show it will play only audio.

It will play audio only either when asking it to start automatically or on click.
It is listed as MS Compatible files (WMV).
The movie is located on the PC locally in the same folder as the PPT.
The movie plays fine in Windows Media Player.
I've read through "Compatible multimedia file formats" and "My movie doesn't play" articles on MS website regarding version 2007.
I've installed the "Windows Essentials Media Codec Pack" from
Please advise, any help is greatly appreciated!


A:Unable to present video clip PPT 2007

I believe that there is a limit on the size of that file, so super large files would not work.

Hi...I have downloaded some movies and are attempting to watch them. Some work fine...while others don't. I use media player and it tells me that it doesn't support the file or codec. Then if i try again.. it tells me it can't play a .AVI file. Can this be fixed?

A:can't play "video clip (.AVI) movie...why?

even though it is an avi file it might be a divx or other compressed avi file, and WMP does not have the codec to play it.

Yes there is a fix, download this codec pack and install it

Now the movies will play.

I am trying to burn an mpeg2 file to a blank dvd. The correct file has been copied, and is now 'waiting to burn to disc'...however when I click the share tab, and then click 'Burn to Disc', nothing happens. No msg pops up and no action is happening. It is a 16x dvd. I used to do this in Windows 7 and never had a problem. Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

A:Solved: Trouble burning mpeg2 file to dvd in Windows 8

Depending on if you have Windows Media centre installed, some computers with 8 pre installed especially if 8 professional had the free Windows media Centre

If not open Windows Media player, bring your file to there and then after inserting the DVD click burn
on the right

I am honestly not sure if it will work, try formatting the DVD before you try the burn

The reason I say I am not sure is that I have a triple boot with 8 pro, 7 pro and xp, but I have burnt dvd`s on 8 no problem, with no additional burning software, but not mpeg files

I am just about to sign off if that does not work
See this

NOTE PLEASE the caution re the OPT out required for the toolbar and home page change

I have just checked as well and I do not think MPEG2 will play on 8 in WMP let alone burn without added software

Good luck
signing off

A:Solved: Computer not showing video on monitor

Geek Squad techs are idiots if they tried to boot your hard drive in one of their computers to get your data off. I'm hoping they simply told you the wrong thing.

To recover the data, attach the drive to another computer via an adapter like this:
No booting required for this method and this, or a variation of this, is how its usually done.

As long as the drive is not faulty or encrypted this should work. Just access it though My Computer and use copy and paste to get the files of it.

As for the laptop, it might be a write-off. DV6000's with the the AMD CPU and nVidia chipset experienced massive failures due to a flaw in the nVidia chipset and poor HP quality for high rate of failure and some of the other problems with the units. HP had a write up on their website about the chipset issue, but shortly after the "Extended Service" ended they pulled the write-up...

However a Google search still results in plenty of info:
