KX Video Transfer Question

I've been playing around with the KX video after racking up about 400 pictures in the last two days and have run into an issue. Search didn't turn up anything and nothing that I saw in the manual, may have missed it though.

Video played back normal on camera, but in .avi format on the computer, it was just scrambled on both software systems I use primarily for video. Converted the video over to .wmv and .flv format and the video played just fine on the computer.

Any ideas?

Which computer system do you have? I.e. Windows or Mac?

If Windows, you need codecs installed for Windows Media Player or just use VLC to play .avi files. This company also has a Mac version in case you're using that system.

Try installing Media Player Classic to your computer, it installs most codecs for you.
