This is why I usually install VLC PLAYER (see google) if the owner does not want to install the software that comes with the new camera.
I want to find a new camcorder that uses an SD card. But I need to be able to use a card reader rather than hooking up the camcorder to a tv or computer to access my files. I have an old model Samsung that allows me to do that. But it is draining my batteries so it is time for a me one. I did buy a jvc last week and returned it to the store since the only way to play the videos was using the camera.
