Prism Video Converter - Navigation problems

by Sandpebblesfilm / February 13, 2010 11:32 PM PST

I need to convert MOD video files from a JVC camcorder into a YouTube friendly file.

Please keep in mind I'm a total newbie.

When not inside the Prism Video Converter software, I navigate to my video clips which are stored in Windows Gallery - (I have Vista.) Don't know how they got to Windows Gallery - that's where they are.

When inside the Prism Video Converter software, the final step of navigation takes me to en.US instead of to the clips in Windows Gallery. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Uploading JVC .mod files to You Tube

I work for JVC and would like to try and help.

All you should need to do is log on to You Tube, go to your account, and upload your JVC .mod files directly. I do it all the time and it works well.

There is no file conversion needed at all.

I hope this helps.

I had an awful time last week, trying to get the JVC video clips uploaded to YouTube.

Every time I would upload, YouTube would say "upload terminated by user." It happened over and over and over.

Confused and inexperienced, I went to several of these technical forums, asking what could be wrong. I gathered from responses that the MOD files needed to be converted which led me to download the Prism software which led me to the frustrating issues of not being able to navigate to the clips within that software.

At some point on Monday, I read that if my video files could be played with Media Player, they could be uploaded to YouTube. Hmmmmmm.

I uninstalled Prism. I instructed each video clip to be opened with Media Player. I tried again. It worked!

Maybe YouTube was experiencing some kind of repeated glitch. I wasn't the only one on the forum asking the "terminated by user" question. What made my situation confusing was I had never worked with video or YouTube or JVC.

Anyway, I can upload so thank you very much.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
