fz200 video upload... cant find on card?

Hi all,

On a recent holiday, I took some videos with the camera. I have two questions:

1) I can see videos on the camera itself, but when trying to upload these to my laptop I cant find them! I can only see jpegs, or if I go into the AVCHD folder a series of clips that dont do anything. I have rechecked card on the camera and they are still on there. Any ideas for upload? They were taken on iA video.

2) Unfortunately I was extremely ill (my luck) at the wedding I attended. I somehow managed to turn the video on to creative mode and ended up with what appears to be slow motion videos (maybe the high speed setting?) Is there anyway I can get these to appear at normal speed? These do actually appear on another SD card as mp4 files which I can view by apple.

3) Is it possible to get still pictures from the videos or do I need special software to do this?

Many thanks

I find my videos in /PRIVATE/AVCHD/BDMV/STREAM/*.MTS. On my Windows PC, I use VLC Viewer to play them on-screen - not sure what the Apple equivalent might be.

Hope you find yours!

Can anyone recommend software to use with videos? I have found the.MTS files however I cant open them with Windows Media Player.

Many thanks

Might need something better or convert to another format for editing.

I can't recommend any specific video editing software, but both should be no problem.  Note, however, that the HS video will lack any audio track.
