I been trying for ages to put mjpeg movies on a casio ex-m20, and im really close now, just cant make it work.

my main problem is:

Im using virtualdub to convert the video to mjpeg, and i tried all the different commercial mjpeg codecs, but none of them work.

and i cant the the free ones (ffdshow etc.) to show up in virtualdub, anybody know why? and microsoft is even supposed to have a builtin mjpeg codec.

so anybody got an idea for another converter program i can use or a way to get virtualdub to see the codecs?

oki i managed to make a movie file that is virtually identical to the ones that the casio camera creates, but it still wont play it.

i made it according to these specifications:

Codec: Motion JPEG including Huffman Tables 'MJPG' <0x47504A4D>
fourcc: mjpg
Kilobits per second: 1059,682
Frames per second: 13,4165
Frame size: 320x240 pixels
Aspect ratio: 1,33
Frame proportion: 3x4
Effective bits per pixel: 1,028
Effective bits per frame 3x4: 79181
Video compression: 95,715%
Power of video compression: 23,3:1
Quality of video: 79181 eff.bits per frame 3x4
24 bit, 805 frm, 13,4165 frm/s, 1059,682 kbit/s
Audio Stream: Microsoft PCM Format <0x0001>, 8000 Hz, 8 bit, 64,000 kbit/s, Mono

anybody actually managed to get mjpeg working on a casio?

Hi, I tried like forever too and none of those codecs worked. I figured out why!
The codec I used is : mjpeg, yuv420p 320x240 , 16 FPS , audio can be pcm_U8 8000Hz mono 64kb/sec.

The problem isn't with the audio, but the video as my camera can run off another audio codec: adpcm_ima_wav 11025 mono 44kb/sec.

The video has to be encoded on a casio exofilm with the video codec: mjpeg, yuvj420p 320x240 and around 15-16 frames per second.

See the difference yuv420p is what is available online for free and other places. We need yuvj420p. What is the difference? Does anyone know of a mjpeg codec that encodes in yuvj420p. I believe FFMPEG on linux might do so. Also I tested makayama 's program for camera's and it encodes in yuvj420p, but can't adjust the audio quality . I found this info. out by opening the files in Total Video Converter, which doesn't have the option for yuvj420p, but can read these files. Any help?

The "makayama" program mentioned by ampaynz1is "Digital Camera Media Studio" and it is supposed to support the EX-M20. You can download a free trial at http://www.makayama.com/digitalcamera.html and/or read about it at http://www.letsgodigital.org/en/news...tory_7565.html
