I bought the Sanyo Xacti CG6 recently and really like the combination of still photo and video. And the MPEG-4 video helps keep the file sizes down.

I have found that not all software will play the video properly, mainly having trouble with the audio. VLC doesn't have any problems of course, but my main photo organiser is Acdsee 9 and that won't play the sound at all. I presume it is because the audio is in AAC-LC format. Is there any way to plug in an additional codec or something for it to play the audio properly?

I also have a problem with my D-Link DSM-520 Media Player. It's great that I can plug the Xacti straight into it via the USB port and look at photos and videos straight away. Trouble is, it has audio problems as well! It does start to play the audio correctly put then it stops. I can sqeeze more audio out of it sometimes by pausing and playing.
Yes, I can play the videos properly using a media server but it would be great to have the instant satisfaction of watching them straight from the camera. Is there anything I can do to solve this or is it too hard as it's the hardware that's the problem? Has anyone else used the Xacti with the DSM-520?

TIA

Do you think I'm managing to confuse enough people? It's been a tough weekend (not really) so maybe I need some sleep!

I'd better quit while I'm behind.
