If your computer meets the above requirements (Mine is a dual core 2 1.5 ghz but still played slow), try using the latest windows media player, the video should play a lot better and also try looking at it in the arcsoft total media software program that came with your 720. The video(s) should play without any problems.

What you can also do as a workaround if your current PC is simply too slow and you don't have an alternative machine, is to convert the video into another format that uses a less intensive codec temporarily so you can at least view it. I have used the same principle where even the Standard Definition VGA video files from Sanyo or Aiptek Camcorders were not able to play on old PC's. I just converted then using Windows media Encoder to a lower quality and bitrate that would play. Of course that might seem as defeating the purpose of getting a High Definition Camcorder in the first place, but you can still archive the original video footage for when you finally do get a PC that is able to play them!

Candy congrad's what program did it come with?

is Arc total media just a win media player? b/c the older ones only came with windows media plyer converts ALL apple and files to a non viewable icon

As I mentioned earlier

SUPER once found and set up it works wonders

The total media extreme package is EXTREMELY basic which pisses me off because other hardware that comes with this get the full version which has backup and MANY more features. This software literally only comes with digital theatre to watch video and the create videos/burn to dvd. Oh well, better than nothing. The disc has the wmv 11 decoder on it.

Sorry I should have said it DOES have editing. Digital theatre, create/burn dvds/videos and a very basic editing feature.

Btw, I got ulead and man that thing runs slow sometimes and im on a dual core 2! I only have 1 gig of ram though. btw, do you ever use tmpg inc (spelling?) convertor?
