Ey guys,

Which codec do I need to play back the MP4 files recorded with the C6? I know you can use Quicktime. But I want to play back the files in Windows mediaplayer or BSplayer. And where can I download this codec? There are so many mp4 codecs but which one is the right one?

I don't know of a specific "MP4" codec that you can install so that the video file plays in WM player. However, the following _FREEWARE_ media players support MP4 files internally without installation of codecs[highlight= rgb(255, 255, 136);]:

VLC player:


Media player Classic:

I find that VLC player gives the best playback, especially when your computer is older and not as "powerful" as the latest models (I mean less RAM and slower processer etc.)
