Yes obviously you need Divx or a compatible video codec (like Xvid). You might alsoconsider getting an audio AAC codec, like CoreAAC. It might be best touse PCM audio to do editing. Once converted to an .AVI you canload it up into Windows Movie Maker 2, then you can save it as a .WMV file which is supported by most Windows platforms. Note that if you do this, thennon-Windows users won't easily see your movie. If you use something like youtube to host your video, itwill be converted to Flash, which is supported by most platforms.

My suggestion is, install that DivX codec. Here ya go:

http://www.divx.com/

Actually, instead of that, I suggest installing the 5.2.1 version, which is the last freeware version available that also permits encoding (everything since then has to be paid for).

This is only useful if you ever want toprocess your videousing VirtualDub or other video editor. VirtualDub is a little difficult to understand, but wow is it awesome for doing video effects, and because it is open source anybody can make any kind of effect filter they want for it.

You know what, I heard of a higher-end LG DVD recorder that plays back MP4 video, I just don't know about the AAC audio though. Codecs are a real bone of contention. For instance, with the camera I got Ulead Disc Factory software which included a 30 day trial of the MPEG-2 Codec. That means for the next 30 days, I get to make all the DVDs I want (the codec lets me convert from the camera's MP4 files into DVD-standard MP2). After that I have to buy the license. The software is nice because it lets me make all these fancy DVD features like menus & stuff, but personally I don't really want all that jazz.

My cheap Philips DVP 642/37 DVD player will play the native C6 .mp4 files video portion with no conversion but will not handle the ACC audio. Supposedly the processor in the unit would be able to handle the ACC audio with firmware. The conversion to avi and mp3 is fast though so it is not a problem (13-14X while joining on a P4).

I purchased a Plextor PX-716UF DVD Burner with Roxio EMC 7. The software does not support MP4. Does anyone know of a software program that will capture the MP4 files from the C6 and burn it to a DVD that is then playable on a home DVD player?

Thanks for your help.
