    you must stop the recording when your done or the file will be corrupt.

    Windows media player will play it and needs no additional codecs.

    How are you transferring your images/video? Like previous poster said, Win machines should have necessary codecs built it.

    Be sure to stop recording using the app on your phone. Next take the micro SD card out of the back of the camera. If your computer will accept a micro SD card slide it into your computer. Alternatively, if your computer wont accept the micro SD card you'll have to get a card reader. Put the micro SD card into the reader and plug the reader into a USB port. The reader will come up in your computer as an external storage device. You'll find your videos in a folder on the external drive.

    Put the videos back on the card and put it back in the P2V camera. Turn on the P2V and leave it on for about a minute. Turn it off, take out your card and try viewing them. If you don't stop the app from recording the video files are not finalized therefore they won't play on the PC. When the P2V camera starts up it first looks for any files that aren't finalized and it will then finalize them.

    I had a similar issue last week. Make sure that the memory card is totally clean before you put it into the Vision. Delete all files from in on your PC and then format the card using the app. It should work fine after that.
