    Does anyone know the codec that DJI uses to record video to the card in the Vision camera? It seems to be some variant of h.264, but I cannot find a converter that can read it and convert it to something editable. The only work around I've found is to transfer it to my iPhone, then copy that file for editing.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks Roger - that looks like h.264 to me. I wonder why none of the converters or edit software can read it.
