    Download VLC media player and they should play in that. For future videos change your recording format to MP4 and they should play in Windows.

    Windows media player won't do 2.7k, either down load another viewer like QuickTime or record at 1080p

    I have a windows machine. All though my videos load onto it fine, I edit with moviemaker. Should be on every windows pc. Its kinda short on the effects and animation, but it works for me.
