    Hey Flyers,

    I'm getting some great footage, but cannot play the videos off the sd card on my PC. I have a powerful gamers machine the runs Windows 7 pro, but footage taken in either QuickTime or MP4 give codex errors.

    Does anyone know where I might download a suitable player?

    Thanks

    Try VLC for Windows. It works with several formats. Or you can get Windows Media Player.

    You can always download the updated codec package from Microsoft. I believe you will be happy with the VLC though.

    Hi, you can use Media Player Classic to play 4K video on windows. It works for P4 video too.
    You can download the player from here .. Home ยท MPC-HC
    And then install the K-Lite codec from here .. Download K-Lite Codec Pack Full
    Mirror 2 link works for me.

    I also had problems playing MP4's on my PC (Don't laugh, I still have Windows Vista), but they would play on my Galaxy Tab A. Downloaded VLC. Problem solved. Did a test flight tonight of my hometown (1080p/60fps) and played with no problem from my card reader. Moved the file from the card to my PC and still no problems. I do want to try one in 2.7 though. If only the recording would automatically start at take off. Oh well, live and learn. Have to learn how to upload and post the videos here.
