HI guys new to this so hope someone can help. Have a standard 3 with 8gb sd card I can view pics on phones and a ps3 consol with no troubles at all. But it won't let me view videos. I changed video to mp4 from mov. Even played around with resolution to the same as a mates. He can vies his videos but I cant on my card. Thanks.

One painless way to view your videos is to remove your SD card from your AC and insert it into an SD card reader. Then insert the SD card reader into a windows desktop usb port. The windows desktop will recognize the SD card as a device and you can then access the videos, click on them, and they should play. I like to copy them to my desktop's hard disk after viewing - it only takes a few seconds.

More info needed:
What do you mean you can't view them? They are not there? You get an error viewing them? How are you accessing the files? (i.e Drone connected to PC via USB, SD card removed from drone insetered into card reader connected to a Windows PC).

If its an error you are getting when attempting to view them within Windows (i.e. Media Player), try installing K-lite Codec Pack

You're using a Playstation? Potentially it doesn't have the codecs necessary to view the video. Try on a real computer.

what media player
what format.
what device works
what device doesn't work
download a differ media player etc.
etc, etc.

How do I cast a vote for something that only has one choice and even that choice doesn't make sense?

Bottom line:

1. Remove card from Phantom
2. Insert into card reader connected to computer
3. Either play videos from card or copy to a folder on the computer and play them from there. You can download VLC media player free if nothing else is working.

VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!

It's entirely possible that the codec used to encode them is different for the ones on the flight controller. On the bird however it's controlled by the software onboard.
