Problem loading Samsung NX3000 H.264 MP4 shootings to Windows Movie Maker
“Hi, all, I have a problem loading movie files generated by my Samsung NX3000 digital camera. The files in question are .mp4 with an H264 codec. When I open the video, I don’t get the “Preparing Video …” progress bar at the bottom or the video clip images on the right which I can use the edit tools on. The images on the right are stuck at 7 seconds and appear black. Does any one know what I should do to expect a stable and reliable editing workflow? What advice can you give? I would really appreciate any help. Thanks.”
