Viewing video files on my camera?


I have a Kodak DX6340 digital camera, that can record video as well as pictures. It saves the video as a .mov file, and i was wondering if it was possible to get a .mov file from my computer (ie, not created with a camera) to play on the camera?

Getting the files onto the camera isn't a problem, but when it comes to playing them all i get is "Unrecognised file format".

When i compare a .mov file my camera has created, and one i've created, they're exactly the same (as far as i can tell), same video codec (h.263), same resolution (320x240), same framerate (15.1 fps), same number of colors("millions"), same number of tracks (2), same order of tracks (first = video, second = audio), same audio codec (ulaw 2:1), same sample rate (8000Hz), both in Mono, and i even added the same annotations for the files (Original Format = "Digital Camera", and Information = "EASTMAN KODAK COMPANY KODAK DX6340 ZOOM DIGITAL CAMERA"), the filenames i'm using are the same filename format as the camera is using too.


So, even after all that, i still can't play .mov files from my computer on my camera, i must have missed something, there has to be a way to make them work, what else could be different about the files comming from my camera and the ones on my computer, and is there any way to fix it so it will work?

i could see pictures on my digicam that were jpg's from the pc just by naming them the same. do the videos have the EXACT same name?

in digicams, videos are ussually only 30 seconds long. try cutting it down to hte maximum length your camera can record. if that works, just play a bunch of 30 seconds movies in a "slideshow"

I can view .jpg's on my camera no problem...they don't even have to have the same name.

And as far as i know, the video length on my camera is only limited by the amount of free space on the SD card in the camera...and the test file i'm trying to put on my camera is only 13 seconds anyway

well, there's no mention of it in their faq's, so i've e-mailed them...altough considering one of the questions in their faq was "How do i transfer pictures from my computer to my camera?" and their answer was "It is not possible to transfer pictures from your computer to your camera." i get the feeling they're not gonna be very helpful
