Is there a video player for iPhone videos on Windows?

I still can't comment, so …:

I assume that your videos that you cannot play are in .HEVC format (.HEIF for images), which is not natively supported by Windows. Hence VLC should be able to play these files. Is it up to date?

To further fix your problem, we need more information:

  • File format of videos that do not play and do not play?
  • Do you play on another computer?
  • Are the files black or what happens if you double click them / open them in VLC? Any error message?

Also, I'm not sure if this is part of Ask Different because it's more of a Windows …

Looking for video platforms.

    Hello everyone, I need a few suggestions. We want to make an interactive video for our travel business. Does anyone have any experience with it? We want it to be attractive and easy to make customer communication more effective. Can anyone suggest a good company to do it?

canon – The EOS 700D freezes in live image / video mode, during JPEG conversion or during fast RAW recordings

see update below.

suddenly my EOS 700D freezes in live view or in video recording mode. Sometimes the live view shows a still image that is several seconds old and is not updated, sometimes the still image contains pixel error patterns. And sometimes the display only shows a colorful gibberish. Taking photos still works fine, in both live view and non-live view modes. After 30 seconds – 1 minute in live view mode, the camera locks completely (only removing the battery works). Recording videos does not work, the video duration remains at 0:00.

Oddly enough, the display of photos and all menus work properly, so it's definitely not a display error. I have just updated the firmware to the latest version (1.1.4 -> 1.1.5) and tried a different lens – to no avail. Both lenses and the SD card work in my EOS 600D.

Unfortunately my camera has an 8 day guarantee, so I have the feeling that this error was fixed (although it is probably just bad luck).

Any ideas what could be causing this error, and maybe how to diagnose / fix it? Here are some pictures.

Thanks in advance, Lukas

TO UPDATE: It has been several months since the original errors occurred and I would like to update you on how the problem has developed afterwards, in the hope that it can help someone.

The camera worked flawlessly, at least for RAW + JPEG pictures without a live image. At some point, even the live view and video mode worked again, so I was already relieved and thought that the problem was solved.

But then, unfortunately two weeks ago, the problems got worse again: suddenly the camera blocked even with normal RAW + JPEG shots through the viewfinder. The video and live view mode also no longer worked. Reinstalling the firmware or formatting / changing the SD card had no effect. I found that RAW-only mode works as expected even with fast shots while locking the camera in every JPEG mode.

For another week, the camera worked flawlessly in RAW-only mode until now, when fast shots even in RAW-only mode caused the camera to crash. This now makes the camera pretty unusable, which is sad since the photos are still fine and the camera is not very old. I have to consider repairs and expect high costs.

UPDATE 2: I still use the camera without repairs. It works reliably in RAW mode, the JPEG mode sometimes even works for weeks and then stops working for weeks. Using live image or video mode appears to kill the camera within minutes, causing everything except RAW to stop working for weeks. But I can do without JPEG and stay with RAW instead of paying the repair cost.

Operating systems – Why can't operating systems keep audio and video recordings in sync?

It seems that any program that supposedly records webcams does not keep audio and video in sync. In addition, there are likely millennia spent by people trying to correct this while editing.

While it is understandable that operating systems need to cache incoming audio and video raw data before compression, gigabytes of RAM are required when needed, and it is less understandable that they cannot keep the two in sync while recording.

This indicates an architectural flaw that is common to the main operating systems. What's the problem?

9.0 pie – How do I record audio in the ASR app while recording video in the camera app?

I have an OPPO F11 Pro model CPH1969EX_11_A.40 with Android version 9 (Pie). I have searched the Internet to no avail.

Is there a way to record audio in the ASR app while video is being recorded in the camera app?

Is that even possible? Am I limited to my Oppo or impossible in Android?

Thanks for your time in advance.

Video – is there a smart alternative to YouTube?

Places like YouTube don't interest decency, politeness. Not much. For things that are considered acceptable there, they would get some very quickly if, for example, they made similar comments here.
I know you can mute them, but they will never take any action on their accounts, or what if you noticed something inappropriate on another's channel? You can mark it and they do nothing.
There are many scammers (such as Flat Earth, official medical hoax theorists …).
Language that is apparently in no way appropriate and acceptable in the intelligent civilized society allowed there and covered by "freedom of expression and opinion".
Vimeo would probably fit, I don't know, but it's just paid.

Video Marketing? – Newbies Lounge

I will examine the following steps:

To plan
To produce
To build


You can never do enough research when it comes to your video marketing strategy. Even if you have a solid foundation, you need to keep an eye on your audience, industry trends, and potential consumers to produce successful video content.

If you already have an effective content marketing strategy, half of your work is done. If not, look at your audience and your company. You have to check your brand and your customers. (Video Marketing Strategy 2018)

Think about what type of video content best appeals to your audience. Think about which style best represents your company. Rate your goals. What do you hope to achieve with your videos? Would you like to drive traffic to your website? Do you want to sell a product or service? Would you like to promote an idea or initiative?

Answering these questions is a good place to start to flesh out your video marketing strategy. Your responses all affect the type of videos you produce or commission.

To plan

The next step is to apply what you learned in the research phase to your video blueprint.

Think about what you want to achieve with your videos and outline the topics and types that you will be dealing with. Here are some examples:

You are a business-to-consumer software company. You may want to split your video plan into different sections: instructions, FAQ, support. These videos may need to be informative to help consumers help themselves and reduce the workload in your customer service department.

You are a nonprofit that makes it easy for small businesses to get started. Your videos are probably webinar-oriented. You may have a weekly course that you would like to film and circulate to help entrepreneurs establish a foundation.

You are a retail company that sells waterproof outerwear. You may want to watch a variety of videos: those that tell consumers how reliable your products are (testimonial), those that promote your products (promotions), those that show your launch party (event).

If you are in the planning phase, you should think about where your content “lives”. Upload to Facebook? Twitter? Instagram? LinkedIn? Each platform requires a different tilt for each video. If you know in advance where your video will be sent to, you can prepare the relevant content.

Also think about how many and how often you want to post videos. This will affect the next step in your video marketing strategy for 2018.

To produce

Once you’ve created a plan based on your research, you’ll be able to figure out who’s actually creating your video content. Fortunately, there are several ways to do this:

Yourself / your team: If you want to produce numerous videos on a regular basis and on a modest budget, this may be the way to go. With today's technology, you can produce videos of decent quality yourself. This will likely take more time to research video techniques unless you have been trained in video production / editing. This strategy can make a huge contribution to the production of multiple videos suitable for social media.

Agency / production company: This is by far a more expensive option, but the video quality will be superior. If you want a video for television or for business use, this is the recommended street. You can hire a creative agency to create content for you. Agencies can work with you from a single project to your entire campaign. You will likely outsource any actual video production you need. It may be cheaper for you to go directly to a production company to create your video content. In this way, the "middleman" is deleted from the equation. If you're looking for a small number of effective videos, working with professionals can help ensure you get what you pay for.

Influencer / blogger: An influencer is essentially someone who has a large following on a social media platform. A blogger or vlogger with a large audience can also be used with this option. Instead of creating the video yourself, you could find an influencer / blogger with a relevant audience and work out a partnership. You can integrate your product or service into their content and thus advertise your company in a credible manner.

To build

The build phase is perhaps the most important phase in your video marketing strategy. After you've done your research, planned your content, and created your videos, you want to get people to watch them.

This requires strategic support. Of course, you want to distribute your videos on your company's website, on social networks and on video platforms. You can also distribute by email. If you are a small business, you can encourage your employees to share your content on their personal platforms.

Another example of promoting your content is writing on a company blog. This gives you another way to share your video: you can share the original video, write the blog post, post it on your website, and then share the website link. You will receive at least two pieces of content with a video.

You will want to keep an eye on the audience. Check out which videos work and which don't. Check out the demographic data of the people who watch your videos. See what videos bring sales to your website / product purchase. With these observations, you can make adjustments.

Rinse and repeat

Maintaining your video marketing strategy is as important as the first one. Always be on the lookout for new information that will benefit your business. Research what works, what doesn't work, what your audience likes, and what trends in the market you can take advantage of. Create new video content. Promote this content.
