...I always get the error message '3 ivx video decoder'...


So you can access the files but you can't play them? Sorry but I am not exactly sure what you mean by "once the icon (fileshare) is downloaded". If you can download the files but you can't play them, then download and install this player: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ Once it is installed run the VLC player and then drag and drop your video on the VLC Player window in order to play it.

I wonder if the file type is associated with a program.

This sounds like a possible Codec Issue. ( For GIG's benefit a CODEC is basically software that converts electronic signals forming the video in to signals the media player program on your computer can understand)

GiG if you can , plug your cam into the lap top, then open up file explorer. If you see it as a device then look at opening it up further until you see the list of files that are videos. Does it say say what format they are in? You are looking for a file name with something like .MP4 or .AVI at the end. You may need to modify the view to include file type. Otherwise right click on one and look at "Properties"

To solve Codec issues I have downloaded the Free CCCP (Combined Community Codec Pack) http://www.cccp-project.net/(which comes with a mediaplayer and the Light Alloy Free player from http://www.light-alloy.ru. They are Russian. Chances are the Kremlin can see all the kiddies videos on the PC's with this software...I hope Putin enjoys "Peppa Pig"

Thanks folks - I'm now sick to death playing with this Flip and Windows - and I don't have enough time to be experimental.

- I'll try some of your further suggestions at the weekend.

She must’ve installed and is using the camera manufacturer’s proprietary junkware.

The “…share” is a tale-tell sign of bloatware designed to make you create yet another junk account online so that they can expand their marketing reach because they know that most people can’t figure out the Windows file manager to access their stuff.

OK - I had another shot at downloading the 'Flip fileshare' info off the Flip - which I now connected into a different USB port as per Boom's suggestion - and as I was going to download I saw from the File Explorer a command that 'disabled downloading software for devices' was "ON" to save metered internet (or something like that) - but since I have unlimited broadband I turned this to "OFF" and proceeded. I really thought this might be *it*.

But it was all exactly the same - the fileshare icon arrives on my desktop but when I try to use it to view my videos it tells me it needs a repair which I do - and then reboot - and then again when I try to download it tells me my software is "corrupted" and to uninstall and install again! Grrr!

This Flip would have been in the bin by now but I was the only one recording my best friend's second wedding and she's going to be heartbroken. :cry:

Forget the flipshare software. You do not need it.

Either the flip camera will show up in windows explorer when you plug it in it or it will not. If id does show up in windows explorer then just open the folder DCIM and your videos will be in sub folders within this folder (folder will be called 100Video or something like that). Copy the video files within these sub folders to your laptop. If they do not play when you double click these copied video files then right click and try open with and see if you can find a program they will play in. If you can not then download and install vlc as sotos said and play them with this.

I could and even would use teamviewer and skype to remotely connect to your machine and fix any issues and talk you through what you need to do but I suspect you would rather do without than accept such an offer of help from myself.

Oh for crying out loud woman… just get someone to help you out because (with all due respect) you’re completely useless when it comes to computers! :lol:

Damn, I thought my wife was bad... she's a fucking Einstein with Windows compared to you! :lol:
