Does anyone know what video and audio codecs the Nikon D800 uses to store its .Mov files? I had head the video part was h.264, but wasn't sure if that is true, and would like to know what the audio part is. Thanks!

Thank you for the information.

It says: "Video compression H.264/MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding"

Are H.264 and MPEG-4 the same thing?

Isn't it unusual for H.264 to have a .Mov extension?

I am trying to play the movies in a DLNA server which supports H.264 but not .Mov, so the movies don't play.

As an experiment, I changed ".Mov" to ".Mp4" and the movie played but not the audio.

HI,

You may need to get the VLC media software/player free from the web, or Quicktime from iJOBS.

Rob,

The DLNA server I referred to is a Linksys WiFi Router EA4500 that has a DLNA server built into firmware. It supports H.264 and MPEG but it's confused by the .mov extension, and by the audio too apparently.

So, the key is to convert the native file to .AVI, save a file as a copy, then re-save it with the .avi extension, see if it opens.

If not, then download the convertor from VLC, it should allow for another format to be rendered.
