How can I preview my GH4 .mov files on my PC?

Hello,

I have had my Panasonic GH4 for about a week now and have been very pleased with it so far. I just have one problem and that is that I don't get any thumbnails on my clips on my PC. Also when I play them in windows media player I can't fast forward the video. Anyone know how to solve this?

VLC plays the files great with fast forward and so on but I won't get any thumbnail just the damn cone.

Just for the heck of it, try putting QuickTime on your computer if you don't already have it. I don't know if that'll work but it's worth a try. Also, from now on, you should try shooting in .MP4 format. Perhaps the thumbnails will show up on MP4 files instead.

Tried quicktime aswell but no result. Seems like I can see thumbnail on 200mb/s 1080 but not on the 4K and slow-mo files. Must be my computer being too bad.

I suppose you meant "Mb" not "mb". Does the GH4 actually shoot with this rate? I thought it tops at 100 Mbit/s.

Sorry meant 200Mb/s, yes it shoots 1080p at up to 200Mb/s and 4K at 100Mb/s. I accidentaly shot some clips at 200Mb/s but otherwise I only shoot in 4K and 1080p slow-mo at 100Mb/s.
