I guess it didnt have .mod because it was saved to documents?
I guess iof it had .mod it would be easy to change and hence would work with Youtube, Photobucket etc?
Im lost but half way there =)
Are you trying to upload from the camcorder/rename straight to the internet?Remember not to try and rename the file on the JVC hard drive...Copy it from the JVC hard drive
to the pc hard drive first
rename the file from .mod to .mpg. (the new file on the pc hard drive/not on the JVC drive).. then test the renamed file on the pc hard drive first
before uploading by:Double-clicking on the file
and see if it opens in Windows Media Player. (Or open WMP and navigate to the .mpg file and open it.)
If it won't play during the test, this probably means that you copied from the wrong place/wrong file from the JVC hdd folder...
If so, while connected to the pc, go to the folder on the JVC hard drive that starts SD_VIDEO
, then to a sub-folder starting with PRG...
-- in that sub-folder should be the .mod file: that will look like MOV123.mod
(will be different three numbers that come after MOV, 123 is an example.) Then right click/copy
that file. Then right click/paste it to your pc hard drive.
(Anywhere you want/you can even name a new folder for it.)
If you didn't get the right file(s), copy from a different location from the JVC hard drive to the pc hdd and try again with the test.(Although I'm pretty sure it's in the SD_VIDEO/PRG
folders as mentioned above.)
Again, if you can double-click on the file you renamed to .mpg and it opens and it plays in WMP, then it worked. Then
you can upload to the internet.Remember to first disconnect your camcorder by doing the safe remove, then upload the file from your pc hard drive, to make sure you are not trying to upload a file from the camcorder's hard drive.
You can always delete the files you had copied to the pc, since they are just a copy of what's on the JVC drive. but:never delete the files on the JVC hard drive with your pc..this will mess things up.
(The JVC hard drive in the camera and the pc hard drive are two different drives.)
Only delete files on the JVC hard drive/camcorder using the camcorder's manual functions on the camcorder (the hand-operated controls on the camera),
I have a feeling you'll get it this time.
