Failed to Play Halloween Party Videos on VLC/QuickTime/Windows Media Player, Solved Now

At Halloween, what you love to do maybe not just dress you up as horrible as much, but record a scary film at Halloween party on your own to watch and enjoy in the following year. But when you decide to play this Halloween Party Videos on VLC/QuickTime/Windows Media Player excitedly, you maybe get frustrated cause not all camera video can be played on VLC/QuickTime/Windows Media Player.

Camera videos presents XAVC, MXF, MOV, MPEG-4, AVI, etc format. For example, Nikon and Canon use Quicktime containers with H.264 codecs to create their camera-original files on the most current cameras, which can be shown as MOV format. But many first-generation DSLR cameras from Nikon wrote AVI files. So from time to time, when you play recorded Halloween party videos on VLC/QuickTime/Windows Media Player, you probably play an unsupported video unfortunately. 

Here, I suggest you to simultaneously convert the recorded Halloween video to a more compatible format like MP4 when you put it to your computer. You can choose to use Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac to achieve the goal. It is a Mac video converter, which is designed to convert any audio/video of different formats to other various formats like, H.265, MP4,M3U8, etc without hassle. So no matter what format your camera video is, you still can transcode the Halloween party video to VLC QuickTime/Windows Media Player. For some 4K camera, this program can downscale 4K Halloween video to 1080p for your media players.
