phantom-3-windows-media-player

I’m having transferring videos from the Phantom 3’s sd card and my computer? I’m currently on Windows 7 and after transferring the videos I try to open them using Windows media player (So that I can eventually edit through windows movie maker) but it just comes up with an error message saying windows doesn’t support the codac used to compress the file. Any solution or workaround for me to play DJI Phantom 3 video in Windows Media Player properly?

Digging around the net, we found that more than one Phantom users are troubled by the issue. By further searching, I get my problem resolved. As we know, DJI Phantom 3 can record videos in MP4 or MOV format. But the point here is, WMP doesn’t seem to play well with MOV files. MP4 will play but not the preferred format for high-dollar editing (fine for the average user though). You might also want to download and install two things: QuickTime player and the KLite Codec pack. Well, it’s a complex task and the codec pack would probably get your computer messy.

An ultimate solution I’ve found is that convert and compress DJI Phantom 3 4K MP4/MOV to Windows Media Player most compatible format in proper settings(1080p is the optimal choice.).
