Re: Capture video from camcorder

It's getting worse. I seem to have lost the original display format. But I have got a red record button now. But playing from the camera now produces no display on the screen either - at least it was doing that OK. In File Manager there's no sign of the video camera, so no hope yet of just uploading...

Re: Capture video from camcorder

Interesting. Not sure how I get the advanced GUI?
At present, I see a Record option in the pull-down menu, but it's greyed-out, so not useable.

Re: Capture video from camcorder

I got a couple of filenames which I had specified in vlc. They appeared afterwards as [fname].mpg4 but on trying to play them vlc continued for the length of the recording (short, to test it) but without any video shot being displayed. Suggests to me that they were blank files, at least as far as vi...

Capture video from camcorder

I am trying to capture videos from a Panasonic camcorder (tapes) to my MX16 system using VLC Media Player. I have got as far as being able to watch them in vlc, but I have failed to capture the video file to hard disk so that I can then edit the videos. The furthest i have got is to produce a file w...

Opening MX Folders on Networked machines

I find that networked machines are unable to open some folders on my MX16 machine unless they have previously been accessed directly by the MX16 system. (Once previously opened there is then no problem.)
Is there something I can do to make this unnecessary?

Re: VMware internet and file access

This seems to have solved itself - it now works OK. SOLVED.

VMware internet and file access

I have two windows systems installed on VMware on MX16 fully updated. In both cases I have set to access the web and my local network, and also to access certain host machine folders. That far looks OK. However, (and this is the same for both Win systems) running the systems under VMware I can neith...

Re: Printer HP5440 won't print

Thank you. Yes, Both Enabled boxes are checked.
I also tried checking the Share box, but it made no difference.

Printer HP5440 won't print

Just connected my USB printer HP5440. MX16 found the printer OK and did the set-up automatically, but when I try to print a test page it tells me it's doing that and has reached 24%, and then stops, leaving the job in the print queue. Nothing prints. Trying to print anything else also stops, leaving...
