That being converting, saving, and playing back the file.

The files run fine in quicktime and WMM but when I save them they play back all pixelated and with pink blotches everywhere. Frame rate is rather stilted too.

My system is Window 7 and I have the latest update of Windows Essentials.

I have tried converting them to AVI files but get a similar result.

I'm sure there is something obvious that I am missing, but I have been through all the advice at the start of this thread and can't see where I might be going wrong.
First Standard Answer is to ask you to download and try the Freeware VLC media viewer - It is known to display most files on most machines, even when the local OS provided programs don't.
let us know how this gets on with your files straight off the camera, and on the ouput of your editor(s). - short sample videos help a lot in diagnosise.
