808 Keychain camera - no video problem


Sometimes I get an appropriately large video file and has good audio but no video signal? Have others found this? Any ideas on causes, solutions or recommendations? Thanks

OK I'll ask the obvious, have you accessed and viewed video from the cam before? If not, may be as simple as not having the right codec installed. I believe it's mjpeg, though probably any directshow system should work?

This happens only sometimes. I do view the videos sucessfully most of the time, but occasionally the video signal is just blank, by default it plays with Win Media Player which plays the audio and the random looking picture as if for music. I don't imagine a RESET of the camera would affect this.?? Thanks

Sometimes I now get video with no audio. I tested with another microSD card it did not have any troubles, I believe it's a troublesome SD card.

Try formatting the card.

as soon as you get the big file on the SD with sound but no video.. then the problem is not on the card.. i would guess that it's a camera unsoldered pin, which sometimes just because of vibration doesn''t make any contact with pcb

So far the new card has produced 2 hours of error-free video.

First try putting the card in PC and format it. Secondly, try a different card. The cheapie cards seem to have issues.

I installed and used the VLC program instead of WMP and it worked perfect.
