Re: Viewing transferred videos - needed a new viewer
Did a little web hunting for a solution about viewing smartphone videos and came up with the suggestion to install MediaPlayer Classic, from SourceForge.
I wanted a safe download and went to CNET, which hasn't given me problems in the past, but got a link to an outside download source and a warning that they couldn't assure the safety.
During the install a screen came up asking if I wanted to install a FunTools (or something like that) toolbar. I unchecked ALL the options boxes so it would be installed...sure enough after install I had Media Player Classic, and I also had the toolbar on Firefox and IE. Closed it and reminded myself, next time better find a better download source.
Good news is that I can now view my mms and mp4 videos in the correct orientation.
Now if I want to have others view those files I guess they're going to have to update their viewers as well.
By the way, my favorite viewer is VLC, but even after I updated to the newest versions it couldn't show the S3 videos correctly.
