    .CPI Files problem

    Some friends went away and left me their laptop. They have been taking videos and there are some .CPI files they simply cannot open.

    Neither can I.

    I have Googled, posted on a tech forum, etc. None of the trial of freeware programs that say they can open them DO open them.

    According to what I read there are several types of .CPI files - one of them is a high definition file.

    Another type is a file associated with hi def but they are 'junk' files, left over from the recording process.

    I am thinking that when they get back they should ask a store that carries the camera they are using or the place they bought it.



    Anyone? HELP.

    Thanks!

    .CPI is basically this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AVCHD

    VLC can probably open it. If not, you'll have to find some way to convert it to a common format.

    Thanks! VLC looks like it's worth a try. I did read about CPI on Wikipedia and anything else I could find. I'll let you know how it works.

    I had hopes for VLC, but it didn't work.

    Thanks so much for the suggestion, Colin. Now I know what those funny orange-and-white pylon icons are!
