My video files, attached examples , are not showing up when I try to search for them on the LOG page. Any ideas why this may be?

Hi

Apologies but I am not sure how to add a screenshot to this forum. I have checked the video files with Mediainfo and it says "FileExtension_Invalid: mpeg mpg m2p vob pss evo" but I have no idea what this means. The files all show up when I look in the folders but do not appear when I try and find them in Lightworks in the left hand PANEL.tHE FILES ARE CALLED E.G. MOV008.MOD. I tried to attach two files when I firsat posted but they do not seem to appear anywhere? Thanks for your help.

Lightworks will not recognize MOD files as video.How have they been recorded, and did you rename or convert them?

Please compress the video file (RAR or ZIP) before attaching.

FWIW

For those, like me, who never saw a MOD file.

Thanks Hugly. They were recorded with a Panasonic video camera on to an internal hard disk. I haven't converted them. They play fine on my computer but I really want to be able to edit this old video if I can. can I somehow convert them to a file that lightworks can see? Not sure how to compress the files, any ideas welcome.

It's a while since I've had to deal with this format, but you could try this: make a copy of one of the MOD files and rename it so the extension is no longer .mod, but is now .mpg. See if that is recognised by Lightworks. (I suggest doing this with a copy because it's a long time ago, and I'm only about 80% confident that's the method I used).

If renaming shouldn't help, remuxing with ffmpeg might do. Command line templates are shown on the Wiki page I linked to above under "Conversion to widely accepted formats".

.. If this doesn't help either, please make a piece of this footage downloadable at a file sharing service of your choice. There might be other options to convert.
