The Canon EOS 7D is an 18 megapixel digital SLR camera incorporating a new APS-C CMOS sensor designed and manufactured by Canon. It records HD videos in 1080P (1920*1080) with 30/25/24 video frame rate, or 720P (1280*720) with 60/50 video frame rate. The recorded videos are in QuickTime MOV format with H.264/MPEG-4 Video Codec and uncompressed PCM audio Codec.
When searching some information about Canon 7D, I notice that the Canon 7D owners often encounter problems of playing the 7D H.264 MOV movies with Windows Media Player, for example: “Yesterday I tried shooting some video from my 7D for the first time and when I got back and downloaded the videos to my computer, Windows media player would not show the movies? Just a black screen. Can anyone recommend a software that can playback and edit 7D videos so I can have a look at them.” The best way I recommend is to convert the Canon 7D MOV videos to WMV or AVI compatible with Windows Media Player. So just follow the step by step tutorial below with the help of aPubsoft Video Converter.
Preparation: For the preparation of this conversion, connect Canon 7D camera to PC via USB Cable and transfer the MOV movies into hard drive.
Step 1: Load Canon 7D H.264 .mov footage to the best Canon 7D MOV Converter.
Free Download and run aPubsoft Video Converter as the best Canon 7D MOV converter. Click the "Add" button to load .mov videos from 7D camcorder.
Batch video files are allowed to be imported; therefore joining several video files into big one is supported by ticking the checkbox of “Merge into one file” under the preview window.
Step 2. Set AVI or WMV as output format for playback.
Click “Format” bar to determine output format. Follow “HD Video” template and select “WMV HD (*.wmv) or “AVI HD Video (*.avi)” as output video format.
Step 3. Adjust video and audio settings to keep 1080p or 720p HD quality.
Click "Settings" button, then you will be able to adjust audio and video parameters on the popup window to customize the output file quality, these adjustable parameters include codec name, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channel. To maintain original HD quality, you may set “original” in the fields of “Size”, “Bitrate” and “Frame rate”. To downsize the Canon 7D .mov files, just set a smaller bitrate.
