Problems playing the movies?

Movies on this page are encoded in a variety of formats and depending on your OS and media player you may need to install additional codecs or media players in order to view them.

For Windows users I recommend the free Combined Community Codec Pack (CCCP) as a good way to install the necessary codecs for the timelapse movies. The pack supports Windows Media Player and other Windows based media players.

For playback of Xvid encoded movies Windows users can use the CCCP codec pack above, or alternatively you can install the free open source Xvid codec directly (Windows and Linux supported). If you already have the commercial Windows DivX player installed then this should happily play the Xvid encoded movies.

WMV format movies should play without problems under Windows Media Player, other platforms may not be able to support playback.

Archived All Sky Cam movies are encoded in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC format. Windows users can use the CCCP codec pack above. Alternatively Linux, Mac and Windows users can download and use the free open source VLC Media Player. Linux users can also use MPlayer.
