I have some cheesy cameraslike the Brinno Garden Cam and several Wildview Game/Trail cameras. They produce some interesting footage for me that I'd like to be able to use.
The Wildviews are .avi files, usually around 50MB or less, 640x480, 29 frames per second, data rate of 1853 kbps, total bitrate of 2206 kbps.
The Brinno records time lapse (one picture at a time) and makes an .avi file out of it. They range from 5 to 20 MB each. Windows doesn't show any specs beyond that for those files.
Both files play fine in Windows Media Player.
