Importing video from camera

Imported photos and a couple videos from camera flash card. The 2 videos did not show up. Don’t know where they are or is Picasa capable of dealing with videos. Can videos go on a Gift DVD?

Picasa can indeed deal with video files … IF you have the box checked in Tools->Options->File Types->Movies … AND your movie files are one of the supported types: .avi, .mpg, .asf, .wmv and .mov.

These video files however, will not be added to a Gift CD. Last I knew anyway, the Gift CD command only copies picture files.

Here’s the tutorial video on Gift CD┬áin case you haven’t seen it.
