How to play videos on Windows PC

For Windows PC computers, we recommend VLC Media Player version 2.2.8. This video player is free, safe, and has a easy frame-by-frame option. The videos can be played with VLC on PC's running Windows 8, 8.1, or 10. Note: Windows 7 computers are not compatible.

To Install VLC on your Windows PC:

  1. Follow this link: Download VLC Media Player.
  2. Open the “Windows PC” folder, then click on the file.
  3. Click the blue "Download" button. The drop-down may list “Direct download” or “Save to my Dropbox.” You can select “Direct download.” 
  4. At the bottom of your screen, click the arrow (^), then select Open.
  5. You will be asked if you want to allow this application to make changes to your PC. Select “Yes.” 
  6. Confirm your default language. 
  7. Click “Next” through the VLC Media Player Startup Wizard. Then, click “Install.” 
  8. Click “Finish."
  9. Right-click on the VLC icon in your taskbar, then select "Pin to Taskbar."

To view your ShotKam videos in VLC: 

  1. Open VLC Media Player.
  2. Click “Media” in the top left corner. Then, select "Open File." 
  3. Scroll down to ShotKam.
  4. Select the ShotKam Folder.  
  5. You will see a list of dated folders. Select the dated folders of the shots you would like to view.
  6. Once finished, close VLC.
  7. Open File Explorer, right click on the ShotKam device, then select Eject. It is now safe to unplug.

How do I go frame-by-frame?

To go frame-by-frame in VLC Media Player, use the "e" key on your keyboard. Please note that the frame-by-frame function freezes in VLC's latest update, version 3.0.11. Be sure that you are using VLC version 2.2.8 to view your ShotKam videos. 

What are the keyboard shortcuts?

Spacebar: Pause and play videos. 
E: Go frame-by-frame. 
F: Full-screen mode. 
Esc: Exit full-screen mode. 
S: Close videos.
