    Hi all, I've just a acquired Bushnell Trophy Cam. I have set it up a couple of times in the garden, but have subsequently discovered I end up with a memory card full of 30 second video clips (perhaps 200 files). I have also discovered that I have had to use a third party app called 'Handbrake' to convert each 30 sec file from AVI to a format I can see, which frankly is nuts and soooo time consuming. All I want to do is set up the camera to fire each time an animal walks in front of it, not to just keep take video every 5 mins over a 24 hr period. I have looked at for youtube clips but can find nothing. I have been through the instruction manual and can find no advice as to how to set up the camera to do this. My understanding is that these cameras are designed to do this, but how?
    Any advice would be appreciated otherwise the camera goes....

    This might also be no help at all but with the right codecs you should be able to play AVI without having to transcode it with handbrake... what sort of device do you use for playback? I remember I had a DVD player +- 10 years ago that could play AVI so it's not really a strange file type either... of course it also matters what codec is used within the AVI container. Most common is still DivX I think.
