THM trouble
How do I fix these files so they can be played like the video clips do? They came from a Canon Power Shot A560 Camera but won't play on my computer

Software/Hardware used:
HP Pavillion p7-1010 with Windows software

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

THM files are not video files.  They are image files that contain video thumbnails only.

There should be some other files that are the actual videos, which will probably be in avi, mp4 or other popular video format.

    .thm files r not video files, while they r just a thumbnails of recorded video. U can try with windows movie maker to import the videos & this will convert files that compatible with windows media player.
    First take backups all of ur files, then u can either try to open .thm files directly in any image viewer, if it is not opened, simply rename the extension as .jpg and open in any built-in image viewer.

    In other words THM 9thumbnail files) can't be played?  Why are some of my camera videos playable THM's not.  How do I avoid THM files if anyone knows.  Thanks for taking time to help me on this.

    No, THM files are not video files, and thus, they cannot be played.  Just ignore them.

    They are used by the camera UI to display the list of videos you have taken. Outside of the camera they are almost useless.  When you copy/move videos or photos from the camera to your PC, don't include thowse thm files.
