Click “Download”.

In the window that opens, you can select the files you want to download – or all of them by checking the top box. 

Then click “Start”.

The downloaded files can be found in the directory selected in “Save in directory”.

All downloaded files are in .mp4 format and can be played with common players. 

8.1. Read and convert files on SD card in PC

If you do not want or cannot download the files from the SD card in the camera, there is also the option to insert the SD card into the PC and save the files on the PC.

Since the files are in .avx format and cannot be played with standard players, it makes sense to convert them to .mp4.

To do this, you can use this tool: 

https://hikam.de/dl/mp4Tool.zip

Unzip the files and start mp4Tool.exe with a double click.

Under 1, select the directory where the .avx files are currently located.

Under two, choose the directory where you want the converted .mp4 files to go.

Click Transform
