Firmware update resolves EOS 6D video issue

Firmware Version 1.1.2 for the EOS 6D fixes a phenomenon which prevents movie files shot using Canon EOS 6D Digital SLR cameras from being played back on YouTube.

You can download firmware version1.1.2 at http://software.canon-europe.com/

However, firmware version 1.1.2 may present some Video Snapshot limitations, as follows:
1. EOS 6D running Firmware Version 1.0.9: If a video snapshot captured when the camera was running firmware 1.0.9 is combined with a video snapshot created by a camera which was running firmware 1.1.2, the resulting video snapshot album will be corrupted.
2. EOS 6D running Firmware Version 1.1.2: If you try to add a video snapshot from a camera running firmware 1.1.2 to the video snapshot album created when the camera was running firmware 1.0.9, a warning message "Cannot select this movie" will appear and the video snapshot cannot be added to the album.

The following workaround addresses the two scenarios described above:
1) Shoot a video snapshot and create a video snapshot album.
2) Import the captured video snapshot album to your computer.
3) Start ImageBrowser EX, an application bundled with the EOS 6D.
4) Select the video snapshot album, and select [Edit Movie] in the [Edit] tab.
5) MovieEdit Task will start.
6) Select [Add Image] and select video snapshot album to add the movie snapshot.
7) Select [Save] and [Save image type] and then click [Save].
