8mm Home Video playback wrong speed

Q: 8mm Home Video playback wrong speed

I have a SONY Handycam that uses MP120 8mm Video Cassettes. I used this Handycam to tape home videos. When I use the playback feature on the Handycam it seems as if it is playing back in a slower speed. When I connect the Handycam to my computer and play back, it does the same thing. It is as if the camera was recording at a wrong speed. Is there any way I can control the speed of the video camera via computer, so that I can get the home videos transferred to DVD?

I ve encountered a very strange problem when playing video files on both my laptop and desktop The video appears to play at normal speed but the position-slider reaches the end of the video before the actual video finishes This results in the video freezing when the slider reaches the end even though there might still be more video left For example a two hour video might stop playing after only a minute or so - when the slider reaches the end Strangely I can click on the middle of the slider and reach the middle of the video But the slider will continue rocketing along at Video Speed Playback an accelerated speed from that position This only occers with some video files but not Video Playback Speed all of them However the ones that are affected have Video Playback Speed the same problem whether the video is being played in WMP Winamp RealPlayer or the Divx Player However PowerDVD appears to be immune to this effect and plays normally Since this problem affects multiple players it must be a video setting on my operating system And since it affects both my PC and laptop it must be something that came with the operating system Windows XP or at least that s what I m thinking Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this nbsp

I have recently purchased a JVC EVERIO GZ-HM200 and have obviuosly been doing some filming.

The video footage is being saved to a Panasonic SDHC card class 4. I have uploaded the footage to my HP Pavillon dv 9700 Notebook (windows vista) with a NVidia Geforce 8400M video card.

The reason for my email is that the playback is extremely jumpy and audio/video is out of sync. I am unable to view any of the footage on the computer and will not be able to edit it or make and home movies.

I have update the driver for the video card as i thought that this may be the issue but it is still extremely jumpy and not playing back properly.

I have no more ideas and require some assistance.
 

A:Playback of Home Video

How's the video/audio quality when you play the vids back on the camera. If they are only jumpy/out of sync on your computer, then it could be an issue of not having the right codecs, or too many codecs installed.

I built a PC in August and it runs very fast and plays games, videos and audio without issue. However, I have been getting occasional BSODs during youtube playback or when playing a video from my hard drive, even if i played the same video moments earlier without issue. I have updated all drivers windows updates, memtest to check ram but nothing seems to explain my PCs sudden desire to BSOD me.

I would be very very grateful if someone would have a look at some min-dumps for me and see if they can identify the issue as i have reached the limit of my computer diagnostic knowledge.
 

A:Intermitent BSOD during internet video playback or avi playback (Win7 Pro 64)

How many Passes did you allow for Memtest? I read your five most recent dumps and the were all of the same error as described below...

Your error is 0x124: WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR and is described as "A fatal hardware error has occurred."

This error code and definition has replaced the older XP code 0x9C: MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION and though it is older the definition still is applicable: This is a hardware issue: an unrecoverable hardware error has occurred. The parameters have different meanings depending on what type of CPU you have but, while diagnostic, rarely lead to a clear solution. Most commonly it results from overheating, from failed hardware (RAM, CPU, hardware bus, power supply, etc.), or from pushing hardware beyond its capabilities (e.g., overclocking a CPU).

Honestly, this is a very difficult error to work with because as it says a clear diagnosis rarely comes forth and I have never seen a minidump with either error codes give a definitive answer. I know IT techs that don't like working with it. What makes it so difficult is that it can be any hardware in your system -- and I mean any. Your dumps simply cited hardware as the issue and nothing more definitive.

Here are some of the causes that were determined to be the source of 0x124/0x9C errors from posters here and abroad: NIC, DVD/CD drives, dust build up around the CPU that caused overheating of said CPU, bulging capacitors hidden by heatsink, corrupted memory, video card, psu, motherboard, and external harddrive connected by USB.

* Anything overclocked? If so set your hardware to factory specs.

Hello. I have some audio issues that are causing distortion whenever I watch videos on youtube or watch streams on twitch. I updated my flash and that didn't change anything. These issues just started within the last 3 days. I tried a system restore from two weeks ago and that didn't work. I double checked my sound drivers and they are up to date. This happens in both Firefox and Google Chrome. I started Firefox in safe mode with all addons disabled and it still happened. The distortion didn't really capture very well on the video even though I can hear it. You can hear it better in the beginning. And this happens on videos that are buffered, even if I wait 5 minutes, this still occurs. I can try a different video once I get back from school(have to leave right now) if you want to hear the distortion better.

Hi

I convert video files to AVI and store on a ext HDD to playback through a USB connection on a home theatre system. After about an hour or so the video will freeze for a second or so then continue, this will continue a few times until the movie finishes.
I have also put a movie on a USB stick and the same thing happens so the only thing common to both is the home theatre.
Could it be that the information that is being supplied is too much or too fast for the theatre system and it can't keep up so it freezes?

Hope someone can help

Thanks
 

A:video playback freezes on usb playback

If it were that the hardware "couldn't keep up", I would expect it to happen more often...like every so many seconds or minutes. It is generally more noticeable and occurs soon after starting playback and is fairly consistent during the entire playback.

You could experiment with file types or encoding options to see if you can isolate the problem. AutoGK has a "standalone player" option.

Maybe it's a buggy audio driver that plays at 48 kHz instead of 44.1.

A couple of weeks ago I left a post here because Windows Media Player was playing the videos stored on my computer with a strange high contrast effect, with the coours being wrong sometimes, and with the colours appearing very saturated and pale at times too.
This was solved by turning off the overlays in the WMP settings.

Now, when I play DVDs I have the same problems (both in WMP and with PowerDVD). In the WMP settings, I've turned off the overlays and done everything in there I can think of, but it still looks the same. DVDs are now virtually unwatchable.. Has anyone got any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks in advance (again)

When I listen to music files on my brand-new PC the speed of playback varies. If you're old enough to remember what a record player is, it's just as if someone put their hand on the turntable to slow it down. The sluggishness lasts for just a few seconds. The files are okay -- they played fine on my old computer. To be sure about that, however, I burned one of the problem songs onto a CD, which I then played back on a CD player; there was no problem at all, so it's clear to me that something is awry inside the black box. Any suggestions would be appreciated, so that when I go back to the vendor I'll sound clever!

Well, it seems u dont have a hardware problem. this problem occurs only when u r watching videos. so i guess its the media player. take my suggestion, stop using it. Download this pack: KLite Codec Pack. I think the latest version is 3.2. Its got all the codecs u need to play compressed videos, and dvds. Its also got an advanced media player which can play any video u open it with like wmv, dat, mpg, rm, mov, avi, divx..... of course, the codecs for these formats r included in the pack.

Two of the three dumps blame your nVidia driver (the other dump is inconclusive), the first think to try would be going to NVidia's site and getting some different drivers and take it from there.

not really
it all depends on what speed the video uploader set as his default
BUT if you have a youtube or google account and they are linked, then log into your yourtube account & select settings. then playback
there are 2 options there that might help.

Always choose the best quality for my connection and player size is default setting or you can chose I have a slow connection. Never play higher-quality video

but for the settings to work, you MUST have a youtube account and be logged into it EVERYTIME you want to,watch a youtube video

I have a question for the gurus here.

I notice with video playback that it gets a little choppy, like a line that forms across the middle of the screen and breaks up the video. It seems to only happen in 'higher intensity' video playback, but I don't know that for sure. I'm fairly certain that I have the most updated drivers from ATI, but will check for sure when I get home. What else could this be? Do I just need more power? The gfx card is a few years old now. Originally I thought it was my monitor, but I have since replaced it and the problem persists.

I listen to audio recordings of conference calls and edit transcriptions of them. When I had Windows XP and and an earlier version of Windows Media Player, I was able to use either a menu command or a keyboard command to increase or slow the speed of playback, and the player responded instantly to these commands. Now I have Vista and its new Windows Media Player 11, and there is a delay of 5-10 seconds between when I use the command and when the recording actually slows down or speeds up. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Alternatively, can anyone suggest another media player that would work better? I've tried Real Player and VLan, neither of which appears to have this control at all, and Goldwave, which has the controls I need in two different windows and doesn't work particularly well.

Gday First of all thanks for providing a forum like this Secondly sorry for anything I don t describe in this post that you d like to know- just ask me and I ll provide any details I ve included a Direct X Diagnostic txt though which I hope will be useful So in brief here s the problem- Video playback simply doesn t work as it should More often than not it won t work at all Though sometimes it playing back uh, Video not, Playback video will Sorry Video Playback not, uh, playing back video for the vagueness but I ll try to give a better summary here I have Windows Media Player installed but I ve had the same problem on all other versions I ve used- I think they may date back as far as version or On Windows Media Player as well as winamp Video files saved on my computer generally do NOT play I m not entirely sure which formats will play on Windows Media Player and likewise for WinAmp but I m fairly sure that the formats that play on both system correlate I wish I could describe this better but video files embedded on websites which are opened with Windows Media Player will SOMETIMES stream perfectly SOMETIMES give audio but no visual whatsoever and do nothing at all DVDs however will play just as they are intended On WINDVD recently uninstalled Almost all file formats of videos would play However it was uninstalled because it was the crappy demo version that came with the computer in which you couldn t use ANY functions beyond pause and play I might download a bit later if I can t get any help getting other programs to run video as they are intended to On Quicktime and Realplayer Video would occasionally work I know that mpeg is one format that would always work on this players and video embedded on websites which are played by Quicktime almost always play One again I m sorry for general vagueness- I m sort of just hoping that the symptoms will sound familiar to anybody- but if anybody can give me an easy method of determining which formats work for which players I ll definately do so and post the results here On Ulead Video Studio Video editing software Video formats recognised by the player will always work regardless of whether they work on players Videos burned to DVDs or VCDs will play perfectly on DVD players Now I m not entirely sure about this but I believe that the problems began around the same time I installed Ulead And now for some speculation of my own- Is it possible that any of this could have anything to do with my graphics card I ve run the Direct X Diagnosis tool and checked the full graphic rendering section and the results are fine however there are a few possibly irrelevant factors which MAY have some bearing on this problem The Sims I experiance some odd flickering on neighbourhood screens I checked out the EA help files and this can apparantly be caused by outdated video card drivers and similar sorts of graphics card related problems What s more I think though I m not sure seeing as this all began well over a year ago that this began happening at around the same time I started experiancing video playback problems Photoshop For some reason entirely unknown to me Photoshop views certain colours rather differently to ANY other programs on my computer including Paint Windows picture fax viewer Internet Explorer and Firefox Actually I m fairly sure it s entirely unrelated but it s still a rather interesting oddity dontchathink And a final piece of trivia that may prove helpful- utube videos will always ALWAYS play perfectly on my system So Any advice on how to go about trying to fix any of this It d be more appreciated than you could ever imagine Eternally in your debt A Befuddled Llama nbsp

What are you using to play the file?
 
Maybe if you tried something like VLC Player the problem would go away.

I've been having some severe video problems lately. I have reinstalled a fresh version of DirectX, though dxdiag still reports that I am missing a file d3dim700.dll.

Videos will load as usually, and play normally for a few seconds, until the video starts lagging behind, and the audio continues as normal. This happens with all media players. I have also tried tweaking the acceleration, to no effect.

I am running Windows XP Home, 2.8ghz celeron, 1g RAM, Intel xtreme graphics 2.

A:Video playback trouble - Video slows down

Hi Prospect151

Try downloading & installing a fresh version of the Intel graphics drivers as well. Here's a link to the 9/28/2005 version 14.17 driver for the Extreme Graphics 2 of the the 865G integrated graphics for Windows XP --- http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scri...lName=Windows* XP Home Edition&lang=eng --- another alternative would be to try Windows Update.

Should you have any other system files missing, scan for malware - to make sure that unwanted visitors aren't altering system files. You can also try a run of Windows File Protection (aka System File Checker) - from the Start/Run box, type

sfc /scannow

... the program might prompt for either your Windows installation CD, or the spot on your hard drive where your .cab files are. It will only do so if it finds a file-version problem, or a file missing. The program will leave entries in the Event Viewer for when it starts, when it stops, and what files it replaced (if any). The Event Viewer is in the Administrative Tools in your Control Panel.

Best of luck

Hi all,
I want to connect my VCR to the computer to transfer old home movies to DVD.
The Analog to DV device requires a 1 GHz processor. Mine is 498 MHz.

Regarding the speed, will the device work only slowly or not at all?

Thanks!
 

A:Solved: Video capture device speed vs. processor speed

It is not a matter of slow or not at all. It is most likely a matter of dropped frames. If you have a cheaper video capture card [one without hardware decoding] it will probably work however you will not like the result.

Video editing / encoding is cpu intensive. I would hate to think how long it would take to encode the video file after you capture it [with that cpu]

To give you some idea, it takes me about 15 min to encode approx 1hr of video with an intel dual core cpu. With yours it will be hours.

Hello all, Im having a bit of troble with video playback, any video i watch either short cartoon or full movies are freezing and unfreezing like a studder, throughout the video. These are short pauses, but still annoying.
It doesnt seem to matter with program I use to view, nero showtime, media player old and new, vlc, etc. they all do the same thing so i am assuming its the comp. Maybe drivers, althougth there up to date. these videos are all on my hard discs, and some on my main and some on storage hard drives. Any ideas?

A:Wrong AGP speed?

Some things you might try.
1 Do you have fast writes enabled in the bios? If so, try disabling them. If they are disabled, try enabling them.

2 Chipset drivers should be installed before the video driver. I would uninstall your video driver with the ati uninstall app. Now reinstall your chipset driver and then install the CAT driver and control panel. Are you using the new cat control center by chance? If so, that is somewhat buggy. I like the driver with the older version of control panel; it is still available from ati.

It would seem the FSB has been reset to 100MHz & simply need to be set back to 166MHz. In order to do so, it's better to look for the manual that came with your motherboard or if you've lost it, download it in PDF format off the manufacturer's website.

The other night I downloaded a new version of itunes because it recommended so, and it also installed quicktime as I guess I had deleted it since the last update (I hate quicktime). Anyways, ever since then my video play back is VERY dark to the point where you almost can't see anything. Quicktime plays the files without a hitch, but WMP + VLC are darkened. I deleted quicktime, which didn't fix anything. I then proceeded to update my BIOS as I figured what can it hurt. Didn't help. I also deleted and reinstalled my codec pack for WMP, which again didn't help.

What could this possibly be? Thanks in advance!

I recently upgraded WMP on my laptop from version 10 to 11. When I play video (doesn't matter the source...DVD, saved clips, on-line video), the video is "zoomed in" in the playback window. It appears as if WMP 11 is playing back in full-screen mode, but not "downsizing" the video image when not actually in full-screen mode. For example, when I play an episode of LOST on-line, the video is zoomed in on an actor's nose, regardless of the size of the playback window. Good quality, but not the intended result.

I can resolve this by rolling back to WMP 10 or sooner, but I'd like to keep using WMP 11. The laptop is a Sony VGN-S580P running XP Pro SP-2. Please help!

A:Wrong Processor Speed

Well we need some more details here.

AM USING MERCURY MOTHERBORD OF WHICH ITS SPECIFICATIONS ARE THAT IT IS 2000+ PRO PROCESSOR.
What model is the motherboard, and what do you mean specifications are that it is a 2000+ pro processor. Is it campatiable with that model processor or does it actually contain it? Check some of your BIOS settings.

WHAT CAN I DO SO AS TO BE ABLE TO SEES THE FULL 2000MHZ <2.0GHZ>.

When it comes to these style AMD's their naming structure is not relavent to it's speed, sure it says 2000Mhz but really its only 1667Mhz max.

Relevancy 49.45%

I just finished building my new christmas pc . It runs great, but the only problem is that my memory is supposed to be DDR3 1600, but when I boot my pc on the black screen ( BIOS post? Something like that ) it says something like DRAM 800. My Motherboard supports up to DDR3 1333.

So my question is, how do I overclock this memory to 1333?
On the stickers on the side of the sticks it says 9-9-9 @ 1.65v, which is the latency I think.

This is my memory.

A:Wrong Memory speed

Download and run CPU-Z and go to the "memory" tab. (this is a handy app to have anyway)

Make sure the memory is in "dual channel" mode and if it's 800Mhz dual channel, you have 1600Mhz RAM.

You can also go into the BIOS...if you built the computer, you will know how to get into the BIOS. There will be memory configuration options there. Make sure you are at the right speed and voltage.

However, your POST screen "should" be showing 1600Mhz. Most POST screens I have seen tell you the actual speed. You could try using the "pause-break" key to stop the POST so you can have a look at it. Use the "print-scrn" button to continue with the POST.

Hello all, I'm hoping you can help me out.
My setup is:
AMD 1.1 proc
256 DDR Kingston Memory
Asus A7M Motherboard

My problem is that I did a reformat last week, and now my computer reads the processor as an 850 instead of 1.1
Anyone know of a way to correct this? Hopefully without reformatting again.
Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:Processor speed wrong

You need to change the multiplier/frequency settings in the BIOS for the processor.

Go up one step at a time, until you get to where you need to be.

If all of a sudden your computer wont boot, reset the CMOS.

**NOTE EDIT**
Reformatting should have nothing to do with it, the only thing that changes is the hard drive. What's wrong is in your BIOS. However, I'm not too familiar with that low speed processor but I'm more than certain it is a BIOS problem.

Hi all!



so a lot of my videos have weird colours like that, but only recently. a lot of them used to play with normal colours. what's wrong?

A:Odd colours in video playback

Possible codec corruption. Looks pretty weird.

I'd suggest downloading a codec pack, and overwiting the current ones. Better yet find out what codec it uses (should be in 'properties' of the file) and reload only that codec.

I use the 'Nimo' codec pack. Search for it on Google.

You are most likely correct - installing a codec pack will probably solve your problem - K-Lite codec pack (link in my signature area) is a good one.

Whenever I play a video on my XP system (in any player) it plays back pixelated and way too bright. This problem extends into video games where the in game movies play the same way. I recently had the K-Lite codec pack on my system but removed it because it was a headache. I'm thinking this might be part of the problem. Aside from that the problem might be the driver for my Nvidia GeForce 5500, it could be doing some kind of obnoxious video acceleration or some crap.

I'm stumped here.
PS. I would have posted a screen shot of the problem but apparently XP wont let you save video frames.

Just a suggestion for trouble shooting try videolan it comes with its own codecs.This may eliminate codecs as the issue, and point to a driver issue...I've used the kl pack for over 2 years with no issues....

In trying to watch some anime, I've come across resolution woes. My video program of choice is Zoom Player, which does install on my 64-bit Ultimate system. That said, it and other non-WMP programs that I try to use to watch videos render pixelated images (my fallback form ZP is VLC Player, and it too has the problem). So I was fine watching .avi files on WMP until I was unable to get WMP to render .mkv files, despite the fact that I installed the .mkv codec pack. Does anyone know of a good video program without rendering issues, or a fixed version of Zoom Player? I'd appreciate the info.

A:Video playback troubles

Yes use the Vista Codec Pack, remove any other codec programs as these packs contain every codec you will need, They also have two versions and you will need both for Vista X64.
Included in these packs is a player called Media Player Classic which is capable of playing .mkv files.
To adjust the hight and width of movies in MPClassic use your keypad keys 2,4,6 and 8.

Hi all,

I bought an HD5670 a few weeks back. And just noticed something odd when I watch TV through Media Centre or play DVDs.

The image has a kind of pastel look, almost solarised (I think that's the effect), with large areas of colour being the same and very little definition/subtlety.

I previously had an nvidia 8500GT, and everything was fine, video-wise with that. The 5670 seems fine with graphics in games, and on windows in general but while watching videos it just seems odd.

I uninstalled the reinstalled the k lite codec pack that I've always had on my PC, but that seems to have made no difference.

Any suggestions??

Thanks!

ps I have the same 22" samsung 1050 monitor connected via DVI. It says screen is 32bpp and 1680 x 1050, which I sure is the same as I had it before!

On one of my older computers running windows xp i am having a annoying problem problem video playback Most of the time when i try to play a video on it it will have video playback problem a little windows installer window pop up i had the ace mega codec pack installed on it but it was really bad and kept me from video playback problem even playing video so i uninstalled it it has been a while since i used video playback problem that pc but now i have it plugged up to a tv and a speaker system in my room and am not in for reinstalling windows everything else runs fine very fast and smooth how do i stop those windows installer screens from poping up those installers sem to try to install things from the ace mega codec pack but it never does as it was uninstalled the video still plays find the installer will just come up while it is playing heres a screenshot of what i m talking about before it would try to install it and then take me through a whole bunch of menues that would not go away until i click on next and waited for it to isntall then find nothing and give a error so i had to use regedit to stop that and just close the ace codec install as soon at it came up so there only up for a short time then go away if they come up while viewing videos like those at ebaums world the browser will hang http img imageshack us img untitled vw jpg in the screenshot i am running sherlock that is a file that doesnt need to be installed and all it does is scans for codecs open them to test if there working properly then display results during the scan that windows installer window will appear and close to times befoe the scan completes this mostly happens when viewing files in WMV and happens every time i play a video in this format http img imageshack us img untitled dg jpg nbsp

I opened up iTunes to play a song and it wont play and when I tried to open iTunes before that a window popped up saying "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration, Audio/Video playback may not operate properlyI don't know what to do or where to startMOD EDIT: Moved from Windows NT/2000/2003 forum to more appropriate forums ~ stevealmighty
