What kind of video is being played? If its HD on an older computer it could have choppiness problems. you can try going to Applications>Utilities>Disk utility. In there, Click your startup drive, and click repair disk permissions. If that does not work, you should reinstall your operating system. I can guide you through that if necessary.

A slowdown occurs on PowerPC Macs when watching movies in Windows formats (mostly WMV or AVI). A recent upgrade to Flip4Mac (the tool that allows Quicktime Player to play Windows-format videos) is the culprit, as it substituted very inefficient Silverlight code on PPCs for the efficient code in earlier versions.
The solution is to downrev Flip4Mac. Use the uninstaller tool in Applications/Flip4Mac. Then download version 2.2.1.11 of Flip4Mac from:
http://www.telestream.net/download-files/flip4mac-wmv/Flip4Mac-WMV-2.2.1.11.dmg
and run the installer. This will replace the efficient code and greatly smooth your movie viewing. If Flip4Mac urges you to upgrade back to the newer version, ignore it.

When previewing my video in adobe encore, it looks fine but when i burn to dvd, the video jumps everytime the camera moves. What can i do?


This is everything from adobe encores website.

Playback issues in Adobe Encore DVD 2.0 have a variety of symptoms. The following symptoms may occur when you use the preview feature, when you play video in the Monitor panel, when you play to an external device, or when you edit a menu or slide:
-- Video or audio exhibits stuttered playback.
-- Video or audio cut in and out.
-- Audio is out of sync with video.
-- Video displays as black in the monitor panel or after burned to disc.
-- There are general redraw problems in the user interface.
-- Encore DVD returns the error message, "Invalid requested time," when you transcode a file.
Beginning troubleshooting
1. Test the DVD on a variety of players.
Not all DVD players behave the same way. By testing the DVD on a variety of players, both set-top and software, you can determine if the problem is related to the DVD itself or just the player.
2. Make sure that the system meets the requirements for digital video.
Video may not play correctly if your system doesn't meet the following requirements:
-- Intel Pentium 4, 1.4 GHz processor or faster
-- Windows XP Professional or Home Edition with Service Pack 2
-- 512 MB RAM (1 GB or more recommended)
-- Hard disk with at least 16 GB of space for installation and ongoing work (RAID recommended for HDV/HD editing)
-- 1280 x 1024 or greater color monitor resolution, 32-bit display adapter
-- QuickTime 6.5 required to support import and export of QuickTime files
-- Supported DVD burner *
-- Stereo sound card
* For a list of supported DVD burners, visit the Adobe website at www.adobe.com/products/encore/systemreqs.html.
3. Update video display card drivers.
Outdated or flawed video display card drivers may incorrectly display motion video and textures, or incorrectly report their ability to display motion video or textures to Adobe Encore DVD. Contact the video display card manufacturer for the latest display drivers and driver information.
4. Select an appropriate Playback Quality setting.
You can display playback in the Encore DVD Monitor panel at either High quality, Draft quality, or Automatic quality. By default, the Monitor panel displays video at High quality; that is, it displays all the pixels of each frame of video. When Encore DVD plays back unrendered video at High quality, the video may stutter or ****. When you select Draft quality, Encore DVD always displays video at one-half resolution in the Monitor panel. When Draft quality is selected, playback is smooth but the image quality is affected. When you select Automatic quality for the Monitor panel, Encore DVD dynamically adjusts image resolution between High quality and Draft quality to best address the available system resources.
To choose the Monitor panel playback quality, select File > Preferences > General, and then select an appropriate Playback Quality setting.
5. Deselect the Automatic option in Audio/Video preferences.
1. Choose File > Preferences > Audio/Video Out.
2. Under Video Playback, deselect Automatic.
3. In order for the change in preference to take effect, you must close the Monitor panel and then reopen it.
The Automatic option is selected by default, allowing Encore DVD 2.0 to play video in a Standard Direct3D mode. When it is not selected, video plays in GDI mode.
6. Troubleshoot slideshow playback issues.
Many DVD players, both set-top and software, handle playback of slideshows differently. To conserve disc space, Encore DVD creates an MPEG I frame for each slide then assigns a duration for that frame based on the slide's duration. Many players cannot accurately display these and will instead display only a single frame of the image before reverting to a black screen for the duration of the slide.
If you are experiencing playback issues with your slideshow, be sure to play it back using a variety of players. If you determined that slideshow playback is the issue, then you can try the following workarounds to ensure the slideshow will playback correctly on all players:
Note: The following workarounds will increase the amount of space used on the DVD.
Add zooms or pans to each slide.
When you add a zoom or pan effect to a slide, Encore DVD will render the slide as a video file instead of an MPEG I frame with duration.
Create the slideshow in Premiere Pro.
You can import all of your slides into Premiere Pro and create a slideshow there, then export the file as an AVI, import it into your Encore DVD project, and add it to a timeline.
If you create the slideshow in Premiere Pro, users cannot manually advance through the slideshow the same way they can if it was created with the Encore DVD slideshow editor. However, if you add chapter points for each image, then viewers can skip ahead before the timeline automatically reaches the next image.
Create menus from each slide and link them.
By creating menus from each slide and linking them in the desired sequence, users will have complete control over when they can advance to the next image. You can set up invisible buttons with invisible highlights to give the impression that only the image is on screen, or you can include visible navigation elements for the next and previous slide, as well as any option that is available for a traditional menu.
If you create menus for each slide and link them, then you cannot have a continuous soundtrack playing throughout the slideshow. Menus can have audio but they are specific to each menu and will start from the beginning each time you access a new menu.
Intermediate troubleshooting
7. Optimize hard disks.
Optimize hard disks by defragmenting them, updating their drivers, and configuring the disk drives. These procedures improve playback speed and performance in Encore DVD. For further assistance with these tasks, contact the hardware manufacturer or an authorized repair service facility.
-- Defragment hard disks by running the Disk Defragmenter utility included with Windows or a third-party disk utility such as Symantec Norton Utilities. If you use external (non-system) disks for video, you can reformat them instead. Be aware that formatting erases all information on the disk. For instructions, see Windows Help or the documentation for the utility.
-- Update disk drivers to ensure that they aren't damaged or incompatible with the system. If a disk was formatted with a third-party disk utility, you must use the third-party disk utility for this procedure. For instructions, see the documentation that came with the utility.
8. Test digital video playback in a third-party digital video utility.
Play your video clips in an application other than Encore DVD to try to isolate the problem. If playback is problematic in an application other than Encore DVD, the problem is not with Encore DVD; troubleshoot your system or that video file.
9. Optimize Encore DVD.
For information about optimizing Encore DVD, see the Encore DVD User Guide, Online Help, and document, "Optimize performance of Encore DVD (on Windows XP)."

Recording do not sync up


1rst- Maybe you choose the incorrect metronome. On analog audio record use your default audio card metronome and on MIDI audio record, use MIDI metronome!
2nd- Check your memory video card & remember your computer speed is as fast as the lowest speed component on it.
Pardon my poor English!!!!

Good luck!!!

Hello sanjeev_vada,

This procedure is from the windows media player help file.I hope it's useful:
-------------------------
*To play content at variable speeds*

You can change the speed at which content plays in the Player. For example, you can slow down the playback speed if you are taking notes while watching a training video, or you can speed up the slow sections of a presentation.

•Begin playing a file.

•Click the arrow below the Now Playing tab, point to Enhancements, and then click Play Speed Settings.

•Move the Play Speed slider to the speed at which you want to play the content, or click the Slow, Normal, or Fast link.

•To select speeds between the labeled play speeds, in the Enhancements pane, clear the Snap slider to common speeds check box.

•To hide the settings, click the Close button in the Enhancements pane.

Cubase REcording/Playback Problems


check first the sample rate maybe its to high like instead of 44k. its in 48 96 or something like that so the buffering isnt catching with the recoding . alogn with your lattency configuration must devices are ok in 512 latency.
and also be shure not to be recording directly to tyour external hard drive
in case of plugin overload issue it would not stop recording suddenly it would slow down first with some crackles and then stop or must shure freeze.
so impretty shure its somethin else.
hope it works

good luck

Audio out of sync


You may want to put the audio into the microphone-in of your laptop and make menu selections for audio via that line-in port when recording. I found as well that the audio sync was out of whack when trying to have it go with the video through the EasyCap..
