    Recorded video plays back fast on the camera and when downloaded to the computer.

    This didn't happen initially, started happening and now doesn't happen.

    Older videos that did it still do it however and it would be nice to fix them.

This is a really simple problem and easy to solve.  Unfortunately the videos you've recorded cannot be changed back because they have been recorded in Time Lapse mode.  
With the camera switched on in Video Mode turn the control dial on the back (this is the dial to the right of the LCD screen).  This will change the settings from TIME LAPSE to STANDARD.  There are actually 6 different modes but the best one for normal videos is STANDARD.  There is a HIGH RESOLUTION setting,  however these record fewer frames per second (fps) so whilst the quality is better per frame,  there are half the amount of fps so the the movie will look at bit jerky.
It's really easy to accidentally twist the dial when holding the camera,  so always check the icon in the top right of the LCD before recording to make sure its just a yellow camera in a yellow square.  
This should be problem solved for all future recording.

While in video mode, turn the wheel on the right of the screen and you will see that you accidentaly had the camera's video setting on time laps instead of standard.

My g9 was playing video clips very fast. i changed the setting back to "standard" and can record/play new videos correctly; however, the video clip that i previously recorded before i changed the setting...


I believe the setting you changed set the RECORD method, not playback. The video is recorded that way. There are some Video software out there that can rerecord a video at a slower pace, but do you want to spend the money? Try Ulead.com for a low cost program.

Movie plays too fast


if you can upload your movie to utube and then post a link, it can be easier to diagnose.

Digital cameras were designed for still motion, not full motion,. its a feature they put on and doesn't perform very well. If you want higher video, i recommend using a video camera.

Video records at high speed


You need to change your video settings. You have it set for time lapse. Turn your camera to the video mode on the top of the camera and then turn the dial on the back of the camera to the size of video you desire.

Video Playback in fast mode (canon ixus 80)


Oh my, sounds like you accidentally recorded in "Time Lapse" mode (one of the specialized video features of your camera). Unfortunately, there's no way to convert the already taken video back to "Standard" video with sound, I'm sorry. However, you'll obviously need to set your camera back to standard mode for future videos. Press the "Function" button while in video mode. Then press left/right to select "Standard" video.

Every time I try to play back a video, it goes super fast and I don't know how to slow it down!


Are you sure you have not recorded the video in time-lapse mode? Could be worth checking. Once in the Video setting, you can use the thumb ring to change video mode - one of these modes is normal and one is time lapse (there are five or six others).

Video too fast during playback on my Camera


I have a Powershot SD1000 and it should be similar.
When the video plays very fast it was probably filmed in Timelapse mode( which fast- forwards the video) When you are in video mode press the SET Button and set the camera to Standard mode

Make sure that you're not on timelapse, it should be standard to do a regular playback.

I have a canon SD 580. When I playback the video clip it's always in fast forward mode and I can't play it normal speed. Any help?


Make sure you are shooting your movies in "Standard" mode. If you have the mode set to something else, especially "Time Lapse", the playback may not match 'natural' motion.

In any case, you can control the speed of the playback. When you first enter the movie playback mode, there should be a movie control bar along the bottom of the LCD. Instead of the "Play" button, select the "Slow Motion Playback" button (single arrow with single bar next to the normal Play button), and control the speed with the left or right arrows on the multi-controller.
