Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
When I download pics and or at the same time download movies, my Windows Media Player will play movies at a slower pace than the audio which is normal sounding. Could this be in the camera or is it in my Media Player? Thanks to any and all who can help. Mark
Odds are it is the media player. Most often with digital video, frames will drop but the software will make sure the audio isn't lost. There is a lot mmore data transfer with video than audio. The dropped frames will result in a "jerky" video playback. We humans can compensate for lost frames - in fact a lot of video on the web used to play at maximum 15 frames per second. But we don't like it when the sound is lost. What would it sound like if we only heard half the audio? We would shut it down fast. The computer has to deal with software talking to hardware. The hardware has to re-draw every frame for you on your monitor, but it has to wait for the data to be sent and the software has to deal with that. And this will be more evident the older your computer is. Hope this helps.
