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

Re: Movie playback speed
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.

If you are talking about the internet and a web movie that says that it is buffering, the major issue is your internet speed. Video streams to your computer and your player attempts to play it. When the feed is slower than the movie player, the play pauses to let the internet catch up and you get that error.
This might be due to a slow internet connection. See, for smooth playback, the part of the movie your computer wants to show has to be downloaded already - it has to be "buffered". If you have a slow internet connection, the speed at which your computer can download a movie might be slower than the actual time it takes to watch what's being downloaded. That's why your movie will stop, wait until another part of it has been buffered, and then recommence.
AVS DVD Player is a free universal player that I put on all Acer Ones that I sell. It is an excellent player, that can go full screen and handle every format. It will even play VOB files which are dvd files "ripped" from dvd discs. I have never had a failure with this program....
well the operating system of nokia n 70 is symbian not windows so windows media player doesnot work on it and u never add a software u always install it.. here is what u have to do 1.Download a software name "Smart Movie" 2.Now use a video convertor like "any video convertor" for converting the movie to avi format of the resolution of ur phones screen. 3.Now install smart movie 4.Add movie to ur phone(converted one) 5.Rescan file system in smart movie.
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. -------------------------

Import your existing movie into Windows Movie Maker (WMM). If you wish, edit it.
When you are ready to publish, WMM has pre-set compression settings for PDA.
Once published, copy the file to your PDA memory card using a card reader or RAM using ActiveSync.
Note that Windows Media 9 is buggy on VGD machines, and you may see your movie at 1/2 screen resolution you intend. There is no way to fix this. Instead, I recommend Beta Player as an alternative (and more powerful, if uglier) movie player.
It is free. Download the Latest Stable Player.
