Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Movie playback speed

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.

How to stop buffering


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.

When I go to play a video It will play for a few seconds, stop, than play and it continues to do so.. what do I need to do to fix this problem?


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.

Cannot play DVD, cd video wont play to media player


not sure whether its a problem with the drive or a problem with windows media player. Take a can of air and blow some onto the laser of the dvd drive, this will make sure that there is no dirt or dust on the laser.

Once you do that put the dvd back into the drive. Give it about 20-30 seconds and then see if it tries to pull up the movie if it does and your getting errors from windows media player then we know that the drive is working cause its seeing the movie properly.

At that point, I would suggest downloading the latest version of windows media player.

Go here to download the latest version of Windows Media Player 11.

After doing that and installing it, try playing your movie again, in fact try several movies just to make sure. Windows Media player may want to download Codecs, if it does then let it. This will allow it to recognize dvds better and quicker.

If the codecs are updated and you still can't get it to see and play movies then I would suggest using a different dvd player such as Cyberlink PowerDVD located on this page:

Just purchased an acer aspire one, can get movie from external dvd play playback on media player & power dvd 8 but not sound. sound plays on cds & everything else, plays on movies downloaded online...


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....

While wathing movie by acer 3260 laptop video & audio slow


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.

Video playback windows media


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. http://betaplayer.corecodec.org/download It is free. Download the Latest Stable Player.
