Using my ultra flip camera: when I playback my videos on my computer the images are choppy, jumpy or in slow motion while the audio is fine. what can i do?


Two possible Solutions

1) Have you transferred the videos off your flip, and on to your computers hard drive?

USB ports have greatly increased in speed in the last few years but they can still have trouble playing "live" video directly from the camera.

Solution: Plug in your flip. Drag the files to your "desktop" or "my documents" or any other place you like to store them. Play the files from there.

2)Does the video playback ok on your flip? Or on a different computer?

If so the solution is simple, but expensive. Your computer does not have enough processing power/ memory to play back the video. Full uncompressed video is a very large file and most computers older than 2 years have trouble rendering the video frames fast enough. The HD we see on sites like youtube and even on Blu-ray have been compressed. When the files come off the camera they are not compressed and require alot of computing power.

Solution: Buy a new computer. Sorry I know it is an expensive fix. The good news you don't need anything too fancy. A laptop with a 2+ Ghz (gigahertz) processor and 3+ GB of memory, will do the trick and cost between $300-$500.


Hope that helped

Sounds as if your computer does not have the speed required for streaming the playback fast enough. you could add another gig of ram and look at your processor speed, that may need increasing. Try on a friends machine who may have a more powerful RAM and PCU. If it works on that you need to upgrade in both areas

Jumpy Video


I had the same problem while watching back thru Quicktime. Other post I have read people are having this issue on macs. Seems this is an Apple issue and not a Flip issue. When I play back thru windows Media Player everything is fine.
