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

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.

VX2100 record settings for slow motion playback when editing

you can't ! you have to slow you footage afterwards.
Anyway, try to record with a slow speed shutter (1/30th of a second or less) to fluidify your images but if you want to slow down your footage, it's probably because the scene is "fast" and this doesn't could help you anyway !!!

Rolling of picture

You camera is PAL and you are attaching with Ntsc TV or VCR. Both Pal and Ntsc are different systems and incompatible to each other.
If you want to see correct playback of your Camera, it requires Pal or Multi-System color TV.
Need further info, please let me know.

Almost any new digital camcorder will work great, but you want to make sure it has a high speed shutter setting.  Set the shutter speed as high as possible (which means you'll need a lot of light... day light is perfect).  You're still only shooting 30 frames per second, but each shot will be sharper (less motion blur) as the shutter speed increase.  High-end cameras can go up to as much as 1/10000th of a second, but even 1/500 would be great.  Standard, default shutter speed is 1/60th.
For playback, you can use the same camera with a remote control.  Just press play, then just before the swing press pause.  Then use the frame advance button to move 1 frame at a time.  Multiple presses of the frame button will increase the speed... to slow motion.  

Good luck!

Blurry still pictures

I had the same problem and found this forum.  In Camera mode, I went to the night/program light button and somehow entered a circular menu shown on the screen ... chose sports shots - and boom!  back on to focused pictures.  Hallelujah.

Wont playback videos taken

Some common faults with most camcorders and video playback units:
Dirty heads
Failure in the head assembly
Failure in the head pre-amp section
Failure in the main video processing section
Internal system timing fault
Servo lock fault condition
uPC is hung in its operation and requires a re-set

The unit should be properly checked at a service center to determine the exact cause of failure.
