Flip Video Ultra HD MP-4 files playing VERY choppy on my PC

Just purchased an Ultra HD which records high-def 780P video in MP-4 format. The video looks smooth when playing on the device itself, or my friend's Mac Book Pro. However, it is very choopy/stuttery when playing on my PC. The issue is not my laptop's hardware (Windows Visat Home Premium, Intel Core Duo T7250 processor with Nvidia 8400M GS 256 MB video card and 2GB system RAM). I have tried Flipshare's software, Windows Media Player 11 (updated) and VRC (updated). Flip's customer service/engineers are aware of this issue occuring for some customers but do not as of yet have a solution. Is this a MP-4 software issue or a bad Ultra HD design? (it is not the "jerkiness" the camcorder shows if you don't hold it very still when recording).

Daniel is a little mistaken with his solution. The resolution of the video is much higher than the little video screen. Stuttering play back has nothing to do with resolution but FPS or Frames Per Second.

Since the video on the little screen is smooth the video should be smooth on your computer as well, just blurry if the resolution is low. However, I am having the same problem with mine and the picture is sharp on my 1080p laptop screen but only appears to stutter instead of playing smoothly.

The camera has dedicated hardware playing it back. This is also the same hardware that is encoding it while recording. My guess would be that the hardware encoding is using a faulty codec that is not playing back well.

The reason is that the max video resolution for the player is 320px by 240px, on the player it will look good but on a standard 1024x768 screen, the video will be stretched and will loose a lot of quality, there's no fix, the video is just meant to look good on the player

Oh, this is easy. It's your laptops video card processing the video format slowly. Try converting to something like WMV. This happens a lot with uncompressed video files. This problem is worse on laptops than desktops.

How come I can't play a video with AVCHD format on my laptop? My laptop is an HP Pavillion DV7


Each of the AVCHD camcorders ships with software designed to playback the files on your computer. Sony's HDR-SR1 and the newer HDR-SR5 both record video in the AVCHD format and ship with the Picture Motion Browser, which plays back AVCHD files on most computers. If you purchased one of the Panasonic AVCHD camcorders, the included HD Writer should allow you to playback video recorded with your camcorder.
  

While the bundled applications work, my personal preference, is Cyberlink PowerDVD Ultra, which supports playback of the AVCHD files and a whole host of other high definition formats. In addition to playing back your HD camcorder files, PowerDVD Ultra plays back Blu-ray and HD-DVD disks (with the accompanying drives connected, of course). PowerDVD Ultra also makes it possible to expand your HD video editing options, by using the included codecs to render the AVCHD video in apps like VirtualDub.

Cyberlink PowerDVD ultra can be downloaded from here :

If you need to edit flip video in Windows Movie Maker, set the output profile as Raw AVI, MPEG-1, or WMV format, and then import the converted files into WMM. Like to enjoy the captured flip videos on your iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, Zune, BlackBerry, Gphone or other MP3/MP4 players? Just set the corresponding device profile.

HF10 camcorder cannot read some .mts files


My knowledge in video editing is limited, but here's what I could dig up.

m2ts is also referred to as AVCHD, (MPEG4) a high-def Interlaced format which most computers cant render properly since most computers render in progressive format. You have to convert it to MPEG2, AVI, WMV, MOV or other movie file types in Progressive mode, a process known as "Deinterlacing" in order to edit it. Depending on how big the file is and how fast your computer is this could take several hours. Also, you cant view AVCHD files on normal televisions, you need a high-def TV.

If you want to edit high-def videos with post-effects and music etc, for dvd or blue-ray, you'll need a more powerful computer. The "recommended" minimum is a 64bit dual core processor, windows vista 64 bit, a seperate 500Gb or bigger hard drive and at minimum, 3-4Gbs of RAM with a high-def TV monitor. (1080i) Rendering High-Def videos is process heavy and can take up to 12+ hours to render a single 30-60 minute video with post-fx like music, logo's etc. The reason you need a 64bit processor and 64bit windows is because regular XP and Vista wont recognize more than 3Gb of RAM.

You could get by with a 32bit dual core processor and 2 gigs of RAM on windows XP, it's just going to be slower. You will still probably need a high def monitor if your going to edit in high-def mode.

High-def is new technology to mainstream consumers. Supporting technology hasnt caught up yet including most software--however most of what I read stated that Sony Vegas Platinum can do this pretty well.

Your camera is capeable of recording in progressive mode. You'll have to read the manual on how to do this. This will record it in standard mode which is not high-def. (For future reference)

To sum it all up, the camera's technology is more advanced than most PCs. I downloaded AVS Video Converter and converted the AVCHD, (MPEG4) a high-def Interlaced format to HD Video 720p: WMV9, 7000 kbps....... on the drop down screen of the AVS program. I now can view my videos in Progressive Standard mode with NO choppy play back or problems. Please note that 720p is a non digital standard Television view.

Remember M2ts files need to be converted to Progressive non HD files so your computer can read them. That will stop the choppy skips.

Hope this helps.
