Movies/videos are choppy and unwatchable... Only problem with pc.

Try lowering your screen resolution, and don't download / view videos in HD. Test with lower like 480 and maybe 720. Mine can't even handle 720 by the way.

Whenever i upload a video to my computer it turns out choppy and slow. I downloaded Nikon Transfer and after using it my videos are still choppy. What do I do about this?

I'm a video game programmer with 20 years experience in software, and have a reasonable understanding movie playback software.

I also have a Nikon (S6100) and the problem is nothing to do with PC memory or CPU speed. The Nikon creates a broken version of the MPEG-4 AVC H.264 format, which results in choppy playback. I've tried Quicktime, VLC and the cameras own player - ViewNX2 - same result for all of them.

Converting the buggy .MOV files the Nikon creates to a .avi format produces perfectly smooth (flawless) video, but with the sound out of sync. I can also create perfect quality (lower res) DVD video, but with the sound missing.

I have spoken to Nikon about all this and they are quite simply clueless and will take no responsibility. As there is no firmware up[date for this camera I'm taking the camera back, as it is basically flawed.

I've read a few sites with customers complaining about choppy video for this camera, so it looks like the model itself is flawed.

My minoHD play back is very choppy on the computer

minoHD playback is choppy, period.
This sort of cheap, so called video cameras, have nothing in the way of motion interpolation.
The result is very jerky motion, especially if you pan or tilt the camera.
You would probably be better off using the video capture feature in your stills camera or mobile phone.

E-System laptop with slow dvd playback

This can be a bit of a tricky one to figure out. My initial response would be that you have another program or process that is causing your computer to play 'choppy' video. When you have a newer computer that was recently working just fine and now all of the sudden the video is choppy, it is usually due to another process using CPU cycles that are so important to video playback.

Start playing a DVD, but don't go to full-screen mode. Open the Task Manager. Right-Click on the task bar and select Task Manager. Click on the 'Processes' tab. There is a column labeled CPU, click on the heading 'CPU' twice. This will order the processes in order from highest CPU usage to lowest. The top two processes will most likely be your DVD player and the process that is causing your choppy playback.If the offending process isn't essential (i.e. anti-virus), then click on said process and then click the "End Process" button.

Hope this helps.
