Slow playback

What kind of video is being played? If its HD on an older computer it could have choppiness problems. you can try going to Applications>Utilities>Disk utility. In there, Click your startup drive, and click repair disk permissions. If that does not work, you should reinstall your operating system. I can guide you through that if necessary.

Mac Media Player

Any of the following are good:
QuickTime with Perian
Real Player 10 for Mac OS
Windows Media Player for Mac OS X 9.0If you don't have Mac OS X, get the Windows Media Player for Mac 7.1 which runs on the Macintosh Classic OS.

VLC media player for Mac OS X
Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

Unsupported format for video player divx and quicktime

Try PowerDVD. They support an incredible number of formats and there is a free trial. Also, DVDFAB has a free media player that also supports multiple formats and the download is free. dvdfab.cn- do not be afraid if your browser says there is no cerifificate. I am on that site almost every day.

I have downloaded a series from a usb stick.half the episodes will play and the other half wont

Best solution is to download a VLC player for the Mac OS it will cope well with a wide range of video files and its free I have been using it for twelve year on various mac platform. But beware some business models lock out video files deliberately putting a tollbooth on data this may still be an issue, just find a better source. Otherwise half your files were corrupted during download, and you will need to try again if it was off the internet. ___________________ Link to VLC player

I cannot open an AVI file on quick time, what should I do?

I'm having a similar issue with Quicktime player, you can try changing the video format first if you want too. like to MPEG or mp4, MOV, any one of those may work for you. Just try that first and see what happens and if it doesn't work, do what I'm about to; try and see if another video player will work. Hope this fix's your problem

I have used cardrecovery 3.60 to recover photos

Ive talked it over with my associate, and we can only come up with..

mp4 is not a video format, it may play sound but no video, if you cant change the save type directly to your card, the you should try a diffrent card, i cant think of a way to fix this anyother way, i suggest you just buy a new one, they dont cost to much nowadays

if the videos were in mov format, then try update qt for the mov file, or install the codec needed for that .mov file, apple sucks so i really hope you find a way to avoid useing it lol, hope this was helpfull/solved, rate plz?
