Movie playback speed

When I download pics and or at the same time download movies, my Windows Media Player will play movies at a slower pace than the audio which is normal sounding. Could this be in the camera or is it in my Media Player? Thanks to any and all who can help. Mark

Odds are it is the media player. Most often with digital video, frames will drop but the software will make sure the audio isn't lost. There is a lot mmore data transfer with video than audio. The dropped frames will result in a "jerky" video playback. We humans can compensate for lost frames - in fact a lot of video on the web used to play at maximum 15 frames per second. But we don't like it when the sound is lost. What would it sound like if we only heard half the audio? We would shut it down fast. The computer has to deal with software talking to hardware. The hardware has to re-draw every frame for you on your monitor, but it has to wait for the data to be sent and the software has to deal with that. And this will be more evident the older your computer is. Hope this helps.

I have downlode 2 movies but it is not play sume code problam pls hilp me

If you are trying to use Windows Media Player it's no wonder you can't watch them or you are having codec problems. Open up internet explorer and go to google. In the google search box type in "Download VLC Player". Look at the search results and look for www.videolan.org/vlc to download the player. VLC is free open source and it is a much better player with all the drivers and codec. It runs things that windows media player has a problem playing. Once you download and install it, go to the movie file you downloaded and Right Click on it and select the Open With option. If you don't see VLC listed in the Open With options, choose the option at the bottom that says Choose Program. Look for VLC in the program list. Choose VLC to play the movie and see what happens.

When I go to play a video It will play for a few seconds, stop, than play and it continues to do so.. what do I need to do to fix this problem?

This might be due to a slow internet connection. See, for smooth playback, the part of the movie your computer wants to show has to be downloaded already - it has to be "buffered". If you have a slow internet connection, the speed at which your computer can download a movie might be slower than the actual time it takes to watch what's being downloaded. That's why your movie will stop, wait until another part of it has been buffered, and then recommence.

I can,t the run movies in my 5315 pc, what is the problem?...

You Need a movie playing software to be able to play movie on your system. You have to download and install a movie software to play your movie. Also note the format on which the Movie is made and download the player that can play that format.

Best of Lucks.

Problem in playing .vob files

Hi there,
I can play .vob files with a cool media player called VLC player, which plays everything I throw at it. I recommend you download it from here:

http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

and when you install it, set the File Associations to play everything with VLC, that'll let you double click on a .vob file and play it automatically.
VLC has a much lighter 'footprint' than Windows Media Player, or Nero or many DVD players,and has amazing codec-support already included.
If the .vob files are encrypted, then maybe that is slowing down your laptop, but that is not the only reason for this to happen.
If it still restarts automatically, you may have picked up malware from downloaded movies, and need to download Spybot and scan and immunize your hard drive. Spybot is completely free. Trust me, i don't like paying for things :)
It's also possible that you need to clean up your registry and your drive with a free program called ncleaner. you can find that here:
http://www.nkprods.com/ncleaner/

I suspect you will be successful with VLC player, though. Enjoy your movies :)

Video playback windows media

Import your existing movie into Windows Movie Maker (WMM). If you wish, edit it. When you are ready to publish, WMM has pre-set compression settings for PDA. Once published, copy the file to your PDA memory card using a card reader or RAM using ActiveSync. Note that Windows Media 9 is buggy on VGD machines, and you may see your movie at 1/2 screen resolution you intend. There is no way to fix this. Instead, I recommend Beta Player as an alternative (and more powerful, if uglier) movie player. http://betaplayer.corecodec.org/download It is free. Download the Latest Stable Player.
