Question about Simmons 119236C WHITETAIL TRAIL CAMERA WITH NIGHT VISION 6.0

1 Answer

My video is very jerky. It seems to be cutting in and out constantly.

I just received this camera, and have it mounted to a redwood tree, taking video of my deck. So far I have videos of cats, but they are so jerky they are barely watchable.

Your camera is likely taking still pictures, a few per second. For smooth movie-like motion, you need at least 24 frames per second. Your camera may be adjustable.

    It is set in movie mode. There doesn't seem to be any other setting for movie mode.

Can you explain what 10 second video clips at 30 frames per second mean?


It means that the video will last 10 seconds. 30 frames/sec is the quality of the video. It is the number of individual pictures take per second. Example: 10 frames/sec produces a jerky video but is sometimes used for security monitoring. On some cameras you can reduce the frames/sec to get a longer running time.

Video playback problems on pc


Jerky play back on a PC is determined by a few things. Video card memory, RAM, CPU processor speed, and *codec*. VLC has it's own codec so does not rely on the ones supplied by Windows. If even VLC is playing it back choppy, try lowering the video resolution. It may be too high for the video card to handle.

Perhaps you don't have enough RAM to run the file at it's full resolution. Reduce background tasks or close them using the task manager. Upgrade your video card, add more RAM. If you can't add RAM or a video card - either reduce the resolution setting on the camera for next time, or use the HDMI port on the camera to directly playback video to a HDMI device.

*codec* - "A codec is a device or computer program capable of encoding or decoding a digitaldata stream or signal" - Wiki

Acer has jerky video


The video is jerky because the rate at which the video stream is being received on the internet is not keeping up with the rate at which the video is being played on the screen by the video player application that you are using. The video player has an incoming video stream buffer and if the amount of video data in it falls below a minimum amount, the player will pause until the incoming stream refills it to some point above the minimum amount. Most video players will have a pause button and clicking it will manually pause the video player so allowing its buffer (or cache) to fill until you click its play button again. The player will have an indicator of how much of the video content has been downloaded into the buffer and if you pause until all the content has been downloaded, clicking play at this point results in a play of the video that will not be jerky.

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.

Jerky video when transfered to computer


usually this indicates a slow computer or the other problem could be that some cameras require a firewire to play back and you are using a u.b. port

''Jerky'' play on Adobe Premiere Pro CS4


Try maxing out your temp file storage from within the options in the program. Also does the file play jerky when compiled as a finished file. Using an external player. When the file is played or previewed from within the app it was created, with the GUI loaded and possibly the file not being saved, the amount of memory consumed is exponentially increased.
