Choppy Video


Todd R

Question

I've installed EMC 9 on a new PC running XP but haven't used it much on this machine yet. The problem is when I try to view videos I've made on other machines with Roxio (both EMC 9 and earlier versions), the video looks terrible. It's very choppy. It'll do this when I try playback on Windows Media Player (either version), or any other video player I have. If I try a video I have not created with Roxio, it will play just fine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled EMC 9...when I tried to playback a Roxio-made video right after the uninstall, it gave me a codec error. Now I'm getting the choppy video again. Is there some kind of compatibility issue with some other software that is causing this? I have Creative Media Source installed for my wife's mp3 player and I had Nero Essentials on before, but removed it to see if that was the problem. It was not. Any help would be appreciated.

You are having a codec problem. I would suggest watching what codec you use to encode your video with. Also, check to see if the media player on the computer you are playing it on is up to date, let alone with yours. Try encoding the video to a WMV or Windows Media Video File. Its more universal to share with friends or family. DV AVI also is universal, but it will be a HUGE, file.
