What Is Causing .avi Files To Play Choppy

Question

Question 1: I've burned several .AVI videos from my digital cameras using Toast 9.0.4 on my MacBook Pro using Leopard. When I play them on my computer the sound and picture are choppy. I thought it might be the DVDs I'm using, but I've tried several brands and it happens with all of them. I played one of the .AVI videos in iMovie after I burned the DVD and it played fine, but only in iMovie. What is causing the problem and what can I do to fix it? I have a lot of dog training videos that I want to keep for reference and that other people have asked me to give them a copy of. I'm burning them for Mac & PC using -R DVDs.

 

Question 2: Can I "fix"/reburn the .AVI videos I've already burned that are coming out choppy? How?

 

Question 3: Someone who wants a copy of the training videos is on the PC and she gave me +R DVDs do I burn them with the same settings as I'm using for the -R DVDs?

 

Thanks. I'm desperate because my external hard drive is getting more and more full while I'm trying to figure out how to fix this problem.

I'm burning them for Mac & PC

Did you burn a Data disc for Mac & PC (HSF+/Joliet) with the AVI as-is, or a DVD-Video with Toast-converted MPEG-2 video?

What framerate (fps) did the camera record at?

If you burned as DVD-Video, was it NTSC (29.97 fps) or PAL (25 fps)?

 

Question 3: Someone who wants a copy of the training videos is on the PC and she gave me +R DVDs do I burn them with the same settings as I'm using for the -R DVDs?

Yes, there is no distinction between the two types of discs at the user level.

Forgot to mention I'm using Toast 9 Basic.

 

I'm not sure what you mean. I just selected the "Mac & PC" selection under "Data" on the menu on the left side of the window. I'm not very experienced with technical stuff. I just dragged the .AVI files onto the window that lists items to be burned. Video resolution from my camera is 640x480. I don't know the frame rate the camera is set for. I've looked at the manual and I can't see where that information is located.

 

It's set for NTSC.

 

Could the problem be with the way my QuickTime player is set? I just looked at the "Show A/V Controls" under "Window". Could the Playback Speed be the problem? The Playback Speed is at 1X.
