Video Issues

Question

I've been having a hard time thinking of how to describe the problem I'm having converting my videos from VHS to DVD. There is no problem capturing the video or audio but after the video plays for a few seconds, it freezes in a grid pattern while the video still plays in the background. So basically what you see is a fragmented still picture with the video playing still playing. I thought it may be a space issue, so I defraged and cleaned up some disk space, but it didn't help. I'm not sure why this is happening but if anyone has any ideas I'd appreciate hearing them. It totally could be as simple as my computer being old and crappy, but it does meet all of the minimum requirements for the program. Anyhow, any thoughts would be great!

Read this and also tell us a bit more about your "old and crappy computer", ie some computer specs.

The only item of concern with your PC is that it does not have an actual Video Card but rather utilizes a ‘video chip’ on the motherboard…

(unless you replaced it, like I did on my Dell 530)

 

But that may not be the actual cause so let’s poke a few other things before blaming the chip :lol:

 

First, in the V2D Software, use File - Preferences to set it for Software Render! (this eliminates the chip for now)

Defrag your HDD! Do it even if it claims you don’t need to ;)

 

Reboot and do 2 short (5 minute) captures:

 

One from you VHS Player…

One from a DVD Player…

Check Playback – and better yet, burn both of them onto a DVD RW disc and try them in a Player.
