Problems playing videos on my computer

I have the HP Pavillion A1110N computer.  I recently bought an HD camcorder and connected it to the computer.  It managed to install the software and loaded all the videos that I took.  However, playback seemed to be jumpy and the audio and video were not synchronized.  I played all the videos (11 videos to be exact) on the software and all were the same.  What could be the problem?

How did you transfer the videos from the camcorder to your computer?  Did you do it through USB cable or through Firewire (IEEE1394) cable?  If you transfer your video to another computer and the video and audio are still not synchronized then the problem most likely occurred during data transfer.  Data transfer is faster with Firewire than USB.  This is why it is more suitable to use Firewire.  Delays in the data transfer is one cause of the video and audio not being synchronized which is why you should transfer via the Firewire interface of your HP Pavillion A1110N.

Another probable cause is your PC's process (an Intel Celeron) cannot keep up with the decoding of the video.  Video from the camcorder is usually very large and the resolution is very high which means there's more processing that needs to be done in order for it to playback properly.  In this case, you should compress the video by converting it to a lower resolution avi, mpg, mp4 or other smaller format.  You can check other posts in the techyv forum for recommended video conversion applications.

Whatsup,

Here the problem might have been on the media player of your computer. The way the videos are arranged in the camcorder or external disk is not the same way the player in the computer recognizes the media. The problem might have also been on the media player.

You may try uninstalling the media player and reinstalling to find out if its the media player that has an error.

Restore your system to an earlier time or simply uninstall with the 'Add or remove programs'

After uninstalling, reinstall and the problem should be solved.

Thanks
