OS X :: Video Media Players - VLC On Mac Skipping

Apr 26, 2009

i'm running VLC on both mac and on windows on my macbook. My VLC on mac skips around once every minute and a half. its barely noticeable but i notice it and it bothers the hell out of me. Mplayer does the same thing.


MacBook Pro :: Video Skipping Frames MBP 17" DVD Player, VLC?

Mar 8, 2010

Lately I have been having trouble when playing some DVDs and other videos on my laptop (MBP 17" 2.93 Intel Core 2 Duo, 8GB RAM, Mac OS X 10.6.2).

It seems it's skipping frames: it is especially clear on side camera movements such as pans, but it happens all throughout the DVD or video I'm playing. The movements are as if some frames were taken out, resulting in a "jumpy" image.

Besides the obvious fact that it's extremely annoying, I am very puzzled because it happens with all sorts of original DVDs, and also with some online videos (such as this one: [URL], which I also highly recommend, if you'll allow me), but not with all. It doesn't matter whether I play the DVD with Apple's DVD Player or with VLC, the skipping happens anyway. It doesn't affect audio or any other application.

.mpg, .avi and other video formats seem not to be affected. Only VIDEO_TS folders or original DVDs seem to have this problem, as well as the above mentioned Vimeo video (which suggests it could happen with other streaming videos, but I haven't had that problem yet - Youtube seems to work just fine).

I wouldn't be able to specify when it started happening (probably about a month or two ago) but it hasn't been like this always, so I don't have a lot of info on any updates that may have caused the problem.

MacBook Air :: Unable To Use VLC Media Player With AVCHD MTS2 1080p60 Video?

Apr 23, 2012

I just loaded VLC (32/64 bits Intel Mac ,2.0.1) on my 13.3" Core i7 Air with 256GB SSD and it does not play my 1080p60 video smooth like on my PC using VLC on Windows 8 Consumer Preview. Is there another free player for AVCHD MTS2 1080p60 video that might work better in Lion ? I also tried MPlayerX and the 1080p60 video looks smooth but audio is out of sync. I hope Mountain Lion comes with Quicktime that supports AVCHD MTS2 1080p60 video files from my two year old Panasonic TM700 camcorder.

Mac Pro :: Audio Skipping In ITunes/Quicktime And VLC?

Feb 25, 2010

i have an '05 powermac g5, dual 2.0ghz with 3 gigs of ram and this problem just started today.

any song i listen to in itunes skips horribly! also, the audio from any movie file i play in either quicktime or VLC has the same problem.

i have updated all three programs to the current version.

i tried disabling my login items as recommended by some advice i found by googling, but this didn't work either.

i also made a new admin account to see if the problem would still occur on a fresh account and it did.

i don't know what else to do. what could be causing this problem?

might it be hardware related? i don't know how to check for that.

I've been having problems with VLC. When I watch fullscreen movies on my external display (24", plugged via DVI), the picture (along with the sound) occasionally skips just little a bit. This happens about once every minute or two and isn't really that bad

Applications :: Can I Stream Divx Files With VLC Media Player?

Jan 31, 2010

I was wondering if it is possible to use VLC media player or video LAN to stream divx videos off the internet. I like to watch divx videos on stagevu but i dont like to use divxs player because it seems buggy. I have downloaded VLC before I had the divx player and couldnt figure out how to get it to play streamed videos. Is VLC capable of this or is it just for media on the hard drive or a disc.

Software :: GPU Powered AVCHD Video Editors / Players?

Sep 18, 2009

I have an iMac with the Radeon 2600 graphics (I think it's about a year old). I'm looking for a video editing package (or at minimum playback package) that uses video processing to decode the AVCHD files (.mts in my case). I've demo'd a couple packages which I was told did not use GPU support and of course they brought my machine to a standstill and the video clips as well. I realize I can translate them to MP4 or something instead but I then have to manage the original clips vs the outputs. I'd at least like to have something that catalogs the files and keeps meta-data so they're organized since my Canon camcorder seems to reuse file names. realize Adobe's package has native editing but even on that one, I'm not sure it uses the GPU. I believe the 2600 has AVCHD support. I think it says AVC H.264 which I think is what I'd need assuming there existed such a package.

OS X :: Video Keeps Skipping On Every Computer?

Feb 25, 2010

I have used 3 iMac's/Macbooks and continue to have this issue. I even had a 27" i7 with 8 gb/ram. Every time I would click or do something while a video was streaming (on Hulu for example) I would get a slight stutter in the video.I have all updates installed. I know many of you use Mac Mini's to stream media to your televisions. I don't understand why I've experienced these problems with three different computers. I suppose it may be a Flash problem? Just looking for tips. I noticed it again today when I tried to stream something on CNN.

MacBook Air :: Flash Video Playback Skipping - How To Fix It

Oct 5, 2008

Just noticed that when I'm lying on the bed with my MBA on my legs, watching so [URL]videos....it starts skipping in about 10-15 minutes.

I don't see core shutdowns.....but actually the video/audio is going to desync and starts skipping....is this normal? Do I have to get a MB/MBP just to watch Hulu and flash videos?

I think this may be related to the temperature, but usually it's not that hot.

Mac Mini :: New Mac Mini - Choppy Video Playback In VLC For Mkv Or Avi Files

Sep 30, 2010

Just bought the new mac mini with HDMI out - 2.66Ghz, 8 Gb RAM, 500 Gb HDD

A lot of mkv or avi files I playback appear pretty choppy in VLC - my primary app for watching movies and tv shows.

I have a Drobo with two 2 TB SATA drives where I store all my stuff and which is connected to my mini via firewire 800.

I've tried playing the same video back from both the Drobo and from the internal hard drive, to see if the choppiness was on account of the external drive or not. No difference really. A choppy video remains choppy from either place.

It's pretty strange because some 1080p videos play just fine, with no choppiness whatsoever, while other 720p videos or even standard definition divx files are still choppy.

MacBook :: Video Chat Skipping And Very Low Volume On Aluminum Macbook

Apr 23, 2009

I just bought the 2.0 ghz 2 gb ram aluminum mac book.

When I video chat, its always skipping and very pixalated. Also, the volume is very low even though all volume meters is as loud as possible. This is only for video chat, for all other sound its great.

My question is, is this a ram thing? Should I buy for ram, will it fix it?

Is this something I should bring into Apple about?

Software :: Quicktime And VLC Won't Play Back H264 Encoded Video

Apr 4, 2008

I have an iMac G5. Running Leopard 10.5.2. It's working just swimmingly... except that it won't play back h264 video. I have the latest versions of both Quicktime and VLC. Each app handles the video files differently. Quicktime will give me this message: "The movie could not be opened. An invalid sample description was found in the movie." VLC will play the audio, but not the video. My computer can handle HD playback just fine (I watch most of my movies in 720p AVI files,) so that can't be the problem. This is just driving me insane. Does anyone have a solution for me?

One day, it was running in the high 1000s, and my movies were running perfectly. Now that my computer is always running at 6000+rpm. This problem is quite recent as it has just started doing this overrunning fan speed about 3 months ago. Does anyone know what I should do?

ITunes :: Media Folder Location Moved - Deleted All Media?

Apr 24, 2012

I recently changed the iTunes Media Folder default location to a different area on my drive. I waited a couple minutes and the files did not move. I was unaware you had to go into your settings and also select to consolodate files. Since the files didn't move I reselected my default location and kept trying to go back and forth a couple times. After letting it sit for a couple more minutes I noticed over 200 GB's of files were missing. I looked in each folder I tried to change the default Media Folder location to but they were not in either of them. I have also ran multiple system file recover programs and been unable to find them.

Applications :: Any Good Simple Music Players?

Oct 10, 2009

I know, I know... iTunes is the end all, be all for mac users as far as music players go. But I don't like to use iTunes all the time... there are times when I download a bunch of music and just don't have time to organize it and make sure it's tagged correctly, so I don't wanna add it to my iTunes library just yet...

so I am wondering, is there any other good music players out there that you might know of? I don't need it to go ahead and organize my music, I just need it to be able to open individual tracks or music off a folder and play it. A player with an appealing UI and shuffle mode would be ideal. I tried Vox btw, but it's kinda ugly though.
