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.

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 :: 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?

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.

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.2), Core i7 , 256GB

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 :: DVD Not Working On All T.V's Or DVD Players?

Jun 27, 2010

I'm trying to make a wedding invitation using the iMovie and iDVD software on my mac. I have tried numerous things to make it work right but I'm having little luck.

Basically I have tried all of the following. I have exported from iMovie in both standard and high quality to quicktime and even using the standard iMovie format I've used those files to make DVD's in iDVD. I originally burned the DVD's as NTSC, widescreen with low quality without knowing and later found and changed the region settings to PAL, standard and professional quality.

So far everything I've done still has the same out come. The DVD won't play on some DVD players; The DVD will work & play fine on LCD and Plasma T.V's but wont work on the older tube T.V's. (chops off the top and bottom of the project/ DVD) The DVD's are dicksmith (Aus brand) DVD-R; Will changing the brand and or type of DVD help? Am I missing anything?

P.S. The DVD's I've burned so far all work on the computers I've tested it on.

Hope that made some form of sense?

MacBook Pro :: Speakers Fading In And Out On Different Players

Mar 27, 2012

I have had my MacBook Pro for less than a year and usually very happy with it. However, in the last week the speakers have been playing up. When I'm watching a show or movie, at unexplained times, the audio will fade out so it sounds really quiet and sort of far away. This has been happening on different players, such as VLC and Quicktime. It also happens with different files, and at random times.It seems that playing a song or two on iTunes fixes it. The laptop has definitely NOT been around any liquid or anything that could have damaged the speakers.

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.

Applications :: Preferred Audio Players 2010

Aug 3, 2010

This is going to be a series of threads/polls with the main objective of finding out what applications the members of MacRumors use. These threads/polls are not meant for discussion on whether or not one application is better than another or to ask any questions about these particular applications. It's only purpose is to discuss what application you use (or don't use) as it pertains to the topic. The goal is to collect these series of threads in the end and compile a list of all the polls so that members can view what the members of MacRumors use most often. The applications listed in the poll are by no means definitive and/or complete. If you use another application, vote Other and post the name so others can look into it. Even if you don't use any of the applications listed, you can simply click None. I've tried to list as many applications as I could find for the particular topic. Some are paid, some are free. Some cover all versions of OS X, others only a few versions.

This particular thread focuses on Audio Players for OS X. While iTunes is probably used by many due to the iPod and iPhone, it certainly isn't the only application out there to listen to music. So what audio player do you use for your music?

Applications :: Finding A Way To Put Many Streaming Music Players On The Webpage

Apr 20, 2009

New here and new to making websites. I am making a site to showcase my music, and iWeb was very simple to use. The problem is the only way I can put music on the site is if i drag the mp3 file to the page. After putting 15-20 songs on the page, it takes a very long time to load the page because of all the files. I would much rather host the songs on another site such as imeem.com and place the music player on the page. it would make the page load very quickly, as well as let the visitors hear the music.

i dont want to shrink the files because the quality is much worse. i need to find a way to put many streaming music players on the page. is there a way to do this? i've looked around the forums and found nothing, and iweb didn't have anything in the help files.

Applications :: Application To Make Raw Motion Jpg & AVCHD Files Playable On DVD Players?

Jul 24, 2010

I recently purchased a Panasonic Lumix DMC-Zs7, & I am reading about it's video formats. It shoots AVCHD lite movies and motion jpg movies. I would like to be able to burn these raw movie files unedited to blank DVDs, so my family can view them right away, in the excitement of filming, they are eager to see the results. They do not like to wait for me to do the complex & tedious process of video editing with titles etc, to play. Being able to just burn the raw files for immediate viewing relives me of the burden of complex video editing, of which I do not enjoy very much, & makes family happy, to get the video out of the camera to the DVD player & TV. We have a Philips DVD player that says it can play Divx movies, & an analog tube TV.

So is there a quick painless way that I can get the raw files out of the camera and onto DVD for viewing on a TV. Or is the raw material only viewable on the camera & computer?If the only way to get this material to DVD is by complex video editing, I could be stuck editing literally hours of footage that my family likes to film, they have the film bug, & like to film everything.

OS X :: Cursor Skipping To Another Location?

Dec 29, 2009

I have a MacBook Pro, aluminum running Snow Leopard, 10.6.2.

When I type something, there are times when my cursor will spontaneously skip to another location. As an example: if I am typing this, the cursor might jump to the subject title area.I have been very careful to not touch the trackpad and still have this trouble. I posted this problem some time ago, but had no help or information about this at all. It is getting quite frustrating and I am hoping that someone out there will have a clue about this and perhaps a solution.

Applications :: Pages 09 - How To Skipping Page 1?

Apr 19, 2009

So my cousin wrote up a 10-page paper and he included some pictures and stuff.

He needs to add a title page and it has to have a header of '1', but for some reason I can't figure this out and neither can he. When he presses ENTER/RETURN to open up a free page at the top, it moves the texts down but not the pictures.

So what I'm trying to do now is make a blank document for the title page and put the page count there and just print that off, but NOW I need to know how to start the page count at 2, instead of 1, on the actual body of the essay.

(Btw, I have tried to do just about everything. When I copied the entire doc to paste it after the title page on a new document, it didn't even copy the pictures.)

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.
