Default Choppy Video using Super - All of a Sudden?

Please Login to Remove!

In the past (up until yesterday) I have successfully used Super to encode video captured from the Tivo unit to my PC - then encoded by Super to the Pearl. But all of a sudden the video is very choppy - really just sequential still imagines from the video - audio is fine.

Any idea what could be going on?

Thanks

Did you happen to have a lot of things going on your comp while you were recording? Sounds like the processor/memory/etc was bogged down and created the problem. This is common with audio cd recording as well.

Actually you might be right - this was the first time I recorded show from my TIVO while I was using the computer for other things. Usually, I set-up the recording before going to bed so it is the only thing running on the computer.

I will have to test things tonight by going back to only having the recording software running on my computer.

The only thing that is perplexing is that the recorded file on my computer than I am encoding runs fine on my computer... just not the blackberry after encoding and transferring it.

Thanks so much

Actually that makes perfect sense - the recorded file is fine, but the encoded one (one you were processing and creating) while other things were going on with the comp is goofy. Just sounds like the processor/memory was bogged is all when you were encoding it.

Actually I was referring to my computer use during the recording to my laptop not when I was encoding it. I have always let Super run in the background while I do email - so this hasn't changed.

In any event, something has changed in the encoding process as I just tired to encode a show I previously successfully encoded and watch on by BB and it too is choppy.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I just discovered a video I previously recorded successfully and watched on my BB is now choppy. However other videos on the phone I have had a while are still fine.

Any chance something could be going on with the SD card?

Strange. So now its not the encoding but the pearl playing them. I don't know what to tell ya'.
