I made some home videos using my digital camera and a Cassette to DVD recorder for the older videos. They were just sitting on my harddrive being looked at occasionally. The last time I looked, they were shortened dramatically. I opened them in Pinnacle 10.5 Plus because I was going to make a DVD for my family when we all got together for Easter. This is not working out because the videos are shortened dramatically and most of the data not visible. I tryed opening them in Windows Media Player and they played as 30 second (about) clip and the when on a few seconds after the slider has reached the end of the player. The image froze, but the audio kept going until the end of the video. When I move the slider around a bit while playing it, it jumps to parts of the video that would normally be there, but it's still under the 30 second constraint and a few seconds after the slider reaches the end, it stops playing, but once again audio continues. Is this a problem with my codec? I tryed realplayer, Quicktime, and other players all with the same results. Are my files corrupt? They're about 100-200MB each, even when shortened. If someone can help, it would be greatly appreciated. My computer's specs are in my signature, if needed.

Hello,

What is the file extension of the movies that you are dealing with? ie...vob, .ifo, .avi, .cue, .bin, and so on.

Hello,

MPEG's should play in WMP by default, so I don't think that it is a codec problem. They should also play in your version of Pinnacle as well, so my guess would be that the header is damaged, and it is giving the wrong information to the codecs that handle it's format.


You might look at the options HERE. I have worked with TMPEGnc before, and it is a good app. I have also used MPEG Corrector, and it also did it's job. Both of these are mentioned in the info from the link.

Hope this helps,

nos :thumbsup:
