Jumpy recording

Q: Jumpy recording

I tried a Pinnacle PCTV HD pro stick on my x64Vita ultimate. It worked fine except for the recording. When I played it back it "lagged" actually it looked more like the video was jumping due to the saves to the HDD during the recording. My question is: Is this because of the USB tuner or a machine issue? If so do the PCIe cards not do this?
Thanks

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Jumpy recording

Looking at your system specs I would expect you to be able to view it without any problems.

How up to date are your drivers,and do you get the computer to look for drivers or do you go to Nvidia?

I also notice you only have a single 2Gig stick of Ram, Is that because of the problem installing 64 Bit with too much Ram to start with?

Has it played back correctly in the past?

What program did you use for the recording?

I have followed thoroughly various tutorials for setting up OBS for streaming. Initially I had set it up for Youtube, then switched to Twitch. This works fine. I have absolutely no complaint with that. Streaming out to these platforms is working as I would like.
This issue I'm experiencing is what I can best describe as a pulsing or jumping, about once per second when I play a file back that I have recorded (not streamed) with OBS.

The audio is flawless, no stuttering, nothing like that. Audio BR is at 160...

As I watch the status information in OBS as I am recording, I see no warning about overloaded encoder, the frame rates are where they are supposed to be, no dropped frames. everything should appear to be good. CPU load is unremarkable, again plenty of headroom. It doesn't seem to matter if I increase bit rate, decrease bit rate, CBR, VBR, increase or decrease framerate, or which software i use to view the output fine: VLC, WMP, whatever, there is this pulsing. Its just enough to be annoying. Its subtle, but it's there. And it doesn't matter which PC I play the file on ( I have a few I can test it with)

The computer running OBS is more than adequate for the task.

I have - in an effort to improve things - changed recording format, changed encoder, even the location to which I was saving it ( initially that was a network drive, but I change to an internal SSD for test purposes) I can not get rid of this.

This is just for a little pet project, I ... Read more

Windows Home Premium SP1 with Media Center... How can I change the end time (eg. increase it by 15 mins) of a TV programme I am already recording?!

I started recording a programme from the Guide - it had already started - I was in a bit of a hurry. But the programme is running late (the time in the Guide is wrong!) - how can I extend the recording time? I can not find this (basic) option anywhere?!

I can extend the recording time (by X mins) for a programme I have scheduled to record at some time in the future (under "Record Settings"), but not for the TV show I am currently recording?!

(The TV show goes on for another hour or so and I want to go to bed...)

Hello. I am EpicallyAWSM.

Alright before I explain, I must tell you that I WAS able to record audio previously.

I'm having a problem while recording audio with Fraps (a game video-recording software). Previously, I was unable to find the Stereo Mix at all, until I found the Drivers CD that came with my computer.

After I installed the driver, I tested it on a few different games, but the result was still the same: no audio in my recorded files. I have double-checked, and the volume for Stereo Mix is maxed, and it is set to the default recording device. I have spent countless hours trying to find a fix for this problem, so I decided to file it in myself.

One thing though, is that I'm aware my sound card driver is a little out of date, but I am unable to update it because I get an error while running the setup file. My sound card is "Realtek High Definition Audio Card" - that's all I know about it.

I'm sure my version of Fraps is capable of recording this audio, because I was able to do so before. Suddenly though I was unable to record audio and I had a problem with sound channels in Game Maker 8 (problem I will be asking in the Game Maker forum). I am unsure what to do. Please do not give me the answers I have been seeing for the past week (Check Show All Devices, make sure your volume is maxed, etc.)

Thank you
EpicallyAWSM

A:[Recording] Stereo Mix Available, Sound Recording Not

Are you able to record in any other program, other than fraps? Download the free Audacity recording program and try recording with it.

I recently reformatted / restored my computer, Its a Dell P4 2 gig, 640 Megs ram, Windows XP
Now, when I am scrolling down a page on the internet
for example (Use the Grab scroll bar on the right hand side of the screen) the text and pictures do not slide down smoothly they jump at maybe 3 to 5 lines at a time. It's very irratating.

I have 2 other pc's and they don't do this, They go down smoothly as if it's a continuos page rolling by a window. (I hope thats a good description) and I am pretty sure the Dell didn't do it before I had to reformat. So I'm sure it's something in the settings.

I have tried 3 things so far,

1. Went to control panel and adjusted my mouse wheel settings
No imporvement.

2. In Internet Explorer clicked on tools then Internet options then
the advanced tab clicked and unclicked "Use smooth scrolling"
No Improvement

3. Called Dell Tech support, Very weak so to
speak. To sum it up.... I don't know sir

Hi,
I've got a Dell Vostro 1500 laptop. XP has been upgraded to windows 7. For several years, the cursor has had a mind of it's own-when I'm typing (I believe in any program) suddenly the cursor will jump to a new location. I've tried various fixes, and I just installed a new touch pad to no avail...

Before I upgraded the OS, I recall fixing the problem by tweaking a setting on the touchpad controls, but with W7 there is little control now for mouse/touchpad properties under Control Panel. The guy who upgraded the OS for me hasn't been any help.

I've tried the Dell driver updates in the past-no good. And now with the windows 7 upgrade, I don't know what drivers I would need anyway...Thanks!

A:Jumpy Cursor

Your laptop is not compatible with Windows 7 because there is not any drivers listed for your laptop via the Dell website for your model. This is way you may be having these problems since your machine might be using a generic driver from Microsoft.

A:jumpy monitor

I'm guessing that your monitor is on the "older" side and that could be the whole problem.

Check that your monitor cable is in good condition, no kinks or twists and that it is firmly connected to your video adapter plug.
Install the latest drivers for your video card.
Try changing the resolution settings for the monitor. Try both higher and lower, but don't make any big changes or you might end up with a blank screen.
If possible plug in the monitor on another system. If the problem goes away your video card could be the problem or the monitor is picking up interference at its usual location.

I don't know whether to classify this as Hardware or Software, but seems more softy orientated, so, my problem:

I'm listening to music and it's "Jumping" every half a second or so, I've noticed that the mouse seems to lag at the exact same time when the sound does, also, it accesses the HDD at the same time too, my first thoughts were buffering problems, but if I stop the song and start it again it's fine, but then if I minimize WinAmp it starts the lag again, the lag doesn't show up if I start playing the song when WinAmp is already minimized, but it begins on the next song for some reason.
It seems to start half-way through some songs too, but then it'll disappear as if it was normal HDD activity.

Monitor this "spiking" in Task Manager and see if you can identify first IF the CPU spikes coincident with the problem and second what process is doing it.

I edited a movie that I recorded on my camcorder using Adobe Premiere 3.0. Since I only plan to view it with another computer I do not need to burn a DVD. I exported the finished video to "movie" which created an AVI file. I put the file on my hard drive. It is a five minute video but the file is 1.2 gb. Too big for CD. I copied the file to a DVD-R.

The movie play fine using Media player when playing from hard drive.

When I try to play it from the DVD, the movie is very jumpy. The sound continues ok but the video continues to pause throughout the whole thing.

What is the problem? Do I always need to copy it to hard drive before play back or does it need to be saved in a different format?

Just because a thread even remotely sounds like it has to do with a p2p doesn't mean it should automatically be closed. Case in point is the question about copying downloaded music. First of all the guy never even mentioned a p2p he just said he downloaded some music. Last I checked there are hundreds of sights where you can LEGALLY DOWNLOAD music. Secondly the question is asking about an wma to mp3 converter which has nothing to do with a p2p. The moderators need to be a little less jumpy about this p2p issue. They are hastily removing questions without even reading them to trully understand what there asking. This is going to cause problems for them in the long run so just try to be a little patient before striking people down

Hi, so I have an old Packard Bell monitor and recently the screen has been a little jumpy in that it's image moves up and down slightly. I have recently put in a tnt2 ultra video card and have the resolution set to the monitor's max. No other monitor options were changed though. The 'jumps' only happen once in a while, then nothing.

A:monitor jumpy - too old?

I'd say it's your video card drivers - try updating them to some of the old Detonators, not the 30's or the 40's since those are optimized toward the GF3's and the GF4's, respectively. Try the 10's, or even the 20's. See if that fixes your problem.

You mentioned "new resolution" - which was the monitor's maximum, 1024x768. What resolution were you running it at before? 800x600? If so, then try reverting back to that resolution for like an hour to see if it still does it.

Obviously you have tried a different mouse (yes)?

So maybe a repair of xp will sort it save you a complete install.

How to go about Repairing Windows XP
1. Put your Windows XP Install CD into your CD-ROM drive.
2. Reboot your computer.
3. Let your system boot off of the CD.
4. Let the Setup go through the first part of the Installation procedure.
5. When you come to the screen in which it says "Welcome to Setup." press Enter to Setup Windows XP.
6. Press F8 to agree to the End User License.
7. Let the Setup search your system for previous versions of Windows.
8. When the Setup is finished searching your system, select your Windows XP Installation and press the R key on your keyboard to start the Repair Procedure.

This is the part that might make you nervous . The Setup will delete all major system files and then replace them with new copies.

You will have to download all of the updates from Microsoft Windows Update again because it replaces the files.

Don't worry, your user data is still intact. Nothing has been lost, nothing has been deleted. Your data is safe, just the OS has been repaired, so relax.

There is nothing to worry about as long as you follow the steps to repairing Windows XP.

Hey, I just got finished building my new PC and I am having a issue with the mouse being extremelly jumpy. This happens when downloading files with utorrent or from websites, my old PC never did this and the new one is about 4x faster although the older PC had XP.

The mouse just acts like it is lagging really bad, however whats strange is this only happens when browsing around on the desktop, and downloading/transfering files at the same time. In games this never happens the mouse works fine even with the games highest graphics settings(WOW, Company of Heroes, Crysis).

Hi there

I'm a nfg with Beeping Computer and I'm having a problem when I use the scrool wheel on my mouse. The screen jumps up and down when I scrool. This is somewhat annoying. I've done some research on this and all I come up with is to update the video driver but it keeps coming back that the driver is functioning normally. I don't know how to replace the old driver with a new one. I use an e machines ( Model # ET1161-07) with Vista. The video adaptor is NVIDIA Gelforce 6150se Nforce 430, at least that's what the device manager says.

Any ideas? I sure could use one or two.

Thanks

I just bought a good new computer. When I move a window, or scroll down, it does not move smoothly, but 'jumps' every few pixels. Is there a way to fix this with some settings or is it another problem? thank you.

i have just recently bought a second hand Acer Aspire 5630 and when i have tried to play a variety of dvds the picture jumps all over the place. Any idea what might be causing this. I don't want to return it to the store if i can help it as it will most likely take them ages to get around repairing it. Any help/advice appreciated. ps i play using windows media player as the default programme.

When playing BF2, when I look around, the graphics are jerky, and if I spin in 360s, there seems to be a jump every second or so

Changing the quality settings makes no difference

Okay so here's the deal: My machine is a 2ghz P4 with 1024 mb DDR RAM and a GeForce 4 Ti4600 and is running on Windows XP sp1. My problem is, whenever I try to play ANYTHING involved with graphic rendering the game lags for like two to three seconds every five or so seconds making it very jumpy. Now this practically makes gaming impossible. I've tried different versions of DirectX and display drivers but they don't make a difference. I've experienced this problem before, but before it occurred every five minutes, and the problem could be solved by defragmenting my main harddrive. I've defragmented all of my drives and I have a lot of available space left. I've also tried closing ALL unnecessary applications (normally I have about 50 running, then I had only 20) and it only increased performance, the same jumpy problem remained. Decreasing or increasing hardware acceleration doesn't work. Sisoft sandra software has been complaining that one of my fans failed or is spinning too slowly. It says it's spinning at around 1700rpm, I don't know if that makes a difference. My geforce is runnin in 4xAGP. The problem occurred only like two weeks ago and I haven't noticed anything else that's out of order. So if you have any ideas? I'm kind of desperate.

Ok i recently posted on the hardware forum about how my computer wouldnt boot if my 7900gt was plugged into the psu. I bought a brand new triple 12v rail 550watt thermaltake purepower psu to try combat the problem. Its made a slight difference, quake 4 runs awsome on high detail with x2 AA and all the bells and whistles turned on.

My spec is.

Intel C2Duo E6320 w/ stock fan
2gb Kingston and Corsair 533mhz DDR2
X-FI ExtremeMusic S/card
XFX 7900GT 256mb
Thermaltake PurePower 550w 3x12v Rail
Asus P5VD2-Mx SE

BF2 runs fantasticly fps wise with everything turned up, but theres an intermitant freeze for a couple of seconds regularily. Same with FEAR, and even sometimes in warcraft.

Also sometimes when my computer boots, i hear the windows start theme, then the mouse freezes and the theme skips and repeats for 10 seconds then suddely everything starts agen. Leaving games sometimes there is a short lock up.

Really annoying me now, im not getting any artifacts or overheating. CPU temp is just over fourty on load 35 when idle. This is also a fresh install of windows, no background processes are eating my memory either.

Thanks In Advance!

Last year I bought this very nice Olympia digital camera. It also takes videos which I just tried for the first time recently. It saves the files in MP4 format. When I try to play them on my computer it opens Apple Quicktime. Apparently Windows Media Player does not support MP4, which I thought was a "public" format. Does Apple own it?
Anyway, the video plays smoothly on the camera but the video (not the sound) is jumpy, skipping short sections about once or twice a second. I have a modern video card with 512 MB memory (NVIDIA GeForce 5200). Is there a better player than Quicktime for MP4 files available ? Any recomomedations?

So I've got the common problem that many people face...too many people in my family who think they know everything about computers and that they aren't the problem. Well I don't know everything myself but know much more than most my family. I've already run Spybot and Adaware and removed some stuff...I'm about ready to remove Norton off of this box as I hate it. I?d much rather just put AVG on...but it's not my computer and not my ultimate choice. Anywho..here are the results of running hijackthis.

To whom it may concern;

I have a condition on my Dell E1075 whereby the audio is jumpy no matter whether it is streaming audio or local off of a CD. I would like to know if others have had this problem and how it can be resolved.

Thanks.

Try updating the audio drivers?

Or simply removing the current ones and then reinstalling them anew? They could be corrupt/damaged.

Hi, So I have a Yoga 920, and I have a problem with the touchpad. If I want to do small adjument to the cursor, I need to move my finger past a little distance where the touchpad seems to not register the tracking.And when I go far enough with my finger, the cursor jumps to the position where it would be if it would have start moving with my finger. After that, the cursor works great until I lift my finger and put it back on the touchpad, doing the same thing. There is like a small buffer zone where the cursor would not move, maybe to prevent accidental touch, which is great, but the problem is with the little jump that the cursor do, it makes doing small adjusments really hard. I can do (really) small circle with my finger and the cursor does not move at all. I test this on a lot of other laptop, and none have the same problem. Thanks for any help, please tell me if you have the same issue.Beurnii

When i try to watch a dvd on my computer it seems to be overwhelmed and seems like it has to pause to buffer every few seconds.
When i bought this pc DVDs played just fine, now it sorta skips/jumps while playing because it freezes for an instant every now and then. This affects everything, including the mouse, but only while watching a DVD.

Its like the drive doesnt keep up with the computer, but the processor never goes above 90%
so i know its not maxing out and hanging because of that.
Maybe i need new drivers? But idk where to find them.

Hello,

I have just recently developed a very jumpy mouse! When I go to drag an email into a folder it takes several attempts to make it work. It keeps getting dropped or ends up on the task bar?

Also when I try to highlight a line of text to delete or make corrections the highlight jumps all over the place or when I let go of the left button the highlight disappears? This happens everywhere.m in the pas
At first I though there might be a bug in the computer but I have tried several scans with "Malware Bytes" an nothing shows up. I use "Avast" for virus protection and the scans are clean. The mouse is a Logitech Wireless and it has never been a problem in the past. I though the problem might be relegated to just my email program "Windows Mail" but it is showing up everywhere?

I am running Vista (32) and Firefox Ver 3.6.2

Has anyone ever experienced this. Would appreciate your help on trying to correct

Thanking you in advance.
