Q: Gopro knockoff(vivitarDVR785) cant play the video I recorded.

I downloaded the cd software program and plugged my device in and it came up on the software, the vid, but when i play it or any other vid it just plays for like 1 sec then freezes the program and i have to close it(the full video will play on the lcd screen on the device).

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I recently recorded a video interview using my laptop's video recording, the video was a little over 30 minutes long. When I went to play the video, my computer would not play it. When I try to open it, it says "Can not play. Choose something else to play. This item is in a format we don't support.  0xc1010103" even though it will play other videos I have recorded on the computer. I am not sure if the video was too long or if it somehow got corrupted.  This is a very important video that I need for a class assignment, is there any way I can play it?

I had posted a question a while back about setting up a network and with the answers from "Tech Guy"did get a system working just fine. My Desktop is a Dell Dimension 8400 with XP Media center OS and the laptop is a Toshiba Satellite with Windows Vista Premium. I have two external drives the one I use primarily in storing my present personal active files including a file that stores recording media which the desktop Media Center gets from the TV cable connection. Then this file is also available via the network to the laptop. With the external drive all my other stored files from the desktop are also available on my laptop. Lately I have had several movie downloads and several repeats of the series "Jag"which play on the desktop but will not play on the laptop with various excuses for them not playing like "Cannot play this format:" or " for one reason or another "not authorized to play". I would think the recordings between the two Media Centers would be identical unless Microsoft has changed that too with Vista. I am very unhappy with Vista.

I took numerous GoPro MP4 video footage today but the last video isn't recognized by Quicktime, Win Media Player or VLC. When I took the memory card out of the camera, it appeared that maybe it wasn't seated all the way...possibly knocked loose when I crashed my bike. Regardless, the file has 671MB but when I open in VLC, it shows "00:00" for time. Additionally, there was a crashlog created by VLC that shows the following. If anybody has any suggestions on how to view the footage, I'd greatly appreciate it, thank you.

A:GoPro MP4 not recognized, won't play

Hi, That sounds annoying, a 670MB file that you can't play.
Can you make a copy of it, then rename that file, any name will do, and that has been known to fool a video player into playing it back. Please only rename the copy.
Otherwise can you load the file into a video editor and save it out as a new file?
I have used Windows live movie maker and it worked well for me.

Looking for a little advice. I borrowed a friends GoPro Hero2. Took about 50 short little action videos. 35 of the videos I can view fine as I play in VLC or other video viewer programs. The other 15 just come up as a black screen with no video duration. The properties indicate the footage is there, but I am unable to view it. I also tried uploading these videos into GoPros 'Cinepro' but they won't upload there either. Really want to see these remaining clips -Any help is so appreciated!

Hello all, I want to use my GoPro Hero 3 to promote my web site but the play back is choppy as is the audio. Any suggestion for an operating system to enhance the video?



A:GoPro play back running Choppy

Not enough information.

It's likely not the operating system. Most common cause of chippiness would be an underpowered PC (ie: cpu or video card) which can't handle the video type used (ie: high bit rate HD sources), outdated drivers, or a codec/media player issue.

Hi, i recorded a streaming video off of the internet and when i came to play it i noticed it was very quiet. I was wondering if there was anyway to make it sound louder without turning up the volume on my speakers? I used the program - Frontcam - to record the video.

I await your replies

A:Recorded Video Sound

To record sound: Right click the icon of "volume control" on your system tray bar (on the right bottom corner of the screen) and then go to the menu item "options"->"properties"->"recording" and press the "OK" button, check the proper item you want to recording and then start sound recording.
To record sound from microphone: check "Microphone".
To record sound from other application: check "Stero Mix" or "Mono Mix", the name may be different depending on your system.

I had been recording cartoon shows off and on for my godson to watch. In February, I started getting errors and every attempt to burn a video DVD aborts. At first I thought maybe I had some bad DVD+R media, but I am able to burn other things to DVD outside of Media Center. I can burn data DVDs, but fail on video DVDs.

Here is what happens: In Media Center, I select the episodes of recorded TV shows that I want to burn to DVD. The process starts normally, indicating that it may take "several hours" to finish. After about an hour or so, at around 25% completion, I hear the DVD burner spin up like it is going to start burning the DV. After a few (less than ten) seconds, it stops and ejects the disk. In Media Center, an error comes up saying: "BURN FAILURE, An error has occurred in burning the CD/DVD." There is no further info nor error codes. It appears that something does get burned to the disk during those few seconds, because the system will no longer recognize the disk and it must be trashed.

Hello. A long time ago I had a MSI x320, which was a 13" netbook that I got for $300 or so from Staples
It was actually pretty awesome, as it did everything I needed but had a decent sized keyboard.

The problem is the GMA 500. The drivers were shit and so it wasn't as powerful as Intel claimed it to be.

So i filed a complaint with the BBB, and Intel offered to refund me the full amount.

Worst mistake I ever made.

So I've been trying to find a similar laptop for a while (cheap Netbook with a big screen), and the only one i could find was this: 13" Ultra SlimNetbook Intel Atom N450 1GB on eBay.ca.

It appears to be based off of the MSI X-series, but the chipset does not match any existing products and the bottom looks different from the x320 and x340. what it uses is a newer Atom with an intergrated GPU.

My question is: would this be a good buy or the beginning of a load of pain?
I was perfectly happy with the X320 build, but would something like this be poorly made and fall apart?


A:Is this a good buy? (Knockoff 13" netbook)

I do not know if it's a good buy or not, but I seen where it said Windows 7 Pro then down a little it said OS: Windows XP Windows 7 you should ask.

So this one is pretty weird for me. I've never had any issues like this before, but I think it has to do with having all my drivers up to date. I was having this problem for a long time where I couldn't run games for too long because eventually the whole screen would get all glitchy and the last second of sound would repeat itself over and over until the monitor went into power saving mode. I tried reinstalling drivers, installing different graphic drivers like NGO and Omega which I had before.. Nothing worked!

Well, just recently my friend showed me this program driver cleaner pro and he said it helped him with his driver issues. So I followed the directions, uninstalled my drivers, cleared everything with the program in safe mode, restarted and reinstalled the drivers. Voila, all my games work with no issues at all, except for Counter-Strike 1.6.
Then I tried to watch a movie; It plays fine, I can hear the sound fine, but the video doesn't play. Even when I tried to record a video with fraps of one of my emulators (which has worked before), it didn't show video on playback.

So I restarted my computer.. now all my games don't work except Diablo 2, Starcraft, and CS 1.6. However, now I can watch movies with no problem at all! These past couple of weeks I've been having to go through the whole process of using driver cleaner pro, and installing Omega drivers again everytime my computer needed to reboot.

Apple let a knockoff version of one of the world's biggest crypto wallets into the App Store
An app masquerading as MyEtherWallet.com, one of the internet’s most popular services for storing ETH and other crypto coins, has made its way to the top of the iOS App Store charts.
The app rose to the number three spot in Finance category of the App Store this weekend as part of a bitcoin frenzy that saw bitcoin exchange Coinbase top Apple’s free download list in the U.S.. In this case, however, it is important to note this app is not official so users should avoid downloading it.
The app developer — who is listed is Nam Le — has three other apps with Apple, including two panda fighting games, but no history of crypto or bitcoin services.
The creators of MyEtherWallet said in a tweet that they have contacted Apple in a bid to have the app removed.
We’ve reached out to Apple to get an idea how it made it through all of the standard safety checks, and to ask whether it will remain in the App Store.

Google security boffins have thrown the book at Comodo for turning off Chrome security.
As explained in this advisory today, users who install Comodo Internet Security may not realize that their Chrome installation is replaced with Comodo's own browser, Chromodo.
That little bit of crapware isn't secure at all: it's set as the default browser, and "all shortcuts are replaced with Chromodo links and all settings, cookies, etc are imported from Chrome. They also hijack DNS settings, among other shady practices," Google's Tavis Ormandy notes.
Chromodo is promoted as a "private browser" on Comodo's website, but it's not only not private, it's not remotely safe to use, because it also disables Chrome's same-origin policy.
The same-origin policy enforces a rule that one script can only access data in another script if they're both from the same site. Without it, users are exposed to malicious sites sniffing private data.

Although the problem isn't completely solved I am able to work off my desktop. If somebody has a any suggestion as to why this error would occur from the ones in the front it would be much appreciate.

Hi everyone, after importing GoPro video onto my desktop PC, the video playback is so choppy that I can barely view it. Very sluggish. I have better luck on my laptop, a Lenovo Yoga Intel Core i5 1.60 GHz with 4 GB ram, 128 GB SSD, and Intel HD Graphics 4000, but would like to be able to use my desktop PC for video editing. The specs on my desktop PC are:

- AMD Athlon II 2.8 GHz
- 8 GB RAM (can upgrade up to 16GB)
- Hard Drive: 1 TB, SATA, 7200 rpm speed
- Integrated Graphics using ATI Radeon 4200 (can upgrade with PCI Express x16 graphics card)
- Power Supply 250W

I don't have this problem when viewing any other video on this desktop PC. The GoPro video I'm importing is 1080P 60 FPS and I'm using GoPro Studio as well as Adobe Premier Pro. I know that recording at a lower resolution may be one solution, but I'm wondering what if anything I could upgrade on my computer to fix this issue with choppy stuttering playback of GoPro videos. I'm posting this in the graphics cards forum because I'm thinking that may be the problem, but I'm not sure, as it could just be that the AMD CPU isn't powerful enough to handle such huge video files. If a better graphics card would help, I'm hoping for suggestions on what to buy that is appropriate for my CPU and what power supply I would need. I'm curious why the performance is so much worse on my PC than the Lenovo Yoga laptop.

I could only find things on the internet regarding video websites like Youtube and such but I couldn't find anything with files on the computer.

I received a GoPro Black camera for Christmas and cannot seem to get my Dell XPS 15z to play my videos correctly.  What can I do to improve the playback of my video's taken with the GoPro?

A:How to improve compatibility with GoPro Black camera

Hi codavis,
Dell XPS 15z (L511z) is equipped with NVidia’s Optimus technology. I would like to know if you are playing the GoPro camera videos in a normal player or you using GoPro camera video player software.
If you are using GoPro camera video player software then assign the GoPro application to NVidia Graphics Processor, it can done by following the below steps.

Open the NVIDIA Control Panel.
Select Manage 3D Settings.
Click on the Program Settings tab
In 1:Select a program to customize:- click on Add
Browse to the application / game and open the executable file by clicking Open
In 2:Select the preferred graphics processor for this program- click on the tab and select High Performance NVIDIA processor
Click on Apply and the settings will be saved.

 Please let me know if this helps.
