I need to chop up the production of the show into different parts, because rendering the video in the different stages takes a lot more time for the HD show. No problem, the computer can do that alone. But the gaps are now so large that I can’t fit the production into one day.
The problems with the video decoding are caused by the use of the “AVC1” codec. This thing is quite modern and powerful, but needs a lot of machine resources and current software for playing it.
I can’t help you if your machine is too slow to play the video – you’ll have to switch to the mobile version and have basically the same quality as before except for a worse zoom factor. If there is demand for an intermediate format we can do that also – just write a comment with a proposition.
Mac/Quicktime users find an update here: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/23875/avc1decoder, for Windows this was recommended: http://download.cnet.com/The-KMPlayer/3000-13632_4-10659939.html
As I don’t use Windows or Mac I can’t t tell you what happens if you install the software. 😉 And if you have additional tips, links and comments, click on the heading of this posting and you’ll see a comment area below.
