Topic: Stuttering video in latest update - Page: 1
Just had an VDJ update come through today. Played on the system tonight and noted that about three videos had "stuttering video" it's not freezing it looks like a special effect where the video is jumping around in a 1 second or so range of the correct position.
Latest update had a green screen fix for interlaced video and I suspect it's related to that. Stopping the track and playing again to see if it's vdj or an actual effect of the video and there was no stuttering.
It was stuttering in both the deck preview windows and the main, and switching video across decks didn't help.
Also there is a bug where if you have a plugin set for audio only tracks, if you play two MP3 files both decks preview Windows Dissapeared, but the main window shows the plugin correctly. Playing a MP3 and a video and the background plugin appears in the MP3 decks preview window.

I can get the flicker stutter as well in some videos. Sort of waiting to see what they do with above with the second video that I posted. It was more about stale frames being displayed (after the green was fixed) but seems it could be related to the stutter as well.

Not able to reproduce it here so far, and didn't find anything in recent updates either that I think might cause this

Here's one video it did happen on (please delete link after download)
I also increased my ASIO driver buffer on the MCX8000 so not sure if that has made a difference?

The key here is that the problem appeared at exactly the same time that the green screen at the start of the video was fixed. I'm sure it's linked.
Perhaps we could UN fix the green screen problem!? It would likely fix this problem!

You generally need to supply more info for video or the actual video when possible. Helps to narrow it down. The extension may not be any help since that can be anything and not related to the internal video type.
Everyone should have at least MediaInfo. It tells a number of things about video and audio files. Helps you to help them narrow things down.
They already have a sample for this one and should be all they need.

have tried with FPS for video and skin both at 60 and both at 32 and neither had effect.
loading a video the skin and video frame rate drops down to under 20 and has dropped as low as 12fps
disable video or dump video from other deck and everything smooths out
no plugins running while doing this either
enabling ExperimentalSkinEngine leads back to deck showing track as loaded after dumping track and still has the stuttering both on skin and video

kradcliffe, it does not happen with all video formats as far as I can tell and may be the reason you don't see it on occasion. Seems fine with mp4 and others here. Play the sample file above. It should produce the problem. But when I load it on both decks, it may play fine on one deck etc. Play it twice on a single deck without reloading. This looks like a simple play back issue.. Maybe whoever fixed the green problem screwed up big time but who knows..
John, your problem seems different. Are you seeing that on Win7 and did aero get turned off by mistake? I am not seeing that here with aero on, but with it off it gets erratic frame rate wise.
