Solved video from camera running too fast on playback

January 28, 2014 at 13:52:01
Specs: Windows 7
When I use the video function on my PowerShot A1200, and play it back, it runs far too fast. I transfer the video to my Pavili G6. Do I need to make changes on my laptop or camera.

✔ Best Answer
There's three ways you could be viewing the videos--watching them on the camera screen, playing then on the camera but viewing them on the laptop or copying the video files to the laptop and viewing them there. I'm not sure which methods you've tried and which are causing the speeded up playback. Most likely if you try all three you'll be able to figure out if they're being recorded too fast or played back too fast.

I plug camera into laptop and msg says "import photos and videos". I click on import and it imports it into Windows Live Photo Gallery and photos/videos are saved into my Pictures Icon/Folder.

Most likely you don't have the proper codec installed or it is corrupt. Try VLC player and see if it works better.

VLC Player is here:
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html

It can open almost any media file. You can either set it to just open the particular file type used by your camera, or to open anything.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If you view them on the camera, without it being connected to the laptop, do they play normal or too fast?

Will have to get out my manual. Never attempted to watch a video playback on the camera itself. Will let you know. (Now scratching my head....)
