Hi, I have a sony dcr hc-30 mini dv. When I am capturing video, it skips every second, almost exactly every second. I have 2.4 ghz quard core, 4 gigs of ram and a xfx 8800 gtx video card, so I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with computer speed. I just recently started having this problem. Video captures fine with the same camcorder on my old computer, so it has something to do with this comp..
A few clues.. When using windows movie maker, the preview window doesn't show it skipping, but when I play the captured video, it skips. When I am using sony vegas 6 it skips in the preview window and captured footage. Confusing..
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
I've uploaded a video on youtube, here's the link:
Also notice the bad distortion, which I just realized when capturing the video.
