"D5300 video jumps and skips entire time"


US
          

Why when you play videos you've recorded on the D5300 does it skip/jerk/jump through the entire video making it impossible to watch? I've had this issue with multiple cameras from varying makers and would like to finally know WHY it happens and if I can get around it?? Any tips help out

Many video players have an option to drop frames so that the visual keeps up with the audio. This may or may not have an effect in your case. Can you point us to an example?

@Josephk Have you never had this happen? I don't have a video uploaded yo show you. I should verify that the video plays back smooth on camera but once taken off and played on any program on a pc it skips the whole time.

Depending on the size and frame rate you shot in it may not be possible to play it back that fast on the camera. The camera drops frames when it overloads, but it's not as smart as a video playback application on your computer. It's different playing back than recording. The speed of your card may also effect the speed you can play back too.

If it plays back fine on the computer then you'll know for sure.

@pblais Skips when played on my computer, not on the camera. Plays like butter on camera and like a train wreck on computers.

I think I've figured it out! I was using HD at 60p which I assumed was better based on the bigger number...upon doing my research I switched it to 24p and it seems to be playing normally now on the computer.

This can also be computer dependent as well.

I have 3 Apple computers. I ran the same 1080P/60P movie from my D5300 on all 3 computers.

1st a PowerMac with Motorola G5 2.3G dual core processor and 4G of ram, 256 MB video card. The movie jumps and skips badly. Computer is 9 years old.

2nd. 15" Macbook Pro with 2.4 G Intel dual core i5 processor, 4 G ram, 288 MB Intel video. The movie has a very slight skip only noticeable on a fast moving object like a car. Computer is 2 years old.

3rd. Latest 27" iMac with Intel 4 core 3.2G i5, 16G ram, 1 TB Fusion drive, 1024 MB video card. The movie is very smooth with no skips. Computer is 4 months old.

Unless your second machine has wired in RAM you have about the same playback as you newest if you had 8GB Ram

Should never get a computer with 4GB RAM. Between the the system which gets Larger and larger year by year. 4 GB is weak. An Minimum of 8GB. I have 8GB on my MacBook Pro bought Feb - 2011 and some thing are slow

It can be better if you have the horsepower. You are playing pretty big stuff out of the camera. It works the best if you use the 60p to make slow motion segments. Then it really looks smooth. Slowing down 24p won't look as nice even if it works too.

Hi Cassi
Looks like your computer/software is not working properly. It's not neccesearily a hardware problem. This may be a video player issue or a driver problem. I don't know what computer you use. But for example Microsoft Windows Media player has sometimes problems with performance. And it wouldn't even try to play a number of video formats even if you have drivers installed! I thought I can't play 'mov' videos from my old Coolpix, neither '3gp' from cellphones... Until I downloaded another software player (SMPlayer in my case). Now I can play smoothly almost ANY video file I can find.
So - firs try another software video player.
Regards
S.

I agree with S...it's likely your video player.Even a 9 year old Dual Core Mac with 4GB ram and NO video card should be able to play video fine I believe ....providing the Player (Quicktime for .mov format) is up to date (latest version).Windows users should download the K Lite Codec pack to update Windows Media Player, or download VLC Media player, a well regarded and free player.

I agree with Len. all sorts of hardware factors come in to play when playing a video on a computer.
not all videos are created equally! the format of the video is also an important factor. (but up to date software is also very important).
Over the years with many computers if find the processor speed and number of cores has a big impact on videos replay. also speed of RAM and speed of hard disk all come in to play with long videos. short videos should not be a problem for anything (eg a 15 second video should be able to play on almost anything) but now we are able to easily make 20 minute videos some of this is pretty hard on old hardware i7 CPUs handles big videos a lot easier that an i5 CPU (I have both)
By the way you are not damaging the video by playing it when it is erratic and blocky. it will play fine on a more powerful machine.

I use Core 2 Duo with inexpensive nvidia geforce and 2GB RAM for the player. A 6 years old machine. D5100 video plays well. The player uses about 35-45% CPU power for fullscreen playback.
I also tried almost 3 years old Core i3 laptop - no problem.

I'd be surprised if you could run a 60P video on that machine. What were you running?

Well, Len, no surprise here. While my computer can play full hd 25p and 30p videos, it can't play 60p.

Though, it still looks to mee it's not a hardware limitation, rather a player/driver/operating system issue.
I've tried 3 players: SMPlayer, Media Player Classic and View NX2 (Windows Media Player refuses to play MOV files at all).
View NX2 plays only about 1 second or 2 and stops playing video, continuing audio.
The two others have problems mainly with audio (skips, loops, silence). Both have minor problems with video. SMPlayer skips slightly from time to time (1-5 seconds). Media Player Classic shows motion almost perfectly - maybe one skip for 15 seconds, you probably wouldn't notice if you wouldn't have looked for it.

Why I think that it's a software issue? System reports that SMPlayer consumes about 35-50% CPU when playing 60p file. For Media Player Classic (which plays smoother) it's only 5% (FIVE!), and total system CPU load about 5-15%, including internet software, antivirus and of course Media Player Classic playing the video. Almost idle, HDD, fans work slowly. Doesn't seem overloaded at all...

For now, I'm not going to fight it, because my videos are 25p. I've just checked it because of curiosity.
Regards
S.

P.S. As I haven't D5300, I've used samples from:

I checked it because of curiosity as well. I very rarely will shoot a video but I'm curious as to how my computers perform. I haven't used a Windows computer in 10 years. My latest iMac is only a few months old and it handles 60P with no problem. It's a 3.2 GHZ i5 with 16 GB of ram and 1 GB of video ram. It also has a fast fusion drive.
