Hi,

Today I went out to try making some video's with my E90. I choose the H.265 because of the better compression. At home, I wanted to play the videos, but none of the players can play the files. I tried "films&TV", windowd media player, VLC and Leawo Blue Ray player (which should be a good one).

They open the files, but only an extreme jiggerish video come out.

Using a new Samsung Pro Plus 64 GB SD card. So that should not be the problem.

Any of you already had that problem?

Thanks for your help!

A lot of the time if the video has artifacting or looks like jiggerish as you said, it is most likely your system can not handle the playback, especially if you shot in 4K. Try shooting in a low resolution to see if the video is viewable. If it is you know that your system is the problem.

Thanks. I tried it on a MS Surface Pro 4 with an Intel HD Iris 540 graphics card (Intel core i7, 16 gb RAM) if that helps.

UPDATE: seems that the graphics card performs VERY POORLY... :-(

That is always going to be a problem with tech. You either have a bottle neck with the CPU or the graphics card.

Have you done a recording at a lower resolution yet?

h.264 at 60fps and 4K is OK. it seems to be the H.265 compression...

You may need a codec installed for the h.265 to get proper playback.

edit: links with more info



From what the charts on the wiki show, the Iris 540 GPU should have hardware encode/decode of h.265 and may just need the free codec installed.

sorry, was already installed, so it didn't solve the problem. I'll retry a new set of videos soon.
