That is normal as it is only a snippet of the original file that is stored on the camera. When you have the card in your computer and copy the files over, they should play ok. The only ones that might not, are ones that are higher resolution than your system can handle.

The higher the resolution you film in the crappier the ST flash playback looks. It's already only 720p and that Android video engine ain't helping. I do recall it not being so bad originally when I jumped in last May.

Hi , DO NOT judge your video by the playback on the ST -16 , Take the card out of the Camera and put it in a good puter with at least a 2 Gig dedicated video card , use VLC or Cyberlink to play back , the 3+ takes amazing vids !

Hey guys, same issue here. This past Monday I FINALLY got my TH back after a month and a half of getting repaired at KAV. I got the chance to fly earlier and the playback on st16 was just like you guys are describing being all jerky and blocky. When I put the sd card from the cgo in the st16 it plys fine. It didn't do this before I sent it to get repaired but after checking the firmware version, they must have updated it when it was in for repair. Most definitely seems to me that's one of the downfalls of the latest update. Not really a huge issue seeing it only seems to be the playback on the st16. Hope they fix it thou especially after trying to show some friends the video and not knowing it was going to play like it did! Aww well, atleast I
FINALLY got her back and she's flying great!

Check your video resolution. The higher you shoot the the lesser the quality of playback from the St only. Your capture on the card should be fine.

The ST-16 records and plays back only in 720p, regardless of what the video was recorded at. The video/camera settings recording resolution has no impact on ST-16 play back.
