637g errors while seeking

The stutter (skipped frames during playback) problem I mentioned with 635e and IPP decoding seems to be fixed, so I set about editing some transport files I have that contain MPEG-2.

I manually edit files by hopping through the files at 10 second intervals rather than rely on ad detective. This involves some stepping back and forth and eventual single frame steps to locate the cur point. When IPP is enabled VR frequently recommends that I run a quick stream fix on the source even though the source itself is perfectly clean. Turning off IPP allows the files to be edited without problem. It is not restricted to any particular file I have. The problem can be reproduced with all of them but not consistently.

DrP, Can you try a couple of things:

1) First turn IPP back on.

2) Load your file, and if on the view menu, Display NTSC captions is enabled, turn it off. I had one situation which gave me this same behavior when captions were being displayed in IPP.

3) If #2, doesn't work, can we reset the registry? Easiest way to do this is to create a file, "VRD_REGISTRY.INI" in your installation folder. Put one line in the file:

"a=TVS_637" (no quotes).

4) Restart videoredo. Then all settings will point to the new registry location, if this fixes things, when we would appreciate a .reg copy of your original VideoReDo registry settings.

5) You can restore everything back to your original settings by deleting the .ini file.

Thanks

My recordings are Australian where the captions are delivered via the teletext PID. I'm not sure if the NTSC caption option applies but I'll turn it off anyway.

The seek error appears randomly so it might take a while before I get back to this post with more information.

.....
Suprisingly, it didn't take long to rear its head again.

With caption display off I was able to get the problem to happen so I set VR to use the alternate registry location. Unfortunately I was able to provoke the problem there too. I've tried to define a way in which I can reliably provoke it, but no luck so far. It comes and goes seemingly at random. One open of a file will have problems, the next few opens of the same file won't.

Could you try this,
Tools > Options > Playback devices > Uncheck Deinterlace On

Tools > Shift key > Options > Manual Parameter Settings > 57. Custom Display Height change to 576 (for PAL countries)

@DrP, Can you turn off thumbnails (F11) and reproduce the problem? The main video window and the thumbnails operate somewhat independently so with TNs off, we will isolate to must the main video.

Also, what are your systems specs? CPU type, speed and OS.

Turning off thumbnails doesn't seem to have made any difference.

Still problem when switching to preview mode

Hi,
as I already posted for previous beta releases of VRD4, if I switch in preview mode from all my mpeg2 video files, program hangs or after a while reports "problem while seeking".
If I turn off .72 option (MPEG2 display uses IPP decoder set to false), no more problems.
As suggested I started from scratch putting the .ini file in the installation directory.

My system is a i7-860 running on XP SP3.

Many thanks for Your support

We both receive transmissions from Oz transmitters. I've tried to replicate the problems you have seen but so far with no luck.

If there is some factor you or Dan thinks is in play I'm happy test and evaluate

Is the .ini pointing to an area that is unique for 637 and wasn't used with 635?

Can you post the Tools>Show Program Info for a typical file?

Thanks.

Hi,
what do you mean with "pointing to an area that is unique for 637 .." ?

After creation of the .ini file, VRD4 started again with the setup wizard.

Since I have a second partition on my HD with Windows 7 64, I tried same beta release of VRD4, same mpg files, same S->T settings (IPP turned on for MPEG" displays) and all is working fine !
So 2 options:
- something wrong with latest VRD4 beta builds AND WinXP SP3 (problem since introduction of IPP)
- some inteferences with installed programs on my XP SP3 partition

Here the infos of one .mpg file
