Erratic playing of VCD in Windows Media Playergreenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread
HELLO VIEWERS ! SUB:- ERRATIC WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER
I HAVE AN AMD ATHLON XP 2000+ PROCESSOR & ASUS A7N266 VM MOTHERBOARD BASED PC WITH 128 MB DDR RAM. WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER VER-7 IS INSTALLED. BUT, I AM UNABLE TO PLAY VCDs PROPERLY WITH WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER AS IT APPEARS TO BE PLAYING IN A FAST-FORWARD MODE, FOR EXAMPLE, A 10-MINUTE LONG MOVIE IS COVERED IN 2 MINUTES OR SO. I HAVE CHECKED THIS WITH ALL SUPPORTED FILE FORMATS, BUT IN VAIN.BUT, I AM ABLE TO PLAY THE SAME MOVIE COMFORTABLY IN XINGMPEG PLAYER.
CAN ANYBODY TELL ME WHAT MAY BE THE REASON & THE POSSIBLE REMEDY?

A couple of things to try:
Upgrade Media Player to whatever version is the latest.
Grab a program like VCDEasy that can strip the RIFF header from the VCD's .DAT files. Try to play the resulting MPG file.
I've seen this problem when the framerate and/or audio is mismatched somehow or is an odd type (like 32K sampling for audio) or someone has encoded a vcd on dvd improperly. Usually, I rip the file down to it's resultant video/audio streams using TMPGEnc and try to fix, or simply re-mux them and resign myself to the fact that I can only play it on the computer because someone else screwed the files up.
