Not able to fix playback hangups & stutters

Post by Lincon » Mon May 06, 2019 9:10 am

Hello everyone,,
Playing back my original video (Canon mini-DVD, copied to my HD) hangs and stutters, then proceeds after a few seconds. This keeps up through 4 or 5 hangs, then the video completes. I have heard that HandBrake can improve the playback. What settings do I make to fix it? I can't find the original miniDVD to see if the playback is the same on it.

HandBrake version 1.1.2

Windows 7 Professional

I have heard that HandBrake can improve the playback.
HandBrake converts to common formats and can be configured to use features of the target container and codecs to make the output playable on a wide variety of players. HandBrake can fix some minor A/V synchronization issues, but generally, HandBrake does not fix problems with the source file. Garbage in garbage out.
