A family friend taped an event for us and burned it to DVD. I think they must've overlooked something, because every minute or so the video halts for about half a second. (Maybe an index wasn't built properly?)
I've copied the files to my HD and they do the same thing from there, so it's not a hardware or media problem.
Unfortunately, there's no practical way for me to get the original tape (or a camera to play it on), or I'd just re-convert it.
Can you suggest some software and methods I could try to fix the files so I can re-burn them?
I haven't done any DVD editing in particular---but I've done some general computer video (DivX, etc.) and am generally geeky, so I'm not afraid to try stuff. Thanks for your help!
