I am trying to convert analogue VHS video casettes to digital MPEG2 video in order to make a DVD. Unfortunately I have a frames dropping problem.
If I capture on a low resolution (350…) I have almost no frame-loss. But if I’m capturing on a higher resolution I have a frame-loss of 50% and even more sometime.
I have searched the internet to find a solution to this problem. I have changed some hardware like changing the harddisk’s channels etc… I have a separate disc dedicated to capture.
The disks are defragmented and nothing else is running on it. When capture is in progress I close down all applications including Norton. I allow no preview of the picture. I have tried to capture with different software Pinnacle Studio 8 + 9, Windows Movie maker, Ulead products, VirtualDub, Windows Media Encoder, iuVCR along with Huffyuv compression etc…
But nothing helps, the problem of 50% frame-loss remains. This is very frustrating…
I think maybe there is a hardware device malfunctioning but which one? I am desparate.
Who can help me, please? Any help is welcome.
Thanks a lot.
