    Survivability of our Exe/MPEG audio visuals

    Jose I am certainly no expert but had thought that VLC was the leader so certainly will now checkout Zoom. Thankyou again, this time for that suggestion. George

    Survivability of our Exe/MPEG audio visuals

    Jill The Clip was on my Desktop Computer and where it has been since transferred from the Camera. But panic is over. Phew! As a result of yours and Jose's comments, having found that the Clip does play perfectly in Windows Media Player, I then looked at VLC and found there was an Update available. This has literally just been downloaded and installed and now the same clip plays perfectly in VLC. So for now I can rest in the knowledge, for now at least, that my audio visuals will be available to be viewed by our grandchildren in the years to come. George

    Survivability of our Exe/MPEG audio visuals

    Jose, Brilliant. Something I never even considered. Played the same sequence this time using Windows Media Player and it played perfectly. So it looks like my concerns over longevity may not be so critical after all. Many thanks for that. But to answer your question, this Clip had been transferred in November 2014 and I still use this camera in the same way. Not sure what you want from MediaInfo, but here below is some Info. George Format : MPEG-4 Format profile : QuickTime Codec ID : qt 2005.03 (qt ) File size : 11.2 MiB Duration : 42 s 633 ms Overall bit rate : 2 197 kb/s Encoded date : UTC 2014-11-07 19:28:40 Tagged date : UTC 2014-11-07 19:28:40 Writing library : Apple QuickTime Video ID : 1 Format : MPEG-4 Visual Format profile : Advanced Simple@L3 Format settings : BVOP Format settings, BVOP : Yes Format settings, QPel : No Format settings, GMC : No warppoints Format settings, Matrix : Default (H.263) Codec ID : mp4v-20 Duration : 42 s 633 ms Bit rate : 1 490 kb/s Width : 640 pixels Height : 480 pixels Display aspect ratio : 4:3 Frame rate mode : Constant
  4. Not directly related to P2E, I have just encountered an issue with playback of a short MOV. format clip (42secs) within VLC. Transferred from my Camera a few years back, there had been no previous signs of any deterioration so it has gone from nothing to this! (A screenshot is below and one can see the black degradation on the floor and walls and this is the same throughout the Clip.) It is though as a result of seeing this that I have started to wonder and be concerned about the survivability of my exe/mpeg audio visuals and the enabling of our children and grandchildren to view in the years to come. Could this be just an issue with the MOV format, VLC, or this particular video clip, but if not, how should we be saving our audio visual memories in order that they can definitely be viewed in future years?

    New Advertising Idea...

    Although not on Facebook, I did try both links and they did work for me. George

    New Advertising Idea...

    This has certainly caught my imagination and I have already watched it a number of times. I actually like that it is 'busy'. (Did not notice the two short videos playing on first watching.) As for suggestions. I am not a Facebook person but at this stage could not see any other reference at this stage to Winsoft or any other avenue that I could find out more about the program and it's possibilities? Sorry Lin, but I could then envisage a series of these short promotionals. I would think that if I had come across the program as a complete beginner then I would want to complete my first attempt as quick as possible so a further reference and links to the availability of helpful advice is what I would be looking for. On a complete tangent. I recall reading a few days ago on the Forum a posting about the next version. Seem to recall something about Slide Styles to be in themes and a suggestion of some being available to purchase? This would certainly be one that I would look at. George
  7. Many thanks Jill, Dave & Igor for help and explanation. I guess it must have been just habit and thinking that 'exe' is what you would normally export a completed project to, and so carried on. Really glad though I have had a couple of issues this week and that the Forum has helped me solve both and helped me when going forward. Many Thanks George
  8. Dave, Thankyou for that link. I did first search the Manual, honest, but was looking for how to export as MP4 and obviously did not see this link. Can't wait now to try this out. Thankyou. George
  9. Jill An interesting solution. I must admit that I do use VLC on the Desktop computer for playback of video but then on the Desktop, I don't really have a problem. But then thinking of your potential solution, I looked again at a P2E project but cannot see anyway to export the file as a MP4 file. Is there? Or have you found a way to convert the exe file to MP4? George
  10. I just wish to raise an issue that I know has been posted before but unaware a solution has been found other than the suggestion to upgrade the graphics card. Okay if one is using one’s own laptop but what if one uses someone else's computer/ laptop? All my audio visuals are put together on a relatively new Desktop Computer where playback has been no problem. However when I play one that includes video on my (Windows 10) laptop, normally the video playback judders so I cannot show any to friends or family via my laptop that include video. If this upgrading of a graphics card should still be the suggested solution, two instances have happened to me in the last week that have made me wonder whether there could be another way and so just wish to ask a general question. First, this week we visited family and I took a flashdrive with me containing my audio visuals and whilst there took a chance, played one (admittedly containing a lengthy video clip) back on their laptop. Sadly playback was juddery. So if my assumption to the possible solution is upgrading the graphics card is correct, you would not be able to use anyone else’s laptop if video is included in the audio visual on the offchance there will be a problem on playback? But then this week, in another Forum posting and with something totally different, because of the size of my png images added via O&A, although they appeared in the mini player they did not appear when viewing playback in full screen. Reduce the png image size and everything appeared as expected. So could this also be a possibility as a solution with the size of the video file, in order to avoid the possibility of juddery playback on a laptop, any laptop? Now back home, out of interest I have looked again at this, admittedly lengthy, video clip seen over the weekend, in MediaInfo and see that it’s size is 1920 x 1080 & 25fps. No idea if that is large or small for a video file or too large for P2E. Could there be though some correlation then, like the png image experienced last week, and one needs somehow to reduce video file size down to a particular size before using in a P2E project? PS – All video was ‘converted’ before adding to a project. George
  11. Igor, Yes, as you suggested, I did, well it appears it was sent, a link to a Google Dive upload by personal message. The potato png that was not working in full screen in the original attempt, I have just checked was 4320 x 3240 pixels. As Jill suggested, I used my photo editor to reduce the size (to 1024 x 768), just did a re-save and so it is the reduced size image that is saved within the Project File in order that original images within the a/v were just overwritten. George
  12. Igor I have just tried via Google Drive and just sent you a link. George

    Still struggling with my smart phone that our daughter bought us as a present at Christmas. Never used google drive before so hope this works.

  14. Jill Brilliant. Thankyou. I automatically reduce the image sizes of slides used but did not even give it a thought to also ensuring that the png sizes were also smaller. It worked and something else learnt. Many Thanks George
  15. Igor I have just sent you a zipped file with the final save to get it within the upload limits. Hope that you can still view. George .
