You can't seamlessly loop a clip that wasn't designed to loop. Some suggestions below, but all require video editing software. No plugin for a player that I know of. Option 1: Clip has a distinctive/necessary beginning & end that have to be seen, or has audio/narration that cannot be edited or shortened The best option in this case would be to edit the ...

With consumer targeted software, there is less of a standard of how to do things. For professional software, there are pretty standardized workflows that editors follow and so tools are pretty similar. For beginner software, while the basic concepts are still similar, the way in which they simplify them is not. The end results that are possible are still ...

I like to think of alternate ways to do things, so here are a few. One variation of the split screen is a picture-in-picture layout, where Caller B is in a small (often rectangular) box overlaid on the main shot of Caller A. Another variation of the split screen is a "cloudy" picture-in-picture, where Caller B appears as a cloud-shaped image with fuzzy ...

"Raw" ususally refers to uncompressed video (though this is technically wrong), meaning you probably have a very large file. Rendering is the process of re-encoding the video using another codec, usually to reduce file-size while maintaining a decent enough video quality. The reason that .mp4-files with the H264-codec are widely used is that they offer a ...

Can Samsung TV Play MP4? From Samsung official website, we clearly know that Samsung TV is only compatible with MP4 in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video codec and AAC audio codec. However, MP4 is a container format which contains various kinds of video and audio codecs. Once the MP4 files can't meet the requirement of Samsung TV input format, you'll get into trouble ...

There are ways to transfer projects between different video editing programs, but they are very limited. Take a look at my answer here; this question is about transfering projects between different versions of Premiere Pro, but the answer is basically the same. You can export a project as an Edit Decision List (EDL), however this will only contain the ...

I used to get stuck with this problem. I finally solved it by changing the "video playback settings" from "the sequence settings" in the "sequence" menu. The default resolution is 1920 x 1080. I changed it to 640 x 360, and after that playback was always 100% smooth, even while using a mixture of .mts and .mvi full HD files, with contrast and brightness ...

Most prosumer-level (or higher) video editing software has monitor panels which show you information about color distribution, luminace, levels and the likes. Premiere Pro for example offers a range of reference monitors. Contrary to photo editing, you can't get one measurement of those parameters for the entire video, because they of course vary from ...

Based on neuhaus' comment, I've confirmed that the Foscam uses MJPEG compression. Thus it's clear how a brighter (hence more detailed) scene would generate higher bit rates by repeatedly sending complete full frames. I thought that it would be smarter than that.

Our eyes and brains are more sensitive to data in the bright areas so compression schemes generally throw out more of the data in the dark areas. If the video is mostly dark, then it compresses very well because they can throw out more data and you don't notice. But when it's bright (assuming it's not overexposed), less data can be crunched down without you ...

If you don't need the interview to be conveyed verbatim, you can have two characters discussing (or arguing about) points from the article. The people discussing the article could even be the hero and heroine, without having them read it aloud verbatim. "Did you really say that?" "I think the author took that out of context. What I meant was ______."

The issue could be primarily technical or mainly aesthetic. Assuming that the clip is designed to be loopable, it's a technical issue. But if you edit two copies of the clip end-to-start and the transition still looks bad, it's more aesthetic. On the technical side, I've had success with Windows Media Player looping WMV and FLV clips. This depends somewhat ...

I upvoted mc01's answer. But I also want to suggest a couple of alternatives (which is something I do a lot on this forum!). If possible, you could shoot a new ending and beginning that utilize the skip/jump. It could be a gunshot or part of a quick earthquake. Or a character could mention that there might be a power outage, or a ripple in the space-time ...
