Digital camcorder streaming quality lost
Posted 07 May 2005 - 09:10 PM
Everything was fine and all until I noticed this last April how absolutely LOW the streaming quality got. I wish I could send a screenshot of how bad it is now, but my computer won't let me copy any video-related medias on here, it always shows up as pitch black.
Anyways, to make a long story short, I made absolutely no settings changes on my computer, nor my digital camcorder. And the quality of the camera used to be absolutely unbelievable it was crisp, sharp, clean. Now it doesn't matter if I am streaming live video via webcam, capturing video in a video editing program, or simply streaming video off the cassette and importing it onto my computer. Now it shows up half gray and all megapixely, it's like the Photoshop "Mosaic Filter" applied 4 times over.
Anyone have any hints as to what the hell is going on with it? The thing is brand new practically, I have kept it in prestigous condition. It has not been dropped, etc.

Does the camera have a little screen on it? (google isnt working, I cant find out myself)
If so, is the quality good there?

In MSN for example, the webcam quality is sh*t now; it's the exact same for Windows Movie Maker; I know it's not the programs - it's definately the streaming.
The tapes shouldn't make a difference either, they play perfect on the camcorder, which has an LCD as well as a viewfinder you can both watch movies in. They play 100% crisp and clear on the camcorder and on TV A/V hookups, but when I stream it to my computer (whether it be live, like a webcam; or I am just importing some footage) the quality is absolutely horrendous.

|Try reinstalling camcoder drivers and proggie.|
Done that about 5 times
Maybe I should just take it back to the store.
I wonder if that sh*tty ''Wal Mart'' place will let you exchange things you've owned for 90+ days?
