playhead won't play where it's suppose to play

Feb 15, 2012 5:55 PM

Hello EVerybody,

I have a problem with the audios that I am trying to match with the video. Sometimes while editing, the playhea just won't play where it's suppose to play. I think there is bugs or something about the software. Have any one run into this problem before. I need help. Thanks

    I see zero information for anyone to try and help... lots of questions to answer about your computer, your project and the files you are using

    What CODEC is INSIDE that file? http://forums.adobe.com/thread/440037

    .

    Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing

    .

    For PC http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ or http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en

    For Mac http://mediainfo.massanti.com/

    .

    Once you know exactly what it is you are editing, report back with that information... and your project setting, and if there is a red line above the video in the timeline, which indicates a mismatch between video and project

    >videos were rip from dvds

     

    What codec were they ripped to?

     

    Go back to my reply #1 for how to find that information

     

    Also... unless the Mac version is VERY different than the Win version, PPro CS5 will directly work with VOB files... but read the notes about that in my previous link

    The videos were rip from dvds

     

    You're really not allowed to edit that content.  Stick with using original media from a supported camera.  Things should work fine then.
