Playback issue after export: shown duration & framerate

Jan 27, 2013 9:15 AM

I have playback issues after exporting my videos: the video runs fine but I can't scroll in the movie (whatever player I use) because the duration is totally wrong. When I check the properties I can see that the frame rate is something very low, which matches the crazy durations (several hours/days). Is it like a header issue? The video in itself seems fine.



I export a 12min47sec video at 25fps  (I use AVCHD 1080p 25fps mp4 - the source is same resolution, same fps)

Playback will show 47hours56min06sec if I check the framerate I read: 0.11fps   but it will still play fine


So far I'm using a different software to re-export the movie and it works fine after that, but it's kind of a waste of time...


Thank you for your time

    Welcome to the forum.


    What are the full specs. of you Export/Share/Publish settings?


    Also, in your Timeline, if you hit the End key (might need to be Fn+End on some Macs), where does the CTI (Current Time Indicator) go - to the desired end of Clips, or way beyond?


    Good luck,

    What player is this? It is the player that "reads" the information from the file and displays it accordingly. If the player makes a mistake, this is what you will get. What happens if you bring the exported clip back into Premiere Elements and play it from within PrE11?


    When you seek to a speciic point, it is the Player that is responsible for getting the frame there. So try a different playback application (vlc or quicktime player for example)

    Thank you for the info and the screen-caps.


    Along with VDOSurfer's suggestions, I would also run the output file through MediaInfo,, a great, free file info utility, to see what it says about the file's properties. I find that for many formats, it does a better job, than the oft recommended G-Spot.


    Good luck,
