Get a better laptop.
thanks for your helpfull answer. My LTP is a P4, 3.2 MHz with 4 GB Ram. DivX plays the recorded videos perfectly. CS4 editing works fine, but simple things are more complicate.
Don't worry stay happy with your view of things, JPB
Thanks for the additional info. The laptop is underpowered for HDV, it does not even meet minimum requirements, but good enough for DivX. So either play the clips on this laptop, or if you want to capture/edit with CS4, get something more up to date.
please read the question again and answer only to the question:
no need of editing.
the transfert(capture) from tape to hd is well working with PPR or HDSplit
the review of the captured mpg is well working with Divx Player, Picassa Player or media Player, no problem
What I'm asking for, is a simple viewer on my old underpowered PC (but so resistent in the dessert with -20 to +45 degrees) in order to view the recorded tape before I capture them. Just to see the recorded video on a bigger screen (The LTP is installed in my car).
Thats it, regards, JPB
