The camcorder is obviously optimised to play those 1080 60p files properly and even a cheap computer can be optimised to play the files. On my 2 year old 2.4Ghz laptop with a Core2Duo processor, I got smooth motion playing back 1080 60p using Splash or Windows Media. If you were to use VLC on that computer, the results would be completely unacceptable. Again, some people PC's are optimised differently. Also when it came to editing on Nero or Premiere CS5, the preview screen was never smooth but when I tried Video Redo, I got perfect motion in that NLE.
That post makes it sound like some of us are deliberately lying including me when it is her who is misleading people even without knowing it. Just because she 's not getting good results, everybody who are, are lying? I requested for her to post a couple of brand new native clips for me to use them in a demonstration to prove it but she never did. Why didn't she?
I try to help people as much as I can when it comes to playback issues. The same thing happened when HDV first came out and then AVCHD, I mean I still remember when people used to complain about the playback issues when the HC1 was still very popular and I also tried to help as much as I could back then. I do wish we didn't have as much issues with people who have decent machines.
For HDV, I used to recommend DivX and then when AVCHD came out I used to recommend CoreAVC. This remind me that people should try CoreAVC and see if it will help.
