I have a bunch of saved video files from my Go Pro knockoff cameras which when I play the video file, it only plays for 2 or 3 seconds and the progress bar across the video screen acts as if that's the entire video. But the file size is anywhere from 1GB to 1.3 GB and the file length is typically 10 minutes of video recording.
The file type is AVI.
My knowledge of videos and these systems is minimal.
Some of the video files play normally. Many do not.
Any ideas why with such a large file, its only playing for 2 seconds as if that is the entire video, when the actual file is much larger?
Is this a setting issue or something I could easily change? I have videos I would like to upload to Youtube, but with this issue affecting probably 8 out of 10 videos I have saved, its causing me trouble. Of the 60 video files I have saved, I can play maybe 8 or 10 them as they should and the rest all give me the same response. The image shows and when I click play, the progress bar flashes across the bottom of the video and in 2 seconds, the video stops as if it is done.
I had downloaded a video editing program last year called NCH Videopad, and I am wondering if that somehow is causing the issue. The video files are all stored on my laptop C drive.....
Any ideas or suggestions?
I would like to record several new videos but I don't want to spend the time recording if the files don't play. By the way, I have two different Go Pro knock off cameras and it doesn't seem to matter which camera recorded the video. Also, the files all played normally in the past. So I have no idea what I changed to cause this issue.....
Thanks in advance for any help in restoring these files to usefulness.............There are some really good snow plowing videos and also mowing through brush taller than the cab of the tractor I would like to post.
