For the new Quicktime embedded player I have not written the Javascript to do full screen yet. Downloading the HD file might be a better choice for full screen.

Video Playback

I have downloaded the VLC Player as recommended here but playback still not working correctly. Plays file but very distorted and notchy. Are there settings in VLC to tweak to make it work with these files?
Windows Xp
HP Pavillion A1430n
3800+ AMD Atholon 64 duel cor processor
1GB memory
NVIDIA Geforce 6150LE

Note: Playback on site RR Site works fine but in small screen. I'm trying to get full screen to work on another player. Downloaded new Quicktime, didn't work, download VLC, didn't work.

Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, experience usually comes from bad judgment.

For some reason I cannot download the Quicktime player to IE so I downloaded the Firefox browser and the VLC player and the RR vids. are playing perfectly for me now.

Honestly, I wish Mark had left it the way it use to be, or kept the original file option as a third choice to view from.

Us older guys don't like change.

Since the videos were converted to MP4 they are running very badly. It doesn't matter if I use VLC or quicktime. On 2 PCs all the videos did not play well.

H.264 MP4 and HD Choppy Playback

More insight on the larger HD video files and playback. On a 2-1/2 year old RR office computer the larger HD videos were playing back choppy with QT and VLC. The computer's out of date Nero 7 Showtime gave an error. So I downloaded the latest Nero 7 update and now all is perfect. rrTV HD video playback on this older computer is 100% solid when viewing with Nero Showtime.

I also suggest updating your video card and audio card drivers.

Once you get this figured out, rrTV's crisp high quality 60P HD video is as good as it gets.

rrTV Low Def iPhone Video?

Please try this third type of encode format. It's for the iPhone and other older computers that experience choppy playback with SD or HD rrTV video files.

Please try again here.

The file sizes are larger than SD but less CPU intensive. Please give it a try and Post Reply back with feedback.

Works very good here, looks great. Using macbook pro 2.3GHz and Quicktime. It's a bit small though but at 60fps I can see larger might not be an option if you want to support a wide range of players and computers.

This H.264 codec really adds ALOT of playback quality - the absence of all the weird artifacts that were introduced by WMV is a welcome change

BTW, for you linux geeks out there:
I watch most of my RR stuff on a plasma/LCD TV(s) these days - the videos are downloaded to a linux box, and streamed via the excellent open source product, streambaby, to my TiVoHDs... The IRCHA stuff is stunning in 1080p on a 46" LCD... This is the only way "to fly"

First try the less taxing LD link...

http://runryder.com/helicopter/rrTV...?script=LD-TEST (only two files so far)

Next try the VLC media player.

H.264 Players for rrTV 720-60P HD MP4 Video
Nero ShowTime - Best
VLC media player - Good (free)
Apple Quicktime - OK
Abobe Flash - Poor
Silverlight 3 - Poor

hate the new videos, they don't look as clear as the older hd ones and they seem to give problems. I have nero showtime 9, vlc, quicktime, and they all are hit or or miss, dual core computer, 4 gig of ram and 1 gig video card. i'd rather have the slightly bigger files and imho better quality that the other files had.

Hands down the new MP4 files are far superior when you get things figured out. There is no turning back to WMV. There are several issues regarding WMV production that are show stoppers. We have to move forward.

Even Microsoft is in the process of moving to H.264.

Not to be argumentative, but Mark is right. The compression quality and visual quality is far better. I have a new top of the line, flagship Apple iMac and the quality is superb. As good as anything out there. It is just a matter of getting the right player or setting for it right.

For Apple people it is seamless. Although it works great on my 5 year old Dell Inspiron 700M laptop running XP Service Pack 3 too, so... Every once in a while it jumps for a second, but that is the ancient machine's fault. Everything is slow on it.

Teething pains Mark, nothing but teething pains.

MP4 files maybe far superior but if there not a decent player to watch them without a choppy picture, what's the point.

IMHO, Mark has taken a step backward forcing everyone to download and install new software that's marginal at best.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

The quality is not marginal for anyone except those running base computers. Mark eventually has to draw a line in the sand if he wants to compete with other websites with cutting edge quality video.

I have no connection to RR, just plain and simple.

my computer is far from a base computer and it doesn't struggle to play them it almost seems more of a codec type issue. I even installed the best software that was recommended by mark and still have issues now and then and when it does play smooth it looks more pixely than his previous wmv hd files.

just an update I have nero showtime playing them smoothly now, make sure you uninstall any other codecs like the combined community codec. I still don't think it's any clearer than the older wmv files.
