It is a computer issue - I have had back and forth issues - good playback after reinstall of Flip software and bad after Windows Media updates. Looks like a Computer performance/Codec issue - camera playback via HDMI is fine. HD is higher data bandwidth and could be putting a strain on even a mid range computer like my own.

See the discussion "Flip Not Fitting in Macbook USB." There are a lot of people facing the same problem. I had a little bit of a jerky problem on something I shot outside. I thought mine might be due to the fact that I had zoomed in and out. I need to shoot more video to really figure out what the problem is. Perhaps yours had to do with zooming?

no I think it is my laptop. I bought a usb hub for my desktop and the same video plays great on it. the laptop is only a year old and is a entertainment dv6700 from hp so it should play it back. I will not be keeping this Flip Mino.

I too am having the same issue. When I playback the videos in large or fullscreen mode, it's jerky. In small mode, it's fine. I can't get Flip to respond to my email and can't get through on the phone, so I might be returning this one.

Geologist is correct, I think. It is a processing power issue. I have an old single-core Pentium 2.4GHz and no matter which player I try, I get stopping and starting when playing back.

Strangely enough, I've had much better results by uploading the videos to the FlipShare website and playing them from there! I guess they must be compressing them somehow, which is ordinarily a bad thing but in this case allows you to see them without the "stuttering" in the playback.

yes, i had this problem. i noticed that the playback looked fine on the camera, but when i transferred to my computer, it was jerky. turns out the problem was the kind of application I was using to view it. I found the free GOM player, and this solved the problem nicely.
