Problem Solving: No delay playing mts file on Popcorn Hour A-210
Stream and Play AVCHD from NAS to Popcorn Hour without delay
Get rid of video glitching problem from tsmuxer after joining
I purchased Sony CX700 for shooting family videos. When looking into the files, there are a lot of files with different folders. I got multiple files when taking the mother's day video, as I clicked the pause button on camcorder. I plugged the SD card to Popcorn Hour A-210, and it plays pretty good, expect that there is about 4-second delay when it goes to another clip.
I first used tsmuxer to join a few clips at around 2GB, and put to my Netgear as NAS, and played with Popcorn Hour. But I find the video glitches and freezes. I was recommended to use Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac on my iMac running Leopard with Intel processor. It really helps me get rid of video glitching problem in the joined movie. What I do is import the mts files from camcorder, drag and drop the files for the same occasion, and then the large file is ready.
