Why Does VideoPad Preview Play in Slow Motion

by Fcarbone66 / December 20, 2012 10:40 PM PST

When I play the selected clip in the preview window the audio plays at normal speed but the video plays in slow motion. I checked the video speed effect and it's set at 100. My system is an Asus laptop purchaced in 2009. i5 processor 2430M CPU @ 2.40 GHz, Windows 7 Home Premium, 500GB Storage, 6.0GB RAM, 64 bit operating system. The video I'm trying to edit is 1080p from a Sony Cybershot. Could it be that my system is not able to handle the HD video? Does this mean I'm out of luck trying to edit video on this machine? Or is there something I'm missing in the software?

Should be good enough.

I had this happen to me as well.

The only I could figure was that my older XP system was trying to update the screen grabs on the 'video' line.
If I zoomed out so the full video was showing, it played just fine.
