Copy one of these video's from the ext hdd to the internal hdd.
Play the video from the internal hdd.
So recently I have been watching videos from my external harddrive with no problems, but today all of my videos have had the same problem, randomly the video will become pixelated, frozen frames, all while the audio continues normally. I suspect it could be because my friend disconnected my harddrive last night without a safe eject and while the video was still playing, but I am not sure. I am using a seagate harddrive and my computer runs off of windows 10. I had previously read that i could raise the 'file catching (ms) number in VLC and that could fix it but i had no success, and preferably I would like to use the default windows Film & tv player. help will be greatly appreciated
