How to Correct Choppy or Broken Up Playback

Postby nico » December 6th, 2017, 1:05 pm

Hi there,

I am working on a simple video installation using:

- Two (2) Mini-mac running quicktime mp4 videos
- Through a modem with Ethernet cables using Array Sync
- And going out in to two projectors via hdmi


The final output of the videos is very choppy and broken up.

Can you please recommend what could be a solution?

What is the best video format while using Array Sync?

Please help!

Thank you so much,

-N

What you are experiencing is most likely a codec issue. ArraySync’s precise frame-accurate synchronization won’t work with a high-compression distribution codec such as H.264. Instead you’ll want to use a production codec, which will result in larger files but much smoother playback and sync. Most people have the best results using MJPEG as your codec. Give that a shot!
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.
