720p video skips on EVO
All my recorded videos seem to skip on my Evo during playback, usually a couple times here and there. They also skip when playing them on my PC after I have copied them to it. Any ideas?
I also noticed the format is 3GPP on my SD card and my desktop. I thought it was MPEG4?
Update : Fixed.. Figured out that the Auto "Flicker Adjustment" does not work to well. Set it to 60hz under the settings and choppy playback is gone.

It drives me crazy that HTC includes a feature you really can't use properly. The skipping is a big problem, surely they would have figured that people would complain. Oh wait, HTC, like many other manufacturers, continue to put in paltry batteries that can barely make it thru the day. Grrr....

I ran a series of test shooting the same scene, starting static and then panning right. The 720p is noticeably the cleanest looking video but any setting lower, either in size or encoding, produces smoother motion. You lose size and quality, but the motion is much smoother. The 720p produces several artifacts in my test. First is a general skipping of the video, so instead of 30 fps, you get more like 20fps. This is noticeable most of the time. Then you get the large skips, where it pauses for several frames and then skips. Finally, I get video aberrations, where the encoding gets whacky and the image distorts. This is the rarest occurrence.

I have a 16gb class 2 card and I have no issues with recording or playback. Everything plays back nice and smooth
