Any way to make choppy video files un-choppy?

Hello there.

So I have a few home-recorded videos of sentimental value I would like to keep, but they are choppy to the point that they're impossible to watch. It's pretty much like this: Start video>picture freezes for 2 secs>continues for 1 sec>picture freezes for 2 secs>continues for 2 secs>picture freezes for 1 sec and so on. Sound isn't choppy, only the video. They are in FLV format, I tried converting just for fun and it made no difference.

I have a pretty powerful gaming rig so no hardware issues; it's the recording. The camera has no problems recording on low resolution and fps but as soon as I go up on the settings, videos get choppy like that.

Any software out there to "even out" the freezes and make the video fluid? Some help would be very much appreciated!

  1. My old gaming machine was unable to handle my camcorder videos. It did the same thing you are experiencing.
    I bought a new machine capable of editing HiDef files.

    What I did use that worked well to re-code videos was SUPER ©. A pretty nice converter.

    To elaborate a little on my machine:

    i7-3820, ASUS Radeon HD 7970, ASUS Sabertooth X79, Intel 520 Series 180GB, 2x Corsair XMS3 1866MHz Vengeance 8GB

    SUPER sounds like something I should try, thank you. Will post after whatever results I get with this!
