    I wonder if anyone else uses the video setting, in my case using an XE2?

    I find that the video plays back ok in the camera but when I play it back on my computer (64bit Win7) it jumps.

    The file type is .MOV so I've installed the latest version of Quick Time but the fault remains, also stutters in Win Media Player.

    I know that the Video capability of the XE2 is not very highly regarded and I see it as a bonus feature on top of the excellent photographics. We're about to go on holiday and if it works properly it saves me having to take another gadget/charger/cables.

    Anyone done much with video on the X series?

    Thanks.

    OK, I’ve got to the bottom of this, basically it’s the graphics card is not up to the task, my computer is about 5 or 6 years old.

    I’ve tested the 4 file types, it can handle the 1080/30fps and 720/30fps and the 720/60fps files but not the 1080/60fps.

    Tested on my movie server, which has an HDMI graphics card, all 4 file types played without any problem.

    Thanks for this, by the way. I've had the same issue here and there.
