Play DJI Mavic 2 Pro 4K Video with VLC http://www.video-pedia.com/2018/09/06/play-mavic-2-pro-4k-with-vlc/ http://www.video-pedia.com/2018/09/06/play-mavic-2-pro-4k-with-vlc/#comments Thu, 06 Sep 2018 08:16:26 +0000 http://www.video-pedia.com/?p=8809 Continue Reading →]]> For PC users who have recorded some video with your newly purchased DJI Mavic 2 Pro, you may try to play the Mavic 2 Pro 4K video with VLC media player. The following article will show you how to smoothly view Mavic 2 Pro 4K video with VLC.

Play Mavic 2 Pro 4K on VLC using CPU or hardware acceleration

The DJI Mavic 2 Pro record 4K video by utilizing the H.265/HEVC codec, you can play this video on your computer with VLC either by software decoding or hardware decoding.

Software decoding

Your PC and VLC media player can attempt to play the Mavic 2 Pro 4K HEVC video, however, since this decoding method is using your computer’s CPU to do that math, it might stutter or be very slow.

Hardware decoding

For those people who pursue for high efficiency, it would be good idea for you to turn to hardware decoding. The condition is that you have a graphic card and a video player that both support HEVC hardware decoding. Your computer will need one of the following pieces of hardware in order to hardware decode HEVC video:
– Intel 6th generation “Skylake” or newer CPUs
– AMD 6th generation “Carizzo” or newer APUs
– NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950, 960, or newer graphics cards
– AMD Radeon R9 Fury, R9 Fury X, R9 Nano, or newer graphics cards

As for VLC, the good news is that VLC 3.0 now supports some sort of HEVC hardware decoding at least for certain cards, but you will have to enable hardware acceleration in your player of choice for it to work properly.

Steps to enable hardware acceleration in VLC

To enable hardware acceleration in VLC, head to Tools > Preferences.
Click the “Input / Codecs” tab, click the “Hardware-accelerated Decoding” box under Codecs, and set it to “Automatic”.

Tips: On Windows, H.264, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, WMV3, and VC-1 are all hardware accelerated. On a Mac, only H.264 is hardware accelerated. Videos that aren’t hardware accelerated will play normally; VLC will just use your CPU and you won’t get any battery life improvement.

From above information, we can see that although VLC supports hardware decoding, however, HEVC/H.265 codec are not in the supported list on nether Windows or Mac system. VLC will try to play the 4K HEVC video by using your computer’s CPU, which may let the 4K video playback very choppy.

Best solution to smooth play Mavic 2 Pro 4K on VLC

Since VLC only supports to playback 4K H.264 video by using hardware acceleration, then the best option is to transcode 4K H.265 to 4K H.264.

If your computer are a little old or slow, you can also choose to compress 4K to 1080p to achieve smooth playback of Mavic 2 Pro 4K on VLC.

Fast H.264 encoding with Nvidia CUDA or AMD technology

Another great news is that the Windows version of this application supports hardware acceleration encoding for H.264 codec, you can get up to 6x faster H.264 codec encoding as long as you run our program on a computer with Nvidia Graphic cards that supports Nvidia CUDA or AMD APP technology.

Best AVCHD Workflow: Play, Transcode, Edit AVCHD Files http://www.video-pedia.com/2018/06/07/how-to-play-transcode-edit-avchd-files/ http://www.video-pedia.com/2018/06/07/how-to-play-transcode-edit-avchd-files/#comments Thu, 07 Jun 2018 07:58:45 +0000 http://www.video-pedia.com/?p=8801 Continue Reading →]]> AVCHD is an acronym for Advanced Video Coding High Definition. It’s a file format for recording and playback of HD video. It is typically stored on flash memory card or hard drives. It is great for recording footage from the camera, but it can be a challenge for editing.

Editing Standard Definition footage on an older computer is easy, but editing AVCHD is another story. If your AVCHD clips stutter and drop frames when you preview in a NLE, it can be impossible to do a good job of editing. The newer full-fledged NLEs will edit AVCHD files. They also require powerful, robust computers. But for those with older computers or software, editing AVCHD can be a torture.

Why is it so difficult?

There are several reasons:

1. HD video files have up to six times the resolution of SD compressed into about the same file size. It’s this heavy compression that makes AVCHD so demanding for native editing.

2. Older computers have slower processors which may not be suitable for the high demands of editing native AVCHD files

3. The video codec avchd or h.264 codes is actually a finishing codec. When you edit with this it is highly compressed. The computer has to decompress the file before you can even see it on the screen. So when you add edits, transitions, titles and so forth, these put an even greater strain on your CPU.

If you have the bucks, you can upgrade your computer to one with a faster processor, lots more RAM as well as more storage since you won’t have tape backups.

But before you do anything, first install the software that came with your DSLR or AVCHD camcorder. This will make editing and transcoding much simpler.

What is the solutions?

If your computer is not powerful enough, so is there any way to play and edit the AVCHD files on Windows system and OS system without any curbs? You can try the best AVCHD transocder – Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate which  is an application that you can use to encode AVCHD media files to multiple formats, including MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, H.265, DNxHD, ProRes in MP4, MKV, AVI, WMV, MOV formats. It offers you massive non-linear editing software presets with the best settings, therefore you can convert the AVCHD files to MPEG for Premiere, Sony Vegas for postproduction. For Mac users you can transcode the AVCHD to "Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC)(*.mov)" for iMovie and Final Cut Express, or "Apple ProRes 422(*.mov)" for Final Cut Pro.

Apart from transcoding videos, it also works as video editing software and satisfy your basic editing needs. With it, you can merge separate video clips into one, insert external subtitles to video, add transparent text watermark/image watermark to video, crop black bars around the video frame, split large video files into small parts, adjust video color brightness, contrast, saturation, remove audio from a video or replace audio in video, trim video footage, crop unwanted area from video, etc.

If you are familiar with video format, container and codec, you can directly choose video format, then adjust the video and audio bitrate, frame rate, resolution, channel and more parameters to make the outputed video more fit in your video player and multimedia devices. With this feature, you even can compress 4K to 1080p video or upscale lower resolution video to higher resolution video.

Your failure may be caused by the large video size and long video legth, to solve this porblem an easy and efficient way is to adjust the videos to Facebook best supported video formats for uploading. Below we will share you how to upload the large AVCHD(M2TS, MTS) videos on Facebook.

Part 1. How to Upload the Large AVCHD (MTS/M2TS) Videos to Facebook

Before we set about upload the AVCHD to Facebook, one thing you have to make it clear. What video formats can be accepted well by Facebook? Does Facebook have any video uploading limits? Dont’t worry, you will get the most detailed info in the next article.

Facebook Supported Video Formats?

Facebook supports nearly all types of video uploads, including flash videos, Windows Media Videos and QuickTime movie MOVs. So in the following page we are going to talk about the detail of these video formats:

  • 3g2/3gp/3gpp (Mobile Video)
  • wmv/asf (Windows Media Video)
  • avi (AVI Video)
  • dat (MPEG Video)
  • divx (DIVX Video)
  • dv (DV Video)
  • f4v/FLV (Flash Video)
  • m2ts (M2TS Video)
  • mkv (Matroska Format)
  • mod (MOD Video)
  • mov/qt (QuickTime Movie)
  • mp4/m4v/mpeg4 (MPEG-4 Video)
  • mpe/mpeg/mpg (MPEG Video)
  • mts (AVCHD Video)
  • nsv (Nullsoft Video)
  • ogm/ogv (Ogg Media Format)
  • tod (TOD Video)
  • ts (MPEG Transport Stream)
  • vob (DVD Video)

Apart from video format, Facebook limits the video parameters like the video codec, video frame, video bitrate, audio channels, vudeo size, video length, etc. You must make sure your video is accepted by Facebook.

Video Profile Settings

Codec

The best format to upload to Facebook is H.264 video with AAC audio in MP4 or MOV format. It currently gives you a great bang for your buck in the file size to relative quality ratio, offering the best video compression available, and due to the file size limitations, this format is the optimal choice for Facebook video. And there’s no need to change the parameter during Facebook uploading.

Resolution

Use a file with the larger edge of the video constrained to1280px. If your video is less than 1280px in size on the larger edge, try to keep your dimensions to multiples of 16px for best compression.

Frame Rate

Usually videos have the best quality if the frame rate is between 25-30 fps. So you are recommended to keep the frame rate of your video at or below30fps.

Aspect Ratio

The aspect ratio of the video must be within the range of9x16 to 16x9which most videos should have, and the video exceeding the file size or length that the upload page suggests will be rejected.

Bitrate

There is no recommendation for Bitrate as it highly rests upon codec. So you are suggested to optimize video for resolution, aspect ratio and frame rate rather than bitrate.

Audio Profile Settings
Codec MP3 is preferred
Samping Rate Use stereo audio with a sample rate of 44,100hz.
Channels The number of audio channels will be maintained for stereo and mono streams. 5.1-channel audio will be down-mixed to stereo. All other channel configurations are currently unsupported.

Other tips for Facebook video uploading

  1. Keep in mind that the maximum length for a video is 120 minutes and the maximum file size is 4.0 GB.
  2. Check that you’re using the latest version of your browser.
  3. Uploading a video works best when you have a strong network connection.

Therefore, if your AVCHD is too large, or the codec in the AVCHD file can not be recognized by the Facebook well, you will fail to upload the video to Facebook. You can use one video converter which can solve these troubles, like the iMedia Converter for Mac which is a video converter, Windows user also can download this software, this video converter can work on the latest macOS High sierra and Windows 10 well.

You are allowed to customize the video parameter to make the converted file more suitable for Facebook.
