Video quality suddenly reduced

I just got my Xacti CS1 and after I shot a couple of test videos, I checked the playback. On the camera screen, playback is flawless, it's quite great, however, when I play the videos back on my macbook in quicktime player, the video is choppy. It will skip a couple of frames every second. It just freezes and then all of a sudden it's a completely different frame like the video was cut and spliced together. What's wrong?

The video camera function on our PowerShot SX100 IS has switched to a feature that seems to be designed for emailing video files. We get a "compact" text box when switching to video, and there's a little envelope icon in the upper right. The problem is that we're ending up now shooting videos that only show up in tiny form, where before we had higher quality, bigger (view wise) clips. Any idea how to switch that Compact feature back to Not Compact (full-size?)? Thanks!

Video duration I have a GE A835. I want to take video. It shows that I can only take thirty minutes with a 1 gig card. The only thing that I can think of is that there is some reason it is putting the files on the camera memory instead of the card. I have used all the settings I can find to put video on card. I know that it has to take longer than that. My PHONE will take 14 hours. I would be happpy with less quality for more time. HELP

I would like to find a video camera that will allow me to freeze frames and get a single image from the video. I take animal pictures and using a regular camera is frustrating.
