DSC-M1 (or MPEG4) playback on TV


\015 Hi all,\015\012\015\012I've owned a DSC-M1 since end of December '05 and have recorded quite\015\012a few MPEG4 clips and have primarily played back on my Mac which has\015\012been fine. Recently I burned some clips to DVD and played back on my\015\012TV and the quality is actually pretty disappointing. The video looked\015\012blocky and distorted...not really sharp. I wouldn't expect it to be as clear\015\012as a DV camcorder but still not that bad.\015\012\015\012Last week I purchased the Sanyo Xacti C5 and the playback was just as\015\012bad.\015\012\015\012I've got a plasma 50" so I'm not certain if that's the cause, i.e. it may look\015\012better on a 32" CRT? If this is normal, then I may consider switching back\015\012to a DV camcorder.\015\012\015\012Cheers,\015\012Sean\015

Answers :

The resolution is too high... in DVD ( MPEG2) format you are up-converting an MPEG4 image to MPEG2. moreover, the images are designed for playback at 640 x 480 so as you increase the play-back resolution, the quality will become worse.\015\012\015\012I would have thought newer LCD/plasma sets would automoatically recognize the native resolution and play back in 640 x 480 and am a bit surprised that such sets do not automatically configure to the best display....
I've done fairly extensive video....soccer & basketball...........editing and burning using ULEAD Video Studio 8 and its MPEG4 plug-in......and burned to DVD............playing on a 27 inch T.V., the playback quality is much better than I expected......\015\012\015\012Playing back the native file on a computer LCD seems to produce artifacting...but I've concluded that is more a result of the response time of the LCD....usually LCD are fairly slow....newer LCDs are better.....

I can only turn on my Cybershot DSC-N2 while the camera is in playback mode. I can look at the pictures and videos and change settings with no problem.. but when I try to switch to camera or video record mode the camera turns off by itself. Sometimes the lens will come out and then the camera powers down with the lens stuck out. Other times it just shuts off before the lens even has a chance to come out. The camera has never been dropped or damaged.
