Hi everyone!

I am doing an experiment into preferential looking and am using a combination of a CCTV network running on PC/monitor (to record and store the footage) and datavyu to code the different directions of looking.

The CCTV soft/hardware only works on PC, so it looks like It will be easier to run datavyu on the same PC too.

My question is: does datavyu run without problems on PC? Does anyone have experience using the programme on PC as opposed to mac?

I have managed download datavyu to the PC and to import video files in .mp4 via VLC media player but the footage (which plays fine in the timeline) is somewhat choppy/blank when paused or stopped or moving frame by frame.

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this or any ways to improve the performance of datavyu on this PC?

Thanks so much, any advice would be appreciated ASAP!

Datavyu does work on PC. I would suggest trying to play your video in Datavyu version 1.3.4 with the Quicktime video plugin. VLC is not fully tested and implemented and therefore is a bit buggy.

If your videos are not playing smoothly, it could be the CPU of your computer (we recommend 2.67 GHz for Windows), file resolution or format, disk/network speed if the video is coming off of a server.

Please let me know if looking into these things help.
