Re: Video Haltiness Multiple Times/Second
You may be able to simply cut the file up using dd, e.g.
dd if=bigfile.ts of=cut.ts skip=NNN count=MMM bs=1024
Where NNN is the offset to start int he file and MMM is how much to capture. Adjust bs to your desire (multiplies by NNN/MMM) Sure, this won't cut on a picture boundary, let alone a reference picture boundary, but if the file still plays after that, it may demonstrate the problem.
