Static or Distortion on Playback

If a video plays normally on Youtube, your computer, or some other location, but in Video Surgeon|
you hear distortion or static, it is probably the issue may be due to insufficient computer resources.
Please close Video Surgeon. The open the task manager. Write down the % CPU and Memory Utilization.
Now open Video Surgeon and again note the CPU and memory utilization. Lastly, open and play a file and
record note the memory and CPU utilization. If a significant percentage of your memory and CPU is being
used when playing back in Video Surgeon this is the cause of the problem.
Video Surgeon is not a standard video player. It must separate the audio and video stream in order to
change tempo and then put them back together for playback. It also employs a very sophisticated algorithm
that maintains audio quality when key or tempo are changed. Applying this algorithm in REAL TIME as
you play a file also takes significant computer resources.
When there are insufficient resources the the result can be a stopping and starting of playing (stuttering), or a clipping or static
sound on playback.
