Why is my recorded video choppy?

There are many reasons why recorded video can be choppy. Here are a few solutions to this problem:
  1. Upgrade your firmware. Each release has better playback ability than the previous. An upgrade may immediately fix the issues you are seeing.
  2. Change the device for which you are recording. This is especially true if you are intending to play back video on portable devices such as a Palm Treo or other smartphone. Under "Video" > "Recording Settings" menu, you can change your intended playback device.
  3. Defragment the memory card/device you are recording to. As you record video, chunks of video get stored in different locations on the storage device, resulting in "fragmentation". Fragmentation slows down the Neuros OSD, as it requires your device to have to find the chunks in different areas of the disk.
