I recently started video editing with the video editing function in blender. Until now there was no problem, but today I made a screen capturing video on my android phone using the play store application AZ screen recorder. I transfered the video to my computer an imported it into blender. The video is a mp4 file 1920x1080 p 30fps and about 1 minute long, but after importing the video sequence editor showed over 6000000 frames.

After closing blender rebooting my computer and updating blender I tried importing the video again. Now the VSE says my video is only about 1800 frames long - so that is good, but if I want to play the video and watch it in the VSE preview window it seams frozen. I can hear the audio but the video isn't playing.

Is there any way to fix this?

  • $\begingroup$ Most likely the video was recorded using some form of variable frame rate. Blender does not support that. Transcode your video first into a constant frame rate. $\endgroup$

Maybe try to change video format before importing to blender? Idk in which format the app is recording the video file, maybe this may cause issues. :)

  • $\begingroup$ Yay, but mp4 is only a container file and not a video file itself so maybe try change to flv, wmv and also mp4 just to be tried. :) $\endgroup$
