Yes… I found a free Full HD player that can play my Panasonic HDC-SD700 1920×1080 50p m2ts files smoothly. The great free VLC Media Player cannot play those MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 1080 50p camcorder video files (playback is slow with hang here and there). It only can play smooth up to 25 fps video clips. However, the search is over. I found Splash Lite ~ the ultimate free HD player!
Compact Flash (CF) Card X-Speed Rating is not exact same as SD, SDHC and SDXC Card Speed Class Rating which use minimum writing speed as guideline. CF card is based on value of X which translate into 1X = 150 KiloBytes per second. The X-Speed rating is up to writing speed (no minimum writing speed defined which mean it might be lower writing speed). Example, 10X is equivalent up to 1.5 MB/s writing speed.
Most of the digital camera and camcorder are able to record HD video nowadays. And most of them are using SD card which have SDHC and SDXC standards. The writing speed is very important as you don’t want to miss recording any frame of the video. The speed class rating is based on minimum writing speed of the SD cards. There are class 2, class 4, class 6 and class 10 SD cards in the market now.
