Hello Everyone,

New to the Forum, so I will thank you in advance for help on this.
I use the camera on my Wife's MacBook as an inexpensive home security device, by simply turning it on and pointing it in the direction of the front door.

I did so last night and saved a 04:00:51 long Video when I got home.
The curious thing is that when I play the video, this happens:

Play 00:00:00 - 00:00:02
00:02:29 - 00:02:39

Aaand that's it!
The video indicates that it is four hours long, but there are only segments left in the file. The house hasn't been ransacked and the dog's still here. Is it possible that the file became corrupted because of the length of the recording?


QUOTE Thanks

I don't recall that iPhoto has video input, so if not iPhoto, what tool and version are you using?

How big is the video file? MBs or GBs size?

In the past there was a 2GB limit. That is a blanket statement. What versions of OS X are you using?

What tool are you using to playback the video?

CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
