List of affected AVCHD CamCorders

This is a list of AVCHD Camcorders, which do not work with CoreAVC decoder version > 1.7.0.

Like in older versions, such as 1.7.0 and 1.8.0, CoreAVC version 1.8.5 has still problems playing back AVCHD. The affected camcorder models I know of are:

  • Canon HF10
  • Canon HF100
  • Panasonic HDC-SD1
  • Panasonic HDC-SD5
  • Panasonic HDC-SD9
  • Panasonic HDC-SD100

The playback still jitter a lot if used without a deinterlacer, and I’ve got only about 10 frames a second (estimated). Seeking within the footage works now (was broken in version 1.8.0), wheres regarding the existing problems it’s a really cold comfort.
A workaround, for playing back AVCHD footage is described here at several places. Just use latest mplayer and a decent CPU.
If anybody likes to extend the list of affected camcorder models, please post them here, I’ll update the list above and will keep tracking this issue.
I’m using CoreAVC-for-Linux. If you are using Windows, please post this information as well as the version of CoreAVC you are using. Thanks.

[UPDATE] I’ve posted a question at CoreCodec’s forum, where I ask, whether AVCHD content supposed to work at all. I’m not very confident in the meantime, but let’s try it anyway.
