Digital video files can use a plethora of frameworks, codecs, file formats and software. Even standard video file formats created by professional grade equipment can appear differently, on the very same computer system, when played back via different software.
Are you seeing every frame? Has it been edited? Is it playing back at the proper speed? Are the colors correct? Why are there gaps in the video? How come I can only see the time stamp in some players, on some computers, but not all the time? What about the aspect ratio (width x height), is it correct? Can you explain why? I can.

I have been helping courts understand the true meaning of Digital & Multimedia Evidence for over 15 years. If it's DME and it's going to court, you need to Go Beyond the PLAY Button™
My professional technology career began with the United States Army’s 82nd Airborne Division, where I served for the better part of seven years. Following my honorable discharge from the military, I relocated back to New York to attend school, and in 1997 I accepted a position as Telecommunications Manager for an upstate NY local government.
During my time in local government, I became a certified New York State Peace Officer and New York State Municipal Police Instructor, and I went on to help establish one of the first law enforcement digital evidence labs in New York State. I am a former member of the FBI Southern Tier Cyber Predator Task Force and the New York State Digital & Multimedia Evidence Technical Working Group.
I have processed hundreds of videotapes and volumes of digital storage media containing multimedia evidence for both criminal and civil investigations throughout North America. I have provided testimony pertaining to my analysis in both state and federal courts.
I have also served as a technology consultant to multiple state and local law enforcement agencies and related industry associations, such as to the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP).
