Shot a couple of videos recently on my Lumia 920 and went to view them on my desktop via Skydrive and hit a snag. Well 2 snags I guess, let me back up. First, although I set my phone to download all pics/video from my camera roll to Skydrive in full definition, it appears that only photos download automatically. For videos, I have to click on it and select share to sky drive, and it eventually does. Question 1, is there a way for video to be downloaded automatically too?
Second, once I got the video onto my desktop, I went to view it on Skydrive and it would only play back at a super slow speed (almost like a frame by frame), although it sounded like the audio was normal. How do I get it to play normally?
Sorry, I'm seen this topic raised in a couple of different posts, but hadn't seen a solution. If this has been covered elsewhere, please just let me know, thanks!

Under the backup settings, it tells you that for videos you need to be on WiFi in order to upload them. I haven't played mine on my desktop lately, so I haven't seen what you're talking about. So I'm thinking, no WiFi no automatic upload. I could be wrong though.

Depends on where you try to play the video, I think. When I try to view a SkyDrive video using Chrome, I get this message: "It looks like this video's corrupt or not supported by your browser." In FireFox and IE10, the video plays only after it has fully loaded.

Does anyone have a Windows 8 PC who can confirm if the videos uploaded to SkyDrive play good on it? They play flawlessly on my 822 but are really choppy on my netbook running Windows 7. My other PC is even worse since it runs on Windows XP. Therefore, I can't even upgrade to the latest version of IE.

Did u use the highest video setting to record ur video? If so, that's ur problem. Ur PC can't decode it if it is on the low end. My wife can play my videos but my laptop struggles to play them at 1080. Its a high compression audio codec causing the video to lag.

I have a Windows 8 room that I have set up with two other Lumia 920 users and find videos they share via Skydrive recorded on their Lumias fail to play in the room or through Skydrive via the web. The only way I can get them to play is to use the WP8 skydrive app.

Just to follow up (thanks for all the replies!), I think I figured out what was going on, at least for me. For reference, I am trying to play videos on a desktop running Vista. I needed to wait until the entire video buffered, which at least on my computer could take several minutes. At that point, it would run fine. Anything prior, it would be extremely choppy. Hope this helps, and I assume it would be faster for those running Windows 8.

uploaded HD video from Lumia 920 to SkyDrive, video plays fine on my phone, when I play them on SkyDrive (IE) they are awful, its like playing a slide show, the videos don't play on chrome either. how does MS expect us to use SkyDrive to share the videos. There is no buffering either, at least buffering would be better.
