  1. I was making an important video, and found out later that part of it was in slow motion. Must have been a small bad move with my left hand. Thank goodness I was able to make the whole video run at correct speed ! Thanks to this IGeeks blog.

    Now hoping when I import it , it will remain at regular speed !!!

  2. Dhvanesh,

  3. Thank you, Dhavanesh! It was SO EASY to convert the slo-mo video to normal speed. I have no idea how, after a minute or so, the video all-of-a-sudden slowed down. I must have hit something inadvertently while I was panning the room where I was making the video.

  4. Converting the video on the Iphone was simple – thank you! But then I transferred it over to myPC and it went back to slo-mo! Anything I can do to keep it at regular speed when transferring?
