Can you post the file's properties, i.e., A/V codecs, bit rate, ect. Mediainfo is recommended to obtain these properties

I also use the IceCream recorder and have the same issue. I am currently using Vegas Platinum. Is there a solution? I have tried to output the data in H264 or MPEG4, and still get same problem. Help!

Vegas does not like variable framerates as yours that is 2,5 till 30 frames per second and maybe that Codec Mpeg 4-visual is not a known codec for Vegas.
I think it is better to convert those videofiles with Handbrake to mp4 AVC with constant framerate.
And in the future use the free OBS for making screenvideos with the recommended settings as published on this forum: https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/faq-what-obs-studio-settings-work-well-with-vegas-pro--109925/

I did try OBS Studio, that does work. Thanks for that hint. Though that was after I paid 30.00 for the Ice Cream Recorder software to verify issue. Be it as it may... Ice Cream works on a ton of platforms... It should work under Vegas as well.. If it is just a codec.. Vegas should handle that .. I tried H264 and MPEG4 on AVI, MP4 and MOV ( so 6 combos ... ) none worked on Vegas. ALL worked on the other movie software I own.. I like Vegas.. but it has some issues.. I'll keep trying .. but not 100% satisfied with it.. and the stalls and go off into space episodes... and I have only three major packages loaded on that machine.. I purchased a machine JUST to do these video edits with Vegas Platinum...

In that case you post here on the wrong forum, this is the Vegas Pro forum

"Ice Cream works on a ton of platforms... It should work under Vegas as well."

From my signature, "I'm curious about almost everything." Would someone on the forum do a search or ask Gary when Vegas Professional became enslaved to every free or $30 screen recorder on the earth?

I question the premise that any NLE should have built-in support for every acquisition codec or video format that another entity choses to use.  

shipmodeller wrote on 6/28/2019, 3:25 PM

I am sorry that you felt that I offended you. I am a retired programmer, 53+ years coding... so I do get carried away. And I never said that some issue should be ENSLAVED.. and Yes, I posted in the wrong group.. but from the threads, PROFESSIONAL has the same issue with Ice Cream Recorder and two others. I use. It is just as wise to tell Ice Cream recorder to offer another option on THEIR encoding. ( And I have ) And if the Codec isn't supported, then a message popup should come up saying that.. would eliminate a lot of confusion. ( These posts wouldn't have occurred.. )

Not the Gary that @john_dennis refers to, but his comment quotes Magix Vegas support anyway. And the text of this old SCS KB article is still to be found verbatim in the Vegas support documents. There's of course Nick's FAQ as well (linked in the pinned main FAQ, section 19.).

john_dennis wrote on 6/28/2019, 3:52 PM

I'm not offended, simply sharing my perspective about how the world should work.

Here's another:

Your screen capture software used a free, open source application...

Writing application                      : Lavf57.83.100

and for whatever reason encoded...

Format settings, Matrix                  : Default (H.263)

Frame rate mode                          : Variable
Frame rate                                    : 11.614 FPS
Minimum frame rate                      : 2.500 FPS
Maximum frame rate                     : 30.000 FPS

Format                                   : MPEG Audio
Format version                       : Version 1
Format profile                         : Layer 3

..when it conceivably could have captured something like this...

...which was captured by OBS. The OBS capture goes through Vegas Pro like a hot knife through butter.

If you're worried about the "sunk cost" of the $30 you spent on IceCream recorder, let me tell you about a penny stock I bought in the 1987.
