RL70 playing 1080p movies - stuttering

Q: RL70 playing 1080p movies - stuttering

Morning All I have a RL70 with 4GB RAM, 512MB allocated to video card in BIOS.Drive has been replaced with high speed SSD and have tried Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Tried VLC and MPC MEdia players and on both when I play a 1080P movie from the SSD the CPU jumps up to 100% when the movie starts and the picture stutters and stops all the time. Obviously its not usable. Does anybody have any hints and tips to get this working?As far as I understand, this HD graphcs card should be capable of 1080P playback. Anybody else use this PC with 1080P without any issues?

Preferred Solution: RL70 playing 1080p movies - stuttering

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What power plan are you using? Balanced? High performance? Have you tried jellyfish files? http://jell.yfish.us/ You've tested SSD and it is working like it's supposed to......4k aligned? etc.. http://www.userbenchmark.com/ You're thinking hardware acceleration is not working? http://www.neowin.net/news/windows-10-native-mkv-support-becomes-official Youtube 1080p works? www.youtube.com Edit: I forgot to mention....turn off your anti virus temporarily when you run your benchmark. You'll get a better benchmark. But don't forget to turn it back on when you're done. There might be other RL70 users that have done a benchmark and you can compare to see if your hardware works the same as theirs. There's other benchmarks you can run if you google.

Hey guys and girls.
I have been attempting to run a 1080p movie, unsatisfactorily.
I use VLC player and the movie opens, and runs, but where there is a lot of movement in the movie, the frame rate drops to an unwatchable level.

Here is the file info:
MKV File of 11gb size.
Video ....: 1920x1080 (X264 @ 23.976fps)
Bitrate ..: 8171kbps
Audio ....: DTS 1509kbps
Source ...: Retail R2 Blu-Ray

And here are my computer specs;

OS: Windows 7 32-bit
System Model: IMEDIA 2326 AIO
Processor: AMD Phenom 8450 Triple-Core Processor ~ 2.1GHz (Not overclocked)
Memory: 4096MB RAM
Page file: 1790 used, 6035 Available
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series
Approx. Total Graphic Memory: 2426mb. DAC Type: Internal DAC (400MHz) (Overclocked to 440MHz)

Hard Disk: WDC WD3200AAJS-22B4A0 ATA ,
7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s
My processor does not overheat or reach max capacity when attempting to play the file, but averages about 65%
Does anyone have an idea why I can't run this movie?
I have theories, but I've read about people running 1080p movies with worse hardware.

Thanks in advance for help and i'd be happy to answer any questions.

A:Frequent Audio/Video stuttering while watching movies, playing games

Hi,

I would suggest you to check the performance in “Safe mode with networking”.

Run the Windows Audio Playback Diagnose and Repair from the below MS FIX-IT: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/AudioPlayback/

You can even try running Microsoft Fix IT’s from the URL mentioned below according to the issue:
http://support.microsoft.com/fixit/

If this issue started occurring after doing some recent software changes on your computer, then I would suggest you to restore your system back to a date when it was working fine. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only.

Hope this helps.

Hello mobius101, please fill up the rest of your system specs using this tutorial:-

System Info - See Your System Specs

Have you tried playing the video on an alternative media player like Media Player Classic HC to see whether the problems occur?

:: MPC-HC ::
You also mention that you're using VLC 2.1 which is a nightly version (beta) and not the latest stable version which is VLC 2.0.2.
VideoLAN - Download official VLC media player for Windows
Try switching back to the latest stable version and see whether that rectifies your issue.
Hope that helps.

Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

Hello. I just bough a screen for my computer.
I am using Windows 7 Professional 64bit.
Radeon HD5850 1GB graphic card.
Using HDMI cable

And I was hoping to get a great screen in 1920x1080 resolution by buying this screen. After reading like 10 reviews on google search it was a great match to my demands.

Then I got the screen, and tested it. However when I selected to run in 1920x1080, the quality was horrible!
I try to do print screen, but only the analog display is horrible, not the results on the computer.

However if I tune this down to 1600x1200 resolution, it looks great. But I want to have the full 1920x1080 effect not the 1600x1200 effect.

I checked the drivers, and it says my latest driver is "2009/10/29_001003". Witch looks like a recent date.

I have tried to google any specific drivers for this screen for vista/Win7 that got a newer date than my drivers. Without any luck.

I try to google other people who have same problem as me, however, I only get to 1000x different reviews of this monitor, fake driver download/repair sites and such things.

I got very mixed up feelings about this. I do not know if I shall try to deliver back the screen, or that 1920x1080p isn't for computers? Or maybe HDMI cant run 1920x1080p? Is it a malefactor fault? Shall i just stick to the screen and appreciate that it works good in 1600x1200, I mean it isn't that much lower.

Hi guys,

A:Stuttering while playing games

well be a scientist and start experimenting!! come on man..

1. turn off all sound in game.. run game. does it stutter?

2. disable sound in your actual windows 8.1 - go into device manager etc.. then run game.. stutter????!!

3. when running a game, (if it doesn't crash it) press shift,ctrl, and ESC. Look for whats using hard drive and look through performance for any % like disk usage..

4. what games are stuttering?

i mean your problem is so in-general (lag in games) its so hard to determine where to start.. but yeah, drivers are a must..

video drivers, hard drive updates, windows updates, sound driver update a huge one....

but if your sound and video hangs.. its hard drive or memory trying to sort it out..

you usually should run games in a clean environment meaning you disabled all services and background apps you aren't using because you are playing a game.. and when you restart your computer all your services will come back anyway..

if you dont know how to do this post here again..

Hello,

I'm having some problems for about 3-4 weeks now.

Up until the first BSoD I could load two games at the same time and feel like nothing was wrong or slow. Now when I try to do this (for w/e reason), the 2nd game I start either freeze or loads but when I'm moving the mouse it stutters to 1fps movement, sound too. This happens in both games, exactly the same.

If I don't do anything, main menu animation, music runs just fine...

When I try running a game, for example CS:GO. It works fine a bit, then randomly freeze + loop sound and can't tab out. Only after I End Task the program it goes to normal, or so it seems. Then after I try to reenter the game, it freezes again and I get BSoD.

Another thing I found is, while a game is open and I'm tab out in firefox for example; scrolling, general movement of the browser is not fluid and has some stutter. It lags even when I try to drag something on desktop.

Ran multiple malware scans, even in parted magic (virus scaner) on flash drive boot, nothing of note was found.

Thought the problem was because of some part of the video driver, so I uninstalled it. Rebooted in Safe Mode and ran Display Driver Uninstaller to be sure nothing was left from the previous one, reinstalled the latest one and the problem still persisted. Reinstalled Windows with fresh drivers, same problem.

A few weeks ago. I loaded up steam as normal i tried to load up a game and it said you are unable to play this game as you must update your Graphics Driver, So i updated all my drivers including my Graphics driver. And now every game i play it stutters constantly, My FPS is fine, its just stuttering, I open task manager and when i play games, My GPU usage is from 90-100% when playing games and when i load up my PC it is around 50% when i'm doing nothing. But for some reason if i share screens on e.g Discord i am able to run relatively smoothly.

Im thinking of sending my PC back to get a new Graphics card, but i thought i may as well ask before sending it off.

My Specs Are, GeForce GTX 950A, i7-6700 CPU and 12 GB Ram

But before i did this my PC ran perfectly!

My audio (when playing CDs or MP3's on the computer) seems to be stuttering and skipping. I've googled this and found all sorts of results regarding overclocking or PCI Latency Timers and I have NO IDEA what these things mean or how to deal with them.

I've removed all AdWare and scanned for viruses - nothing. I've defragged the hard drive. I've checked on the sound card driver - that seems to be up to date (or at least the automatic driver search couldn't find anything better).

Any advice? I use this system for audio and video editing so it's a pretty vital issue.

Hello,

I've been scouring the web for a while now and haven't found the answer yet.

I'm running a Sony Vaio VPCEB laptop. I used this for gaming a year ago, and have started using it again. Now though, every few seconds while playing a game, the game will stutter or freeze for a couple seconds, then resume. It's made gaming impossible on the machine.

Using PC Wizard, it tells me my graphics hardware is the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD. This is no problem since all the games I play are old or emulated. I can't seem to find a driver for it either.

OS is Win7 x64. Any help you can offer would be great!

Hi everyone,

My brother got a blu-ray movie for Christmas and wants to play it in the blu-ray drive he has on his computer. I believe it's an LG drive (BD-RW).

The drive came with a bunch of software including PowerDVD 8. However, neither PowerDVD nor Windows Media Player will play the movie. It says it's an unsupported format.

What kind of software do I need to get the movie to work in the blu-ray drive? I've heard I need to upgrade to the Ultra version of PowerDVD to be able to watch blu-ray movies, but it seems dumb to me that I need to buy extra software to watch the movie.

Thanks.
 

A:Playing Blu-Ray Movies

There were two versions of PowerDVD 8, 1) DVD only, 2) DVD and BluRay. Based on the error, I'd say you have the DVD only version.

You don't need the "Ultra version", but you will likely need the latest version (ie: 12).

Hi robin3

Maybe he was using some cracked or third party codec pack bundled with spyware/adware. Removing the spyware may prevent it from working.

Uninstall all third party codec packs using add/remove programs then install the K-lite codec pack (standard version, install ffdshow).

If he still can't play the movies then use media player classic (file => properties => details) or vlc (ctrl+i => details) to identify the required codec.

Hi,

I found a codec, and now the audio plays but stutters to the point where I can't watch the video.

Please help a numpty in distress!

A:Audio stuttering on playing Divx video

Well, I'll tell you what I do with the DivxHD MKV files...I convert them to Xvid MP4 with Format Factory.
Why? Because I have nothing but trouble playing back MKV files...the audio is out of sync, the audio stops, the audio this the audio that (can't remember stuttering).
I convert to Xvid MP4 and the picture is still great, it plays in anything and the audio is rock solid.

Other than that I think MKV is great!

took it to the shop, "oh sorry sir, you're cpu has lifted up and away from the motherboard, we had to put it back in place for you, but i`m afraid you'll ahve to re-install windows and your programs to get the drivers back" i said give it to me, i`ll do it myself, i back up some files through dos and decided a clean install was best, my computer hasn't been formated in 2 years, so what the heck.

do that, go to load windows, got some error, dont' rememebr what, but took it back and they said the original ram was bad and having conflicts. so the 32 was replaced with 128, plus a 64 we had put in a year ago. they loaded windows, but no drivers for the hardware already in like they said they would (burner and modem...) i installed the modem, no prob, the burner, looks fine.

Been researching this problem (stuttering or chugging lag) for last few days. Unfortuneately I can find nothing conclusive solution wise and am a complete newb when it comes to PC tech stuff. I know enough to get around on my PCs (have 2) and install and play games etc. But when it comes to techincal stuff I am lost. So I finally broke down and decided to try some posting....

Have 2 PCs, older one runs my usual games fine, no apparent lag or problems. Newer one (bit over a year old) seems to have had lag problems ever since I bought it. At first I just assumed the lag was zone lag on the game I was playing (Everquest - online mmorgp) possibly because I was running three instances of the game (multiboxing) and perhaps just didnt have enough ram, but as time went by I noticed that:
1) the lag stutters and chugs
2) is somewhat intermittant - appears and vanishes at seemingly random times for no apparent reason/s (usually the lag issue isn't as bad at night - or if I stay in a certain zone for long periods of time, frequent zoning seems to make it worse - neither of these appear to be very consistant)
3) seems to affect any online games I use on 2nd PC (and thus far that is all I use it for)
4) is present even while one instance of a game is running

While it doesn't actually stop me from what i'm doing it is very annoying, and i'm very tired of having to deal with it.

plz help..... before all those updates it was playing just fine... system restore is out of the question cuz it takes up memory on HD so i deleted it

A:stuttering while listening to music and playing games

Audio is on a shared IRQ (Interrupt) with a higher priority device. Thus the higher priority device can interrupt the sound if it needs to do something and thus you can get the stuttering. There can be other reasons but this is one to consider.

Uninstalling the sound, restarting the PC and then when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound and sometimes Windows will install it on a different IRQ and help with this problem.

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the sound and then LEFT click "uninstall". DO NOT check the box to also uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC.

I recently purchased a Kodak DX6340 Digital Camera. I would like to record videos to insert into Presentations for Compliance Training at our facility. The camera records just fine and will play in Quick Time Player; however, I want to play these movies in Windows Medial Player or insert into PowerPoint. I continue to get the message that the file is corrupt or not in a format that PowerPoint or that Windows Media Player will read. I have many times to associate the movie file with these applications or change to open in these applications and it does not work. I have also tried with numerous movie files. Any suggestions?
 

A:Playing movies in PowerPoint

Quicktime movies won't play in Powerpoint

Windows Media files (.wmv) and MPEG files (.mpeg, .mpg) are good options to insert into Windows Powerpoint presentations. These file formats offer good quality video at small file sizes. Mpeg or Mpg is the better choice

MPEG files (.mpeg, .mpg) are good choices for cross-platform presentations with inserted movies.

Hyperlinked Quicktime movies (.mov) work well with the Windows Powerpoint application, but Quicktime must be installed on the computer.

First off, I use Windows xp

I use Windows Media player and it's always worked fine for me. LATELY, when I try to move the curser (to maybe skip something in the video or something) and set it to where I want, or even just enlarge the movie/video to full screen, the picture acts weird and then after about 10 seconds the video might be playing slow and the sound doesn't match up. Or sometimes when I move the curser or fullscreen, there is picture, but no sound. It doesn't happen to EVERY video but I can say 70 percent of videos I watch, it happens to.

Even when I watch streams, if I move the curser, it does the same thing.

I've tried system restore and reinstalled Windows Media Player but no use.

Any idea on what it is or what I can do?

This isn't my problem, but someone asked me about it, and it seemed so interesting I thought I'd ask here.

it must be some sort of setting, BUT, why would it have a setting for playing them upside down in the first place?

he said he had been fooling around with it, but didn't think he changed anything or "applied" anything different.

I have asked him what his OS/browser etc is.

Has anyone ever heard of this, let alone have a way to fix it? I suggested he reinstall the players, and he had said he might have to wipe the harddrive and redo everything, but that is a last resort.

I don't know why, but for a few days now Windows Media Player, DivX Player

Hey there.

I've been facing a lot of issues with my computer. My processor fan keeps going fast and slowing down. This happens once every 2-3 mins. It becomes noisy for just 4 to 5 seconds and then is normal. This repeats every 2 or 3 minutes. If i'm watching a movie it sort of gets stuck and then plays again with a jerk. I checked my device manager and under 'other devices' there seems to be a question mark.

I was infected by a virus (trojan) which I got help with on the kaspersky forum. The moderators there also confirmed with me twice that the virus does not show on my computer any longer. I don't know what the problem could be but this processor fan issue doesn't seem normal. My computer specs are p4 3.0ghz, 2 gb ram, 500gb Sata HDD. It's not branded..it's assembled. Thanks for the help.
 

A:Problems with playing movies.

It sounds like a possible heat problem. Have you cleaned the dust out of your computer lately? If not get yourself a can of compressed air take the system outside like maybe to the garage, open it up and use the can of air to blow the dust out of it. Do not however use a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust. Vacuum Cleaners are static electricity generators, and can build up enough of a charge to fry components on your system. I see threads where people use vacuums frequently. Please do not pay any attention to the suggestion to do that. While you may be successful all it takes is one discharge of Static electricity and you are spending a lot more money than a 3 or 4 dollar can of air.

I try to run these but but alas I do so in vain. Windows Media Player bemoans a lack of codec, and VLC Media Player simply despairs. I have scoured the internet for precious hidden codecs but to no avail. Is there any amongst you who are willing to asnwer my plea? Untold riches and rewards beyond all imagination await the brave man, or woman, who can offer an end to my dreadful plight.

Hi, I might not be of great help but I felt like I should say something. Now I take it you are trying to play movies and you don't have the codecs.

1) If this is a downloaded movie and it ask for codecs in VLC player = Virus

2) If original movie, asks for codec lets continue the fun.

Now try updating to the lates VLC player. I believe Realplayer it also something of good use.

Also try installing the codecs from here
