Q: Jumpy and Skippy video

I am having problems with my video editing software. It is a MAGIX program. All of a sudden whenever i play things back in the program, the video and audio start to go really slow and skippy, It's so annoying and it's impossible to edit any further. Does anyone know what I can do to fix the program. I have worked very hard on this project and I need to get it done.

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.)

Whenever I am playing PC games (eg. Sims, Tycoon games) I notice that my video is jumpy, or it pauses as if it is buffering. I have more than enough memory (1GB) in my system. Windows XP Pro. My hard drive is a 180GBB which was recently defraged. My CPU is a 2.6 Celeron. My video right now is an Intel integrated adapter. I also noticed that my CPU usage is at 100% when the game is active. My question is if this is a CPU or a Video problem? I am thinking of purchasing an 128MB AGP Video Card. Another thing is that the game is running from the CD-ROM. Any suggestions.
P.S. I have my system setup for Best Performance.
 

A:Video is jumpy when playing PC games

I wouldn't think you would need a fancy card for those kind of games, do you have an option of loading the game onto the hhd?? if so try that, but hey, I'm always up for a new video card.

HI , I was given an older computer to revamp for my brother. He is on a disability income and I want to burn him some video files to watch .. have some old family movies. It is an older computer with a Celeron 466 processor, and integrated video and sound. The video shares ram . I have assigned it 64 megs of ram and have installed 256 megs total . It is running windows 98SE. Is there any hope of getting divx video or mpeg video to run smoothly on here ? If so would my best bet be trying to install a separate video card, adding more ram , upgrading the cpu , all of the above? I need to do this the least inexpensive way possible please. I know my last pc before the one I built was a 533 and it could play video without this difficulty as long as I didn't run other things at the same time. PS have also tried putting the video on the hard drive and still get pauses in the video and then the sound isn't in sync.
Thank you very much.

I uninstalled several dvd conversion programmes on the 18 dec 08, They did not work and then installed one that did. After this my pc ran very slow, sound from online bbc radio was distorted and online videos would not play without jumping, firefox was very slow to load in fact any programme i tried to load was very slow and i occasionally had a crash. I tried cc cleaner, norton and several other registry cleaners but other than telling me that i had a problem and saying they had been fixed, the problem remained. I also uninstalled as many programmes as i could including itunes, google earth etc.etc. I cannot play itunes without distortion. I reset to an earlier date but this was on the 18th and could not go back further. My pc is an Acer Aspire 1640z with xphome and service pack 3. It's time to replace it but I would like to keep it going a little longer. I am reluctant to do a system restore as I'm not too savvy. Can anybody suggest a solution that a none too technical person like me, could try?

A:distorted sound jumpy video very slow pc

check your drives are dma mode

what are you running
video card
cpu

check the listings in the bios for voltages and temperatures and post them

I have followed thoroughly various tutorials for setting up OBS for streaming. Initially I had set it up for Youtube, then switched to Twitch. This works fine. I have absolutely no complaint with that. Streaming out to these platforms is working as I would like.
This issue I'm experiencing is what I can best describe as a pulsing or jumping, about once per second when I play a file back that I have recorded (not streamed) with OBS.

The audio is flawless, no stuttering, nothing like that. Audio BR is at 160...

As I watch the status information in OBS as I am recording, I see no warning about overloaded encoder, the frame rates are where they are supposed to be, no dropped frames. everything should appear to be good. CPU load is unremarkable, again plenty of headroom. It doesn't seem to matter if I increase bit rate, decrease bit rate, CBR, VBR, increase or decrease framerate, or which software i use to view the output fine: VLC, WMP, whatever, there is this pulsing. Its just enough to be annoying. Its subtle, but it's there. And it doesn't matter which PC I play the file on ( I have a few I can test it with)

The computer running OBS is more than adequate for the task.

I have - in an effort to improve things - changed recording format, changed encoder, even the location to which I was saving it ( initially that was a network drive, but I change to an internal SSD for test purposes) I can not get rid of this.

This is just for a little pet project, I ... Read more

Hi Guys, im having a bit of a problem with my dvd player on my laptop. the laptop is a Dell XPS M170 running XP pro and the dvd player is an HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-T21N. the original died a few weeks ago and i got a replacement part under warranty. the problem is that now i can not watch films. i get about a second or two then it will pause for a second or two. I have updated the firmware and drivers, i have also turned the hardware acceleration on and off. this playback problem occurs in both VLC and Windows Media Player which both worked with my previous drive. its starting to bug me now and any ideas would be great although i am starting to think that perhaps it is a faulty drive and i should get a new replacement??

Hi all,

I have a .VOB file that I just burned onto a DVD+R using Roxio's MyDVD application. But when I watch the resulting video on my DVD player, it looks pretty 'jumpy'.

Any ideas what might be causing this? The source file, the MyDVD application, my DVD player?

Main problems: Programs take a while to start-up, windows takes a while to start-up, all icons on desktop take a while to appear when starting up (just generic icon for a while until computer actually starts responding), video and audio is choppy.Already went through the Malware attempts and disk scanning, defragging, and all that:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...p;#entry1586320Not sure if it's software or hardware related as I'm not sure what CPU temperatures I should be expecting and the computer has always run hot.The previous HD on this computer got borked and ended up getting a new one thats much bigger and faster (7200 vs 5400). So far from all the different hardware testing programs everything seems to be passing.Any ideas? It's been driving me crazy and sure is making it hard to get work done.Thanks!

A:slow comp, especially on start-up & jumpy streaming video

How much RAM installed?How much free space on C:? How large is C:?I find that..."slow" is a relative term and when applied to a system...much depends on what is installed and running.Don't know if you have looked at remarks by Quietman7 at Slow Computer-browser Check Here First; It May Not Be Malware - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/87058/slow-computerbrowser-check-here-first;-it-may-not-be-malware/.FWIW: From the time that I press the power button...until all icons are present and system is accessible...normally takes 2-3 minutes for me (which is probably a good average).Problems with video files...depends heavily on system capabilities and origin/locale of the video source (online or hard drive).Louis

Trimming down that bloated Startup directory might help:

Click Start > Run > type msconfig

Select the Startup tab.

Other than Symantec/Norton, almost all items can be unchecked.
Reboot the computer.

After rebooting, when the small System Configuration Utility window appears, ignore the message. Put a check mark in that window, then click OK.

Have recently un-installed my ATI Radeon x1300 video driver because it caused endless problems and re-installed the NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE that my computer (Dell C521, Vista Ultimate 64-bit) originally came with, plus a recommended NVIDIA update. And, by the way, I use an ATI Theater 650 Pro card, 32 bit version with Media Center.

Problem: old TV recordings (from the ATI Radeon days) work perfectly. With new recordings, as well as live TV, the pictures and sound jump from one frozen 1-2 second episode to the next. Sound the same thing. Is there a setting in the NVIDIA control panel, that could fix this, or is it something else??

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone else who has AIM suffers from lag when they try to drag around the IM boxes. It seems like everytime I open up AIM and move the IM boxes around they skip from place to place rather than move in a smooth motion. If anyone else has this or knows how to fix it please let me know, its not really crucial but it is pretty annoying. Also I'm pretty sure its not my system as I am running a P4 2.8 1 GB RAM and GeForce 6800 graphics card.

This just started up about a week ago. Not sure what caused it.

Basically, no matter why type of video I am watching, be it mpg avi quicktime anything, the video will randomly stutter about once a minute. In detail, the video freezes for about 1 third of a second, and then the actual video clip jumps forword a full 2 seconds or so. Enough time to omit quite a few words from a speach in a video. It's really annoying me. It does it in both Media Player Classic, and Windows Media Player. It is not codec related at all.

My best bet is something has been changed in Direct X, so is there anyway to verify this?

A:Videos are skippy all of a sudden

Hi

Any new hardware or software/driver updates, etc, added just prior to this starting?

Do you run regular malware/virus checks?

Does switching your firewall off make any difference?

Hello, I have a problem. My videocard is going crazy. All the Videogames I play are choppy and skippy for some reason. Yet the one game where it works fine is RTCW-Return to Castle Wolfenstein. I performed a clean install of windows xp, but the problem persists, which makes me think its not a software problem, but a hardware one. I'm a bit short on cash, and don't want to buy a new videocard for my laptop, but all options are open.

I have the Asus F3JP, upgraded to 2 GB of RAM, and working perfectly except for videogames. I bought it this January. Any information to help will be given, thanks so much for your help!

Hi guys

I'm guessing that your monitor is on the "older" side and that could be the whole problem.

Check that your monitor cable is in good condition, no kinks or twists and that it is firmly connected to your video adapter plug.
Install the latest drivers for your video card.
Try changing the resolution settings for the monitor. Try both higher and lower, but don't make any big changes or you might end up with a blank screen.
If possible plug in the monitor on another system. If the problem goes away your video card could be the problem or the monitor is picking up interference at its usual location.

Just because a thread even remotely sounds like it has to do with a p2p doesn't mean it should automatically be closed. Case in point is the question about copying downloaded music. First of all the guy never even mentioned a p2p he just said he downloaded some music. Last I checked there are hundreds of sights where you can LEGALLY DOWNLOAD music. Secondly the question is asking about an wma to mp3 converter which has nothing to do with a p2p. The moderators need to be a little less jumpy about this p2p issue. They are hastily removing questions without even reading them to trully understand what there asking. This is going to cause problems for them in the long run so just try to be a little patient before striking people down

Hi, so I have an old Packard Bell monitor and recently the screen has been a little jumpy in that it's image moves up and down slightly. I have recently put in a tnt2 ultra video card and have the resolution set to the monitor's max. No other monitor options were changed though. The 'jumps' only happen once in a while, then nothing. I took off the desktop background image, no noticable change.

Is my monitor just old? or could it be the new resolution? Maybe the drivers for the tnt2 ultra could be updated, I'm only using the manufacturers driver not NVidea's. Could I use the newer Detonators instead?

here's a diagnostic:

A:monitor jumpy - too old?

I'd say it's your video card drivers - try updating them to some of the old Detonators, not the 30's or the 40's since those are optimized toward the GF3's and the GF4's, respectively. Try the 10's, or even the 20's. See if that fixes your problem.

You mentioned "new resolution" - which was the monitor's maximum, 1024x768. What resolution were you running it at before? 800x600? If so, then try reverting back to that resolution for like an hour to see if it still does it.

My mouse pointer has become intermittently jumpy. It hesitates when following the mouse and mouse pad. I turned off the mouse pad and it is still happeneing. I even tried a wired mouse. Same problem. Doesn't happen all the time but quite often, especially after restarting. Any ideas?

Same problem with mousepad and an external mouse will probably be a hardware problem on the motherboard.

I tried a Pinnacle PCTV HD pro stick on my x64Vita ultimate. It worked fine except for the recording. When I played it back it "lagged" actually it looked more like the video was jumping due to the saves to the HDD during the recording. My question is: Is this because of the USB tuner or a machine issue? If so do the PCIe cards not do this?
Thanks

A:Jumpy recording

Looking at your system specs I would expect you to be able to view it without any problems.

How up to date are your drivers,and do you get the computer to look for drivers or do you go to Nvidia?

I also notice you only have a single 2Gig stick of Ram, Is that because of the problem installing 64 Bit with too much Ram to start with?

Has it played back correctly in the past?

What program did you use for the recording?

I edited a movie that I recorded on my camcorder using Adobe Premiere 3.0. Since I only plan to view it with another computer I do not need to burn a DVD. I exported the finished video to "movie" which created an AVI file. I put the file on my hard drive. It is a five minute video but the file is 1.2 gb. Too big for CD. I copied the file to a DVD-R.

The movie play fine using Media player when playing from hard drive.

When I try to play it from the DVD, the movie is very jumpy. The sound continues ok but the video continues to pause throughout the whole thing.

What is the problem? Do I always need to copy it to hard drive before play back or does it need to be saved in a different format?

Thanks.

Have one of those pad mouse right on the notebook. It gets so jumpy -- wants world domination and doesn't give a **bleep** what I think (or feel).  Please help. I can't get any of my work done. And buying a cordless mouse is not an option; those cramp up my hand :/ Cheers!

@iheartmotogp Try setting the "delay" after you touch the mousepad: Settings > Devices > Mouse and touchpad > Under "To help prevent the cursor from accidentally moving while you type, turn off the taps or change the delay before taps work" >Set delay (in drop down menu) to Medium (or Long) delay  NextScroll down on the same page (Mouse and touchpad) >Click Additional mouse options If available, find and set Touch Sensitivity closer to "Heavy Touch" Setting the sensitivity to closer to Heavy Touch can help reduce "accidental" input if you brush your hand against the touchpad when you are typing. When you see a Post that helps, inspires, provides fresh insight,or teaches you something new, click the Thumbs Up on that Post.Fixed / Answered?

Hey, I just got finished building my new PC and I am having a issue with the mouse being extremelly jumpy. This happens when downloading files with utorrent or from websites, my old PC never did this and the new one is about 4x faster although the older PC had XP.

Specs:M2N-SLI Deluxe MB, 2gb G.Skill DDR2 RAM, AMD Athlon X2 3.2ghz dual-core, Geforce 8800GT 512mb, 600watt PSU, and a 250gb Seagate HDD.

The mouse just acts like it is lagging really bad, however whats strange is this only happens when browsing around on the desktop, and downloading/transfering files at the same time. In games this never happens the mouse works fine even with the games highest graphics settings(WOW, Company of Heroes, Crysis).

Lately the open windows on my computer will jump from one window to the next,back and forth. randomly. Sometimes it seems to jump with the roll of the mouse wheel or movement of the mouse. I did just have to reinstall the mouse driver/software (Kensington). Somehow it not longer was working correctly. this may be the problem but I'm worried I may have been hijacked. I was hoping someone might be able to look at my log and maybe lend me a hand with this problem.
Would appreciate any help

My mouse jumps around on my screen. I've uninstalled and reinstalled SP2 to no avail. I'm running XP Pro with a P4 3GHz and 2GB ram and over 130GB of free space, there are no bangs in device manager and it happens with either a ps2 or optical mouse
I use AVG free edition and AdAware/Spyware Blaster and have tried restore points but I can't figure it out. It just began about a month ago but is driving me crazy. I don't want to reinstall XP. Any Ideas.

Obviously you have tried a different mouse (yes)?

So maybe a repair of xp will sort it save you a complete install.

How to go about Repairing Windows XP
1. Put your Windows XP Install CD into your CD-ROM drive.
2. Reboot your computer.
3. Let your system boot off of the CD.
4. Let the Setup go through the first part of the Installation procedure.
5. When you come to the screen in which it says "Welcome to Setup." press Enter to Setup Windows XP.
6. Press F8 to agree to the End User License.
7. Let the Setup search your system for previous versions of Windows.
8. When the Setup is finished searching your system, select your Windows XP Installation and press the R key on your keyboard to start the Repair Procedure.

This is the part that might make you nervous . The Setup will delete all major system files and then replace them with new copies.

You will have to download all of the updates from Microsoft Windows Update again because it replaces the files.

Don't worry, your user data is still intact. Nothing has been lost, nothing has been deleted. Your data is safe, just the OS has been repaired, so relax.

There is nothing to worry about as long as you follow the steps to repairing Windows XP.

I just went through an issue with SVCHOST, I ran the MS fix all seemed Ok.  I have a new issue, it takes several clicks to get a pull down menu to stay.  Also when to playing a card game the cards act flaky, they will not drag well and often jump back to where they were.  Looking for ideas on where to look to find a fix.

I'd start with running the chkdsk /r command, followed by a defrag of the Windows partition.
 
If issue continues...I'd run the sfc /scannow command.

My mouse pointer jumps all over the screen at random. It will work fine for a few seconds, and then jump, then work again, then jump a bunch, etc.

It is "Optical" Brand, or maybe "3D Optical." It didn't come with any drivers or software, and various Google searches have turned up nothing.

Is this a driver issue, and if so where can I find them for download? Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
