video playback and streaming. Video card problem or software?

Q: video playback and streaming. Video card problem or software?

I recently installed Windows Service Pack 2, actually three times after reinstating my computer software to the original state by erasing and reinstalling the full software install CD on my computer's hard drive for Window XP Home. I have no problems playing games with my new FX 5200 Ultra video card by BFG, but I am at random times getting the annoying green screen that blanks out my videos I am streaming or playing(happens when I am streaming more often). Then after that happens usually, the computer reboots or shuts off. I never had this happen before. My computer's memory tests ok so why can I play games with this never happening but when I am streaming or watching video through Windows Media Player, etc do I get the "green screen blankout" and then often the shutdown of my computer? I have 512 MB of system memory and 128 MB of video memory! I use System Mechanic and it shows I have at least half of my memory even during playback so what is the problem here? I can attach my system computer file of my information if you like in an e-mail if it will help. AND YES I HAVE THE DIVX CODECS. I thought about that to and uninstalled and reinstalled them with the same random problems. PLEASE HELP ME. This is really annoying.

Preferred Solution: video playback and streaming. Video card problem or software?

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.)

Well, it seems u dont have a hardware problem. this problem occurs only when u r watching videos. so i guess its the media player. take my suggestion, stop using it. Download this pack: KLite Codec Pack. I think the latest version is 3.2. Its got all the codecs u need to play compressed videos, and dvds. Its also got an advanced media player which can play any video u open it with like wmv, dat, mpg, rm, mov, avi, divx..... of course, the codecs for these formats r included in the pack.

For the last month or so online video has been choppy. In troubleshooting the problem I've found that another computer on the same network doesn't have this problem so not the network or internet connection. Neither is the problem about buffering since it'll still be choppy after the entire video has loaded. As well, I can download and save a choppy video and play it back on VLC or even open and play it from within Firefox and it works fine. The problem is only when streaming videos from a website (all websites) whether in Firefox, Chrome or IE.

I've tried updating the Flash Player, DirectX and video card driver, I've tried turning on/off hardware acceleration in Flash, Firefox and Display within Control Panel, I've tried disabling my virus protection and firewall, I've tried locating and disabling startup programs and services associated with none running software programs....Nothing works.

Does anyone have any ideas I could try to fix this?

A:Choppy streaming video playback within browser.

Is this happening at Youtube or elsewhere? Is it just happening at one site or several sites? Link please so I can look at it myself. How much RAM do you have? Be aware that random buffering and choppiness on streaming video sites can be normal even if it doesn't seem normal. One solution is to pause the video and allow it to load completely before playing it.

I know this has probably been asked here several times, but I have been looking through the web for all sorts of little tips and tricks and none of them so far have worked. Any hulu/youtube/etc. streaming content type videos, even on the lowest hd setting (288p, for ex.) just ends up being choppy, worst in full screen. Here are my specs:

AMD Athlon XP 2600+ CPU
1.0 gig of Ram
PNY GeForce FX5200 256 mb PCI Graphics card
Windows XP Home Ed. w/SP3
160 gb HD

I am aware that this is definitely an older computer with an older processor, and if anything, it's probably the cpu that is preventing me from having normal playback with streaming content. I had a laptop with a Core Duo processor that worked fine with this type of video, but I fried it so I am stuck with this for now. Haven't used this PC in a few years so now I am noticing it's limitations as far as this stuff goes. If anyone has had any luck with an older machine getting relatively normal playback with these streams, please let me know. I have tried reducing hardware acceleration, drivers are fully updated for graphics card, hard drive is formatted so no viri are causing this, reinstalling flash, changing settings on monitor, and playback is the same. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated

recently I have wanted to get into video editing and I decided to try out a few different video editing software tools. I tried windows movie maker 2.6 first and it kept skipping when I would preview clips and freezing. The same thing is happening with the trial version of adobe's premiere elements 9 trial version. For adobe, it told me to download the latest video driver that was compatible so i did and it allowed me to see my videos and use it a little bit but it would not be able to keep up and would freeze occasionally. Does this have to do with my graphics card? This is what I could find of my computers information (i typed dxdiag in run):

System:


Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit (6.1, Build 7600)
System Manufacturer: TOSHIBA
System model: Satellite A505
BIOS: InsydeH20 Version 1.20
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q 720 @ 1.60GHz (8 CPUs), ~1.6GHz
Memory: 4096MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX11

And I guess this is my graphics card:

Name: NVIDIA GeForce 310M
Chip Type: Geforce 310M
DAC Type: Integrated RAMDAC
Approx. Total Memory: 2256 MB
Current Display mode: 1366 x 768 (32 bit) (60Hz)

If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

P.s. I'm not very computer savvy so keep that in mind :-/

Hello reader. I work in the tech department of a small company that sells recording equipment for vehicles.
We have started selling a range of digital video recording (DVR) units and are having a huge problem with the viewing software.
The software is called CMSV6 and is a generally universal viewing tool for DVRs.
I have tested this software on 3 laptops and 3 desktop PCs and it only works on one - a dual core 2.4ghz, 32bit win7 sp1, 4gb ram. I have been assured from the developers that the program is compatible with every (non server) version of Windows from XP and onwards.
The other machines are running Windows XP, 8.1 and 10.
On the latter machines The program loads fine but when you chose the directory of the footage you want to view, the program simply does not find anything.
It's almost like the program is being blocked or there is a small *something* missing from all the other computers.
I have tried
installing and running the program with admin rights
Sharing the drive/folder
Lowering and removing basic security settings
Adding firewall/antivirus exceptions
Disabling firewall/antivirus
Every 'compatibility mode' imaginable
Different versions of the program
Updating Adobe flash and Java
Any ideas would be much appreciated

A:Digital Video Recorder playback software being blocked?

A google search doesn't reflect that name as DVR software.  Another search reflects that name as being the product of various spftware developers.

I have a Hercules Prophet DDR-DVI 32mb video card and 52x CDrom drive. The video card comes with DVD play back software and I was wondering if I need to have an actual DVD rom drive or does this mean it can translate from the regular CDrom.

I think the answer is that I need to have a DVD rom drive in conjuntion with DVD capable video card, but before I make the investment, I wanted to consult you guys.

Alright, I have spend about 3 years trying to resolve this problem and I have done so much research that I felt it would be a waste for me not to post something about it. 
After I owned two Dell laptops, the XPS13 and Alienware 17. Both having the same problems. I tried everything, I read through all of the forums and I tried everytthing these forums have suggested and at multiple occasions I ruined my laptop and had to format it. 
I also always had the full warrenty with Dell customer service and have replaced my xps13 TWICE and my Alienware once. This is of course after replacing the motherboard and the hard drive and spending endless hours over the phone with them while they update all my drivers and ensure my software is running correctly. They ran 100's of tests on my computer to see why this is happening and no one could ever solve this problem. 
However, after all this research with no solution in sight I thought of the problem logically. My alienware was running 16 gb of ram and 1 TB of HDD regular hard drive. I figured if I have so much ram to run anything I want, maybe it is having the regular hard drive that is not keeping up with the ram. Sure enough, when I went and bought the best SSD out there Samsung Pro 950 256 GB and installed it and used it as my operating system while the HDD ran as my storage.

Hello all,
I am looking for some assistance as to what is causing my computer to crash. It doesn't happen insanely often, but the way it crashes makes me think there's a hardware issue going on. I am mostly thinking it's either my CPU or one of my two graphics cards installed, but I'd be more inclined towards the GPU being faulty.

The reason being is that the crashes happen mostly when I'm doing HD video playback or editing video or visual effects. The software I use mostly is The Foundry's Nuke and Autodesk's Maya. I also experience video lag spikes during this, such as poor UI navigation within these software.

However, I have tried stress testing my CPU and graphics cards for hours without any crashes, and even performing fresh installs on the OS(Win7), so I'm not entirely sure which piece of hardware is causing me these crashes and spikes. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Iím in a dilly of a pickle here.

When playing video, my screen will go black for just a second and then return to normal. With most video players, the video will then usually play, but when using BSPlayer (bsplayer.org) to watch video, the screen will go black, return to normal and then video will not play.

It gets worse. Sometimes, I will be minding my own the computer will still be running, but then, the screen will go black, then the monitor will give me the old message:
"self test / check your pc and signal cable / monitor is working"
The computer will still be running, and the only way I know to get picture back is to restart the computer. I have gotten this error the most when the using BSplayer, which sometimes causes the monitor to just shut down like that. But other video players like divx, QuickTime, and windows media player will all occasionally not play or cause weird image problems to crop up on the screen

Also, if the computer freezes up, hitting ctrl+alt+del gives me a black screen with garbled white text.

I have updated my NVIDIA drivers and installed the latest bsplayer version, but neither of those actions fixed my dilemma.

I have a question for the gurus here.

I notice with video playback that it gets a little choppy, like a line that forms across the middle of the screen and breaks up the video. It seems to only happen in 'higher intensity' video playback, but I don't know that for sure. I'm fairly certain that I have the most updated drivers from ATI, but will check for sure when I get home. What else could this be? Do I just need more power? The gfx card is a few years old now. Originally I thought it was my monitor, but I have since replaced it and the problem persists.

A friends PC worked fine, played back standard def and 720p HD without a problem.

Then it stopped, and started using 100% CPU for either type of video file and staggers/pauses.

For what appeared to be no reason at all.



We reinstalled Windows XP, all current drivers etc and still the same.



We changed the Hard Drive and still the same. (in-case of PIO mode)

We changed the memory and still the same.

We changed the GFX card and still the same.



Thing is it worked perfectly fine before it started craping out.

Its a dual core 3.2ghz processor with a gig of ram, it worked perfectly before!

We dont know what to do anymore other than change the CPU and/or Motherboard!

Any help would be very much greatly accepted!

Thanks in advance

A:Video Playback Problem

You'll want to put it back into DMA mode (PIO is slooow).
dual-core should be plenty of horsepower for HD.
First thing I'd try to do is get the latest drivers for the graphics card (generic drivers from Microsoft probably aren't optimized for DXVA)

Have you tried Media Player Classic HC?
http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/
You'll definitely want to read this though:
http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/DXVASupport.html
DXVA is a technology that allows for the GPU to offload video decoding from the CPU. It requires proper codecs and players to work. (and naturally for proper graphics card and graphics drivers)

Can you list additional specs? GPU? Do you have the latest drivers for GPU? Media Players and codecs installed.

Hey there,

Every video I play with any player (windows media, media player classic, real player, ect ect) will sometimes freeze the video (the sound still goes) when I either first play it or full screen the video. The only play it will not do this with is Winamp, but with Winamp there is a problem with my videos when I fullscreen them using Winamp that two black bars on the right and left won't disappear but do not completely touch the bottom and top of the video (so it looks like the video kind of sticks out when its in full screen, very annoying).

I have no idea what it is, I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling my codecs and video drivers (I use Combined Community Codec Pack for codecs and Omega Drivers for video drivers).

how do i stop those windows installer screens from poping up.

those installers sem to try to install things from the ace mega codec pack but it never does as it was uninstalled

Hi there, i'm having a very annoying problem with my computer!
I have my PC connected up to my 26" Bush LCD TV for gaming & that works no problem but when i come to watch any video files from the PC or use the DVD drive on the PC, all i get on the TV is a back space where the video should be. I can watch stuff on the monitor ok its just through the TV. I have tried changing all sorts of settings but nothing seems to work.
The only videos i can watch on my TV are the ones off YouTube, but everything else is a no go.

My Graphics card is GeForce 7600 GT with 2 DVI outputs & to connect to the TV im just using a simple DVI to VGA plug.
Any helps would be much appreciated

I have a problem in that I cannot play any videos, whether it be AVI or MPeg.
I have media player 10 (although this happened in 8 too), and DivX player. I have installed any extra codes, but I get black screen on ANY video playback.

Im running windows XP pro SP2 (same problem without a SP)

Any ideas ?

All other apps work fine, games included.

TIA,
Zace.

A:Video(any) playback problem

Have you checked your video card drivers? Can you play DVD's? What program are you using to check the codec of the file you are trying to run?

If you can play a dvd, then you should be able to play avi and mpeg files assuming you have the codec needed and that the files are proper mpeg and avi files and not hoax files. If you dont have it try Avicodec. If this can't read the file then it's a duff file. But I don't think thats the problem in your case. It will be a codec problem or a video card/driver problem. Installing to much codec can be problematic also.

Hey guys I have a problem playing videos on my hard drive.

I am 99% sure I have a codec needed for the videos.

When I play a video it is either in BLACK AND WHITE or only some color with a pinkist shadow in the video player background.

I can play video off the internet such as youtube 100% with no problems.

I have the latest video card driver, and my windows version is up to date.

Please Help, I hate not being able to play videos on my computer.

A:Video Playback Problem

Hi Pilot724..

To be honest, it does sound like a codec issue. It may be an idea to try something like K-Lite Codec Pack as they have a pretty comprehensive set for most video types. Also, Ace Mega Codecs Pack v5.93 is very good too. I have had it installed for a couple of years and I never have any problems with any video content.

I'm trying to play a tv episode through the 'Videos' app on Windows 8, but it gives me the following error:






Can't play. Make sure your computer's sound and video cards are working and have the latest drivers, then try again.

0xc00d11d1 (0x80070241)



I'm running VMWare Fusion 5.0.1 with the guest tools installed.

Running dxdiag, it says it the video driver only supports DirectX 9.1, 9.2, and 9.3. Movie trailers play fine.

I've tried increasing the VRAM from 2MB to 32MB via the vmx file, to no avail.

Any help?

Right. I have a 700Mb avi file on my PC, and a nice big lcd tv downstairs with a VGA input thingy.
I copy the avi file onto my external hard drive (It throws up an box saying 'Are you sure you want to copy this file without its properties', whatever this means). I then copy it from the external drive onto my laptop, and give it a test play to make sure it works. It does.
I go downstairs, plug the laptop into TV, using the Nvidia control panel to set the TV to display the same thing as the laptop monitor. Then I try and play the video. Media player opens, sound comes out, but no picture.
Try media player classic. No picture. I've unplugged the TV, installed the latest ffdshow, restarted, but nothing works. Since plugging into the TV, I'm unable to play any video files, they just display nothing.

Before I plugged it into the TV, I could play all video files. After, I can't get the video for any, just the sound. Plus, the playback is rather laggy.
The laptop is running SP2, using the cccp.

Thanks :)

The only video files my computer is allowing me to play is DivX files. On top of that it is only letting me play DivX files in DivX player and nothing else. When I try to play .avi, .mpg, .wmv files in WMP 11, Winamp, or Real Player I only hear audio but see no video. However, I hear audio and see video while playing a DivX file in DivX player. I believe this problem started when I upgraded to WMP 11 or up to DivX 6.8. I have uninstalled WMP 11 and went back to WMP 9 but that didn't change anything. I uninstalled DivX 6.8 and reverted back to DivX 6.6 and it worked. I could play my video files in WMP 11. That lasted for 2 weeks and then it happened again for no apparent reason. I have audio and video in DivX player but only audio in WMP 11 etc. The driver for my video card is up to date and I think I have all necessary codecs. If anybody can think of what might be wrong and have a solution for me I would really appreciate your help with this.

Thank you,
Kevin

Hi guys.

I am running an i3-2100 using built in graphics. I have the latest driver installed, as well as adobe flash, but youtube videos are not playing smoothly. This happens both in fullscreen and the normal size.

I noticed in my Sony laptop there is java, MSXML 4.0 SP2, microsoft visual c++, directx, shockwave player, and .net framework 4.0. These programs are not installed on the pc in question, because I built it myself and used a windows 7 x64 fresh install.

How can I get smooth playback?
Do I need any of these things installed? Can anyone suggest trying something else?

btw, 1080p movies in vlc play no problem.

Thanks in advance, very appreciated.

Maybe internet connection? I would say you may just want to install those programs and see if it works better. All of the programs are less than 50 megs and should take less than ten minutes to install all of them.

Hello all,

I've got a new built computer, with a brand new used 22" Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 2040u monitor (with WAY more gizmo's, gadet's, buttons, and knobs than I know what to do with! See my post in the hardware forum). My problem is this. My computer screen looks great! Huge, actually. And the colors are fine. *Until,* that is, I play a movie. Then it gets dark. I have WMP 11 installed. I can't find my PowerDVD 5 disc anywhere, so I went looking for a free DVD player, and came up with VideoLan VLC 0.8.6b. Installed it, and now the DVD's I play in addition to the mpg's I play are very dark. Color's all wrong. I do have the newest update of Divx on here (just updated today, after this problem, and didn't fix this problem.) This didn't happen 3 days ago, but that was before my monitor died. So its either my monitor that's a problem, but I doubt that cuz everything else looks just fine including movies played on MSN, or some sort of codec or something problem. So I tried uninstalling VLC, still problems. Currently that's where I've stopped.

SO, summary: New computer w/WMP 11, and new Divx and VLC no longer on, but on for awhile, just DVD's and mpgs played in WMP or VLC (while it was on) or Divx Player look dark. Anything played online is fine.

I should clarify. VLC was installed just today. Before it was installed mpg's worked fine, couldn't play DVD's...

Any thoughts anyone??

TIA

Before trying anything else, try running those with the VLC player from VideoLan -> VideoLAN - VLC: Official site - Free multimedia solutions for all OS!

That may be all that is needed.

This has been happening on and off ever since I started with Win 10 and its always very annoying .

System just hangs, no error message, no bsod, just complete freeze and loud hum.

I cant say I can remember having issues watching youtube videos, its the streaming of live content such as filmon. Sometimes I can watch filmon for days and not have the issue and then randomly it will start again. Today I was watching hypermole playing on twitch tv (live) and it just happened. Getting tired of it.
I can also report having all my video content display as a green screen after using hyper v although that may be totally unrelated.

As far as I am aware, I'm using the latest drivers for my graphics, I always try update everything. I have attached the log files as requested.

Hi m1a1t,

Welcome to the 10forums

I'm not a specialist when it comes to freeze problems, but I do have a tip (or 2 when talking about reverting back the changes)
IObit software is known for causing problems, I would highly recommend that you remove it and revert back the changes it made when it comes to drivers.
DB3 may install corrupted or the wrong drivers what may cause problems,Malwarefighter is IMHO garbage,Advanced SystemCare may cause more harm than good
About the uninstall program I can't tell you anything, because I have no experience with it and I prefer to keep it that way.
