Problem With Viewing Streaming Audio and Video on WMP in Browser

Q: Problem With Viewing Streaming Audio and Video on WMP in Browser

I cannot view streaming audio and video files from webpages. i have the problem on both my firefox and internet explorer. On internet explorer it just shows a small red "X" on the side. On firefox it just shows a blank space where the media player was supposed to be embedded. My Media player works fine for playing all my offline media but it wont play any online media from other webpages. Can anybody help me with this.

Preferred Solution: Problem With Viewing Streaming Audio and Video on WMP in Browser

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.)

I tried to do as much research as possible so I don't sound too dumb, but I'm pretty sure I'm missing something obvious. I have an old Intel motherboard in venerable CPU tower. My OS is Windows 2000 Professional, and I recently abandoned Explorer for Firefox.

The trouble is this: although I have plenty of memory on the hard drive (10gig), flash players will routinely dump the audio halfway through a segment. Rarely will the thing play through. The audio loss is accompanied by loading loss. Even if I've let the video load, the audio kicks out and it will stream silently for two seconds and pause itself. If I drag the bar a few minutes down the line, it will still be silent, and stream there for two seconds and pause itself.

I have no plug-ins in Firefox. If it's a system conflict, I don't know how to isolate it. I do have Belarc, Aida32, Total Commander, and Security Task Manager. Perhaps they hold answers. I've also seen that virtual memory plays a role, and I'm no longer sure where to set that allowable limit, but I believe it's in line.

Interestingly, pure audio streams never poop out like that. I'm addicted to old time radio, and they work beautifully. It leads me to believe there's some system conflict, but I'm the patient, not a doctor.

Incidentally, the reason I ditched IE for Firefox was that IE tended to take 95-99% of memory usage. Firefox however does the same thing. My systems clean, so sayeth King Nor... Read more

I'm not sure if this falls exactly into the right catagory, but (in WinXP) whenever I try to open imbedded media (vid or aud), my satellite disconnects, claiming it was disconnected by a remote party... I do have a home LAN, but the person using the other computer claims they did not do it, and I have tested it several times, all with the same result. I have a DirecPC dish, the old grey type, running the V3.0.0.70 software, if anyone needs it. I also ran NAV, but it says I'm clean, and WMP says I have 'the latest version of Windows Media Player and all its components.'

Can anyone give me some help?

I have a relatively new (less than 6 months old) HP Pavillion, AMD Athlon x27550 - Dual core-processer, NVIDIA GeForce 9100 integrated graphics that claims to be the perfect PC for digital photos, videos and music...for the last 3 months or so whenever I play a DVD or try and watch streaming videos from netflix type of sites after about 15 minutes the picture slows down to a slow motion speed (almost frame by frame) but the audio stays working normally.
I thought I may have a virus so ran full scan with Microsoft Security, and it shows no sign of a virus. The only thing that seems to help it somewhat is running very frequent spybot checks and cleaning my c drive with C cleaner (several times a day is what it takes actually); and even then it has problems.

I would very much appreciate any information or feedback I can get; I know very little about computers, but I am a fast learner and would appreciate any help I can get. Thanks so much in advance!!!

I sincerely hope that someone can help me with this problem as it is beginning to drive me crazy. When viewing embedded video (ie: YouTube,Google videos, etc.), I'm getting no audio. My audio works fine in other ways, including streaming video that plays in WMP, or when I listen to mp3 files, etc., but just not when playing streaming video from embedded links.

I've searched the internet and tried many 'solutions', like removing and re-installing Flashplayer, making sure that the 'allow third party content to store data on your computer' checkbox was checked in the Flash settings, and I checked that my registry included 'wavemapper' with a set value of 'msacm32.drv'. I uninstalled and reinstalled K-Lite codec pack, uninstalled and reinstalled ffdshow, and ensured that the registry value of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\NodeCLSIDs\{95037DA1-6ED9-4B27-8CFF-9AD3DFB0B2F2 was set to 0.

Sadly and frustratingly, none of these things have worked. Any advice would be greatly valued and appreciated.

Thank you.



I hope someone can help me. I use, Primarily, Firefox for all my internet needs however this problem happens with IE as well. I will go to a radio station website to listen to their on-line stream. (http://wsbradio.com/) Press the listen button and almost as soon as the Streamaudio.com pop-up window comes up it freezes then crashes the browser. Everything is up to date (even the bios).

Now when I go to stations that use, say Winamp, aka, live365.com I have no problems.. Any Ideas?

Hello. I am trying to watch live video on nbcolympics.com. When I load a video, the advertisement comes up and plays, then when the streaming loads, the video goes black, but I can hear the audio .

Any suggestions? I'm running an intel i7 on Win7 ATI Mobility Radeon HD 58XX graphics card. I have tried upgrading my drivers, to no avail...

A:Solved: Streaming Video - Audio, no Video

I found the solution on another website - disabling hardware acceleration by right clicking on the video and going to 'settings' resolves this issue. Then the browser needs to be restarted.

Apparently its a fairly common problem with the current Flash build.

Hi everyone. I have a large iTunes collection and also a ripped DVD collection on my external hard drive. I understand that, with the right hardware, it is possible to stream this to either my stereo or my TV.

Currently when I want to watch a DVD I take my laptop, connect it to my TV through VGA and then watch through media player.

I'm interested in the option of doing this wirelessly, but am not sure what hardware I need. Ideally I'd like to be able to use my wireless network to stream video from my laptop to any TV in my house, and audio to any TV or to my stereo system.

I guess it's lazy, but otherwise I have to unplug my printer, external hard disk etc. and move it around the house all the time and I'd like to avoid doing that if possible.

have you tried deleting your cookies and temporary internet files? windows allocates a certain amount of space to the browser for downloaded internet files, i suspect this space has been filled, think of it like an overflowing bin in your front room, if you try to fill it too much, it will just end up all over the floor.

to delete the temporary files, just find the (internet)options within the tools dropdown menu on all browsers, there will be something saying cookies or temporary internet files in there and click remove/delete files.

I've got an interesting problem.

I don't have audio for streaming videos on any video on any website (Youtube, etc.) using any browser (IE7, Opera, FF, Avant, Safari).

I have XP SP3. I recently started having these problems after not having used the computer in over 2 months.

My speakers (Logitech Z5300) and my sound card (Onboard on MSI 650i SLI-FI motherboard) are all working properly. The audio works with files ON my computer, so games and movies work. All software (Flash, shockwave, etc) have the latest updates.

The only solution I know to this problem is to reformat and reinstall everything, but I don't have that kind of time. I have run out of ideas ...


One of the onboard sound jacks was faulty (green jack for front speakers). I simply switched the jack (from green to teal) and used provided software (from MSI) to configure the output for front speakers.

I performed a couple of google searches trying to find out how to prevent streaming audio/video on our network. Unfortunately, it seems like most of these streaming audio/video formats use random ports, so blocking ports won't work. Can anyone recommend a way (without using a proxy server) to prevent users from accessing streaming audio/video within our network?

This is from WMP 11. The sites are in arabic, and I don't currently have any links.

A:Streaming video/audio issue.

Some streaming videos only offer video without any sound. In that case, the volume should be greyed out.

If you're supposed to have sound but it doesn't work, perhaps a codec pack would help, like the K-Lite Codec Pack 4.7.5.

What exact pages don't work/or what player are they using? YouTube is "streaming" video, so obviously "streaming" video is working.

Most likely, whatever player is used on the page(s) that don't work, needs to be updated or reinstalled.

My computer started buffering streaming video and audio that it didn't do before. The internet connection speed is the same as before. I checked the download speed on speedtest.net and it shows 6 Mbps that I am supposed to receive. I did a ping test at pingtest.net and the ping is 64ms and jitter 4ms. It gave a line quality of B*. These results are shown in the attached image.

The computer is Gateway DX4320-02e with 6 GB memory running Windows 7. It has integrated ATI Radeon HD 4250 graphics. I connect to my home router through a TP-Link Wireless USB adapter. I checked the adapter is working properly by using it on a different computer - a laptop and placing the laptop at the same location as my Gateway desktop in the house, and saw that the same streaming video that buffers on my desktop runs fine on the laptop. This tells me that wifi signal strength and wireless adapter are not the problem. Video saved on my desktop's hard drive runs fine. I have the same problem with streaming music. Songs saved on my hard drive play normally but streaming from the internet buffers.

Can I conclude the problem is occurring in my desktop computer? What can I do to find the problem and correct it?

Not sure where this belongs, since it is audio thought here, feel free to move to proper location if there is one...

This has been an issue for me for a long while now and still cant figure out why, I have gone and built another PC with a better sound card but still cannot get any audio.

I have no problems with audio when I am streaming video from a file, but if it is live streaming I get video but no audio, sorry it seems repetitive but just drives me nuts.

I have a hauppauge1600 PCI Tuner card, and I had no problem with the video, nor with the audio when I was in Media Center, and when streaming a video file, I have tried using some streaming programs and havent had any luck, have used: webcamax, unreal, broadcam, adobe flash video encoder, windows media encoder, video lan.... and nothing plays audio

I have also installed codecs, sharks codecs and even bought another tuner card Kworld PCI ATSC Hybrid HDTV Card (PC150-U). Even got a new Creative X-Fi extreme sound card thinking that was going to fix it, but noooooooo....

at wits end at the moment, and about to shelve this again for a few weeks, but this is last resort, can someone point me in right direction or at least help me trouble shoot?


A:Have video but no Audio, when streaming live

Guess no one wants to mess with this one, and I'll have to shelve it yet once again. I took out the X-Fi sound card, and still have no audio when streaming live, even updated the RealTek Hd audio drivers to latest. so the onboard dont work either on live streaming.

Hello All,

A bit of a long shot. I have a habit of keeping lots of live music on my Windows 7 Mediacenter as avi video files. I'd really like to be able to stream it to my Wireless Music Player (a Revo Mondo) over UPnP. But being an Audio device, none of the avi files are visible to it.

Has anyone found anyway of getting MCE to transcode the video on the fly to extract the audio and just stream that?

Thanks in advance!


A:Streaming Video as Audio over UPnP


I don't know if this is what you're looking for but I use a very simple utility to convert Video files to Audio.

It is called Any video Converter and you can get it here: Free Video Converter - Any Video Converter Free Version - convert video to any formats, avi to MPEG, avi to MP4, flv to MPG

This past month I built a new PC with the following brand new components:

CPU: Intel Core i5
GPX: Gainward nVidia GeForce GTX 260 GS 896MB
RAM: Corsair TwinX XMS3, DDR3 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 9-9-9-24 1.5v
PSU: Corsair 650VX

and these parts brought over from my old PC:

Hard Drive: Western Digital 1TB Caviar Black (1 Month old, 2 Partitions 200gb/800gb)
Generic Sony DVD Optical Drive
USB Card Reader/Floppy Drive Combo

I initially had some problems with the following BSODs that were occuring 2-3 minutes after boot:

1a, 50, 7f, 7f, 50, 1a
I was advised it was a RAM issue and increasing the voltage should fix it, so I then increased the voltage on my RAM from 1.5v to 1.64v (the top of the safe zone), and left everything else default.
As it is currently, the machine runs perfectly fine, I can play games (including system intensive ones) and watch HD videos off of my hard drive. The problems start when I want to watch streaming video on-line.
Typically within 10-20 minutes of watching streaming video i'll get a BSOD with one of the following codes:

1a, 1e, 7f

Everywhere i've googled points towards a Hardware problem, probably RAM, and so I ran both sticks together and individually through the Microsoft Memory Diagnostics Tool and MemTest86+, MemTest86+ I ran for 12 hours on each stick.

Hi there, recently I had messed with some codecs and stuff to try and watch a certain DVD that was being difficult. I messed up some codecs and such in the process and I couldnt see any streaming video and if I played any streaming audio, the sound would just be a scratch sound, that regardless of how high or low I turned the player's volume, would remain at the same level of "loudness".

So I decided to reformat and just reinstall the drivers from the original discs. I did that, and now I am still having the same problem.

I am using SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio drivers and an ASUS P5NSLI Motherboard.
I can post my system specs if you would like, I just dont know where to go from this point, I was sure a reformat would fix the problem.

Thanks in advance.

I recently bought a Intel 520 series 240GB SSD. I took out my old HDD and installed windows 7 ultimate 64bit fresh on the SSD. It was going fine until I would try and play a streaming video from sites like NHL(dot)com or even listen to a podcast from a audio streaming site. After a couple seconds of watching a video my PC freezes and gives me a BSOD and I have to restart. I have the latest drivers for my video card and even my sound card. I will attach my BSOD info files. Could it be a bad SSD? I bought intel because of their reliability, hopefully I don't need to return it

Also, I tried reinstalling Windows 7 again and I have the same issue. I also don't think it is my GPU because I can play games fine.

Got a new machine, and installed it fresh windows 8.0 -> 8.1 download/upgraded. I've done what I felt were the basics. Ensured all drivers to knowledge are good, performed work on it. When I seem to be playing games in fullscreen mode, being captured to a streaming software that utilizes an OpenGL capture with a C920 webcam displayed, it will work fine some nights, other nights it will crash repeatedly. Scenarios can be the same. Same game, same activities.

Temperatures of the system are seemingly stable from what I can see. The culprits I'm concerned about are:
- Drivers (Obviously... just don't know the specific knowhow to isolate it from the dump files, would love a point to a direction on how to analyze them properly)
- Potential issue with C920 Logitech webcam
- Potential issue with 3rd sound card plugged in via USB
- Potential issue with video card, but it seems the drivers are up to date.

I've only had this system for about a month. But the bluescreen going down interrupts shows I'm putting on. Instead of blindly learning at a slow pace, I figured I'd try here first.

Thanks and looking forward to working with you and can be eternally grateful for a direction:

A:BSOD - 8.1 - When Streaming video/Audio with new machine

I have long suspected stability problems with USB sound cards, but there's just not enough evidence to support me saying that they are the cause of the BSOD's.

Your UEFI/BIOS dates from 2012. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the UEFI/BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard. If possible, use the "inside Windows" flash mechanism (if your OEM provides one) - that is much more forgiving than the traditional (floppy drive) flash method.

This device is disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?

Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network) BTH\MS_BTHPAN\7&2FD44406&0&2 This device is disabled.

Please re-enable the device and update it's drivers to the latest, Win8.1 compatible version. If you'd like, feel free to disable it again AFTER it has been updated.

You have a large number of BSOD's that all seem to be related to hardware problems. Some of the memory dumps even specify hardware as the cause of the BSOD. Please start with these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for ... Read more

Hi, I just retired my windows XP preparing for what will come this april. Everything is fine and I like 7 well enough I suppose, but since I installed it I have had stuttering issues with running streaming video and some audio. I have tried using my on board sound with the latest drivers, no love... I even bought an although outdated and out of service but good enough sound card just for this win 7 an audigy se 24bit, fantastic sound for 17 dollars. So the problem is not related to these two different sound hardware sources. I did turn off windows defender since I don't need it, I turned up system power to high performance and yet there is no change in this stuttering problem. I watch video on line courses and it is a terrible distraction to have to deal with such a simple problem that for some reason seems to have no fix. Has anyone any suggestions that might point to something I've missed in win 7. I realize this is not considered a fast machine but it is fast enough for what I did in XP and it should be fast enough for another 32 bit system. Of course there is too much bloat in win 7 and I am still learning what I should turn off or disable, this is just marketing and causing more issues for people that just want a complete functional operating system without all the bloat.


A:Streaming audio stutter in video while buffering

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

If flash is involved, try turning off hardware acceleration:
Adobe Community: How do I disable or enable hardware acceleration?

You might also want to test using Chrome.

BTW, Malwarebytes Pro is not an antivirus tool.

This is my first here. So please be gentile.

I seem to have an irritating sound reverberation in the audio whenever I play a buffered video off the internet.(sounds like in a tunnel). I am on a voice chat IM. So I thought I might be getting some kind of audio or electronic feedback through the system. I checked to see if the mic was off. Also went into Sounds and Media in the control panel of Windows and turned down or off all non essentials that weren't being used. Like MIDI, AUX, LINE and Phone. Didn't work. Never tried to turn off the mic in Sounds and Media because I shriek at the thought of having to go in and turn the mic on every time I voice chat. And the mic IS externally turned off. Any ideas out there?

I use Windows Me V4.90.3000 , IE V5.5, Creative Sound Blaster PCI 16, Conexant SoftK56 Data Fax Voice Speakerphone Modem.

I've noticed that there are no ansers from anyone. Maybe audio reverberation is just a nature of the beast when it comes to streaming video. Let me ask this. Done anyone ells have the same problem with streaming video? Maybe there is nothing there that can be fixed.

I cannot hear audio when streaming video content is being played eg. YouTube videos and webinar videos. I can see the video.

I use Windows Vista Home Premium SP2. HP Notebook, Core2Duo, 2GHz, 3GB RAM.

Further, I also checked through Help & Support on my system, and found that when I go to Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound > Sounds tab, and select any of the programs listed in that tab eg. Asterisk, Critical Battery Alarm, Critical Stop and so on, I cannot hear the test sound when I click on the "Test" icon.

My speakers are turned up full volume. My default sound device is Speakers & Dual Headphones (IDT High Definition Audio Codec), and the message on the tab says "This device is working properly". Other sound devices like Digital Output Device (HDMI) and SPDIF Digital Out via HP Dock are also said to be working properly on the relevant tab.

I can hear audio CDs, downloaded songs from the net, gtalk conversations. I can also record voice and playback without a problem.


A:[SOLVED] Cannot hear audio on streaming video

Right click the volume Icon in the System Tray and choose Open the Volume Mixer. Make sure Applications and System Sounds is not muted and the Volume is all the way up.

A little bit ago some streaming video stopped working. Break.com and Youtube most videos work. No videos on yahoo video and some other sites work. They just show a blank black box and never loads or plays. When I go to yahoo video and try to play a video, I right click on the video and choose "Settings..." it brings up an adobe flash player menu that is frozen and I cannot choose anything on that menu. I just went to the Adobe website and installed the latest versions of Adobe Flash player, Shockwave player, Java player. I set my explorer security from medium high down to just medium. I deleted "Wmsdkns.xml" for media player to reset it. I also changed out my video cards (I have two different cards, a geforce and a radeon).None of these solutions worked. My laptop, work computer, and wifes computer all play these videos. This is just happening to my home desktop. Any other ideas on what is happening?This happens on both Windows Explorer and Firefox

A:Solved: Browser Streaming video does not work

Fixed, I went to Adobe settings manager site and changed the local storage from 0kb to 100kb and now all streaming video works.

A:browser/streaming video/ network probrem


Read other 5 answers

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?

Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 3

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.

Streaming audio/video hiccups, burps, rebuffers

quick overview:
running XP, Verizon DSL 1500/384, Westell 327 modem, Kerio Firewall

whenever i run any streaming audio or video, whether it's with WinAmp, Real Player, or Media Player 10 it constantly skips and rebuffers. you can pretty much forget trying to listen to a whole song the whole way through without it doing this, which makes it pretty damn annoying!!!!

DSL speeds are good and constant. but i do notice that the "internet" light on my Westell is always blinking when going from page to page or site to site a lot. is this natural or should it be just lit as a constant. if it is blinking is there a problem with what is getting through? and could that be what is causing the hiccups of the audio.

i don't see anything out of the ordinary at as far as settings go.

i'm lost and just plain annoyed!! what's the use of having a broadband connection if you can't enjoy audio and video streams.

any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

A:Streaming audio/video hiccups, burps, rebuffers still!!

gee...i guess i'm the only person in the world with streaming audio problems and rebuffering.

So here's my problem

When I watch YouTube videos I get random stutters where the sound skips. The image doesn't seem to freeze though, just the sound

I also get issues with the sound streaming music online, where it pauses for a second and stutters even though it's not buffering.

When this happens, NT Kernel & System shoots up in task manager and uses more CPU than the browser. This by the way happens in every browser, IE, Chrome or Firefox.

It doesn't happen when playing music in iTunes or watching videos from my hard drive.

That being said I'm not posting about a buffering type stutter, I am aware of that and this is not it. This is like basically suddenly the computer has a big spike in memory or cpu usage and the video/sound clip stutters for a sec. But it happens often enough to be very annoying. In a 15 min YouTube clip it happened 10 times.

I have reinstalled my IDT High Definition Codec and my Intel HD Graphics 4000 driver, but still the problem persists.

Any thoughts of what I can do?

A:Sound stutters when streaming video or audio online.

Try this test: Start a Youtube video and immediately hit the pause button. Watch the movement of the red progress bar until it fully loads the video. This obviously eliminates any buffering issues if the problem is still there when you try to play the video this way. You might also want to do a speed test on you internet connection. Here are my results:

Now, I know you are convinced that it is absolutely not a buffering issue and you have done nice testing to that end; however, I would still try the tests as described above. Good luck.

My dell 4500s has choppy streaming video playback and dropped audio
in full screen mode when playing video from fox.com or hulu.com
When I play in the small window mode the playback is fine so I tried lowering my screen resolution from 1680x1050 to 800x600 then played
video in full screen mode with no problem other then incorrect aspect ratio.

I believe I have most of the latest dell drivers installed and did a speed test
2480 kb/s way faster than recommended by fox

My native res. is 1680x1050 for Samsung sm 2232bw .
