I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello Ak-47 4 Life, my name is Rick and I work with the Windows Outreach Team. I would like to try and help but I need some additional information. What Video Card do you have installed? Second question have you gone to the Manufacture site of your Video Card and download the latest Drivers directly from them or from Sony?

For reasons unknown to me the video quality of videos downloaded from the internet or internet streams is very poor on my computer on WMP or any other media player, the contrast is also higher than my normal display, any help?
 

A:Poor video quality

Are you loading high quality videos?
If that's the case you most likely have the wrong codecs installed.
Check out www.matroska.org. Or install the VLC player, it's a player for almost any OS in existence, I believe, complete with the essential codecs (including Matroska, I think).

After video taping I notice that my videos seem to look like the video is dripping or to be streaking at the bottom of the video image if that makes any sense.

The lens is clean and clear, I use good lighting.

The camera is almost 2 years old and just recently started doing this on
new or old tapes. I have tried using the mini tape cleaners in it to clean it and there is no difference unless there is some special one that should be used?

The camera is a Samsung digital camcorder, SCD70 ntsc, mini DV.

Help.

Since installing Windows 8, the audio quality in any MP4 files is distorted and echoes.

This happens regardless of what player I use to view them (You Tube, iTunes, Media Player). If I play a professional video in You Tube it is OK.

All other types of video are fine and all other sound output is fine.

If I transfer the same video to my HTC phone the sound quality is normal.

Can anyone help please????

Hi , Im experiencing problems when transfering video from my Sony Handycam (DV) to my PC , or perhaps its better to say that the problem is with the quality of the video once burned. Whilst if connecting the camera to the TV gives great results on playback , I have found the picture quality is grainy if the video has been captured/encoded/burnt to DVD. I have used Sonys software , Nero and Roxio all with disappointing results. My PC has XP , and Im using the firewire cable that I was forced to buy as Sony didnt provide one.
Any help will be very gratefully received.

Hi friends:

I have an HP dv5-1002nr laptop. Seven days ago, I upgraded from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7. I updated all drivers, per the HP support site, and all seems to be working really good.

The only issue is when viewing downloaded or other videos that are in on my pc (no problem with online viewing or DVDs). The videos are fuzzy/with blocks, pixelated. This is especially true the bigger I make the viewing screen. Aweful.

I have done much googling, and tweaking. I've used a number of video players. Many seem to have the problem, but I've been able to get no solution.

Please help. This is really a major issue for me.

Thanks,

Hello,

I am having some problems while viewing video over the internet and also when using SKYPE (a particularly frustrating problem since we are living overseas).

I originally suspected some sort of spyware / malware and posted this request to the relevant section of the forum (my first reply is more descriptive than the original post). However, a reply from Ried (who reviewed my Hijackthis log) has my system being clean. Ried suggested I try this section of the forum.

This problem has not always been there - the PC worked fine for a year or two before things started to slow.

Grateful for any help.

Recently I got a new laptop, a Dell Inspiron 15R with Nvidia GeForce GT 525M. When I play my videos on this laptop however the video quality is poor, it is blurry and pixellated and is worse than my old laptop, on which all my videos were perfect. I thought it might be a codec problem so I have installed pretty much every codec pack under the sun but there has been no difference, videos still look poor in VLC, WMP, WMPC and Windows Media Centre. I also updated the driver for my video card but this did nothing.
Today I plugged my laptop into my tv using a VGA cable and not only is the video quality on the TV excellent but the video quality on my laptop also became better while plugged into the tv (although the video became squashed into the middle), so I am thinking that the problem may be due to my resolution? I have tried all the resolutions for my laptop but none have made any difference when the video is played in full screen, the video does not look as good as when it was plugged into my tv.
Any help would be appreciated on this matter, what did my tv do to make my laptop's video quality better, how can I make videos appear better on my laptop?
Thanks

Hey, I was just wondering if there was anyone here that could help me with this problem I am having with Adobe Premiere Pro.

I have used it to edit a movie together with MOV video files from my iPhone 3GS which are of decent quality but everytime I try to export it, the video quality is degraded significantly from the original. I have tried several different export options but none seem to do the trick.

Also, exporting with DivX just gives me an audio file with no video so I have been unable to try that.

Anyone have any ideas?

Blurry and 256 colours. Something similar happens to the desktop when I leave fullscreen from VLC or VirtualBox. That makes sense though, I guess this is some metro related memory saving process. Anyone got any ideas how I could sort this out?

My son was given a laptop for his birthday last year and it has a cracked hinge. 
After much research I've learned that this is a very common problem in this laptop. We called customer care center 2 different times and stayed on the phone for at least an hour each time. We were told a box would be sent out for repair. His laptop was still under the 1yr warranty at this time. 
Today, we called again to get some answers and they have no record of us calling. (Surprise, surprise!) We still have not received any return box and his warranty has now, of course, expired.

hello, you probably get this all the time, but some pictures i download from the net are small, then when i want to blow them up to a viewable size, they are way too blurry. if i wan to print them out, will they still be blurry, and if so, are there any really good programs that would create a sharper, more focused picture.
 

A:poor quality

Most photos on the Internet are optimized to be as small a number as possible of bytes of information and still look acceptable on your monitor.

The reason is to minimize download times for web pages. So most pictures from the web are not suitable for enlarging or printing.

You can right click a picture and click on properties to see how many KB the picture is before you even download it. By experimenting you can up with a number you feel will enlarge enough for your purposes and make acceptable prints.

I include many pictures from the web in greeting cards I create. As long as you keep them small they can be fine for that purpose.

I downgraded from Vista to XP a couple months ago, but haven't had the oppurtunity to play with my webcam/audio feature until now. I'm on an Acer Aspire 5630 Laptop, with a built in cam and mic.

I had a great audio quality on Vista. Now suddenly my audio quality is very poor... not so much in the fact that it doesn't sound good, but that you can barely hear it.

Again, it worked great on Vista.

Now I've tried playing with all the settings... I've spent a lot of time tweaking things, but nothing fixes it. I think it may have something to do with the gay RealTek Audio Manager (which I'd like to get rid of, but don't know how). My audio quality is just very, very muffled and low-toned.

In Master Volume, I am using advanced settings and I have everything turned up full blast. In the mic's advanced settings, Bass and Treble are both set to as low as possible, and it doesn't allow me to move them or change them.
As for drivers, according to driveragent.com, these are the only drivers which are out of date or missing:

I have also tried printing from the Cannon software that came with the camera, but the results are the same. Minolta tech support is now saying that this may be the best I can expect.

I know absolutely nothing about Audio. I know that my speaker set up has a subwoofer. That it connects to the back of my computer through a black, green and orange 3-way spliced cable. I know I took the computer apart to move it to a new case and that's when it started. I use the on board sound card to an ASUS A8N32 SLI board with the proper sound driver.

The assistance feature for the less informed, like myself, says there's something wrong with my green cable. There doesn't seem to be any tears or weak connections.

As for the problem itself. Sound is mildly distorted. There's severe bass tones? where there shouldn't be. Half of the sounds from 3d games like Oblivion, do not register.
 

A:Poor quality Audio

You should have a Realtek Aux console. Start/Programs/Realtek===> some drop down menu. In there you can set-up your speakers for 2.1, 3.1, 5.1 etc. also there should be a graphics equalizer where you can set base or there can be a tab just for setting how much sub-woofer (volume and cross-over frequency) I set my cross-over at 60Hz.

You need to tell it how many speakers you have, then set your sub-woofer and you should be ok.

Hi people,

im sure someone on here with their infinate wisdom will have an answer for this.

I recently just bought a new 40" samsung LCD and thought I would utilise my old PC as a media centre pc. It has a 2.6Ghz Pentium, 1GB Ram, 200GB HDD and a 128MB 6600GT. I was going to buy a nice new sound card to get digital, but I dont see the point if the video quality is poor.

Now, on media centre in the setup, it plays a clip to set your monitor up and the quality is perfect. However, when I play a dvd directly from the dvd player or HDD,.. the quality is degraded to say the least.

I've downloaded my graphics drivers and various codecs, divx, xdvd, and a few others but it doesnt seem to have made any difference.

Does anyone know why this may be?

Thank you.

A:Poor Wi-Fi Speaker quality with CB#-111

Sounds like it could be a setting in Chrome OS. I read on another forum users reporting that turning off Ok Google helped. Can you try this and see if it helps?
 

Open Google Chrome.
In the top right corner, click the Chrome menu  > Settings.
In the "Search" section, check Enable "Ok Google" to start a voice search. To turn Ok Google off, uncheck this box.
If you're on a Chromebook, you may be asked to turn on the Voice & Audio Activity setting.
Under Enable "Ok Google" to start a voice search, you'll see where you can use "Ok Google." In Chrome, it's usually on google.com or a new tab. On some Chromebooks, you can say "Ok Google" from any page if your screen is on and unlocked.

hello, very new here. i recently was given a cannon BJC-4100 printer. after purchasing new cartridges and replacing them i am still having trouble.

i can get it to print things, color is fine. however the black is very light and appears as it would when the cartridge needs to be replaced.

i tried to preform a nozzle check and preform a cleaning, but neither one will print. after a few minutes i get an error.

any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks
 

A:poor printer quality

Redbud,

Check the print quality setting of your printer. If it is set on draft quality you can get the results you are describing. Hope that helps.

For me... when I'm at the near end of my song it just stops for two seconds and makes a crackling sound. What is this? What does it mean? How can I stop it from happening?

A:Poor sound quality

Welcome
The fist step is to make sure that your audio driver is up to date and not corrupted
Go to search
type device manager
In device manger look for any yellow markers
Then make sure audio driver is up to date.

I really hope someone here can offer me some help with this!

I've built a small htpc with a HauupaugePVR 500 Tunerand connected it (via my motherboards HDMI) to a Sony 40w4500 LCD.

The tuner is connected to my SAGAM set top box via a SCART to phono adaptor with s-video. There's no other way to connect the two together as my stb only has the following connections,
Digital tv broadcasts via a cable Sagam stb with the following connections,
Audio - S/PDIF, Right and Left audio connectors.
Video - HDMI connector, Y, Pb and Pr?
The only other connections available are 2 Scart sockets one labeled TV and the other VCR.

I've got a s-video lead plugged into the tuner card and the end of it plugged into the adaptor and the then the adaptor into the stb tv SCART socket.

With all this done I'm geting a pictures but is pretty bad. Quite fuzzy with faceting and stripy looking. When I use the phono video input it improves but it's still not a patch on simply connecting the cable box straight to the tv via scart.

Could someone tell me why my picture is so poor? Surely it's not supposed to be like this? The resolution I'm using is 1280x720 and I'm running Vista Ultimate. Could it be that the signal from my cable supplier is digital or something?

Any help greatly appreciated.

I have the Beats by Dre audio software/hardware on my laptop and it sounded great but all of a sudden, some months ago, the audio became very poor. It's quite tinny and very quiet. I feel like it may have occurred after a system/OS update but can;t say for sure. I constantly connect it to a bluetooth speake ror use headphones but it's becoming a pain. I should've dealt with it right away but didn't. any ideas?

My user says I'm a "Windows 7 Professional" but I've got a Windows Vista Home Basic too and I was wondering if any of you guys can tell me how to get rid of this "Audio Problem" that I'm having . First, I'm listening to the song that's playing like it should . Second, it's at the end of the song . Third, it stops and makes a crackling sound and goes at the end of the song . If you know what I'm talking about, please tell me how to stop this nonsense .

A:I'm Having Poor Audio Quality!

How about more details?

On 1 song or all songs?

Always at the same point in a given song?

On mp3s, waves, or any file format?

Is this a recent development?

What player are you using?

If it's a recent development and everything was fine at one time, how has your PC been altered since everything was fine? New hardware? Software updates?

Etcetera. More info needed.

I get very poor picture quality while streaming NBC and Netflix: buffeting and a jerky, skipping picture. I don't have these issues with UK based channels. I use a VPN. Do these networks use different formats? Could I solve the problem with a new wifi router?
 
I have W10 installed. My computer an ASUS notebook K53E, 2 x 2.10Ghz, i3(2nd gen), cache 3MB, 1366 x 768 pixel, 330GB.
 
My wifi router is a Cisco EPC3925. I have been thinking about upgrading my router anyway, so even some general information would be good. I use my computer in the same room as the router (mostly less than 10 feet away) without any other devices connected simultaneously.

just got a refurbished dell latitude d620, it is upgraded to win 7, since dell doesnt make a win 7 audio driver for this model the geniric microsoft audio driver was used, the sound works but sounds terrible, static, noise, choppy, i tried vista, xp and sigmatel hd drivers, they all work but sound the same, any ideas?

A:poor audio quality

Your system is not compatible for Windows 7 since there is no audio drivers for Windows 7. If the system is compatible with Windows Vista or XP I recommend sticking with that.

Ive been downloading videos from youtube and converting them using Riva flv encoder,but the quality of the video after encoding is very poor.Am I doing something wrong or are there any settings I need to tweak.Cheers

A:Poor Quality Videos

those videos usually arent the greatest in quality to begin with, you are compressing/rendering/encoding the video again which will remove a little bit of quality everytime, even at higher settings. I'm sorry I have never used the same program you are using, and instead just giving a basics of what I have found to be true when I have made my videos

Hi, I've recently bought a new Dell Dimension 9150 media center with an LCD monitor. When I play a dvd the picture quality is poor. Its like watching old VHS at best. Very dissapointing !

I'm relatively new to computers and so I dont understand all of the technical stuff too well but I'm getting there.

The machine came with an Nvidia GeForce 7300LE card. 2.8ghz Viiv pentium D 920 dual core 1 gig ram.

Any advice very much appreciated.
