Issues with streaming video websites

Q: Issues with streaming video websites

Hello! To keep it long story short, when using websites to stream videos with a friend it lags on my end which makes the video skip around and overall do other unpleasant things. This lag is not present when I watch videos with myself, and this happens on both firefox and chrome. I used to be able to stream without any problems, but this has been happening for atleast a good month or 3 now and I haven't done anything except for switch which browser I use. I've tried cleaning my web browser, cleaning up my computer, switching from wireless to wired internet, etc. My notebook is currently wired to a modem that is hooked up to the "family" computer, a desktop using windows 7.
A list of streaming websites I use and the symptoms I experience are
watch2gether.com and mycircle.com - Video pauses without me touching anything. When I sent a message in chat, it doesn't appear until seconds later.
watch2gther.com only - Chat "refreshes" itself (i.e. reloads everything said).
mycircle.com - Getting "sync aborted" messages. When I refresh the page the only thing that loads is the top banner and a blank chat.

I have e-mailed mycircle.com about what was going on, they said
The problem you describe seems to be linked to a saturation of the memory used by the processes of your browser while using mycircle.Click to expand...

I don't know what that means though and google searching didn't help.

I was wondering if there was anything I could do to solve this or atleast make most of the lag go away.

Preferred Solution: Issues with streaming video websites

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.)

Hey there. I have a problem with all of my browsers, they won't work, I have to disconnect my internet connection and reconnect so they work again (but that's only for like 5-10 minutes, because they will stop working again). Also, when I go to youtube videos or other streaming websites videos, the streaming loads 100% in just a second (before I had viruses it would load as the video was playing), and the video stops randomly, after 5-10-15 seconds. Also, when trying to connect to a VPS it doesn't work. Team viewer doesn't work either. But other applications like Skype, Yahoo Messenger work perfectly. Hope you can help me

I have for the last four days been experiencing some extremely slow video streaming problems with all website involving flash (netflix, youtube, hulu, etc.). The video will play for about 2 minutes and then stop, then play again for 2 minutes, then stop. Buffering is extremely slow, even with my network operating at the same speed. This problem started happening when adobe flash updated to version 10.3.181.26.

I went through a series of steps I will describe below.

Here is a description of my system:
ASUS UL50AT Notebook
Windows 7 64 bit
Mobile Intel (R) Series 4 Express Chipset - with latest driver 8.15.10.2302 (2/11/11) - 1 GB
Adobe Flash version 10.3.181.34 (updated)
2.52 Mbps download, 1.52 Mbps upload speed (AT&T DSL)
Firefox 5.0 and IE 9.0.8112.1611
2GB RAM (only about 10% used during heavy internet use)

I started out by cleaning my cache and registry. I did so on firefox cleaning out everything, then went on my Registry Mechanic and did the same thing. Didn't fix it.

I then updated my graphics card driver to the latest version (as in above). It is surprising to me that their latest driver is from 2/11/11, but that was the latest they had.

I tried using IE instead of firefox with netflix, hulu, and youtube. Got the same issue.

I tried streaming video without my wireless card, going directly through my router via ethernet cable. Video streaming issues persisted. Also did a speed test and got same results as with wi... Read more

Hello everyone. Thanks for taking time to read this, I really appreciate it.

So, here's how it goes. All of a sudden, I've been having strange video streaming issues with my laptop. I've had it for about eight months now, and everything has always worked just fine. Now, when going to places like Youtube, Hulu, Comedy Central, Megavideo etc, the buffering is just not happening well at all. I could watch 90 minute videos in 720p on Youtube and would never have an issue. I've tested the video in IE (ugh) and it all seems to be working fine. But I can't go back to IE. I just can't stand it. I've gotten spoiled with AdBlock and I can never go back. (Tested with AdBlock uninstalled as well, with no luck.)

So far I've uninstalled and reinstalled Flash and Firefox. Reset my computer, and router. Cleared cache, temp files, history. I am fully optimized with zero viruses or spyware of any kind. Always defrag-ed and all that maintenance jazz.

Win 7 Home Premium 64bit
1.6 Dual Core Pentium
Nvidia Geforce 410 or 420 laptop card or some such nonsense
4gig RAM

Any advice would be wonderful. Thank you for your time.

Just for the sake of it - test the videos in Chrome too and see if you have the same problem.

Hi guys,

This is my first post on this forum and it looks like a ocean of knowledge, which is what I've been looking for.

I've have an issue with a friends PC that I said I would look into for him.

Basically he can open video files mpeg, avi, mov etc... when loading them from his hdd but as soon as he goes online to say bbci player, youtube, myspace etc he cannot view the video and his PC locks up and you have to pull the power to restart as task manager won't open to close the browser.

He's tried explorer and mozilla but the problem appears on both browsers.

Strange thing is if the stream is set to open with mediaplayer it runs fine, so it's leading me to believe that it's a codec issue.

I've set default player as mediaplayer but still BBCi player won't I've sorted him out with the lastest Divx and drivers/firmware versions for all hardware.

I know youtube uses a flash player so is there a specific codec for media player to run flash streams?

All comments welcome as I'm starting to rn out of ideas.

Thanks for reading.
 

A:Streaming video issues

Firstly run IE Reset (I know it's both, but please follow the steps)
How to use Reset Internet Explorer Settings (RIES)

Then CCleaner

Then to go to http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/flash/trigger/en/3/index.html and install the latest Flash Player

Then update your Java

Then run the defaults on your personal Firewall (or uninstall, for the moment)
Also confirm you don't have another background pogram running like Spybots S&D

Then (after a restart or two) try the video pages again

Still faulty?

Hi guys,

Not sure if this is the place to post this issue but here goes:

When i try to watch videos (streaming from websites) the video and sound are in sync with each other. However after about 15 minutes in, they start to get out of sync and it gets progressively worse as time goes on. (The sound comes through about 2-3 seconds before the video). Is there anything i can do about this problem? i'm fairly sure my laptop is up to the challenge as it is a brand new Dell Inspiron with dual-core processor running Vista.

Any Suggestions would be appreciated.

Howdy and Hey, I recently upgraded to WMP 10 , since doing so I have lost the ability to watch videos on the web. I can watch the ads before the video but when it starts the video just goes " buffering 00/100% " never plays buffers for about 2 minutes, with no increase in percentage, then flips to "playing 0:00/ 4:28" , but never plays anything. Black screen and no audio. If anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate it. I have tried numerous times with firewall turned off anti-virus shut down and everstuff, no dice!

Go into tools then options and then click on the performance tab. Then select Buffer 5 seconds of content and see if that helps.

This is a bit of a complicated issue, and I'll admit I'm over my head on this one. I have a Gateway laptop running Vista SP1 that is connected to my home wireless network. The wireless connection will work great....except when I try to stream any video. Once I stream video, within 10-15 minutes of the video starting my wireless connection will go from Connected to Limited or No Connectivity. If I am doing anything else on the web, be it reading web pages, streaming audio, or anything else that does NOT involve video I will stay connected.

Here's where things get stranger, when I go into Network & Sharing Center to try to repair the connection, I'm unable to do so. If I try to disconnect from the network, Network & Sharing Center will stop responding and cause Windows Explorer to crash. Checking the culprit of the crash I noted that svchost.exe is causing the system to crash. Once Windows Explorer restarts, I'm able to use the computer normally, except when I try to get back into Network & Sharing Center, Windows Explorer will stop responding and crash. The only way I can resolve this is to restart the computer.

I originally thought that this was an issue to a recent Windows Update, so I performed a System Restore to before the updates, which did not resolve the issue. I'll be happy to provide any more information if asked later on, and any advice would be helpful.

Hi,
At first I'd like to apologize for my bad english

I got a lot of BSOD for the past 2 months.
It mostly happens when I watch youtube videos, I got some also when installing the Planetside 2 beta via the launcher.

I've also noticed my computer makes more noice than it used to make. The sound seems to come from the cpu.

I've got problem to boot my computer sometimes, it will boot but the screen will remain off (yellow led).
SOmetimes it starts to make a lot of beeps and when I try to boot it, and I have to power the computer off and then on to make it boot again.
I've read my dump files with whocrashed and it seemed to point at nokernel.exe and drivers like the ones from daemon tools (removed the program, still got bsod), directx driver, and watchdog.sys

I made a Ccleaner for registery yesterday so unfortunately my dump files are gone, and I haven't been able to get new dump files since then even if I got BSODs.

I've updated my drivers via the intel website.

I've been running Memtest86+ for 10passes with no errors.

I've checked my temps with speedfan and they seem ok.

My computer was originaly running on vista 32bits, I've installed win 7 2months ago.

I'm linking my SF diagnostic tools files even if I don't think there is any dump files in it.

I'm open to suggestions, thanks in advance.

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.
 

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

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.

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.

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,

For about a month now, when streaming audio and video online the sound stutters at random points. I have an 8Meg connection so streaming shouldn't be a problem but I have new speakers and sound card so potentially isn't a hardware issue?

Many thanks
 

A:Streaming issues

it would depend on how good quality that 8M connection is
try this website http://www.pingtest.net/ to test the quality

Also are you using wireless - as that may be the issue , if so post an xirrus screen shot

------------------------------------------------------------------------
{run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector} Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php
Direct link to the program is here http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifi_download_redirect.php
Then run and install the program
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

Run the program

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.

Hi

Just got a new pc (win 7 i5 cpu) and all was running fine until recently. For some reason many video's online (sky player, bbc news items even five live radio)all have stopped working and just try to keep buffering. You get a second of play then buffering again.

I have another older pc with the same network connections, anti virus and firewalls that seems to work fine and my broadband speed is fine.

Strangely some video's work fine ie youtube and bbc i-player.

Anyone got any suggestions of what is blocking the players ?

How long does the buffering last? 10-15 secs is normal. Wait until the video loads completely and then play it. See if that helps. The problem may not be at your end.

Starting sometime last week I've been having MAJOR issues with streaming online. For instance, when trying to watch a youtube video or using Pandora, I get a stuttering effect or echos. My computer is older (6...7 years), and it has slowed down over time. Usually my computer takes a bit longer to load content, but then can stream it ok once it got going.

My question is, how can I diagnose what's wrong? My guess would be that I'm running out of memory or something like that. I've done a virus scan with Malwarebytes and Norton, but nothing came up. Has tecnology simply passed me by and it's finally time for a new computer?

Any help in figuring out what's going on and fixing it would be really appreciated. If it helps, I'm on a Dell with Windows XP Version 2002 Service Pack 3, Pentium 4 2.80 GHz, and 2.00 GB of RAM.

Here is the issue.

No matter the website i go to to stream any video, be it youtube or spikedhumour... it takes up to 10 seconds to start streaming, then roughly every 5 seconds it has to rebuffer...

The weird thing is, I typically download from 300kb/s to 1.2mb/s.

So... I tried my own troubleshooting.
First I tried multiple browsers.
Firefox, EI, Flock, and Opera.
All give me the same problem.

So I kept on looking for a solution, and found a program called:
Speedbid video Accelerator. (This is not an AD)

It still starts off slow with the frequent rebuffering. But It does work as the video progresses, Its like it streams a part of the video to itself and the amount that it streamed is put into the video you are streaming... So not really the solution I was looking for... I will keep using it until I figure this out.

I had multiple ads suggest a registry scan. So I bought a copy of some registry scanner at walmart... fixed some errors.... found hundreds... but then again these programs are always trying to make themselves amazing... I figured it wouldnt fix anything, and it didnt...

I am new to this "proxy" thing i stumbled on, what do they do and can it help me?

I am on a college campus, Internet isn't shared from what I can tell.
If i can download up to 1.2megs a second I should be able to stream quite easily.

Azereus Vuze, I have had this program for a while now. But I recently started to stream videos with it. With Vuze I am able to stream ANY video... Read more

A:Streaming issues! Help

I have tried other approaches...
I have vista, And i Disabled iPv6, and disabled TCP Auto-Tuning.

Neither helped....

Oh and an update, I downloaded at 3.5 megs a second on the ubuntu website...

I am curious if it is just vista in my case so I was going to try Linux OS... but partitions aren't working too well for me.

Anyway... even if you cant help...
Maybe you can post a possible source for my issue.
I will do the work on the research....

So far I have made the prediction that my issue that the internet is run through a campus network(router) and the security needs to be dampened. I am not connected via wireless, I have an Ethernet cord which runs into the wall.... not a modem... unless there is a modem behind the well......... riiiiiiight haha... so I am most likely run through a router.

So far my issue remains exclusive to this forum.

Hey every one,

I'm on a 56k modem and not by choice. Well, I want to watch this video thats on the internet but my only choice is to stream it. Which it is very diffiuclt to stream video with a 56k modem phone line.

So when you get to the web site it provides a link to the video, then when you click on it, it pop ups another window and plays the video. Theres no way for me to actually right click "save target as" or right click "save link as" ect.

Got any ideas on how to save this video on my hard drive?

bigk
 

A:Streaming video

Streaming media is often already on your hard drive after you've watched it as it is downloaded to your 'temp internet files' folder.
Before you have a look I would empty this folder first as it gets full fast so would make finding/identifying the file a little harder. View the folder contents by details and sort by file size, it should be near the top somewhere if it's there.

Lately, whenever I try to access a video on the internet (like thru MSN newcasts) the video and audio come through OK but the video is all washed out and faded. This just started happening recently. I'm using a broadband connection for the internet and my video card is a G-Force FX 5200 NVIDIA AGP 4X 128 MB memory running on WinXP Home. I've checked my settings but can't seem to find out what's causing it. Thanks

I am having trouble watching streaming video with Media Player 7.01. The sound is okay but the video is very very poor, mostly freezing for long periods of time. The sound is always constant but the video is poor.
I am on DSL and have a Pentiuim 350 & using Windows 98.
Is there a program that will let me save the streaming video for play back at a later date ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've been streaming my work via ustream and a logitech orbit cam. For some reason, when I broadcast it will only work half the time. I have no problem with the original software talking to the cam, but when I use their site, it only works half the time. You can hear the mic, but no picture.. It's running about 50/50.
So I am wondering if it's their site that is the issue, my cam or this computer that has the issues.
On another note; is it possible to address the cam as an IP on our network and have people directly plug that address into their browsers? What kind of issues would I have with the router and our firewall (Norton)?

I am running Windows NT Workstation 4.0 with IE 6 and I can't seem to stream videos longer than 5 or 6 minutes on websites like youtube.com or dailymotion.com. I have tried clearing my web browser's cache and even moving the temporary internet file folder, but to no avail. I think I have Flash Player 7 installed as well. Any suggestions?
 

A:streaming video

You might need to install the latest version.
Flash Player 9.
After you save the installer, you need to uninstall your older version.
Uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plug-in and ActiveX control.
If you have any problems with the install, you can check this troubleshooting guide.

Hello everyone, I've recently built myself a little HTPC system for the living room but I'd like to stream some of the movies stored on it to my laptop downstairs over wireless.

Problem is that only the SD videos will stream reliably, any of the HD ones buffer every minute or so making them unwatchable. My isp is Be and my connection speed is usually around 10Mbps. If I use a wired connection I can stream 1080p stuff without problem it's just over wireless I'm having problems. I'm using XBMC for media playback.

Is there anything I can do with my wireless to enable me to stream HD stuff reliably?
I don't think it's signal related as it happens even if I sit right next to the router. I was thinking of getting a new USB highspeed wireless adapter but I'm pretty sure my router is only capable of the lower speed not the new 802.11n standard that seems to be the way to get the high speeds I need.

The only other thing I'm thinking would work is using one of those ethernet powerline adapters to get a wired connection for the bedroom. However these seem quite expensive, so my questions are is there anything I can do to improve my wireless or is there an easier way of getting a wired connection?

hi,tired of video buffering?are there any software to speed up video loading?tq

A:video streaming

There is no software that I'm aware of to speed up video buffering and if someone claims that their software will speed it up they are lying. Video streaming is dependent on your system, video board, and internet connection. If you're here to post SPAM, I would not suggest it. If you're here looking for an honest answer, then I apologize for the previous warning.

Hi All

For the life of me i cant get streaming to work from windows 7 to Xbox 360.

In the old days using XP i would stream direct to Xbox 360 using WMP, easy as with no porblems.

Now i cant seem to get any sharing working through wmp12, i have shared everyone and everything, spent numreous hours trying to get it to work with no luck.

i use PS# media server which works but the video is choppy and stops.
Media Centre is even worse, i cant even watch 5 seconds before is stops and buffs.

I know enough about computers to know i am going crazy trying to figure this out.. if anyone is willing to help pl email and i will greatly appriciate it.

I would even remote access etc if that would help.

thank you
Michael

As of this week I am unable to watch video at nbc.com. I am able to watch nbc programs on hulu - wouldn't they be the same file type? cbs, comedycentral and youtube all work fine. I noticed that one of the videos was shockwave so I downloaded a new version but that didn't correct the problem. nbc's site doesn't address this or offer help to users so I'm hoping someone can advise me.
I use Firefox, and may have downloaded some updates, but not a new version.
I had a little trouble with Bitdefender last week , but it isn't interfering with any other streaming video sources so I don't suspect it's the problem. (but what do I know?)
Thanks, V

I just went to NBC.com on Internet Exploror and their videos worked fine. Maybe you can try IE? Also, IF you do NOT live in America, some websites restrict access from outside America. I know MTV Overdrive does that.

Hello,

I'm sure that the vast majority of you will consider this a dumb question, but here goes. I'm running Windows XP and I use IE 7.0 as my browser. I also have AOL. When I'm in AOL, I can get the CNN live streaming video (for instance, I can view the current Court TV trial in progress). I get this by entering the appropriate web address for CNN live feed on the address bar on the AOL screen. As far as I can tell, it's the Adobe Flash reader that brings up the video, and it works fine.

The problem is, that when I just go to my desktop (without logging onto AOL) and launch IE, then enter the same address into the address bar for CNN live, I get nothing. It just sits there and I get no error message, but nothing happens. Every other site that I enter from the IE address bar works fine.

What am I missing or doing wrong?

Thanks,
Louis

Hi

I am trying to watch some video streams, my computer plays them but after about 5 minutes it stops working and the when I move the mouse there are pink strips appear on the screen and the colours are not right.

Also if I try to convert video after a short time, anything from a few seconds to a few minutes everything on the screen freezes inluding the mouse. I normally use AVS video converteer but have tried others and other videos but it still freezes.

I am using windows 7 and ie11, 2GB ram. AMD athlon64 X2 3GHZ
 

A:video streaming

Sounds like the PC is overheating. Video conversion will typically use 100% of the cpu, thus generating heat. When was the last time the PC was cleaned of dust and dirt?

Not sure if this should be under tips since it isn't a problem post, but I thought I'd better fit under the Games section =D. This is how to stream video from your computer to your Wii over a network! Since Wii uses the Opera browser, it has flash support built into. Orb can convert avi, mpeg, etc into flash on the fly. The quality is not 100%, but just the fact that you're able to do it seemed kinda cool to me.

1) Download the trail web browser on the Wii
2) Install Orb on host PC, http://orb.com/
3) Uninstall any code packs and install each codec indvidually, http://support.orb.com/support/solution.jsp?sol=144
4) Reset
5) Set up user name and shared folders in Orb
6) Log into mycast.orb.com on with Wii browser and stream away!

If your videos are freezing on the first frame and audio keeps playing, try this reghack:

Taken from http://forum.orb.com/
Open regedit on the PC where Orb is installed.
In HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE..Software..Orb Networks..Orb..OrbStreamer you will find a "HQFlash" key with value 1. Delete this key and restart Orb.
For information this key sets Orb to encode in Flash using a better quality codec whenever possible, and this codec might not be compatible with the Wii Flash version. Removing this key will default to a lesser quality encoder which is more likely to be compatible.
