Audio stuttering on playing Divx video

Q: Audio stuttering on playing Divx video

Hi,
I am using DivX Plus Player version 8.1.2 to play some mkv files. The audio wasn't playing and I found from the error message that I needed a codec (AC3 and 8192 came up - I'm not technical enough to know what that means).

I found a codec, and now the audio plays but stutters to the point where I can't watch the video.

Please help a numpty in distress!

Thanks,
Meg

Preferred Solution: Audio stuttering on playing Divx video

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.)

A: Audio stuttering on playing Divx video

Well, I'll tell you what I do with the DivxHD MKV files...I convert them to Xvid MP4 with Format Factory.
Why? Because I have nothing but trouble playing back MKV files...the audio is out of sync, the audio stops, the audio this the audio that (can't remember stuttering).
I convert to Xvid MP4 and the picture is still great, it plays in anything and the audio is rock solid.

Other than that I think MKV is great!

Wasn't sure what this could be related to. If this is in the wrong section just let me know.

Well, this started about a week ago. I thought nothing about it. I thought it may have been a bad driver. So I updated my graphics driver, stuttering is still there. So next I tried to update my hard drive firmware, but the stuttering is still there. Next I tried, to update my bios, that didn't help it. Any ideas?

I have an asus g73jw laptop with the specs:

i7-740qm
8gb of ram
Nvidia gtx 460m
Hard drive is a Momentus XT

If there is anything else you need just let me know.

A:Frequent Audio/Video stuttering while watching movies, playing games

Hi,

I would suggest you to check the performance in “Safe mode with networking”.

Run the Windows Audio Playback Diagnose and Repair from the below MS FIX-IT: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/AudioPlayback/

You can even try running Microsoft Fix IT’s from the URL mentioned below according to the issue:
http://support.microsoft.com/fixit/

If this issue started occurring after doing some recent software changes on your computer, then I would suggest you to restore your system back to a date when it was working fine. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only.

Hope this helps.

My audio (when playing CDs or MP3's on the computer) seems to be stuttering and skipping. I've googled this and found all sorts of results regarding overclocking or PCI Latency Timers and I have NO IDEA what these things mean or how to deal with them.

I've removed all AdWare and scanned for viruses - nothing. I've defragged the hard drive. I've checked on the sound card driver - that seems to be up to date (or at least the automatic driver search couldn't find anything better).

Any advice? I use this system for audio and video editing so it's a pretty vital issue.

A:audio/video is stuttering

Stuttering of audio/video...is probably not indicative of a malware problem. I will restore your log, if there is any indcation in your responses that your situation should be treated as a malware case. HJT logs are not permitted in the XP forum, such logs are malware tools and are handled in one of our malware forums.

Start/Run...type chkdks /r and hit Enter. Type Y in response to onscreen query and hit Enter. Reboot the system...the command will execute and the system will boot into XP when command has finished running.

Upon reboot of the system...defrag the system partition.

FWIW: 512MB is not an overwhelming amount to handle all system tasks. How large is your pagefile and is Windows managing it?

A:Audio and video stuttering!!

CAUTION: I offer advanced settings!
It sounds like an IRQ conflict.

When hardware blocks shared IRQ resources,
bus mastering is supposed to take care of that.

On a desktop station, the answer is easy... assign
a different address or use another PCI slot.

With a laptop, that's another story.

You can still force IRQ per device, though,
if you install the STANDARD HAL.

When doing a "repair install", hit F5.
Then, select "Standard 486", rather than ASPI,
or whatever the default.

You WILL lose APM, so you'll have to manually
turn off your machine after logging off or "shutting down".

But it allows you to force devices to use IRQ's you want to.
Otherwise, Windows overrides the CMOS settings.

I have a real problem with audio and video stuttering badly on my computer. I am running Windows 7 and have run malware and virus scans on it, but they don't seem to help. The problem started shortly after I moved my computer from the basement because of some flooding. I don't have direct access to a hard wired internet hook up so I am using a Trendnet 54 Mbps wireless G USB adapter as my internet connection. The stuttering with all music players and when I am streaming from the internet. My mouse is also very jerky on the screen at times. Could the way I'm accessing the internet be causing the problems, or is it just a coincidence that the problems started when I moved my computer? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

This happens at random points and i have also started noticing it whilst listening to music as well, as i get a sort of mechanical stuttering sound during playback. Would these be a problem with the hardware of something i have not done with the settings?

AMD 3500+ 939

Nforce4 MSI K8N SLI mobo


the problem i am having is this, any AVI (Weather it be divx or whatever), and mp3 i play on my computer has weird split second pauses or stuters through it. It doesn't do it 100% of the time. About once or twice every 5 minutes.

I am running Win Pro x64, but i have the latest x64 nforce drivers for all hardware. When i upgraded, i originally bought a Gigabyte nforce4 board (basically the equivalent of what i have now) and it was doing the exact same thing, thats why i swapped it for the MSI!

So i'm leaning toward it being a software issue. I've tried different codec packs (not that they should effect mp3 playback)

I've tried different ram.

I've scoured the net for ppl having the same problem, there is ppl having similar problems but no one having an identical problem.

I'm pretty sure the same prob was happening in windows 32 bit when i had it on aswell but i'm not 100% on that.

any help would be GREATLY appreciated. really want to get this thing figured out as i'm really keen on music, and there's nothing worse than having a favourite song stutter on you!

Now let me start from the beginning. For the past 5 years I have been using the same 80G HD without problems, but lately it has just been getting full and staying full so i purchased a new Samsung 320G drive. Since i only have 1 sata cable i took my old drive out (didnt format it) then put the new one in and installed windows vista 32 bit. (same as old drive) Got it running and started installing drivers including sound card and video card. After finishing this I transferred files off my my external drive over to this new drive then once finished started playing a video game (world of warcraft) and noticed stuttering in audio and visual. I spent several hours trying to fix this and came to the conclusion it had to be the HDD since my old one this problem wasnt accuring.

So I took this drive out, put my old one back in and of course no problems. No audio or video issues so i figured id just reformat and just start from scatch with the old drive. So once finished i went through my norm and started installing drivers... then boom its doing it again. so now its not a HDD issue and I once again have the new Samsung drive in.

A:Video/Audio Stuttering issue

What program are you using for video? How many other processes are running? Have you tried other media players? Is the stuttering happening when you're viewing or listening on the Internet or when you listen/view files on your hard drive? If you're streaming stuff from online, your Internet connection could be the issue. A lot of network traffic will cause a lot of buffering and stuttering like that.

Hello everyone,a year ago i bought and assembled PC components by myself and i was glad that everything worked well, smooth, audio&video in PC games and Movies were flawless, up untill recently when the audio and video start to stutter really bad, especially when Starting the PC,connecting or disconnecting from internet; thats when it spikes really bad something video and sound stuttering and freezing for seconds.
Here is a picture taken with the latency tester after i disconnected the internet.In normal use the stutter appears once at 10-20 minutes, sometimes more sometime less.
The PC components are:
Athlon II 620 2.6GHZ
2GB DDR3 TEAMGROUP RAM
HIS ATI 4770
Corsair 400W
Gigabyte MA785GT-UD3H

I cant recall the moment when the stutter happened the first time and why, but its happened after my PSU started to behave in a weird manner, its vent making an upsetting noise.It somehow stops when the PC is under heavy load, in a movie or a game, and it starts again when its idling.Its not a squal or whine, but more of a buzzing noise ,something like this .This started when i moved the pc and the desk in another place in the room.

So please do help me, I can provide more information, just ask; i'm doing fine with computers but those 2 problems didnt happen to me before so i don't know how to fix them.

A:Audio&Video Stuttering on my homemade PC

Your PSU is failing, this can be caused by various things, such as a failing fan, or being choked with dust and fluff. This causes erratic behaviour, because the power to the video card fluctuates. You will need to replace the Power Supply Unit, and preferably with one that can supply a bit more power. The card you are using uses roughly 200 Watts under load. Any other equipment you are using also draws power, so you may be on or above the limit for that power supply.

Since this morning when I turned on my pc I have been experiencing some strange issues and wondered if anyone had any advice or suggestions.

When moving the mouse around in a figure of eight with nothing open, every few seconds it skips for about 1/10th second. This is a brand new issue, but I was also having trouble with my wireless internet speed last night, for which I use a usb netgear wna1100 stick.

It seems my pc is dieing in some way but I'm unsure how to identify whats causing the problem as I don't have lots of spare bits to put in.

Things I've tried so far:
Checked mobo + graphics card temps, both ~40-50C idle.
Malware Bytes found nothing
Full AVG scan found nothing
SeaTools hard drive scan found nothing

This leaves me to suspect a hardware fault somewhere else.

My system specs:
Windows 7 64-Bit Home Edition
Sapphire Radeon 4870 2GB
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+
Gigabyte M57SLI-S4
Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse

The stuttering is fairly random, but always present and it never goes for longer than about 10 seconds without doing it.

Any ideas? Dieing motherboard or HD? How can i tell without replacing them?

Hello, About a week ago, I began having problems with my audio and video. When I would watch a video on youtube or play a song from Media Player or iTunes, it would momentarily pause every second. Obviously this is a frustrating problem. Also, my mouse and keyboard stutter at this same interval. The letters I type do get typed out but they have to catch up so to speak where they don't get typed out as soon as I press them. This all happens as soon as I start my system and the timing never changes; the stutter occurs every second- I've even timed it out to be one stutter per second. I did a system restore to an earlier time and nothing improved- I checked for updates, and checked to make sure that my ATA/ATAPI Devices were in DMA Mode at the suggestion of another forum where a person with similar problems solved theirs. Here is the procedure: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/storage/IDE-DMA.mspxBut this didn't do anything for me either. I've run multiple MBAM scans, my other virus program (NOD 32) and Spybot, but nothing came up. The only other thing I can think of is that whenever I start up my computer, the black screen at the beginning says that it can't detect an AC power source. I'm assuming that this means that my battery is dead (I have a laptop). If the power cord gets unplugged, even if for a second, the entire computer just dies. The computer worked fine even with this power error message, so that's why I think that I just need a new b... Read more

Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop

Windows XP Service Pack 3 (2 original, but updated to 3 over Windows Update)

Okay so I reformatted and installed Windows XP SP 2 recently. Sometime after doing that and downloading numerous Microsoft updates and updated drivers for my Dell Inspiron 6000, I noticed that my mouse cursor stutters a little bit from time to time as I move it around. I think it happened even after a fresh installation of Winows XP, but I can't remember for sure.

How should I go about solving this problem? I already run my spybot, adaware, and Avast virus scan, but they haven't fix anything. My drivers are all up to date too I think. Below is my HijackThis log

My situation is as follows:

Recently my laptop has developed a "hitching" habit - that is, video and audio files will stutter every few seconds and my CPU usage jumps into the stratosphere for the same short, but irritating length of time.

I've no idea what is causing this problem. I've exhausted my theories:

The drivers for my graphics card and sound card are up-to-date.
Scans from AVG 7.5 yield no viruses.
Scans from Windows Defender yield no spyware and such.

What is happening?

Hey everyone,

My wife's computer has had a "skipping" problem for quite some time. I have been to the Malware forum and determined that the computer is cleaned - and they had me update windows and Java. I have run multiple virus scanners, spybot, adaware, have tried disconnecting wireless (i read somwhere that that could be it), checked memory, defragged, etc... basically everything i know how to do and i have not been able to remedy the situation. Basically whenever you run and audio or video file in any application (WMPlayer, Itunes, youtube, anything) it skips and stutters terribly. I think it really does it alot of times, it is just more noticable when you are listening / watching something continuous. The computer has plenty of available memory, is not maxed out in CPU usage or anything. Other than this problem, the computer seems to run flawlessly... I cant figure it out - if someone has time to help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I just installed a new Sony DRU-810A DVD/CD drive/burner. I can't figure out why it's stuttering with both audio and video during playback.

It's the third drive installed in my PC. I've got the HD on one cable, and on the other cable, a Lite-On CD-ROM driver as master and this Sony drive as the slave. I've updated the firmware for the Sony drive and I'm still getting this problem.

I know it's not a problem with system resources or resolution. I've got a 3.0 Ghz HT CPU, 1 Gb of RAM, and a Nvidia GeForce 6800 GT OC. I don't have any open programs running while trying to watch DVD movies. When a DVD plays, both the audio and video stutter. I've even tried listening to regular CDs in the drive and it sounds like the audio is still stuttering.

Could it be the fact that the Sony drive is on slave? If I changed it to master, would this fix the problem? Thanks in advance!
 

A:Solved: DVD drive audio/video stuttering

First off, I'd make sure the cable the drive is on is a 80 wire cable and not a 40 pin cable. Next I'd try swapping it's location on the cables to see if it worked better. Some model drives don't like being on the same cable with some different model drives.

If that didn't help, I'd check in the device manager to make sure the drive is using DMA mode. You do this by opening the device manager, right click on the devices listed under IDE ATA/ATAPI and choose properties, then check the primary channel and secondary channel tabs.

If it's not using DMA, try reloading the motherboard drivers, restart and check again.

It could also be a bad 80 wire cable.

I have a HP-dv6 -6050 laptop, bought it last august. It was running fine up until a month or two ago. I don't recall what I did but I think it was the time I installed Dragon Age: Origins. Either way, I noticed some problems since then.
Firstly it became very slow...even deleting files took longer than usual even of size 18 bytes.Programs and folder would take time to launch.
Secondly, which is a big headache, audio and video files now get stuck every 3-5 seconds while playing them. It is there evn in VLC player.
I tried defragging, some kind of a memory test through diagnostic startup, and even returned the system to factory settings. Sometimes it seems to get better.. but only for a while.
Also, the graphic card switching mechanism seems to be a bit buggy. When I plug in the power source, the dialog box to switch the graphic card doesn't appear.
I would be very grateful to anyone who can help sort this out.

Hello, and thank you in advance for your help. A few months ago, my system became infected: namely, AntiMalware Doctor and the Google redirect virus. After getting some help from Microsoft Customer Support, I found your forums. Since then, I have received lots of help from Malware Response Team member Sempai. I'm happy to say the infections appear to be gone; however, some issues seem to persist. Audio & video is choppy and stuttered. This occurs with all audio and video, from my own music and videos on my HD to youtube and other streaming video to games run through flash, java, etc. The only site that doesn't seem to be choppy is Hulu. For some reason, their video comes through with no issue. My main issue is with SlingPlayer, an application that uses my SlingBox (a device hooked to my cable box that allows me to stream my television online) that worked with no problems before. Now, it is unwatchable, due to the extreme stuttering. I have tried letting it buffer, but no amount of storing up the video seems to matter. Also, youtube and other streaming videos tend to run a little better once I have let them completely load, but it doesn't always work and it isn't perfect. Whenever I Restart my computer, the audio controls on my machine stop working, and the Volume icon on my system tray disappears. I effectively have no volume control.

Hello, it seems almost at random on some occasions that I play Rocket League and the game has small stutters every five seconds or so.
 
According to Afterburner, it looks like my CPU and GPU are maxing out when they should not be. My computer can definitely handle Rocket League, and it has done many times in the past without issue. I have a quad-core i5-4670K CPU @ 3.40GHz and GTX 760.
 
This also happens with other games, but is most noticeable with Rocket League. It also happens with YouTube videos.
 
I've opened my computer, hit it with compressed air, and this issue still persists. It persists through system shutdowns, so I don't think it's overheating.  It's persisted through an upgrade to Windows 10, as well. I've did a clean install of video drivers, as well. Sometimes I start up the computer and it works, and sometimes I get the stutter.
 
Is some sort of virus/mining software responsible? I've ran Malwarebytes, but it's showing blank. How can I tell if this is a hardware or software issue?
 
Any ideas of next steps on how to determine what's responsible would be greatly appreciated. 
 
Thanks!

Hello,

Like the topic says, I am having problems with my audio and video stuttering (can't even play a youtube video or open any games--way to slow) as well as my cursor dissapearing then reappearing periodically during any form of activity.

I had this same problem awhile ago and found it was due to the Microsoft Compatibility Program for Office 2003, which was installed via Windows Automatic Updates. I simply uninstalled that program and did a system restore back to the point just prior to installing that program and everything was fine.

I am now having the exact same problems but since the Compatibility Program for Office is no longer the culprit, I am thinking it is some other update which has been installed recently?

I have run Norton Antivirus 2009, Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware and neither of them have found any infections.

Please advise

P.S. I just wanted to add that I clean and defrag my system on a regular basis, so clutter is not an issue

I have a brand new Inspiron 7560 and I've been having a lot of issues with the audio and video sort of lagging and making a buzzing noise and stuttering, it happens every 15 minutes when watching something or listening to music.
I had this issue and then got the laptop replaced because I had no idea what the issue was. I don't like returning items but it was brand new and cost a lot so I was worried there was a bigger problem. It happened with the first one from the get go but with the replacement it started happening after a few days of use. It started off with static noises every so often roughly within the first say 30 minutes of turning the laptop on, and then it started doing the buzzing and lagging every 15 minutes like the first one I had. I've also noticed a static noise whenever putting the charger in or out.
I had a look on the internet on how to fix it before I got the first one replaced but none of it worked, I've had another look now and came across a thread but it was from 2011 so thought the fix may be outdated now. I thought my best bet was to just come straight here to see if anyone could help.
I'm really hoping this is a known issue and it's easy to remedy as I really don't want to return this one after already returning one. I'm sorry I haven't got much information about the issue, but I hope someone will be able to help me. If you need anything else I will try my best to answer any questions.
Thanks very much

A:Audio and Video make buzzing noise/stuttering every 15 minutes

Different folks have problems for different reasons.  I would suggest you open at least Task Manager to watch the performance on the system to see if anything pops up every 15 minutes which is using resources.
Keep an eye on Processor speed and utilization.  Also the drive usage.  I can't think of anything which goes on a 15 minute time interval, but possibly some setting you have set up such as checking for mail..
Using Resource Monitor would be even better,  but the software/browser you are using could also be involved.

So I downloaded Vampires- The masquerade: Bloodlines the other day, and the logos come up and everything is fine. Until I get to the main screen. The audio and video is stuttering so much that I can't even bring myself to click on new game, since it takes 2 minutes just to move my mouse to it. And when I do, as soon as the first cutscene plays, its so bad that I can't even understand what's going on. I managed to skip the first cutscene, though, just to be greeted by some incredibly laggy gameplay. I've tried to change the compatibility mode to Windows 98 and everything possible, but nothing seems to work. I even have the unofficial patch installed...

The time between stutters lessens with time, to the point that watching youtube videos is a stutter fest.
 
This isn't just on youtube, practically anything that plays audio stutters including Skype and most games that I play.
 
In addition to the audio stutter, the video playback slows down slightly and the mouse movement becomes sluggish.
 
 
I've also had issues booting up smoothly, it always loads to the lock screen but every now and then when I try to pull it up with my mouse it lags out a bit before swiping up in three-ish frames.
 
In general, my computer feels a bit slower than it should be. I have a feeling it may be a driver issue, even though I've reinstalled my audio and video drivers several times. I'm hoping it's not a hardware issue, I've only had it since Christmas of last year.

I have this issue where sometimes when playing a game, whenever it's about to load a new audio asset, the game briefly freezes. Like for instance, I'm playing the Brutal Doom mod, and it will go fine for a little while but whenever I"m about to for example fire a new weapon, it will freeze itself for a second to seemingly load the new audio file for the gun being shot. There are other games that do this as well. Also, sometimes when watching a video on YouTube, I get audio stutter for a few seconds.

I've done scans with Avast!, Malware Bytes, and Spybot and so far nothing conclusive has come up. I ran the Intel Driver Update program and updated several drivers, but that hasn't fixed it. I also tried disabling Andrea ST but that didn't fix it neither. I've had this laptop for several years now, and it never did this until recently.

Hello friends,

Recently it's begun "stuttering" . . . i.e., the mouse movement has a bit of a
jerky movement; any audio I play back (including system sounds) stutters and
forget about watching anything on YouTube.

I've ruled out viruses, malware and spyware. I've defragmented the hard drive
and run just about every registry cleaner there is. I've run CHKDSK /f, tried
different settings for my video display and tweaked and retweaked system
