Hang up/Crash when streaming video, especially live video

Q: Hang up/Crash when streaming video, especially live video

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.

Preferred Solution: Hang up/Crash when streaming video, especially live video

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.)

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.

Windows 8 was working flawlessly. When I upgraded to Windows 8.1, my IE started flipping out and then my NVidia drivers crashed (Windows gave me a "Video drivers stopped responding" message). Thinking the whole thing was fubared, I did a clean format, installed Win8, and updated to 8.1 without installing gfx drivers. Once I had updated to 8.1, I then installed the drivers and everything is running smoothly.
The only problem I'm having is on sites like YouTube and in metro apps that stream media like Netflix. The content starts out fine and then after few minutes of playing, halts -- nothing is responsive at that point. The mouse cursor moves, but CTRL+ALT+DEL doesn't work, and if I have the task manager open before-hand on the second monitor, it too freezes and becomes unresponsive. CPU fan doesn't spin up any faster so the cpu is not being 100% used. After hopelessly clicking around the screen, everything jumps back to life as if nothing happened after a couple minutes of being frozen.
I thought because Netflix have moved to IE11 HTML5 rendering that it was some how IE11 problem, I played youtube in Chrome browser and ran into the exact same problem. If I don't stream any video, everything works perfectly fine -- I've been using this IE11 instance for an hour now, browsing reddit, etc. and it hasn't frozen once. But if I go to YouTUbe and play something, it'll lock up in a few minutes.
I havn't tried playing any video through... Read more

Definite possibility. Install or reinstall the latest network driver from your PC (or motherboard) manufacturer's web site. Of course, if you are using an external network adapter you need to get the latest driver from the adapter manufacturer's site.

Enter the following address for 'FMS URL':

Replace Your_Domain_or_IP with your domain name or
dedicated IP address (if your account has been assigned one).
When entering your domain name, do not enter the 'www.'
portion (e.g. type in mysite.com and not www.mysite.com).

The instance name is arbitrary and is used to reference the

Example FMS URL: rtmp://mysite.com/live/soccermatch

A:Help Live Video Streaming?

Its fairly easy----you need to encode your video to a format like .wmv (Windows), upload it to a server, and voila, thats it. Most basic NLE's will allow you to do this---Remember, you need a server to host your video and that since video files are fairly large, you would want to make sure that you get a good deal on bandwidth usage with your provider.

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.

I would like to know what equipment I need in order to be able to live stream at my church? We currently have two Sony HXR MC-2500 and are planning to use the HDMI port on the camera. Currently, we are having a little difficulty figuring out how we're going to live stream at our church. Our initial setup was to have an SDI to HDMI converter, but unfortunately customer service at blackmagic said the converter was useless for what our plans our. So, I did a little bit of research.
Thanks for reading my preface! Now the deats
My computer has 1 USB-3.0 port, 1 USB-C port, and 1 HDMI In port. I was told the set up would have to be:
Camera HDMI, Blackmagicdesign HDMI to USB mini recorder, get a thunderbolt, then connect to my computer's USB 3 port. Oh, I have two cameras, by the way.
Thanks in Advance.

Hello, I have noticed that sometimes when I am watching live video being streamed from websites on the web that my PC will just shut down.  I know that this can be sometimes caused by overheating, or too many programs running at once but usually when I'm watching streaming video that is all I'm doing.  It may be caused by fullscreen viewing on the websites, but when I play DVD's or watch movies that I'm downloaded in Full screen this doesn't happen.  I don't receive an error message(I know this may be because of a setting that calls for auto restart when errors occur.) the PC will just shut down and then I can hear my HD revving really fast.  My PC to my knowledge has a good power source and it is an intel processor 6x T1100 Phantom II so, it should be able to handle quite a bit I would think.  Any help would be appreciated, I know you guys are the best because you've helped me before.

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.

Hey all,
I've noticed that this seems to be a problem that several people have had, and I've fallen victim to it as well. Whenever I go to watch a streaming video, everything will work fine until Firefox frequently (and randomly) freezes up. I have to open the task manager and quit the process to do anything else. After I've done that, however, I cannot run any other programs. I have to restart my computer.
I have the latest version of Firefox and Flash, for sure. Not sure about ActiveX. I'd appreciate any help, as I really have having to pop into Opera to watch videos!

Hi guys,

We cut the cable and are relying on Roku (in the bedroom) and Xbox 360 (in the living room) to watch TV through Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc. We had some nasty weather come through this week and my other half (some may say my better half) wanted to just have the weather on the TV while we were hanging out. So, I set off to make that happen.

A local TV station (1011now.com) has a Livestream feature on their site, which requires Adobe FlashPlayer, and I was hoping to use that. However, Xbox 360's version of Internet Explorer does not support FlashPlayer. So, I scoured the web to see what I could find and it seemed that I may be able to stream video from my computer to the Xbox via web browser.

After about 30 hours of frustration and a fresh installation of Windows, I finally have my computer linked to my Xbox 360. I can play videos and music from my computer libraries without any problems. That being said, I still can't for the life of me figure out how to stream the FlashPlayer content to the 360.

I also learned that I don't have Windows Media Center (WMC) on my computer, which is what the 360 wants to use to do that kind of thing. I also learned that WMC isn't available for Windows 8.1. That is, unless I've grossly misunderstood something.

Any ideas on how I could make this happen?

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.

I went to the UFC's website and clicked on one of the video's they had embedded in their scrolling news on the home page. The screen went black and then came back, saying that the video driver had shutdown and recovered. I refreshed the page, assuming it was just a glitch. I clicked the same video to watch it and my computer seized up and I got a blue screen. I didn't have enough time to read everything on the blue screen, but I caught a little bit saying that Windows had encountered an error with the video driver and needed to shut down. The computer rebooted a bit sluggishly, but now appears to be fine. Any ideas as to whether this is a problem with my video card's driver or the video on the site? Videos elsewhere work fine.

I like to view music videos on a site called Launch.com. I have a high-speed cable connection (advertised at 500 kbs). Lately, when I try to view videos at the highest speed available (the site lets you stream at various speeds), there are pauses in the video, no video at all and sometimes breaks and pauses in the audio as well. Here are my questions:

Are there problems with Launch.com? Is their server gagging trying to keep up with the traffic? (remember--this used to work just fine until a month or two ago).

I have Norton AntiVirus and update it daily. There are no issues here. I'm not behind a firewall, no issue here either. Is there something I can change in IE5.5 to change the buffering (or is it cache) for streaming? If so, how?

My carrier is Charter Pipeline. Does anybody out there have problems with streaming multi-media using Charter?

Can somebody else go to Launch.com, watch a video at 300 kbs and tell me if they have the same problem?

Hi arahod

I'd expect one of your Internet Options settings is in conflict with what the sites you wish to play videos from require. You can take a look at the settings a typical site needs to play videos & try those settings (we'll use the New York Times as an example --- http://www.nytimes.com/ref/membercen...imediaqa9.html ). Another strategy is to add the sites from which you often view videos to your trusted sites (in the Security tab of Internet Options).

If you feel your favorite media player is at fault, check in EventViewer to see if any errors are showing in the logs that happen at the same time your video fails to play [Start/Control Panel/Performance and Maintenance/Administrative Tools/EventViewer].

...and, of course, since this is a brand-new machine, you can contact eMachines to see if there are any problems specific to your model.

Best of luck

Chances are pretty good that the kind of stuff you're looking to record is protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) meaning it's not recordable. There are programs that claim to record DRM protected videos but none of them work. I am assuming you're talking about something like Hulu as opposed to Youtube.

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

A:help with streaming video

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.

How can i download streaming video from a website on to my computer? Instead of the video passing through a buffer, i want to store it on my hard drive... how can i do this?!?!?!?!

A:streaming video

In alot of instances you can't because they purposefully setup the webpage code and delivery method of the video so you can't download the file. About all you can do is right click on the video link and then select "Save Target As". Depending on how the page and delivery method is setup, you may or may not actually get a video file. You have to try it and see.

Hi! Some time after I'd installed Windows Media Player 11, audio stopped working when watching a streaming video (like CNN Pipeline etc.). Some servers offer a RealPlayer stream as well and there's no problem watching that, but when the stream is in Windows Media Format, the WMP plugin in Firefox is used and I can watch it, but I can't hear anything. I downloaded&installed Windows Media Codecs from Microsoft.com and it didn't help. I uninstalled WMP11, but the previous version (WMP10) does the same.

When I copy the address of the video stream and open it in VLC Player (or WinAmp), it works fine, so there must be some problem with WMP.

Does anyone of you know what to do? Or is there any chance of changing WMP Plug-in in Firefox for a different one - i'd like to be able to watch streaming videos embedded in wep pages as before.

I've been asked to get the following working but so far am stumped. Apparently it was working at one time (before I started here) and they want it to work again.

One of our clients, whose website we host and have done development on, has a live webcam that they want to provide access to from their site. They are running Windows NetMeeting on that computer and all works well when you connect using Windows NetMeeting.

But what they want is to have a link which would launch Windows Media Player and display the video stream through that.

Thank you for your help.

I think that streaming video is the problem, but I know nothing bout it ;). When I goto websites like mtv.com and [email protected] I try to watch music videos and things of that sort, the audio plays decent but the video... It's all jumpy and pauses alot even though the audio continues to play. All my friends say they can see it just fine, and I keep much better care of mine. I've got a dsl connection so speed isn't a problem. All the leaves is... Dunno.

Useful information
-I use Windows media player 10.
-I own other media players, but don't know how to get websites to use them instead.


A:Streaming video...

What speed is your DSL connection? Even with our T1 (1.5Mb up/down) we still get lag. I have a 5.0Mb connection at home and I can stream video with ease.

You may also want to up the buffering if you have a slower DSL line.
