Online Video really jumpy

Q: Online Video really jumpy

I am running a fresh install of Windows 7 32bit. I have used Safari, IE9, IE8, Firefox 6, and Google Chrome. I have the latest drivers for my ATI Radeon HD 5450 video card.
I get jumpy or jittery video on many different websites. I am running the latest Flash and silverlight software. Modem has been replaced. DVD's play just fine.

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.)


I am having problems with my video editing software. It is a MAGIX program. All of a sudden whenever i play things back in the program, the video and audio start to go really slow and skippy, It's so annoying and it's impossible to edit any further. Does anyone know what I can do to fix the program. I have worked very hard on this project and I need to get it done.

Whenever I am playing PC games (eg. Sims, Tycoon games) I notice that my video is jumpy, or it pauses as if it is buffering. I have more than enough memory (1GB) in my system. Windows XP Pro. My hard drive is a 180GBB which was recently defraged. My CPU is a 2.6 Celeron. My video right now is an Intel integrated adapter. I also noticed that my CPU usage is at 100% when the game is active. My question is if this is a CPU or a Video problem? I am thinking of purchasing an 128MB AGP Video Card. Another thing is that the game is running from the CD-ROM. Any suggestions.
P.S. I have my system setup for Best Performance.

A:Video is jumpy when playing PC games

I wouldn't think you would need a fancy card for those kind of games, do you have an option of loading the game onto the hhd?? if so try that, but hey, I'm always up for a new video card.

HI , I was given an older computer to revamp for my brother. He is on a disability income and I want to burn him some video files to watch .. have some old family movies. It is an older computer with a Celeron 466 processor, and integrated video and sound. The video shares ram . I have assigned it 64 megs of ram and have installed 256 megs total . It is running windows 98SE. Is there any hope of getting divx video or mpeg video to run smoothly on here ? If so would my best bet be trying to install a separate video card, adding more ram , upgrading the cpu , all of the above? I need to do this the least inexpensive way possible please. I know my last pc before the one I built was a 533 and it could play video without this difficulty as long as I didn't run other things at the same time. PS have also tried putting the video on the hard drive and still get pauses in the video and then the sound isn't in sync.
Thank you very much.

Hi Guys, im having a bit of a problem with my dvd player on my laptop. the laptop is a Dell XPS M170 running XP pro and the dvd player is an HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-T21N. the original died a few weeks ago and i got a replacement part under warranty. the problem is that now i can not watch films. i get about a second or two then it will pause for a second or two. I have updated the firmware and drivers, i have also turned the hardware acceleration on and off. this playback problem occurs in both VLC and Windows Media Player which both worked with my previous drive. its starting to bug me now and any ideas would be great although i am starting to think that perhaps it is a faulty drive and i should get a new replacement??

I have followed thoroughly various tutorials for setting up OBS for streaming. Initially I had set it up for Youtube, then switched to Twitch. This works fine. I have absolutely no complaint with that. Streaming out to these platforms is working as I would like.
This issue I'm experiencing is what I can best describe as a pulsing or jumping, about once per second when I play a file back that I have recorded (not streamed) with OBS.

The audio is flawless, no stuttering, nothing like that. Audio BR is at 160...

As I watch the status information in OBS as I am recording, I see no warning about overloaded encoder, the frame rates are where they are supposed to be, no dropped frames. everything should appear to be good. CPU load is unremarkable, again plenty of headroom. It doesn't seem to matter if I increase bit rate, decrease bit rate, CBR, VBR, increase or decrease framerate, or which software i use to view the output fine: VLC, WMP, whatever, there is this pulsing. Its just enough to be annoying. Its subtle, but it's there. And it doesn't matter which PC I play the file on ( I have a few I can test it with)

The computer running OBS is more than adequate for the task.

I have - in an effort to improve things - changed recording format, changed encoder, even the location to which I was saving it ( initially that was a network drive, but I change to an internal SSD for test purposes) I can not get rid of this.

This is just for a little pet project, I ... Read more

I uninstalled several dvd conversion programmes on the 18 dec 08, They did not work and then installed one that did. After this my pc ran very slow, sound from online bbc radio was distorted and online videos would not play without jumping, firefox was very slow to load in fact any programme i tried to load was very slow and i occasionally had a crash. I tried cc cleaner, norton and several other registry cleaners but other than telling me that i had a problem and saying they had been fixed, the problem remained. I also uninstalled as many programmes as i could including itunes, google earth etc.etc. I cannot play itunes without distortion. I reset to an earlier date but this was on the 18th and could not go back further. My pc is an Acer Aspire 1640z with xphome and service pack 3. It's time to replace it but I would like to keep it going a little longer. I am reluctant to do a system restore as I'm not too savvy. Can anybody suggest a solution that a none too technical person like me, could try?

Hi all,

I have a .VOB file that I just burned onto a DVD+R using Roxio's MyDVD application. But when I watch the resulting video on my DVD player, it looks pretty 'jumpy'.

Any ideas what might be causing this? The source file, the MyDVD application, my DVD player?
For what it's worth, I'm burning at 16x and video quality is set to HQ (High Quality), and my system is Windows XP.

Thanks for your help,

Main problems: Programs take a while to start-up, windows takes a while to start-up, all icons on desktop take a while to appear when starting up (just generic icon for a while until computer actually starts responding), video and audio is choppy.Already went through the Malware attempts and disk scanning, defragging, and all that:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...p;#entry1586320Not sure if it's software or hardware related as I'm not sure what CPU temperatures I should be expecting and the computer has always run hot.The previous HD on this computer got borked and ended up getting a new one thats much bigger and faster (7200 vs 5400).

A:slow comp, especially on start-up & jumpy streaming video

How much RAM installed?How much free space on C:? How large is C:?I find that..."slow" is a relative term and when applied to a system...much depends on what is installed and running.Don't know if you have looked at remarks by Quietman7 at Slow Computer-browser Check Here First; It May Not Be Malware - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/87058/slow-computerbrowser-check-here-first;-it-may-not-be-malware/.FWIW: From the time that I press the power button...until all icons are present and system is accessible...normally takes 2-3 minutes for me (which is probably a good average).Problems with video files...depends heavily on system capabilities and origin/locale of the video source (online or hard drive).Louis

Trimming down that bloated Startup directory might help:

Click Start > Run > type msconfig

Select the Startup tab.

Other than Symantec/Norton, almost all items can be unchecked.
Reboot the computer.

After rebooting, when the small System Configuration Utility window appears, ignore the message. Put a check mark in that window, then click OK.

Have recently un-installed my ATI Radeon x1300 video driver because it caused endless problems and re-installed the NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE that my computer (Dell C521, Vista Ultimate 64-bit) originally came with, plus a recommended NVIDIA update. And, by the way, I use an ATI Theater 650 Pro card, 32 bit version with Media Center.

Problem: old TV recordings (from the ATI Radeon days) work perfectly. With new recordings, as well as live TV, the pictures and sound jump from one frozen 1-2 second episode to the next. Sound the same thing. Is there a setting in the NVIDIA control panel, that could fix this, or is it something else??

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi all,

I've recently found that when watching video online, the sound and video become de-synced after a few minutes, although they start in sync with each other. This happens every time on Netflix, and about half of the time on iPlayer. It only rarely affects YouTube, and is the same on all browsers I have installed (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and IE). Restarting the browser occasionally helps. I've had no issues playing files that I have saved on my computer, or DVDs.

Things I have tried so far:
- Clearing history, cookies, etc.
- Disabling extensions
- Full scans with CCleaner, Spybot, and AVG
- Reinstalling the browsers, flash, and silverlight
- Reinstalled sound and video drivers

Any ideas?

Thank you!

hi, I am an average use, so so familiar with computer language & knowledge, but, usually, I am eable to fix all the computers problems myself. I just received as a gift a pentium 4, with a dual core, both processors are saying 2,4 Ghz, 2 video cards, one NDIVIA GE force 6000 that I am using, one NDIVIA GE force 5500 that I am not using, 3200 meg ram of memory, 1 hard drive of about 150 gig split into : one C disk (75 gig.) with windows vista integral installed on it, legal full version, my "donator" paid for the license., and one D disk (75gig.) used to store pictures and others. I updated the computer yesterday over the internet because it was unplugged for a while, it installed vista SP1 and other stuff, but when I an trying to watch an online video, (youtube, filecabi.net,...) it keeps lagging sound & video its like I am watching a power point with bad transition, nothing is fluid. Now I know that this computer was running extra good with XP but I would like to keep Vista on it. Does anyone know how to fix this problem, I think the computer is relatively half decent, and that Vista should work fine with those components, maybe I an wrong, can anybody help me, thanks

Hi. . .

Check for driver updates. Use only anti-virus (1 product) no 3rd party firewall.

If problem exists in IE7, reset it (START | intecpl.cpl | advanced tab). Try Firefox - does same problem occur?

Check out WERCON - it lists the problems within your system in summary format -
START | type wercon.exe

The Reliability Mtr may help you isolate if problem due to Windows Update, Program or driver installs -
START | perfmon /rel

The Event Viewer - watch your video then proceed immed to Admin log - eventvwr.msc - see if any trouble recorded

Other than that - check in w/ Device Manager - click view, enable hidden devices. Look for the usual yellow/red flags.

Regards. . .

When listening to music or watching video online, is my experience of having the process interrupted periodically by buffering what I should expect? Or is there someway to avoid that? I have just downloaded RealPlayer in order to see some videos on ABCNew.com and then to listen to some music on Netradio.com. After doing more tinkering with controls and buttons than if is was flying a jumbo jet, all without the benefit of an owner's manual, I find myself wondering if all those people out there who listen to music and watch videos online suffer the same faith I do, i.e., getting more interruptions than I got on my home grown ham radio back in the thirties during an electrical storm.

Also, if you're still with me, is there any need to have both Windows Media Player and RealPlayer? Since I will use either very little, I want as little resources used and as little chance for problems, as possible. I now have version 4 Windows Media Player which I have thought about upgrading to version 6 (because I read that version 7 takes up so much in resources), and also uninstalling RealPlayer on the basis that with Windows Media I don't need RealPlayer for my minimum uses.

Any thoughts?

Just installed a new hard drive (XP Home SP3) and all went well except I can't get IE to play online video's such as Youtube. It plays video's from a CD. Firefox plays everything without a problem. When I try to play a video in IE, I get a message that says:

"Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of of Adobe's Flash Player".

I have installed a new copy of Java (I know Java and Javascript are not the same thing) and a new copy of Adobe Flash player, updated video and audio drivers from the mobo chipset manufacturer (Nvidia). Scripting is "enabled" in the security section and internet security is set to "medium" in IE "internet options". I started with IE6, then upgraded to IE7.

This computer is on a wireless network and the other two computers play the video's. I have followed (many times) instructions given on the net to turn on JavaScript.

I almost never use IE for anything, however, I would like for it to work.

Appreciate all suggestions

I'm trying to burn some online flash videos to DVD. I've tried many methods, and have gotten anywhere from ok quality to absolutely terrible quality. I've tried multiple Mozilla Firefox add-ons (UnPlug, Amazing Media Browser, VideoDownloader, Greasemonkey) and then burning to a disc with a few different programs (the best being TMPGEnc DVD Author). Does anyone have any suggestions on a method of burning online flash videos to DVD with good quality?

Also, I'm looking for a good DVD authoring program that allows the creation of menus. So far, the best I've found is TMPGEnc DVD Author Trial. The full version cost $70 though! Are there any good free programs? I do own Roxio Easy Media Creator 7, but whenever I try to add a video file, the stupid program freezes.

You appear to have a 6-year old Dell Latitude E6400 laptop.

What's the "service tag" number and/or "express service code" number on it?


That model laptop supports up to 8 GB of RAM, but it appears to have only 2 GB of RAM in it.

You should take advantage of its 64-bit operating system by installing 4 GB or more of RAM in it.

Adding more RAM will also improve speed and "snappiness" in it.

I have experienced problems watching videos or playing music recently were sometimes it lags for a few seconds and the sound becomes very digitized and choppy. Also my computer crashed once this month watching another video, but I didn't get the BSOD. The same thing happened this time, only if froze and then I got the BSOD.

I don't know if this is related, but I've been experiencing problems during start up with windows. Periodically the computer freezes while loading windows on the 'Please Wait' screen, just before the login screen is displayed. Usually it happens multiple times consecutively, when I restart my computer from the first freeze it freezes again multiple times. I then have to spend the afternoon trying to turn my computer on, until I can get to the login screen without the computer freezing. This problem started in September, but is a periodic occurrence. I mentioned this because I thought it might be related, if it isn't should I post a new thread about it?

I've got a hardware problem too, but that's probably unrelated. The laptop speakers randomly stopped working a few months ago, I'm planning on sending it in to get fixed soon. Just thought I'd mention it in case it's relevant somehow... Read more

Hi, I am posting with regards to BSOD I have been receiving for quite some time now. It mainly occurs whilst streaming video online, and when I did a google search I found this post on here.


When this problem first arose, some time ago, I checked to ensure it wasn't a RAM problem (The Ram modules were replaced), and then that it wasn't an overheating problem (installed a new heatsync and fan, and case fan).

However, it still remains as persistant as ever and as such I was hopeful someone here could diagnose the problem. Any help is greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance for your time.

Kind regards.

If you use MSE... use only that and maybe Malwarebytes... but nothing with double functions (hope you get what I mean).... English is not my first language...

1-Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp,sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller http://www.duplexsecure.com/en/downloads

when you're done you can use this Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) in its place.

Dumps - too many to count or test...
But, some point to driver, memory or other Hardware errors. We'll need to do some checking and testing for that...

Old drivers:

slserv 72.07 KB (73,796 bytes) 08/01/2004 16:41 Smart Link c:\windows\system32\slserv.exe

Normally modem software. Delete it, it is not fit for W7.

Have you checked if you get BSOD while running in Safe Mode? Try that please.
Also try: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Most common dump: 7F

Usual causes: Memory corruption, Hardware (memory in particular), Overclocking failure, Installing a faulty or mismatched hardware (especially memory) or a failure after installing it... Read more

Hi everyone.

When I try to watch full 1080 hd on my computer it seems to be laggy/choppy and is very frustrating and annoying. Recently I downloaded "Avid Media Composer" and before this i do not recall having any problems, but then again I didnt watch that much HD footage on my lap top, so I dont know if it's made a difference or not, could it? would it? Also, this is HD on the internet, like Youtube, Vimeo etc. Please Help me!

HP pavilion entertainment PC (pavilion dv5, with the finger swipe thing)
Intel centrino 2 inside
Windows vista
Lap top is fairly new, had it about a year now.

Also, to try and solve the problem I downloaded the latest DivX player, with codec's, thought that would help but no? unless i have to unzip whatever i downloaded and do more, I just assume the codec's were installed and used or something...I dunno. I also downloaded a Microsoft DirectX End-User Runtime Web, and it KIND of helped, its a little smoother, but still not smooth enough, it's just really frustrating! Please help me, Anything i can download to help? something I should do, let me know! Thanks everyone!


A:HD video is laggy/choppy online.

New Discovery:

720p is smoother but still not how it should be with the DirectX download
1080p is TERRIBLE, it cut's so many frames, and is very bad, extremly laggy and choppy. Help!

I went on my computer yesterday (Windows XP) and was having problems playing videos. I only get a few seconds of choppy video and then it goes black. (YouTube,Yahoo, etc)

I then tried playing a video file on my computer and it worked fine, except there was no audio. I tried .wma in Windows Media Player and .mp3 songs in Itunes, no sound.

I scanned my computer with MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware and it didn't find anything. I then restarted the computer and everything was working fine.

But today (about the same time as yesterday) I had the same problem. All of a sudden, online videos stopped working and audio was gone.

Restarted it again and now it's back to normal.

What could the problem be?
Microsoft Windows XP
Home Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 3
Dell Dimension DIMC521
AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual
Core Processor 4000+
2.10 GHz, 1.93 GB or RAM

I have no idea where to post this.

I am running Win 7 and I have an odd problem with only SOME youtube videos or other online video streams (NHL.com)

Some videos will work and play fine...some will play and the audio and video will continue, but the actual video is garbled/green, kind of like a blocked cable channel sometimes.

Does anyone have any clue where to start on this. I am not sure, but is AVG anti virus doing this?

Weird thing is - on NHL.com videos, the commercial that plays before the video you select plays normally, but then when the highlight video starts it is all messed up!

A:Garbled online video playback sometimes

Right-click on the video and click Settings. There, go to the far-left tab and uncheck "Use hardware acceleration."

My problem is kinda peculiar. I can DL and start to watch the video, but then it pauses and stops or in youtube's case goes to the menu screen for another video.

A:Troubles playing Online Video

Still having the same problem. I use Opera mainly, but it happens w/ other borwsers also. If I go to G4TV.com and try to watch a video it'll get the whole buffer stream start to play and then pause and move on to the next video or menu screen. I'm not sure how this started. When it started is about a month ago. I know this isn't a common problem, but its very annoying and starting to piss me off!

Hi all I had posted this before and received some replies which did not work. Here's an altered copy of the old message and my new notes after trying out different things, any more ideas?

I have been viewing some shows online, through totally legal ways, and recently the software that views them seems to stop working. The windows media player works with everything else with no problem (I have ed. 10) for downloaded files not the online files which are either wmw or asf extension. When I click on the links where the file is the pop up window opens and the screen looks kind of weird where the buttons have moved up to the top and the black section has become narrow and everything looks displaced in a way. I don't have the problem with saved files on my disk. Only these online files like live tv. As this happened out of the blue I have no idea what is wrong.

What I have tried:

Unfortunately changing the program to open with into something else (for exp. quicktime) didn't work.

I have viewed the exact files before many times. And no I don't think that he has to do with copyright issues as these are open to public files.

I cannot download any of the files in to my computer to try and open with Flashget it can't resolve host name.

I have tried opening up the URLs directly on WMP and the error I got was "The source filter for this file could not be loaded"

Interestingly enough my WMP works just fine with regular files but not with anything that I try ... Read more

A:problems with online video viewing

Hi, did this perhaps happen after upgrading to wmp 10? If so, the same thing has happened to me, I've spent several hours on the phone to microsoft and the best they have to offer (after trying slmost everthing else) is to reformat and go back to wmp 9. I have been fighting this for 2 weeks now and am resisting yet another reformat.

Sorry I don't have an answer for you, but I will keep an eye on this thread and trying everything found.
I have noticed that I can play mpegs already on my hardrive, but I only get audio and perhaps the first frame of video from anything downloaded from the internet. Also, I cannot completely uninstall wmp 10 nor completely reinstall wmp 9.

Microsoft has no answers.
Watching with interest...

Hi, my daughter's pc didn't have a fantastic spec. Half a gig of RAM, & onboard video. She was using a wifi dongle to go online. The playback of videos online is awful. Very choppy in anything higher than 480p.

I wired the pc directly to the router, to hopefully increase her download speed, added an extra 2Gb of RAM, and fitted a 1Gb graphics card, but video is still choppy. On YouTube, having the resolution set at 480p isn't too bad, but anything higher than that keeps stopping & starting, even when the video isn't full screen.

Surely the spec of her pc should now be able to play YouTube videos in HD smoothly?

Win 7 Ultimate (32 bit)
AMD Sempron 3400+ 1.8GHz
2.5Gb of RAM

I did a broadband speed test, & that's coming back as 87.93Mb/s download, & 24.38Mb/s upload.

I was thinking of upgrading the processor to an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ 2.6GHz, dual core, as it's supposed to be a direct swap, but I don't know if that would solve the video choppiness problem.

Any ideas how I can resolve this problem, please?

Cheers, P.

I'm not a noob when it comes to computers but I am having a little difficulty with a few things with an older computer of mine. Located in my C: drive I have a few folders that have random letters/numbers and inside has more folders with 4 digit numbers. I cannot delete these folders and I also do not have the option to change the permissions/security settings.. When I right click the folder and go to properties.. the security tab doesn't really show anything useful.. not even advanced.. Also.. I can't access my 'i386' folder to reinstall my Windows XP because it's denying me permission or something. I also have a hard time when watching online streams/videos (Youtube, etc) because the video lags and is choppy. I realize I am using an older computer, but there should be some sort of way I can reset everything, delete EVERYTHING I don't need, repair things, improve things, etc..


Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 SP3

Intel Pentium 4 1.50 GHz 1.51 GHz, 736MB RAM

I'm basically asking for not only a way to make it so I can watch videos/streams without lag but I am also looking for way to delete everything from the computer that I don't need, including services, etc. Whatever I can do to increase CPU/RAM/Video performance.

You mention a lot of things and I'm zeroing in on your idea of reinstalling XP. The updated. i386 folder was in SP2. It should be on your computer at C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\I386.
