video streaming issues

Q: video streaming issues

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 wireless.

I used my iphone (wirelessly connected through my network) on one of the same videos from youtube. Had no issues (so probably not a network problem)

I visited another wireless internet location (local cafe). Same issues on my laptop with video streaming, no issues on my iphone with same videos (so at this point I'm ruling out network problem).

I got an email back from hulu tech support saying that my video graphics card (Mobile Intel Series 4 Chipset) was probably having compatability issues with the latest version of flash. He advised that I uninstall and re-install an older version of flash, version 10.2.159.1. I did that, restarted my computer. Still had the same issues.

Then last night I went to the adobe flash website. They had yet another version of flash, 10.3.181.34 (updated 6/28), stating that this newest version had addressed some compatability issues with video cards. I thought it was probably what was going on when I installed the last version so I uninstalled the older version (10.2.159.1) and re-installed flash with the next version 10.3.181.34. Still had the same issues.

I also updated the INF Utility 9.2.0.1030 (4/21/2011), I'm not sure what that is but it was part of the chipset driver utility package when I looked up drivers for my graphics card and system.

I've also disabled hardware accelerator in my player. Didn't work.

If anyone can help me I'd be very grateful. I've received zero help from Intel or from Asus.


Thanks

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 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.

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?

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,

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!

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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,

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?

Does anybody know how to take streaming video from a website and save it as a regular video file that you can watch anytime without being on the internet? I am talking about Windows Media Player streaming video. Thanks.
 

A:Streaming Video

Sure.
There are freeware programs that can record video and audio files.
You can search Google - don't use any myself. Maybe something like this...
record streaming video freeware -shareware -trial

How do I improve quality of videos that I watch on the computer, or say, logging on cbs' site to watch clips of tv programs? They always seem to be somewhat distorted. Would the latest version of direct x help?

Hiya

yep, it would. Also, and this is just a maybe as some sites are getting more involved, you might want DivX:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/directx/downloads/default.asp

http://www.divx.com/divx/

Also, you will want to improve your browser speed:

Go to Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, delete offline content. Also, clear the History.

Content tab, under AutoComplete, clear Forms and Passwords.

Advanced tab, under Browsing, look for Enable Insta on Demand. Untick.
Under Security, look for Empty Tempory Internet... Tick.
Apply and OK

Go to Find Files and type in cookie. When found, open the folder, and delete all the cookies found. You won't be able to delete the .dat file found.

For this, go here and get the Spider:

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Also, go here and download AddAware

http://www.lavasoftusa.com/

Download and run, ensuring that Deep Registry scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net. If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

Also, whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates. Just click Connect.

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

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)?

a church has asked me to provide a solution for them to be able to broadcast their services over the net.

it must be portable, and will be servicing +- 30 to 40 online people...

will it require a web site? (As i would avoid this if i can)

there is a 7mb dsl connection in the church.

any suggestions please.

I want to stream my video files from my main computer to my laptop, due to the fact that my laptop has limited space on the hard drive. I've tried using VideoLAN to do it but I can't seem to get it to work. Can you offer any other programs that can do what I want?

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

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.

Doe anyone know of any good software we can use to stream high quality video (preferably MPEG) over the Internet? We have a high speed line, and a very high quality camera.

Thanks a lot,
Dan
 

A:Video Streaming (HELP!)

Most NLE's have rendering codecs built in that will allow you to render in many different formats. If its MPEG you want, just capture your video, then encode to MPEG-- and you are good to go. You willl need a place to host your files because they tend to be big and not conducive to emailing.

I use Real Player for that. It will download any embedded video clip, not just Youtube.
