stuttering YouTube videos

Q: stuttering YouTube videos

This is driving me crazy. Every YouTube vid moves inside the window like someone behind the camera is shaking it violently. The motion distorts into mosaic-like pixelation. I have noticed that this happens only when there is actual motion in the video.
 
For example, if someone is moving. If there is a still shot of the person, or if just a bunch of text is shown, no stuttering occurs.
 
And, if I move my cursor constantly inside the vid while it plays, the stuttering stops, but I can't continuously do that!
 
We're talking about a Windows 7 Fujitsu on Firefox with the latest updates. It's on a university server in Japan, hardwire connected, not wifi.
 
A wifi connected Panasonic laptop with Windows 8 shows none of this.

I am experiencing an issue whereby videos refuse to play smoothly in IE (or Chrome for that matter, just on a PC in general). 

It's a Lenovo P50s 
It has the latest GPU drivers from Nvidia

I cannot figure out why the videos refuse to play properly.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hello,in order to help people who are interested in the ThinkPad P50,I recorded 14 videos of benchmarks and gameplay and posted them on my new YouTube channel:https://www.youtube.com/user/KatastropoulosI think the videos show off the capabilities of the NVidia M1000M GPU in the P50.I hope that I can help people who are interested in the machine to make a decision if the GPU power is sufficient for them or not. Before I bought this machine, I had problems getting information on its performance, especially in gaming. I made videos on following games/benchmarks:Half Life 2 Episode OneHalf Life 2 Episode TwoMetro 2033The Witcher 2Risen 2Risen 3Oddworld - New 'n' TastyGothic 3Tomb RaiderGRID 2Unigine Heaven 4Unigine ValleyFinal Fantasy XIVI made benchmarks some time ago and posted the results on my blog, you can find them here:https://ikarios.wordpress.com/2016/03/09/performance-comparison-between-thinkpad-p50-with-nvidia-m10...4200m/ Best regards, Janni

This is getting to be frustrating. I just bought a new Vaio laptop with the following specs:

Intel Core i3 370M 2.4 GHz processor
4GB of RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470
500GB HDD
17" monitor
Blu-ray player

I can watch YouTube videos only if they're embedded on other pages or if I copy the url from the embed code. On YouTube, I get these strange artifacts, and while I can hear the video playing, I cannot actually watch it. This is frustrating, obviously, and I don't know what to do because nobody else's problem seems to match mine exactly (they receive error messages and the like).

EDIT: I have fixed the problem. Turned off hardware acceleration in the settings menu. Thank you all for your help.

Hi guys,
I have just re-formatted my windows7 for the second time in about a week. everything is working as intended with exception to online flash videos. Youtube videos are functioning, because they are using HTML5 i suspect.
An interesting note: upon reformat and installing of my mobo drivers, i installed Avast AV and then went to animefreak.tv to check the functionality of my flash player. I was able to watch the latest episodes of Naruto Shippuden and then i got back to installing security addons for my Firefox browser. After doing this, my flash player is not opening videos on that same website i just mentioned, nor on primewire.ag (which i used without problems up until my re-format about a week ago).
I have not installed any WindowsUpdates, as right now i'm not sure that i won't re-format again to try this all over to eliminate this problem.
I am playing Star Trek Online right now, it is operating just fine, all other functions of my OS seem to be OK, just this flash video issue is all the problem that i can detect at the moment. I use my PC for browsing the web, investigating government intrusion into personal rights mainly, and also for recreation like video games and the aforementioned movie and anime viewing..
I suspect that my security addons to Firefox might be getting in the way of my flash video viewing.. I currently have 'play DRM content' disabled as snooping and tracking are my mortal enemies online..

Hi all,

Im new here, and I hear this is the best place to get help with my current issue. Recently I installed beta drivers from amd (14.6) and whenever I watch videos on you tube or facebook I get a bluescreen shortly after. It goes so quick that I cant really read what the problem is, but when I go check in reliability report I see this.

Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 256_1


Now I have since changed to a different beta driver (14.7) and It wasn't happening yesterday but today Im getting blue screens again when watching videos. I am currently back on 14.4 (official release) and it hasn't happened yet although its only been a few hours. truthfully I don't even know if its the video card drivers that could be causing but its only thing I have modified on the system since the problem started.

Any help or advice you guys can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance!

Hi,

Last night and today I noticed that with every YouTube video that I watch, somewhere in the video, is a one second sort of stutter of the audio. When I go back to that moment, I don't hear it. But it has the kind of sound of when a windows computer crashes, but only for one second, maybe less. The headset I am using is only 2 weeks old, and I don't think anything should be wrong with it.

Help is appreciated.

Internet speed is 30mb/sec so no problems there. All the drivers are up to date.

its could be something simple!
have you tried changing your ethernet cable?

or if your using wireless it could be your router. I had a cheap crappy on from my isp which was not capable of streaming media properly, I swapped it out for a 5ghz netgear one and had no issues since.

do you have an aftermarket firewall? or a stupidly over protective virus scanner? if so disable these and give it a try.

do you get reliable download speeds? I know you say you get 30mb/s but do you get like decent speeds on large files? id expect at least 10mbps,if your getting kbps then you have an issue!!

This has been happening for a few months now. The buzzing/stuttering varies and it's quite annoying. It only happens when I watch YouTube videos or just videos in general. I'm not sure if it's a hardware problem or just a driver problem. I have a similar problem as these people: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3517/t/19412524.aspx except that my computer model isn't a Dell. My main browser if Google Chrome if that helps.

I ran DPC Latency Checker and this came up:
Some device drivers on this machine behave bad and will probably cause drop-outs in real-time audio and/or video streams. To isolate the misbehaving driver use Device Manager and disable/re-enable various devices, one at a time. Try network and W-LAN adapters, modems, internal sound devices, USB host controllers, etc.

I assume, from your post, that this is only with on-line media.

Internet connection and speeds or congestion can cause what you are hearing. I have a high speed cable line (80 Mb/sec) and occasionally I get buffering on youtube. The originating server can cause this too.

Run a speed test and see what you come up with.

Hi,

My work computer has been very slow for some time now. It's running Windows XP SP3 on an Intel P4 2.4 GHz with 1.5 GB of RAM (I went up from 768 MB to 1 GB, then to 1.5 GB hoping it would solve some of my issues, but it didn't). It also has an NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX/MX400, so it's not even running on an integrated graphics card. It is extremely slow to start-up (despite getting rid of startup entries), and YouTube videos are always choppy. SiriusXM streaming radio also skips (but strangely enough, Spotify doesn't). Temperatures are in normal ranges so it doesn't seem to be overheating.

I know this system is somewhat ancient, but it should be able to handle the basic functions (internet browsing and work applications) I throw at it. I've cleaned thoroughly with CCleaner and MalwareBytes. I even got rid of Norton and installed Avast, since I know Norton is a huge resource hog.

Need Help
My old laptop has been having a stuttering problem with games for a couple of years now. It?ll stutter for around five seconds, run smooth for around ten seconds, stutter again for five, run smooth for ten. It?ll keep doing that until I stop playing and close the game. It doesn?t start doing the stutter the second I start the game, it?ll start maybe around five minutes into the game and not quit its pattern. It doesn?t matter what game, how old it is, it does this to all.

It also does this while watching online videos. I can?t watch anything on, for example, Hulu, or Gametrailers, without it doing the same stutter pattern.

I didn?t always have this annoyance. It started little over a year after I bought my laptop. During all this time, while putting up with the problem, I?ve done several clean installs. I?ve tried to solve this myself, but never could find anyone with the same exact problem.

I?ve uploaded several videos that show the stutter problem:

i am using Catalyst 9.12 drivers.

i had this problem with my old video card (GeForce 8800GTS) too.

i have done some googling and other people have had this problem, for some it was their drivers. others have had success with changing the output settings under DirectShow Video in media player classic. i have tried that, but it still happens, so i am thinking it is definitely a driver issue.

has anyone else had this problem? and if so how were u able to solve it?

After my computer did its usual updates, I've noticed a sound issue whenever I've been trying to play games/watch videos. At regular intervals the audio will freeze/skip for a second and make a loud grinding noise, then resume. This happens with music, streaming videos, games, pretty much everything. If I'm watching a video or playing a game, the screen will freeze for a second, then resume.

I'm using a Dell Inspiron N4110 laptop with Windows 7

I assume I need to install a new driver or something, but I am pretty computer illiterate and don't exactly know what I need/where I need to get it from/how to figure out what I need.

Was hoping someone could help here.

A:Audio buzzing/stuttering during videos/games

Since the screen will "freeze", suggests the sound problems are just a result of whatever is causing the PC to hang up and not directly a sound problem. Thus another forum section would be more applicable than the sound section.

You can run the Resplendence Latency Mon program and that may help, if you can figure it out as it gives you "information overload".

Hi takotakumi,  There are 2 posibile reason for the issue. 1st is software and the 2nd is hardware. Lets try to check both. For software try loading the system in safe mode, to check if there was any 3rd party software was causing the issue. If it is software issue, try and isolate the software causing the issue by un-installing the software.  For hardware try running Lenovo Solution Center or Lenovo Companion for hardware diagnostic back in windows normal mode. If you find any hardware issue after the diagnostic test then better to call Lenovo Warranty Support for assistance. You can get in-touch with Lenovo by clicking on the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page under Support. Also try updating the drivers for the video card of the system.Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers,

I will will be playing team fortress 2 and for about half an hour the game is fine then all of a sudden it starts stuttering madly every time it has to access the HD. It will not cease once it has started and the game becomes unplayable.

Also if I am playing streaming videos online the video will pause while the audio continues and then jump to the correct point again after a few seconds. This will happen a cpl times every minute.

Also when typing in boxes like this the words will freeze for a few seconds before spewing out in a big chunk. Also when scrolling a webpage the same thing happens. I will scroll and it locks up then I keep scrolling and the computer beep noise sounds from the mobo then it unclogs again.

Every time I turn my computer on (after it was completely off) again which I do a lot as this laptop is so fast to turn off and on, the video streaming does not work.
So after I turn on I go to the bbc, Facebook, youtube, or other streaming sites the video loads and I can click play though it does not actually play, just a still image. same on every website. so to fix this I have to restart the computer, then it works. So for some reason turning the computer off causes this and restarting it fixes it - seems strange to me though more irritating 
Second issue is that again online streaming videos stutter all websites all browsers (chrome internet explorer etc.). I have fixed this though by setting Nvidia to be used for the browsers instead of intel. Though this solution uses more power and might be related to the other problem.
This problem has been here since I got the laptop in December 2015, have updated to all the latest drivers bios, applications etc. What else can I do ???

Any help with the videos not playing would be greatly appreciated it is so annoying to turn on the computer go to websites then find you can't play the videos, then remembering you have to restart.

A:Dell XPS 15 9550 Videos online do not play after computer is turned off, also video stuttering

 How are you shutting it down? If you use the standard "Start Menu" > "Power" > "Shutdown", it does not completely shut it down. It saves part of memory in a hibernation file which allows it to quickly restart. This could cause issues when you start up again. If you have not tried this, set up a desktop shortcut (right-click on an empty spot on the desktop, select "New" > "Shortcut" and enter "shutdown /s /t 0" in the box (that's "shutdown" + space + forward slash+"s" + space + forward slash+"t" + space + "0" [the number zero]) without the quotes. Click "Next" and give the shortcut a name, then "OK". This will shut the computer down completely.
  The other option is to disable "Fast Startup". That should accomplish the same thing. See if either of these help.

I removed AVAST! by way REVO because i thought that was the problem did not make a difference.
I still have mouse pointer with the little blinking hour glass and have not figured how to stop that,i still think that the flash player popup is connected to my pointer/hour glass blinking problem,because i thought there was a bogus flash player that was going around any ideas why this getting to be a real problem and i am down to my last two brain cells right now,thanks

After a disaster with the IncrediMail email program, I switched to Thunderbird for a email client.
However I can not see YouTube videos. I know these are .flv extensions but all I get a is large black box with no controls (play, Pause etc.)
I downloaded a copy of a player that will play .flv but it does not automatically play YouTube clips. If I copy the .flv file somewhere else (outside of Thunderbird) it plays OK.
How can I get Thunderbird to paly these video clips? Or do you know a better email client?
Thanks for your help.

I have some videos on my tablet, but I don't remember how I originally got them. Is it possible to download videos from YouTube and put them in my videos folder on my tablet to play when I want them to play?
If so, how would I do that?

If I remember correctly, there was a YouTube Downloader program, but I believe I had to delete it because it was supposed to cause problems and load a lot of "junK" ads, etc., on the computer.

Any help on how I can get the YouTube videos would be appreciated.
 

A:YouTube videos

The only way to get YouTube videos is to click on the download button. Most don't have it because they are not available for download. The use of any third party software to do this goes against their TOS and of course we don't support or assist with such activity.

I don't know if this question violates the copyright rules or not. There are a number of "free" downloaders you can use (just do a google search), or free websites like Keepvid.com

when i use firefox 4 rc or google chrome 11 latest, i get problems with youtube videos. When i switch them to 720p or higher the video freezes but the sound continues to play. I tried this in ie8, and its fine there. Both my adobe flash active x and plugins are the latest 10.2.152.32. What could be going on? Should i be concerned since they are both not the final stable versions? If not how do i fix this?

Firefox 4 RC is not a final version and Flash player is a boulet for internet. You can try to re-install the flash version of firefox, you can also try the HTML5 version of youtube YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
