Choppy Streaming on NFL football

Q: Choppy Streaming on NFL football

My OS is Windows XP...my video card is Intel828456/GL/GE/PE/GV graphics controller 6.1410.4342. I don't know how to find out if this card is a 64 or 128 and this appears to be important to good live streaming. You will probably require more information to attempt to answer this question, please just let me know what you need. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Choppy Streaming on NFL football

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.)

Using Firefox / Win XP. SP3

I've long given up on trying to diagnose & fix my irritating problem of hiccuping, herky-jerky playback when I want to watch online vids. I tried to ask Netflix people. Nothing.

I don't know if it's some kind of registry corruption or what.
I tried downloading some video acceleration program & adjusting certain settings in the Troubleshoot tab of "hardware acceleration". (set to full)

What now?

A:Fed up of choppy streaming!

So is this just on Netflix or on other sites like Youtube? I ask this because Netflix uses Silverlight and most other sites use Flash. If you're having trouble with both, you may have to tinker with your browser security settings. But if it's just Netflix, the problem may just be with Silverlight.

my streaming video has been getting worse and worse. A couple weeks ago it started getting choppy occasionally, but it didn't happen every time. Now, it does - sometimes it will play well longer than others, but it always gets choppy and unwatchable by about 10 minutes in. Also, if I leave the window the player is in, the player very frequently will crash, whether it's Flash player or Divx.

I'm running Vista on a pretty old machine, any specs you need please let me know.

I cleared my browser history, and that really didn't help.

While streaming video the picture is choppy and/or stutters. This has been happening for several months now. I have checked the download speed from Speedtest.net and it is always around 85 - 90 MBps so that is not the problem. I have used Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Opera, all with the same results. Cache has been cleared from browsers also. Also have tried pausing video for about 5-10 minutes so video could fully download, but that did not help either. I sure there are an infinte amount of possible problems causing this, but what are some of the more likely problems? Laptop is 6 years old now but is snappy in performing everything else. RE:    HP DV7-4270us   Windows 7 64-bit  4GB RAM Thank you for any advice you could provide.

Hello, for some months now, streaming music to my BT-connected HiFi has occasionally become very choppy. It happens mainly when I'm doing stuff on the laptop such as browsing Internet or using a word processor. The breaks may increase when the fan noise increases, indicating perhaps insufficient CPU ressources, but not necessarily, i.e. it can happen when the fan is off. Aware of issues between Intel BT drivers and recent Windows updates, I have uninstalled KB3133977, 3161608 and 3172605, without success.
I have Windows 7 SP 1 running on a 2.2 GHz, 2 GB RAM system.
My BT radio is Intel? Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN on Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless Bluetooth(R) 3.0 + High Speed Adapter, and no driver update is available as it probably is too old (2006).
I had always been able to stream radios without any problem. What could happen?
I'm desperate, can you please suggest any fix?

Hi, first off, I would like to apologize to this forum for forgetting to say "thank you" for solving my earlier problem with another laptop, so...Thank you!
This time, my other laptop is having its own troubles.

When I stream videos online, everything is smooth for about 2 minutes, and then, the video gets all choppy/laggy. The same thing happens with online games. Also, when I play installed games that my computer should handle easily, it still gets choppy from time to time. Here are my computer specifications:

Check to see if your drivers are current

Open Device Manager - Windows Help

Or just use the search feature in Win 8 and type device manager. If no yellow indicators drivers are current. You may also go to the manufacturer's website and check for the latest drivers to download.

When I watch a live event, the feed becomes choppy, then the video stops. The audio continues. The video requires Windows Media Player.

My speedtest results show that currently my upload speed is 0.31 mbps and my download is 0.35 mpbs. Usually I get about 4.5 mb download and I have no idea why it's suddenly so slow. This has been like this for round about a week. Could be the ISP but even they wouldn't throttle the speed non-stop for 7 days... Have another laptop connected which is also having the same issues.

Not sure what specs you want so let me know and I'll grab them for you.

Flash player was updated recently and it seems to be a problematic update from what I can find, but it must be the low download speed causing this, right?

Any ideas, anyone?

A:Choppy video streaming suddenly

m0le, when two computers are slow on the same amount on the same connection I have to blame the connection.

I think you need to get in touch with the ISP and have them resolve this issue.

Where I am if you still have connectivity they can usually get diagnostic readings remotely.

Here in New Jersey, USA I would call my ISP and they would roll a truck. The technician would have a meter to hookup to the line coming into the house and measure signal levels. I'm on 101 Megabit cable. When I went back to cable internet from DSL (4Megabit) even though the TV picture was fine, no internet. The tech came out on a Sunday, measured line levels and diagnosed bad connectors. He replaced the connectors at each end of the cable drop to the house. Problem solved.

We had DSL at work and it kept getting slower and slower. We went to cable internet, problem solved.

Good Luck

Please reference closed thread below. I am still having major problems streaming live and "youtube like" streaming videos, choppiness being the main problem, sticky video, audio is fine.


I have since given my PC 2 GB of ram, a new video card and monitor. No improvement.

The new RAM has made my computer run better in other areas, so I still feel the money was well spent.

My question is, should I purchase and use a registry cleaner like this one?:

http://www.scanerrors.com/?t202id=214717&t202kw=Choppy Video

I downloaded it and did a full scan, and it found over 300 errors. Of course, if I want them fixed I have to pay the $40.

I am out of ideas and frustrated beyond belief with streaming sticky video. It seems like I am the only one with this problem that cannot find a solution.

Is there a freeware registry cleaner that could help me? Or is the registry cleaner that I posted the link to above recommended?

I don't mind spending the money on a program, but if it doesn't work to help my choppy video it will only add to my problems.

Any advice would be appreciated.

A:Still Choppy Video Streaming Problems

choppy videos could just be a bandwidth issue from the sites, if they don't deliver the video quick enough to your computer it will be choppy. it could be a codec issue as well, i always down load two media players and between the two they have the codecs i need they are VLC player and Divx player, just download and install them. The next two programs are free versions that i download they are malwarebytes and superantispyware. Besides malware they go after cookies, temp files and such including some registery issues. as for registry cleaners i stay away from them. if you do want to use one backup your registery first and set a system restore point. in my opinion there are no good registry cleaners becuase computers vary way to much to guarantee a good outcome.

I have an older computer:

Windows XP Pro
Version 2002
Pentium 4
2.50 GHZ
512 RAM
C Drive 120 GB (70 GB free)

My trouble is while viewing streaming video from the internet, the video is extremely choppy to the point of being unwatchable. The sound for the video streams fine, but the video itself skips and pauses for a second or two every two or three seconds, randomly. It never runs smooth.

A good example of a website that does this is trying to view Hockey highlights from games on ESPN.COM. Very choppy.

It wasn't always choppy on ESPN, but now they are. I don't know what happened, to change how the videos play.

Most videos from YouTube stream fine.

Other sites do not, like ESPN.

Videos downloaded and viewed play fine.

I've googled and searched, and found possible solutions from I need more memory on my PC to Flash video is just terrible, live with it.

So far I've tried (all from ideas from searches):

-changing hardware acceleration from none to full and every setting in between
-removing unused programs
-disabling background virus scans
-unchecking "enable write combining" in display properties
-reducing other applications during streaming video viewing. Actually, when I view a video stream there is email and max 3 Firefox windows open. CPU is quiet and other FF windows are not streaming anything.
-Update drivers (they already were)
-update flash (it already is)
-update flash plugins (already were)
-go backward, and use ear... Read more

We are experiencing choppy video on streaming from Netflix on our wireless HP dv7-3180us notebook computer. We have called our service provider and they have checked our connection to our modem with no issues found. We have tried connecting the HP laptop
directly to the router using ethernet with the same results. We have even tried connecting the HP laptop directly to our cable modem with the same results. The choppiness can start right from the beginning or maybe 5-10 minutes into the movie. It varies. We
have tested both Chrome and Firefox both exhibit the same results. We have IE9 64bit and it won't play streaming videos because the Silverlight plugin is not compatible with IE9 64 bit yet. We have called Norton for their support and their supervisor tested
our computer for viruses and what. They even uninstalled Norton Security Suite and there appeared to be a noticeable lag in opening applications like the Start menu with the Security Suite uninstalled. They even re-installed the Nvidia GT 230M drivers with
latest from the NVidia web site with the same results. 
The funny thing is that the streaming works perfectly in Windows Safe mode with Networking Support. We do not know why ? We cannot disable the Hardware Acceleration for the video card because apparently DirectX handles all that for you so its not like Windows

Recently if I click on Flash-type music players on Web pages, playback is interrupted by static and crackles.

For the last month or so online video has been choppy. In troubleshooting the problem I've found that another computer on the same network doesn't have this problem so not the network or internet connection. Neither is the problem about buffering since it'll still be choppy after the entire video has loaded. As well, I can download and save a choppy video and play it back on VLC or even open and play it from within Firefox and it works fine. The problem is only when streaming videos from a website (all websites) whether in Firefox, Chrome or IE.

I've tried updating the Flash Player, DirectX and video card driver, I've tried turning on/off hardware acceleration in Flash, Firefox and Display within Control Panel, I've tried disabling my virus protection and firewall, I've tried locating and disabling startup programs and services associated with none running software programs....Nothing works.

Does anyone have any ideas I could try to fix this?

A:Choppy streaming video playback within browser.

Is this happening at Youtube or elsewhere? Is it just happening at one site or several sites? Link please so I can look at it myself. How much RAM do you have? Be aware that random buffering and choppiness on streaming video sites can be normal even if it doesn't seem normal. One solution is to pause the video and allow it to load completely before playing it.

I know this has probably been asked here several times, but I have been looking through the web for all sorts of little tips and tricks and none of them so far have worked.

I am aware that this is definitely an older computer with an older processor, and if anything, it's probably the cpu that is preventing me from having normal playback with streaming content. I had a laptop with a Core Duo processor that worked fine with this type of video, but I fried it so I am stuck with this for now. Haven't used this PC in a few years so now I am noticing it's limitations as far as this stuff goes. If anyone has had any luck with an older machine getting relatively normal playback with these streams, please let me know. I have tried reducing hardware acceleration, drivers are fully updated for graphics card, hard drive is formatted so no viri are causing this, reinstalling flash, changing settings on monitor, and playback is the same.

If I join a homegroup on my windows 8.1 PC (with my wife and daughter's W7 laptops), whenever I send a video file to play on my LG smart TV (via Plex or DLNA), the playback is choppy with frequent jumps in the image. When I leave the homegroup streaming is perfect. I have replicated the problem a number of times to confirm this e.g. start a playback while in the homegroup = choppy playback, leaving the homegroup = immediate perfect playback.

Any ideas what is causing this problem and suggestions for ways around this?


A:Homegroup causing choppy playback when streaming to smart

It depends on if you are using Wifi or a wired connection. Most people doing streaming are using a dedicated NAS with a wired Ethernet connection, along with a Wireless-n or Wireless-ac router.

BOth make me angry and are so annoying. Also when i listen to jango (that is an internet radio) the audio stops but it is like less than 0.1 seconds and happens every 6 -8. PLEASE HELP. Although i do have DSL this is not due to internet speed because on the online video play (flash player) i can see that some ( an amount of the video thats enough)has already loaded to the point where it should not stop and buffer and oh yeah i watch low quality videos because I have DSL. I have upadated my video driver but not my audio driver (i forgot) but it didn't fix any of these problems. But it might have had no potential in the first place because videos that were already on my computer (hard drive) play fine. Here are some specs about my computer (might be saving some of you the effort of asking). Oh yeah i have reinstalled flash player, mozilla firefox (the browser i always use unless i have to use another one for some reason), and shockwave player. I have the same or similar problem in google chrome. There was a time when i had this probelm and i could use internet explorer to watch videos and they would play fine in Intenet Eplorer but now that probably won't work because internet explorer can't get to those videos because of something similar to error messages or error messgaes (not a connection problem) ...

I have a problem when i streamed video on the web such as Youtube, the video appear choppy and jerky while the audio is running ok. But I could run the video smoothly on 240p resolutions but not higher. Is there any setting on the laptop to improve this?

A:Video streaming on the net appear choppy and jerky while audio is running smoothly

Unfortunately I don't have any inspiring ideas, just some standard ones that I can suggest.

A) Make sure you haven't set the battery settings to low. I know on my lap top if I have it set to the power-saving setting than everything runs pretty poorly.

B) Update video card drivers. Usually my first suggestion for anything video related. Or, if you just updated them, roll back to an older version.

C) Make sure you don't have a lot of stuff running in the back ground. Did you download something recentley and then this started happening? Make sure it isn't doing funny stuff in the back ground.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Like I said, it's nothing unorthodox, really, but hopefully it might help.

A:Computer Moving Choppy,video And Audio Also Is Choppy,Please Help me

Hi reezy and welcome to TSF !

Could be software or hardware. Let's check the hardware first. Please post your system specs (see the link in my sig). If this is a laptop then brand and model will do, if this is a desktop then don't forget the information from the sticker on the side of the power supply block (you'll have to open your case).

Enter the bios at startup by repeatedly pressing del when the computer starts (if del doesn't work, search for some message telling you which key to press to enter setup or have a look at this site). Search for some hardware monitor or PC health screen and report what your cpu temp, fan speed and voltages (+3.3, +5, +12V) are.

does anybody know how to use the editor on fm 2005? could you explain to me how to swap teams into different leagues, could you explain from the begining?


A:Football Manager 2005

OK, first of all when you load up the editor if it asks you to make a backup of your game database, click YES. Things often go wrong when you're editing FM and backing up will save you a lot of stress later on.

When you've done that click on the Competition button on the left-hand menu, then select the competition that you want to edit the teams for. For example, if you want to remove Man Utd from the Premiership and replace them with AC Milan, you select "English Premier Division" from the list.

Then you click on the Teams button in the left-hand menu - this shows all the teams in the division. Highlight Man Utd (or whatever team you want to swap) by clicking on the little triangle/arrow next to the name of the team.

Then click the swap button just under the list of teams. A box will appear asking you to choose what team you want to swap them with. Find the team in the list (or type the name in the box), click on the team, click the Add button.

That should be all it takes.
BTW: Some basic help with the editor can be found in "fm_data_editor_guidelines.pdf" which should be in C:\Program Files\Football Manager 2005\

can anybody tell me how I can cure freezing when watching on thre freefooty site in sopcast, play keeps stopping quite a lot recently, it has been ok till this last week or so, have tried reinstalling to no avail,plus its not giving the option it used to of watching in win media player

A:watching football on Sopcast

If it is streaming media, you will need to ensure that your connection is fast enough.

If it used to be fine and this problem has started recently, I would advise you to try a speed test at a few test sites to see if you are getting the throughput that you should be (speed tests).

You could also look for an excessive number of processes running when your computer is idle. To look at this press ctrl + shift + esc, in the window that loads go to the "Processes" tab. You should have no more than 40, and idealy it would be closer to 30.

OK, so here's my problem. I'm addicted to Football in the USA.

lol ok thats not my problem, thats not a problem at all, my problem is that right now I wanna play some Half-life, but I wanna watch the Colts game thats on right now. I have it on with the 27" behind me, but I want it up on my second 22 LCD right here, how can I do that, without getting a TV Tuner Card. or do i HAVE to get one?

Just think how amazing that will be all year long. to have football on one screen. Watching Tony Romo connect to Owens for a 64 yard Post-In TD with 2 minutes left in the game. (I'm sure it will happen a few times this year) and at the same time I could be shooting people on my other screen in FarCry 2 witch I'll have in a month as I've already ordered it. Or while shooting and blowing things up in Crysis Warhead. I've already got that purchased and can go get it September 15th the day before it comes out.

So, ya let me know what you guys think. I'd love to be able to do this. Let me know how I can.


A:TV Tuner, or Not.. Watching Football.!!!

Hey Gunther, I have a TV card in this thing, but only one monitor, I know I can run two no prob...but I'd luv to see this too.. if it can be done.. I'm on a second monitor ASAP.....CoD4 and the Giants!!!

My computer runs on XP. When I sign on to fantasy football league and went to the draft room it pops up another window and loads the page, then automaticly restarts my computer. I have tried this many times and get the same results. I have take out my anti virus, and turned off the fire wall, the results are the same. There are two laptops in the house running on the same internet connection and they can both connect to this page. The laptops are also running on XP.

I have been a member of a football forum for a few years and have always been able to connect to the "forums" part. In the past week, I cannot connect at all. I thought that maybe I had a virus on my computer so I ran Malwarebytes & Spybot. They both found nothing. I use Mozilla Firefox and I reset it to default settings and that didn't work either.
I can connect to the site and everything in it except the "forums" part. When I try to click on this part, this is what it says: XML Parsing Error: unexpected parser state Location: jar:file:///C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/Mozilla%20Firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/browser/content/browser/aboutneterror/netError.xhtml Line Number 304, Column 68: <div id="ed_connectionFailure">&connectionFailure.longDesc;</div> -------------------------------------------------------------------^
It also says this: The connection has timed out

Any ideas?

A:I've got a 'Football News App' in my taskbar and I don't know how to get rid of it.

If the problem just began recently, go back a week before the problem with system restore.
System Restore - How to
If that does not work, download and use Malwarebytes.
It is free and should be used in conjunction with your AntiVirus. A good anti virus is Microsoft Security Essentials.
Any antivirus may miss malware and that is why Malwarebytes should be used as a weekly scan.
Many of our members scan weekly with Malwarebytes and use Security Essentials, too.

Hi, I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FS315M laptop with the following specification:

Intel Pentium M 740 1.73Ghz CPU
100GB Seagate 7200rpm Hard Drive
128MB Nvidia Geforce Go 6400 Graphics

Do you think I will have any issues running the game? My main concern is my CPU really.

I have been informed that my CPU is equivalent to around a 2GHz Pentium 4 desktop CPU as it has better cache on it or something is this correct?

Thank you for any help.
