Preferred Solution: video/audio are not synced on streaming video

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.)

I captured a video file with a one touch video software. The video and audio on the file came out fine but the audio is not synced properly with the video. I then accessed the video file on my computer with the VCL player and was able to adjust the audio to sync properly with the video where they are now both in sync.

I would like to save this synced file on the VCL player program to my computer and then burn it to disc. Can anyone offer me suggestions on how to do this properly?

Also, can anyone suggest a real good software program that will sync the audio with the video on an unsynced video file with just one easy procedure? Thanks.

Hello. I am trying to watch live video on nbcolympics.com. When I load a video, the advertisement comes up and plays, then when the streaming loads, the video goes black, but I can hear the audio .

Any suggestions? I'm running an intel i7 on Win7 ATI Mobility Radeon HD 58XX graphics card. I have tried upgrading my drivers, to no avail...
 

Answer:Solved: Streaming Video - Audio, no Video

I found the solution on another website - disabling hardware acceleration by right clicking on the video and going to 'settings' resolves this issue. Then the browser needs to be restarted.

Apparently its a fairly common problem with the current Flash build.

I have a problem that I can't quite figure out.

I went away for the summer for work, and while i was gone somebody was messing around with my computer.
When I got back i noticed i have no audio on any of my streaming videos on websites like google video, youtube or break.com
The wierd thing is I do get audio one or two smaller websites that don't host off of those 'big names'.
Anyhow I tried to solve the problem myself but have found no luck.
I tried virus scans, spyware, any kind of scanner they have listed on the net.
I reinstalled internet explorer, i tried using fire fox. No avail. All sound settings are set to high, and i double checked on both the browser and control panel (my music works perfectly). I reinstalled quick time and windows media player even followed some wanky instructions on the net to figure it out but to no avail.
The only solution I could think of is doing a system restore, but I've modified my computer so much and its been so long since the computers been running since the problem cropped up that I dont think it will work and I dont want to try to change it.

Anybody help?

Thanks

have you tried deleting your cookies and temporary internet files? windows allocates a certain amount of space to the browser for downloaded internet files, i suspect this space has been filled, think of it like an overflowing bin in your front room, if you try to fill it too much, it will just end up all over the floor.

to delete the temporary files, just find the (internet)options within the tools dropdown menu on all browsers, there will be something saying cookies or temporary internet files in there and click remove/delete files.

Hi everyone. I have a large iTunes collection and also a ripped DVD collection on my external hard drive. I understand that, with the right hardware, it is possible to stream this to either my stereo or my TV.

Currently when I want to watch a DVD I take my laptop, connect it to my TV through VGA and then watch through media player.

I'm interested in the option of doing this wirelessly, but am not sure what hardware I need. Ideally I'd like to be able to use my wireless network to stream video from my laptop to any TV in my house, and audio to any TV or to my stereo system.

I guess it's lazy, but otherwise I have to unplug my printer, external hard disk etc. and move it around the house all the time and I'd like to avoid doing that if possible.

Cheers!

Live streaming movies or TV shows from sites like Primewire or Watchseries no matter the link after awhile the audio is a few seconds before the video. This started happening a few months ago.

Hello all, I wish to pick your brains please :)I am wanting to set up a video and audio distribution network in the house.I would like to have a central server with all the video and audio on which is accessible from may be as many as 10 or 12 seperate zone computers.Will it be possible to employ a gigabite network and be able to listen and watch several films and sound tracks in different zones at the same time from the central server? Is this a matter of employing user friendly interface software which will enable you to scroll through menus on the zone computers to pick the tracks/ films from the server? Obviously the hardware spec should be good to any suggestions for server and zone computer spec if its feasible.If I wished to use each of the zone computers for surfing and normal pc word processing etc would it make sense to dual boot and partition them with say media centre for if you wish to use the entertainment network and maybe xp for surfing to try to avoid conflicts?Please offer all advice possible I am sure this should be possible but would need to get a techy to help me set it up but am still a bit unsure if it would work or if their are other observations to be made.

Answer:Video, Audio streaming network

10 - 12 "zone"/client computers? Are you setting up a video-viewing shop?The critical aspect will be your server's ability to service so many clients concurrently, with a worse case scenario of all of them wanting to access the same video or audio file/track.Your client computers configuration can be standard; Media Centre is essentially XP Pro with extra GUI modules integrated, so either will do.I don't know what exactly you would want such a setup for, but I can't see what extra benefits dual-boot capability will give your client PCs.It depends what level of service you intend to provide each client computer ~ the optimum would be the ability to have separate partitions with server based software handling the load balancing and masses of memory so particular files which are in high demand are left resident in memory.As you are struggling with XP/Media Centre for the client PCs already, the server side is going to be a lot more complex (and costly).There simply will not be enough space even in this forum, to reasonably "offer all advice possible".

I performed a couple of google searches trying to find out how to prevent streaming audio/video on our network. Unfortunately, it seems like most of these streaming audio/video formats use random ports, so blocking ports won't work. Can anyone recommend a way (without using a proxy server) to prevent users from accessing streaming audio/video within our network?

Answer:No Video (audio only) When Live Streaming

What exact pages don't work/or what player are they using? YouTube is "streaming" video, so obviously "streaming" video is working.

Most likely, whatever player is used on the page(s) that don't work, needs to be updated or reinstalled.

Streaming video and audio buffersMy computer started buffering streaming video and audio that it didn't do before. The internet connection speed is the same as before. I checked the download speed on speedtest.net and it shows 6 Mbps that I am supposed to receive. I did a ping test at pingtest.net and the ping is 64ms and jitter 4ms. It gave a line quality of B*. The computer is Gateway DX4320-02e with 6 GB memory running Windows 7. It has integrated ATI Radeon HD 4250 graphics. I connect to my home router through a TP-Link Wireless USB adapter. I checked the adapter is working properly by using it on a different computer - a laptop and placing the laptop at the same location as my Gateway desktop in the house, and saw that the same streaming video that buffers on my desktop runs fine on the laptop. This tells me that wifi signal strength and wireless adapter are not the problem. Video saved on my desktop's hard drive runs fine. I have the same problem with streaming music. Songs saved on my hard drive play normally but streaming from the internet buffers.Can I conclude the problem is occurring in my desktop computer? What can I do to find the problem and correct it?

Not sure where this belongs, since it is audio thought here, feel free to move to proper location if there is one...

This has been an issue for me for a long while now and still cant figure out why, I have gone and built another PC with a better sound card but still cannot get any audio.

I have no problems with audio when I am streaming video from a file, but if it is live streaming I get video but no audio, sorry it seems repetitive but just drives me nuts.

I have a hauppauge1600 PCI Tuner card, and I had no problem with the video, nor with the audio when I was in Media Center, and when streaming a video file, I have tried using some streaming programs and havent had any luck, have used: webcamax, unreal, broadcam, adobe flash video encoder, windows media encoder, video lan.... and nothing plays audio

I have also installed codecs, sharks codecs and even bought another tuner card Kworld PCI ATSC Hybrid HDTV Card (PC150-U). Even got a new Creative X-Fi extreme sound card thinking that was going to fix it, but noooooooo....

at wits end at the moment, and about to shelve this again for a few weeks, but this is last resort, can someone point me in right direction or at least help me trouble shoot?

HELP!

Answer:Have video but no Audio, when streaming live

Guess no one wants to mess with this one, and I'll have to shelve it yet once again. I took out the X-Fi sound card, and still have no audio when streaming live, even updated the RealTek Hd audio drivers to latest. so the onboard dont work either on live streaming.

Hi,

I have been using this laptop (Dell inspiron 15r SE) since more than 4 years and it has worked flawlessly.
Although recently I have noticed that while streaming on any browser at more than [email protected] the video starts to lag behind the audio and it becomes quite annoying.
As a temporary fix I have to seek it back or forward a couple seconds before it re-syncs but later it starts desyncing again.
The native resolution has been FHD and I have a decent internet connection.
I use Firefox(Beta) natively but have also tried to stream on chrome but the problem persists.
Also to confirm that it wasn't the hardware that was grossly outdated I played a native 1080p video without any syncing issues.

Any help regard this would be great.

I am currently working on a modeling web site and I want to offer a

online portfolio where models can post their photos, audio and video

files, thus making it a multimedia based portfolio.

Here is the list of the files I plan to allow the models to upload in

their portfolio
Photos - .gif, .jpg, .bmp
Audio - .mpeg, wma, mp3, ram and wav
Video - .avi, .mpeg, .mpg, .ram, and .mov

I am trying to find a way for users of this site to view the audio/video

files without having any file format specific plug-in or player installed

on their desktops. So far I have concluded that it would be best if

somehow I can manage to stream down the audio and video files on the

client’s desktop in Flash format since this would require the clients to

have only a Flash player which is a very common plug-in now a days.

I am seeking a way to convert the various files that models upload i.e

mpeg, wma, mp3, ram, wav, avi, .mpeg, .mpg, .rm, and .mov to a common swf

Flash format.

Is anyone aware of such a tool or piece of application that would

automatically convert all uploaded files to Flash format. Also if there

is a Flash component that would allow real-time streaming of the flash

files in the client’s browser without saving the swf files in the

Internet Cache or Temporary Internet Files folder.

Can somebody help me with this application?

Whenever I try to stream audio the stream always breaks after X number of minutes. I'm not sure just what to set the buffer settings at under preferences ->plug-ins->IN_MP3.dll to stop this.

The odd thing is this - once the stream breaks it will not continue until I finally get up from what I am doing and touch the mouse. Then the stream buffers itself and continues for a while, but it will break again soon. I've deleted all the Shoutcast audio stations from my plylists because it is more hassle than its worth if I have to get up every five or ten minutes to fix the problem. And it seems as if it doesn't matter if the stream stops for five seconds or five minutes - perversely, it will not continue until I get up and attempt to fix it by reselectlng the channel. Although this isn't neccessary - as I said, as soon as I touch the mouse it corrects itself. So I've given up listening to radio and only listen to my mp3 collection. I can't relax to the radio - as soon as I'm relaxed I have to get up and fix the radio (Winamp).

If there's no way to fix it by changing the settings, I wish somebody could write me a script that would detect whenthe stream is broken for more than five or ten seconds, and try to rebuffer and reconnect. I only have so many mp3s to listen to. But as I said before, trying to listen to streaming audio on Winamp is more trouble than its worth. And of Wi... Read more

Hello All,

A bit of a long shot. I have a habit of keeping lots of live music on my Windows 7 Mediacenter as avi video files. I'd really like to be able to stream it to my Wireless Music Player (a Revo Mondo) over UPnP. But being an Audio device, none of the avi files are visible to it.

Has anyone found anyway of getting MCE to transcode the video on the fly to extract the audio and just stream that?

Thanks in advance!

Has anyone seen this problem where you can Stream video with audio just fine but some other sites you just get the video with no audio.

This is from WMP 11. The sites are in arabic, and I don't currently have any links.
 

Answer:Streaming video/audio issue.

Some streaming videos only offer video without any sound. In that case, the volume should be greyed out.

If you're supposed to have sound but it doesn't work, perhaps a codec pack would help, like the K-Lite Codec Pack 4.7.5.

Everything is fine and I like 7 well enough I suppose, but since I installed it I have had stuttering issues with running streaming video and some audio. I have tried using my on board sound with the latest drivers, no love... I even bought an although outdated and out of service but good enough sound card just for this win 7 an audigy se 24bit, fantastic sound for 17 dollars. So the problem is not related to these two different sound hardware sources. I did turn off windows defender since I don't need it, I turned up system power to high performance and yet there is no change in this stuttering problem. I watch video on line courses and it is a terrible distraction to have to deal with such a simple problem that for some reason seems to have no fix. Has anyone any suggestions that might point to something I've missed in win 7. I realize this is not considered a fast machine but it is fast enough for what I did in XP and it should be fast enough for another 32 bit system. Of course there is too much bloat in win 7 and I am still learning what I should turn off or disable, this is just marketing and causing more issues for people that just want a complete functional operating system without all the bloat.

Thanks

Answer:Streaming audio stutter in video while buffering

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

If flash is involved, try turning off hardware acceleration:

You might also want to test using Chrome.

BTW, Malwarebytes Pro is not an antivirus tool.

I'm interested in running a streaming audio/video server on linux. I'm running RedHat 9.0 on a P4 2.66, and I need to know what are the best options available.

I've heard of the Darwin Streaming Server, and Icecast and Shoutcast.

Does anyone have a recommendation? Is there a preferred linux distro and version that should be used?

Thanks.

Have you considered Helix server (from Real)? Its quite efficient, and you can stream live audio/video using Helix Producer if you so desire.

Shoutcast DNAS is great for audio streaming, but not so great for video.

What is the application? Broadcasting live a/v, or mainly streaming static files?

Hi there, recently I had messed with some codecs and stuff to try and watch a certain DVD that was being difficult. I messed up some codecs and such in the process and I couldnt see any streaming video and if I played any streaming audio, the sound would just be a scratch sound, that regardless of how high or low I turned the player's volume, would remain at the same level of "loudness".

So I decided to reformat and just reinstall the drivers from the original discs. I did that, and now I am still having the same problem.

I am using SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio drivers and an ASUS P5NSLI Motherboard.
I can post my system specs if you would like, I just dont know where to go from this point, I was sure a reformat would fix the problem.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I cannot hear audio when streaming video content is being played eg. YouTube videos and webinar videos. I can see the video.

I use Windows Vista Home Premium SP2. HP Notebook, Core2Duo, 2GHz, 3GB RAM.

Further, I also checked through Help & Support on my system, and found that when I go to Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound > Sounds tab, and select any of the programs listed in that tab eg. Asterisk, Critical Battery Alarm, Critical Stop and so on, I cannot hear the test sound when I click on the "Test" icon.

My speakers are turned up full volume. My default sound device is Speakers & Dual Headphones (IDT High Definition Audio Codec), and the message on the tab says "This device is working properly". Other sound devices like Digital Output Device (HDMI) and SPDIF Digital Out via HP Dock are also said to be working properly on the relevant tab.

I can hear audio CDs, downloaded songs from the net, gtalk conversations. I can also record voice and playback without a problem.

Thanks

Answer:[SOLVED] Cannot hear audio on streaming video

Right click the volume Icon in the System Tray and choose Open the Volume Mixer. Make sure Applications and System Sounds is not muted and the Volume is all the way up.

This is my first here. So please be gentile.

I seem to have an irritating sound reverberation in the audio whenever I play a buffered video off the internet.(sounds like in a tunnel). I am on a voice chat IM. So I thought I might be getting some kind of audio or electronic feedback through the system. I checked to see if the mic was off. Also went into Sounds and Media in the control panel of Windows and turned down or off all non essentials that weren't being used. Like MIDI, AUX, LINE and Phone. Didn't work. Never tried to turn off the mic in Sounds and Media because I shriek at the thought of having to go in and turn the mic on every time I voice chat. And the mic IS externally turned off. Any ideas out there?

I use Windows Me V4.90.3000 , IE V5.5, Creative Sound Blaster PCI 16, Conexant SoftK56 Data Fax Voice Speakerphone Modem.

I've noticed that there are no ansers from anyone. Maybe audio reverberation is just a nature of the beast when it comes to streaming video. Let me ask this. Done anyone ells have the same problem with streaming video? Maybe there is nothing there that can be fixed.

Thanks!

I have a need to record some city council meetings from a stream on the web, but my attempts to get something to work haven't been entirely successful. I've been using Camtasia Studio 4.0.

Ive been having a few problems over the last couple of months, and my broadband supply tec support couldnt find a solution. The main problem is the video and audio is not in sync anymore when streaming. Could be trailers on movie sites, or watching episodes on putlocker. and even youtube. The video starts off fine but then it becomes more and more out of sync the longer you stream the video. It does not happen on any videos installed on my harddrive which I use vlc player for. Here are my laptop details. I use google chrome plus as my browser.

Acer aspire 5740
i3, 330m, 2.12ghz,1066mhz fsb
intel graphics media acc. hd up to 1274 mb dvmt

Answer:Audio and video sync problems when streaming

Some said update windows and check what codecs im using. I upgraded the driver for the graphics card and checked my windows updates. Im not sure if this is odd or normal but every security update since 2010 both important and optional say the same thing,

A security issue has been identified that could allow an unauthenticated remote attacker to compromise your system and gain control over it. You can help protect your system by installing this update from microsoft. After you intstall this update, you may have to restart you system.

Is this normal, again would appreciate the help

I installed Vista Business on my computer, with WMP 11.0.6, and after that, I began having trouble streaming both video and audio on my computer. I can't access services such as launch.yahoo or videos on any site - I didn't have this problem when I was running XP Pro, or even in previous installs of Vista.

I've tried disabling both my firewall and anti-virus, and tried each of the following streaming protocols UDP, TCP and HTTP, but am still unable to stream.

Does anyone have any suggestions about what I may have overlooked, or ways to let me stream music/video again? It's just this computer, my laptop with XP pro on it can access launch.yahoo just fine, so I know it's not my internet connection.

The solution was simple - change Video acceleration in windows media player to zero.

Hi,
I am an WP8 user since last December and recently I bought a Seagete Wireless Plus HDD to use in pair with my iPad Air. As always with Apple I had to buy a media player that supports the most common video formats (.avi) with audio format (AC3). After I bought an app I was able to stream play all of my movies on my iPad. Then I decided to do the same on my Nokia 920 with Windows Phone 8.1. Unfortunately I found you that again those formats are not supported on the platform (only Android supports them out of the box). As it is .avi format I was shocked to find our this as it is a Windows format. So here is my questions:
Has anyone found a way to stream video's with .avi video format and AC3 audio formats from Seagete Wireless Plus HDD. On a side note I know there is not WP8 Seagete application but some videos are streamable via thir web application.

I just got a Lenovo U350 and absolutely love it, save for one major issue. Whenever I am watching any sort of streaming video (Netflix, Youtube, etc.) the audio tends to cut out at various points. Once the audio cuts out I am not able to get it back unless I refresh the page, or in some instances close out the browser entirely. I have encountered this problem in both Internet Explorer and Firefox. All other audio works perfectly (Pandora has not once cut out and MP3's work fine.) I first thought this was a problem with Flash, but streaming Netflix uses a different method all together and it experiences the same issues. It is very frustrating to say the least. Does anyone have any recommendations so I can depend on this awesome little machine to work frustration free? Any help would be greatly appreciated. PS I am using Windows 7 with all the latest software updates.

Answer:U350 and audio loss when streaming video.

I've also experienced this, although at much lower frequency. In a month of so of ownership, I've had it happen twice (once on youtube, once on netflix). I am not sure why either. But I would get audio back immediately if I adjust the volume using fn-arrow_key (mute/unmute does not fix it). Not sure if this will work for you. It's not a huge hassle since it doens't happen often and the fix is easy. Good luck.

I recently bought a Intel 520 series 240GB SSD. I took out my old HDD and installed windows 7 ultimate 64bit fresh on the SSD. It was going fine until I would try and play a streaming video from sites like NHL(dot)com or even listen to a podcast from a audio streaming site. After a couple seconds of watching a video my PC freezes and gives me a BSOD and I have to restart. I have the latest drivers for my video card and even my sound card. I will attach my BSOD info files. Could it be a bad SSD? I bought intel because of their reliability, hopefully I don't need to return it

Also, I tried reinstalling Windows 7 again and I have the same issue. I also don't think it is my GPU because I can play games fine.

Hello,

Got a new machine, and installed it fresh windows 8.0 -> 8.1 download/upgraded. I've done what I felt were the basics. Ensured all drivers to knowledge are good, performed work on it. When I seem to be playing games in fullscreen mode, being captured to a streaming software that utilizes an OpenGL capture with a C920 webcam displayed, it will work fine some nights, other nights it will crash repeatedly. Scenarios can be the same. Same game, same activities.

Temperatures of the system are seemingly stable from what I can see. The culprits I'm concerned about are:
- Drivers (Obviously... just don't know the specific knowhow to isolate it from the dump files, would love a point to a direction on how to analyze them properly)
- Potential issue with C920 Logitech webcam
- Potential issue with 3rd sound card plugged in via USB
- Potential issue with video card, but it seems the drivers are up to date.

I've only had this system for about a month. But the bluescreen going down interrupts shows I'm putting on. Instead of blindly learning at a slow pace, I figured I'd try here first.

Thanks and looking forward to working with you and can be eternally grateful for a direction:

Answer:BSOD - 8.1 - When Streaming video/Audio with new machine

I have long suspected stability problems with USB sound cards, but there's just not enough evidence to support me saying that they are the cause of the BSOD's.

Your UEFI/BIOS dates from 2012. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the UEFI/BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard. If possible, use the "inside Windows" flash mechanism (if your OEM provides one) - that is much more forgiving than the traditional (floppy drive) flash method.

So here's my problem

When I watch YouTube videos I get random stutters where the sound skips. The image doesn't seem to freeze though, just the sound

I also get issues with the sound streaming music online, where it pauses for a second and stutters even though it's not buffering.

When this happens, NT Kernel & System shoots up in task manager and uses more CPU than the browser. This by the way happens in every browser, IE, Chrome or Firefox.

It doesn't happen when playing music in iTunes or watching videos from my hard drive.

That being said I'm not posting about a buffering type stutter, I am aware of that and this is not it. This is like basically suddenly the computer has a big spike in memory or cpu usage and the video/sound clip stutters for a sec. But it happens often enough to be very annoying. In a 15 min YouTube clip it happened 10 times.

I have reinstalled my IDT High Definition Codec and my Intel HD Graphics 4000 driver, but still the problem persists.

Any thoughts of what I can do?

Answer:Sound stutters when streaming video or audio online.

Try this test: Start a Youtube video and immediately hit the pause button. Watch the movement of the red progress bar until it fully loads the video. This obviously eliminates any buffering issues if the problem is still there when you try to play the video this way. You might also want to do a speed test on you internet connection. Here are my results:



Now, I know you are convinced that it is absolutely not a buffering issue and you have done nice testing to that end; however, I would still try the tests as described above. Good luck.

Hi,

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?
 

Answer: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.

Hello there members ,

I'm working on my mom's computer again. Last time I was here it had a bunch of viruses, and the good folks here helped a lot to get it functional again. It does not have a virus now, nor malware, but it is extremely slow. Trying to play music from Internet stations or watch youtube videos online is impossible, and overall it feels sluggish.

The Windows Task Manager shows CPU usage pretty low at 4% or so. 71 processes running which doesn't seem high to me. I see System Idle Process, CPU at 99? Not sure that's it though. There's probably about 55% or so available on the C disk drive. I'm about to defrag it and see if that fixes anything, but I'm pretty doubtful.

I've run all the usual anti-spyware (Spybot + Malware bytes), and anti-virus (Avira) but that hasn't helped a thing. What are some things I can do to troubleshoot?

BTW it's Windows XP on this machine. Any assistance is most appreciated

Answer:Slow Computer - Herky / Jerky Streaming Audio Video

Did you used to have the problem before your malware issues? Playing audio and video online could simply be an issue with your Internet connection. When you say playing is impossible, what does that mean, nothing comes out, stuttering.... Have you measured your upload and download speed? Speedtest is fine, if you avoid hitting the ads.What sort of things are sluggish? Page changes, mouse movements, programs starting up.........The System Idle process being 99 means it's not very busy! 71 processes does seem a bit high but these days every man and his dog wants to run a service on your PC. Mine are currently 54. I would have thought that during your malware removal exercise, others in this forum would have indicated what programs and services do not need to be running.

Hello-

Whenever I play streaming video or audio my PC will crash with a BSOD. The error shown is "Driver IRQL Not Less Than Or Equal". Looking at the reports, it references ndis.sys as being the possible culprit.

From what I understand, this has to do with the driver for my network card (Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller) which I have updated, but I continue to get the BSOD and error message. I have also updated my Video Card and Audio drivers but the BSOD is persistent!

I have attached diagnostic files as well as posted the debugging info and system info below. Thanks for your help!

I tried to do as much research as possible so I don't sound too dumb, but I'm pretty sure I'm missing something obvious. I have an old Intel motherboard in venerable CPU tower. My OS is Windows 2000 Professional, and I recently abandoned Explorer for Firefox.

The trouble is this: although I have plenty of memory on the hard drive (10gig), flash players will routinely dump the audio halfway through a segment. Rarely will the thing play through. The audio loss is accompanied by loading loss. Even if I've let the video load, the audio kicks out and it will stream silently for two seconds and pause itself. If I drag the bar a few minutes down the line, it will still be silent, and stream there for two seconds and pause itself.

I have no plug-ins in Firefox. If it's a system conflict, I don't know how to isolate it. I do have Belarc, Aida32, Total Commander, and Security Task Manager. Perhaps they hold answers. I've also seen that virtual memory plays a role, and I'm no longer sure where to set that allowable limit, but I believe it's in line.

Interestingly, pure audio streams never poop out like that. I'm addicted to old time radio, and they work beautifully. It leads me to believe there's some system conflict, but I'm the patient, not a doctor.

Incidentally, the reason I ditched IE for Firefox was that IE tended to take 95-99% of memory usage. Firefox however does the same thing. My systems clean, so sayeth King Nor... Read more

I video conference speeches and process them to VCD format. I capture video on miniDV tape or directly on computer using 1394 (firewire) port. I take audio seperately from mixer into computer using 'audacity' or 'accoustica' program. I use Ulead Video Studio 8 to match video & audio and then process it. These 2 streams match well in the begining, but then these go out of sync by upto 5 sec. Need help urgently.

Using Core2Duo desktop, 4 GB DDR2 RAM (800MHz FSB), SATA Hard Disk 7200 rpm.
 

Answer:Audio-video out of sync in video processing in Ulead Video Studio

The problem is that the framerates are a little bit different and there is no keyframe info for each to keep themselves in sync.

In fact some media companies deliberately introduce keyframe errors so that conversion prgrams and the like don't keep the video and audio in sync.

I'm still waiting for a good solution myself but at least you know you're not the only one with the problem by a long shot.

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.
 

Answer:video playback and streaming. Video card problem or software?

Well, it seems u dont have a hardware problem. this problem occurs only when u r watching videos. so i guess its the media player. take my suggestion, stop using it. Download this pack: KLite Codec Pack. I think the latest version is 3.2. Its got all the codecs u need to play compressed videos, and dvds. Its also got an advanced media player which can play any video u open it with like wmv, dat, mpg, rm, mov, avi, divx..... of course, the codecs for these formats r included in the pack.

Hello tenforums members,
I upgraded my Lenovo U310 laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 a week ago. Everything seems to have upgraded successfully. The only problem that I can find is that none of the video streaming from Windows 10 apps can be played. I get an error 'Unsupported video type or invalid file path' when I click on a video article in USA Today or when I try to stream video from any other apps, NBC News, MSN Money, etc... from Windows 10 store.

I have no issue streaming videos from any of the browser though. What could be missing that could cause video streaming to fail? I would appreciate any suggestions or comments. Thanks.

Hi,
I was able to resolve the issue by disabling all hardware enhancements for Conexant Smartaudio HD. Here are the steps I took to resolve it, in case someone else runs into the same frustrating problem as I did: Right click on the speaker icon on the lower right hand corner -> Playback Devices -> Disable all hardware enhancements -> OK -> Reboot. That's it!

I first noticed it on youtube. The sound is off by almost a full second.
Then I realized it is not only youtube... news sites as well. In fact every video on the internet is not synced.
I use Firefox, so I tried IE, and it is the same.
My computer is a gaming computer, and should have no problem with a video. I can play many high end games, so I believe it is not a hardware fault.
On perhaps similar note, iTunes music will occasionally get a delay, kind of like a CD skip, but not quite. The music will slow down then quickly speed up to catch up, all within about a quarter of a second.
Any idea how to proceed?

Answer:Online Video's sound is not synced

Install current version of Flash Player from Adobe website...uninstall/reinstall audio drivers...that would be my approach.

This has been happening on and off ever since I started with Win 10 and its always very annoying .

System just hangs, no error message, no bsod, just complete freeze and loud hum.

I cant say I can remember having issues watching youtube videos, its the streaming of live content such as filmon. Sometimes I can watch filmon for days and not have the issue and then randomly it will start again. Today I was watching hypermole playing on twitch tv (live) and it just happened. Getting tired of it.
I can also report having all my video content display as a green screen after using hyper v although that may be totally unrelated.

As far as I am aware, I'm using the latest drivers for my graphics, I always try update everything. I have attached the log files as requested.

Answer:Sony video-cam, video 2 pc, no video or audio output

There should be a Firewire (otherwise called IEEE 1394 or DV Link) port on the camera, it looks like a mini USB port. Using a Firewire cable, connect this port to the Firewire port on your laptop or PC. If your PC has no Firewire port, you can add one by buying a PCI Firewire card.

So this problem is sort of difficult to explain, my audio tears. That is, while it is streaming it will sort of robot (get metallic) and stutter. This problem also shows up in my video while playing online games, the screen will freeze momentarily.

I have ran a complete norton scan, CC cleaner etc. I have also defragged and error checked my drive with no results other than the normal tracking cookies, and a few fragments. Additionally I also ran the windows 7 driver update tool, and individually checked them through the device manager; nothing.

Thinking the problem might have been my ethernet cable I replaced this. The issue still occured, so I swapped cables with my wife, and still no fix. I also tried both cables on different ports on my router (ie. I connected to a different port with each cable) and still no fix.

No one else in the house has the problem. Further, I should be getting 50Mb service, while downloading (or running speedtest.net) I get 1-2. I'm leaning toward the problem being with my ethernet card? I ran a continuous ping test on the cmd window while playing, and it seems that I am getting "random" latency spikes that coincide with the roboting/stuttering. Latency will pop up to 500-800 and than drop to normal 3-10.

Just thought that I would check here and see what people thought before grabbing a new ethernet card.

Have you performed a speedtest from another computer for comparision? You can also run the same ping test from another computer while testing?

Verify the NIC settings: Start / Control Panel / Network and Sharing Center / there is a link for the "Local Area Connection". You can view the speed. There is a "Diagnose" button for Windows to check the connection and in the properties you should be able to view the speed and duplex settings which should be 100/Full or 1000/Full depending on your hardware.

i am having trouble capturing video from my Sony DCR-TRV140 camcorder. i have been able to capture video but the audio doesn't sync up correctly with the video when i play it back on my computer.

i am using a 1394 cable (i used to use a usb but the quality of the video is SOOOO much better with the 1394), and have tried capturing with several programs, like movie movie maker and power director 6, same results for both of those programs. i have also tried capturing with adobe premiere pro 2 but it won't even recognize my camcorder. i was wondering if 1394 has drivers like usb, and if i could try updating them?

i never had a problem in the past until recently. also, i used to use a program that when i captured video, i could set in and out points so that i can manually create clips as i am capturing the video, but i cannot remember which program it was... any ideas?

i posted this on a video editing forum, but have not had any help there.

so basically 3 questions:

what is going on with the audio not syncing up with the video?
why isn't adobe premiere pro seeing my camcorder?
does 1394 have drivers, and if so, where can i update them?
what program lets me capture video while creating in and out points to manually create clips?

Alright, I have spend about 3 years trying to resolve this problem and I have done so much research that I felt it would be a waste for me not to post something about it. 
After I owned two Dell laptops, the XPS13 and Alienware 17. Both having the same problems. I tried everything, I read through all of the forums and I tried everytthing these forums have suggested and at multiple occasions I ruined my laptop and had to format it. 
I also always had the full warrenty with Dell customer service and have replaced my xps13 TWICE and my Alienware once. This is of course after replacing the motherboard and the hard drive and spending endless hours over the phone with them while they update all my drivers and ensure my software is running correctly. They ran 100's of tests on my computer to see why this is happening and no one could ever solve this problem. 
However, after all this research with no solution in sight I thought of the problem logically. My alienware was running 16 gb of ram and 1 TB of HDD regular hard drive. I figured if I have so much ram to run anything I want, maybe it is having the regular hard drive that is not keeping up with the ram. Sure enough, when I went and bought the best SSD out there Samsung Pro 950 256 GB and installed it and used it as my operating system while the HDD ran as my storage. For the first time in 3 years and 4 computers... my pc was running with no jitterz or lagging or any issues!

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Your issue might be similar to this thread.
 
Getting artifacts while playing games is mostly a sign that the GPU is failing. To verify this, try to:
1. Download and install Passmark's BurnInTest standard edition.
2. After installing, It will then create a shotcut on the desktop. Right click on the Passmark BurnIntest shortcut, configure it to use with the Nvidia Graphics Processor and run a burn-in test on GPU (2D and 3D tests)
 
If the GPU is fine, the burn in test shouldn't show any artifacts.
- Link to picture
 
If the GPU is failing, you will notice artifacts on the 2D/3D test.

If you get the artifacts while doing the GPU test, I recommend you contact Lenovo and report the issue.

Hi, my relatively new "HP ENVY TouchSmart m7 Notebook PC" has been having crippling lag while playing video games. The lag slows the computer down to about 0.2-0.5 frames per second, and slows the audio down to match the video speed (which produces a grinding sound). This lag happens every 10-45 seconds depending on how long the computer has been running. Some help would be appreciated.

I have tried loading VLC, K-Lite codecs, tried playing in WMP/WMC/WINAMP/VLC all with no luck. They play the audio fine, and I can open some WMVs ok, but others won't open.

I have tested the files on another PC using VLC and they play fine.
Anyone know of any special way to check what codec could be the culprit?
 

Answer:Can't play some WMV video files? Audio plays. No video.

Try Media Player Classic-Homecinema. It has it's own codecs, so you don't need to install anymore, just like VLC. I've found that MPC-HC plays just about any kind of media file out there.
