Question: Problem with video streaming/playing

Please Help;

i have an Nvidia GeForce Fx 5200 video card operation on windows xp Pro, and when i try to play/ stream videos, the video quality is bad, and everything seems red-ish, but is still visible. Everywhere else the images are normal, while playing video games for example, and are not red-ish.

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.)

Having recently got Broadband, I discovered the delights of playing high quality streaming video (movie trailers, music videos, etc.) over the net. This worked well for a while, but over the last few days it hasn't been working properly. They either get stuck at some point in the "buffering" process and don't play at all, or they eventually start to play but with no sound or picture or the occaisional second or two of sound and no picture. Lower-quality videos still play okay. I had to reinstall media player the other day and presumably something has got screwed up in my media player or browser settings to cause this, but I can't find what. Any ideas?

Answer:Streaming video playing problem with Broadband

my media player has been playing up this past few days also and dont know why as its all set up correctly to.mostly with the video trailers,it either sticks while buffering or i get the picture an no sound.

Answer:Streaming Video Not Playing

You have Windows XP or Windows 2003. (I would think)Is it only one video that does not work, or do other videos work and just not the one you want?If other videos work:The video you are trying to open may not exist, or the directory may be incorrect. If no video works:Try re-installing Windows Media PlayerInstall updates

There is this website I go to that has streaming video of certain video clips. Whenever I click the icon, internet explorer says that there is an internet connection problem. On my friends computer it works fine and WMP loads in the browser when he clicks on the video. When I say loads in the browser I mean windows player loads separately and then starts buffering the file.

What could be wrong?

I am using windows vista home. I know there is no way to uninstall WMP 11 since the program was integrated into the vista software. Using the system recovery option is not an option for me.

Answer:BSOD playing streaming video

Hi mapache.

There is only one crash dump in the uploaded zip, and that is of 01/11/2013. So it may not contain adequate info that we need to debug the present issue.

But, as you said about "atikmpag.sys", it is the display driver, and your employed drive is extremely old.

Code:
---------------
Display Devices
---------------
Card name: AMD Radeon HD 6570
Manufacturer: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
Chip type: ATI display adapter (0x6759)
Driver File Version: 8.17.0010.1103 (English)
Driver Version: 8.911.0.0
DDI Version: 11
Driver Date/Size: 10/25/2011 19:04:28, 892416 bytes
Update your ATI/AMD display driver to the latest WHQL.
You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.


During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

i just recently upgraded to WMP 10 and whenever I try to play streaming video, WMP crashes and sometime the IE that contains inline videos also crashes.

I have Windows XP, updated with SP2 yesterday. I had no problems with streaming video until I downloaded WMP10. Also, I don't have problems playing video from my HD, it's only with streaming video.

Does anyone have any answers to this problem?! It's driving me crazy~!!

Using Chrome with Win7, and when viewing video's via YouTube or BBC News both which use Adobe Flash Player.

The video either will not start, freeze after starting or the video can be seen running but with a black screen.

Adobe is fully up to-date and peppered version used, accelerator turned off, quality setting where possible set as low as possible.

If the video has HTML5, that plays ok.

If the same video's are pasted into IE, they play fine.

This problem has around for a month or so.

Any clues of how to rectify.

I recently upgraded to Windows 10, and everything has been really smooth, except recently I've started getting increasingly frequent BSOD crashes. It usually gives me the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error, but sometimes I get other ones. It was fairly infrequent, but last night it must have happened 5 times. I'm very frustrated. I've attached a mini dump. It happens most frequently when I'm playing WOW and streaming Netflix or Amazon Prime, but it's happened when I've been doing neither. I usually am able to figure computer problems out on my own, but this is baffling me. Please help!

Display driver locks up with strange (static) audio feedback and takes the system with it

This problem has seemed to crop up 4 days ago so I took some steps based on other forum posts:

Removed Norton antivius (first step)
Removed Chrome (first step)
Removed Skype (first step)
Removed Display Drivers replaced with driver off windows update (second step)
Replaced above driver with 306.23 WHQL (Third step)

Any help someone can render me would be much appreciated

Answer:DCP_Watchdog_Violation when streaming video and playing AAA Titles

It appears to be an issue with the NVidia drivers and specific video chipsets, but as to what it's hard to say (their Win8 drivers have been pretty unstable since the beginning). There's a new driver up on Windows Update that I installed today on my own machines, and the stability has returned, so you might want to consider going to NVidia's site directly, or attempting to install driver updates from WU.

I'm running XP SP3 Home Edition. Whenever I watch streaming video, on YouTube, newscasts, TV shows, etc. the computer reboots without warning, sometimes right when I start the video, sometimes a number of minutes in.

I've checked the temp in the BIOS and the CPU doesn't seem to be overheating. I've also disabled "automatic restart on system failure", but that has not prevented the reboots. I can't find anything in the Event Log that relates to this.

I've wondered if my video card maybe cannot handle newer video? It's not on-board, but a PCI card: RADEON 7000 from ATI Technologies, Inc. This card has VGA and DVI, but my monitor only has VGA, so that's what I'm using. I updated the driver to the latest available from ATI (this helped for a bit, but then the reboots happened again). The driver date is 5/3/2006, which is probably the last driver they will ever put out for that particular card.

Any help would be appreciated. I just want to be able to view video!
 

Answer:computer reboots while playing streaming video

There is a newer one:

Nov 2006. Try that and also uninstall flash player and download the latest one.

Hi, everyone. Just when I thought my BSOD issues from last year were solved, they've seemed to pop up again. This time, I'm mainly experiencing issues with "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and ntoskrnl.exe. I'm hoping that it's a software error like a driver rather than a hardware one. These BSODs mainly occur after a lengthy amount of time streaming videos and playing computer games.

I'll be sure to stress test my CPU, RAM, and GPU soon. For now, attached are my SF Diagnostic files. Thank you in advance.

Answer:BSOD After Video Streaming and Playing Games

Normally with these dumps I would say a system driver is using wrong pointers but because it's so consistent I think otherwise.


Code:
BugCheck A, {3, 2, 0, fffff800032d7785}
Given that the address being referenced was 3 it's pretty clear that it's invalid memory, I believe the first accessible address which is used for user mode at boot is 0x10000 although I might be slightly off with that one.

Again another IP misalignment...


Code:
BugCheck D1, {1, 2, 0, fffff88001887e85}
Again an invalid memory address was referenced.


Code:
BugCheck 9C, {0, fffff88002f6db70, 0, 0}

Code:
2: kd> !mca fffff88002f6db70
Machine Check feature not present
CP F/M/S Manufacturer MHz PRCB Signature MSR 8B Signature Features
2 6,58,9 GenuineIntel 3400 0000001200000000 21193ffe
On X64 systems to use the !mca command I believe I need to acquire private HAL symbols which I'm struggling to find at this moment in time if they're available to the public.

A machine check exception from my experience is quite rare as it's not common for one to be called if its bad RAM.
Nevertheless I think its best we test RAM first.

Though I have got a couple blue screens, freezing seems to be a lot more common. One of the blue screens said something along the lines of PFN_LIST_CORRUPT.

I have 4 sticks of the same ram, can only use 2 at a time with this motherboard, tried swapping 2 for the other 2- still freeze. I've ran memtest86 no prob

Processor never exceeds 41c, usually is 25-35c. (This info is from booting up after a freeze)

one question; should I unplug the video card before installing drivers? i normally don't, but i've ran out of ideas.

Answer:Freeze while playing WoW/COD4/Streaming video

0x4E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT is probably the single strongest error code that indicates corrupted memory. How long did you run memtest? The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes and the more the better.

Also, find the voltage specs of your RAM and compare it to the voltage setting in your BIOS. Do they match? How about the memory timings?

Description:
The computer freezes completely and any audio being played stutters. This lasts only for about a second or two and then the computer resumes normal function. This only happens 1 time every few minutes and more frequently while gaming, so Im assuming its a graphics card issue.

I have noticed this problem happening while streaming videos on Netflix, and while playing games. Originally I thought it was a hard drive problem because I have heard the Marvell SATA controller has had issues. But that isnt the problem.

All of my drivers are up to date and there hasnt been a BSOD or any error message. I also updated the BIOS to the latest version.

In the last couple weeks, I have experienced the 0x00000124 bsod when streaming games and playing video games (fifa 14/skyrim/planetside 2). The Video card (twin frozr radeon hd 7850) is the newest component, and around a month or so ago I did reformat and install windows 7 ultimate in order to get it onto my larger drive I switched in from an external disk. The issue seems to occur after a bit of time, and sometimes I can get 3-5 soccer streams at a time without an issue until a bsod occurs, or after up to an hour on fifa 14.

attached is the log from the diagnostic tool. any help would be much appreciated. I'd love to not crash with a minute left in the MLS cup again.

Answer:BSOD playing Fifa 14, streaming video (bccode 124)

Hi siskoeva.

A stop 0x124 is usually a hardware error.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.

Hi everyone,

A few days ago my computer started freezing whenever I watched video with any media player or online. The video will play from anywhere between 30 seconds and a few minutes. I'm getting no error codes, no BSOD, no screen tear or blocks, the video and audio just freeze and I get no keyboard or mouse response so I have to restart the computer. I get no problems just being online or using word processors, seems only problem is when I play video or play games.

I've had issues with my graphics card before so I'm guessing that's the problem again, but I'm not sure so that's why I'm here.

My computer specs are:

Videos Pause Anywhere! Internet and on Computer, Streaming and Playing in Video Players..Anywhere!! HELP!!!!


No matter where I play videos they pause or freeze or go very slow..I can hear the audio but the video freezes like when it needs buffereing.

Usually in Youtube if it does that I will pause it and wait for it to load and then play it and everything goes smoothly.One day I realized that pausing and waiting wasn't working anymore. It continues to freeze and be pausey. I decided it's my video streaming and internet.

Then I tried to play a video file in Sony Vegas' Trimmer (Which usually plays everything fine) and it was still doing it. I tried Media Player Classic and the same thing. When I play videos in Windows Media Player it's just black with sound. I'm so lost..I searched everywhere and everyone's problems almot seems like mine but it was always something different so I can't use their solution.

Everytime I restart the computer the problem goes away..Then it comes back later...This is turning into an everyday thing..I'm very frustrated.

Does anyone know what this specific problem may be?

Or did anyone experience this before?

How can internet videos and video files both be a problem?
Sounds like a Display problem but I'm not sure about that at all.

Can you help?

It's like a horror movie for me. I edit videos all day. I need video playback.

1) My computer will not load and play WMV files...itll play .rm, quicktime, youtube vids, but not wmv files. So if i go to www.break.com and one of the videos is a wmv it wont play...WHY!!!??

2) i have a Canon zr30mc digital video camcorder, and im trying to get the videon onto my computer. it is hooked up through the DV in/out, and opens with Nero Vision. everything it begins to record the video to the hard drive or to a CD, nero messed up and crashes...what can i do?

thanks everyone

Answer:2 Problems...playing Wmv Streaming Videos, Capturing Video From A Dv Camcorder To The Comp

I can't address the second one -- you might want to query Nero support -- and give an exact description of the "crash" -- if there is an error message you need to report it fully.On the first, right click on a downloaded .wmv file and select "properties".What media player is it currently associated to open with? Typically this would be Windows Media Player by default.But you can try others -- such as Real Player if you have it -- or download Videolan which plays just about anything:http://www.videolan.org/You can change the default player association through the file properties "change" dialog -- which I think works best if you have VistaBy the way I had a similar problem in Windows Vista trying to play .avi files online in Internet Explorer. Changing the association -- through the individual file properties -- back and forth resolved it.

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.

Environment:

Windows XP.

Problem:
when I click a online streaming radio link, for example, mms://media.lewisnews.com/TVNEWSLies . Real Player pops out and tries to play it, but Windows Media Player throws an error:

Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the specified protocol is not supported. In the Open URL dialog, try opening the file using a different transport protocol (for example, "http:" or "rtsp:").

The error code is C00D11BB, according to MS Windows solution, Tools > Options > Network, and tick all Streaming Protocols (UDP, TCP, HTTP) can solve the problem. But, it din't work at all~

I have tried reinstall Real Player and also reinstall Windows Media Player (but, Windows Media Player doesn't allow me to uninstall it), it throws the same error again.

Can someone give some advices?

Hello everyone,

I've got a problem with trying to watch streaming videos, they run for a couple of seconds and then stop as they try to buffer.

The thing is, everything was running fine up until a couple of days ago and then this buffering problem happened. I recently did a fresh install of everything, running XP with service pack 3 and the newest version of Firefox. I'm pretty sure my flash player is also up to date. Is anybody else having this problem? Thanks in advance for your help.

I am having problems with streaming videos from some, er, adult sites and also, intermittently, from the eminently respectable BBC iPlayer. The problem is continual buffering so the video plays in short bursts, which destroys the impact. Sometimes the buffer counts down which is equally odd. It does not seem to affect YouTube though. Is this a problem for my ISP, which is AOL? Suggestions welcome.

However, I thought I might need an update, so I downloaded the newest version (9) and it still didn't help. As you know, this version cannot be uninstalled, so now I'm stuck with it.

I have had a problem for some time now with WMP9 and streaming video. the problem is with all formats EXCEPT .asf and .wmv. those two work fine, all others crash WMP9 with an "unknown error". After this had happened a few times I decided to send an error report on it to see if it might find a fix. It came up witth an article that said I needed to update my copy of MPEG Encoder. I do not have that application(yes it was refering to an application, had a link for me to dl it)
I did at one time attempt to install Adobe Premiere but it did not install correctly and I uninstalled it. it included a version of MPEG Encoder in it, so gave that app a shot, it did not fix the problem.

I can play all media formats if they are on my machine. I can also stream these files using Quicktime or RealOne(but I don't like those apps)
The problem also seems to occur in K++(Kazaa) If I try to preview any video types other than wmv or asf, I get the same error as when streaming.

As I said, this has been going on for a while now, I've looked around, asked around and searched old threads here. I can come up with nothing and no one seems to want to help me other than suggesting a format. I do not subscribe to the theory that a format is a fix for anything, so that is not an option. I need to fix this, it has gone from being a slight annoyance, to being a huge headache.
 

Answer:Streaming video problem

Adobe Premiere is known not to uninstall the codecs it has installed and I personally have had problems with this. IIRC all i had to do was to delete the offending files from windows system folder.. I'm sure you can find the exact instructions how to do this if you search the web (that's how i got them).

I'm running Win XP Home with SP2, fully up-to-date, with WMP 10. I had no prior problems with streaming videos. However, I recently installed Nero, after which I find that streaming to WMP 10 no longer works. Instead, the files have to be downloaded first. I've checked the file associations in WMP 10 and Win XP, and ensured that .wmv and .wma files are to be opened with WMP, but that doesn't help.

Shall I try re-installing WMP 10? Or is there some setting in WMP that was overwritten by Nero?

Thx for any advice.

I just set up a brand new computer that is having problems across all browsers streaming video from sites like YouTube or Facebook. The video appears to be in slow motion/stuttering.

The PC is a Dell Precision 3620, intel (quad core 3.2 GHz, 3.6 Ghz Turbo, 6MB, w/ HD Graphics 530); 16 GB RAM; integrated graphics card. Windows 7 Professional.

Here is what I've already tried:

*I disabled Hardware Graphic Accelerator on all browsers.
*I made sure Adobe flash is up to date.
*I cleared internet history.
*I made sure windows is totally up to date.
*A different computer at the same location (network drop) did not have trouble streaming videos. Other computers on the same network are not having trouble streaming video.
*I checked memory usage and performance when the videos are stuttering and nothing appears to be taking up an exorbitant amount of resources.
* I checked to see if there was an update for the graphics driver (there wasn't)

I rebooted the computer and for a little while, videos streamed ok, but after a few hours, the user reported that videos were once again stuttering/ appear to be playing in slow motion.

I've been having the same problem for a while now. When I try to watch a video online, I can only load a small portion of it at a time. The progress bar will only move part of the way (usually only a minute or two out of a 30 minute video) and then completely stop. I've tried waiting for several hours to see if it's just slow, but it just stops.

It's not a matter of a slow connection--mine is very fast.
This happens both in IE and Firefox. I have cleared my cache and reinstalled Flash Player, but that didn't help either.

Any ideas???

I am having issues with streaming video from my PC to my TV by means of an HDMI cord. It used to be very simple: I would plug in the HDMI cord to both the PC and TV, change the settings on the T.V. to "HDMI", and on the PC press the "windows key + P" to change the settings to "duplicate" or "extend". I tried clearing everything up with my Norton services, but I can't find any issues.
Now the streaming won't work and I am not sure why. If I create another account on the computer it sometimes works but after enough times of streaming video, that stops working as well. The last time I tried the visual part worked, however I couldn't transfer the sound to the T.V. even when I tried adjusting all the settings. Anyone have any ideas?

Your system is outdated. You only have 512MB RAM & you're using weak integrated graphics. Since it can't accept any more RAM, you should install a *real* video card (standard PCI), or at least go into the BIOS & try increasing the video memory amount to 11MB.http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsuppor...And I'm curious why you list your CPU as 996MHz in two areas but 733MHz in another?

Hello,

I recently did an upgrade on my laptop, just so I can have a clean version of Windows 7 ad start from scratch as the system was feeling a bit clunky. I m planning on doing a clean install and formatting soon (maybe tomorrow), but for now I currently have a problem.

So before the upgrade, I had no problem playing YouTube videos, or any other videos on streaming sites using both Mozilla and Chrome. I could watch videos on wither piece of software at 720p without any problems with lag and stuttering. After this upgrade, nothing seems to work. When I try to watch YouTube videos, even on 360p I will get major slowdown on the video itself and when using the laptop. Thos only occurs when the videos is playing, and when stopped it goes away. I have looked at task manager to see the CPU usage and when playing videos the usage of it is in the high 80s and lower 90s percentages.

The current actions I have taken are these:
I have disabled hardware acceleration in both Adobe Flash Player and Mozilla.
Removed enhancements on audio in case it was audiodg tampering with it (had this problem before)
I have disabled all of the add-ons I have present in the browser, including Adobe Flash Player
When I did this, the Mozilla's own container was still giving me high CPU usage

It works fine on any other computer in my house just not mine. I am using media player 10, I also tried installing 9 and had the exact same problem. I don't know if it is a Codec problem or what. I can't figure it out. It has nothing to do with my firewall since the other computers that work fine are on the same firewall. Even reformatting does nothing! Is there a substitute for Media Player that I can use? If I download the file first then play it, then it works fine, I just can't stream direct.

I consider myself to be quite good with networking, but I have stumbled across a problem which is starting to bother me. Basically what is happening is when I play any kind of video stream from any given site on the net, my internet connection drops and the only way to revive it is a power cycle of the router. I haven't had this problem until recently (past few months) and I have owned this current router (Linksys Wireless B router) for 3-4 years. I've gone over all of my router settings and everything is set properly. I thought to myself perhaps my router was blocking that video stream via a port block on my router. But this can't be since I even tried opening every well known port on my router (0-50k) for a few minutes to see if that would work but to no avail. Therefore I believe it could an actual router hardware issue. The conclusion I've come to is that I think the router's buffer is recieving the video stream packets in the router's buffer but cannot handle the flow and is discarding them, which in the process locks up my router and thus requiring a power cycle. I think it may be time to buy a new router! What do you guys think?
 

Answer:Odd video streaming problem...

Put a hub on the outside of the router and sniff the traffic. You might see something in there.

Video: Intel on-board
Ram: 1gb

I've got a PC having video problems streaming but only with these sites that stream live football games and sports events. It runs fine with youtube etc. No problems with movies or anything like that. All the basic stuff checked like updated video drivers, disk space, flash etc. Also tried disabling hardware accelerator. The sound works fine but the video runs in slow motion. My thinking is the on-board card or lack of memory but the fact it runs other site such as youtube I'm doubting this. BB speed is excellent so this is not the problem. Any ideas?

Answer:Video streaming problem.

Look to the web pages FAQ's and see what the minimum requirements are. You may need a video card with separate video memory to play this site. Also when streaming, stop the video from automatically starting, and let it buffer for a few minutes (there may be a grey progress bar ahead of the actual playing progress bar)
Be sure to update Java and Shockwave.

This particular problem has started since I installed Windows 7...I never had it in XP. When I installed Windows 7, I didn't have the problem, it seem to have started recently. It could have started when I replaced RC with the Release version.

When I try to play a Video...regardless of the source, it plays for a few seconds, then stops, then plays for a few seconds, then stops, and never just plays. The Video buffer never fills up...it just stays at the current location. \

I don't mind waiting till the buffer reaches 100% and then start playing the video...but no matter how long I wait, the buffer indicator doesn't move.

The videos start buffering then after 5 seconds or so freeze and start buffering again.Can anyone advise me on this problem?Thanks in advance.

Answer:Streaming/Video problem

Google for "Broadband Speedtest" and see if your data throughput is what you paid for. If it is OK in the test, it could be that the slow down is at the other end.Major sporting events may have peak viewing audiences too big for the service provider, though you would think that since Setanta's business is based on this, they would have adequate bandwidth.

Hi there :)


I'm running into an odd problem. It started a couple days ago for reasons unknown. If I try to play an embedded video, such as this, the video will begin to play in media player as normal, but a download progress window will also open. This didn't use to happen, but here's the really weird part- if I cancel the download progress window, everything is fine; if I let it go the video will either restart, or stop playing all together along with an error message stating that the file cannot be found.

I tried clearing my TIFs, relocating my TIF folder, checked and rechecked every setting I can see, and everything looks fine. It's kind of baffling =[

from what i know, nba & yahoo (like featured videos, news) either use Quicktime or Windows Media Player to load & play videos. my prob is it suddenly stopped playing videos for no reason. my media player is upto date, quicktime, realplayer & other codecs are upto date. just wondering why i can't view a video from those sites? does anybody know a solution? anything i need to do?

I have searched many forums, including Microsoft's, and have read various reports of problems streaming video after SP2 has been installed, but have found no solutions. HELP! This is driving me nuts. It doesn't seem to be a universal problem, but in the cases I found, we all have the same symptom: After installing SP2, streaming video with WMP10 no longer works (it just stalls out while trying to connect). If given the option to choose RealPlayer, streaming video will work. So, it appears it's a conflict between WMP10 and SP2. I tried rolling back to WMP9, as it worked for some, but it did not work for me.

This is a Windows 7 machine, Pentium 4, 2.667 GHz. I have 2 GB Ram. I got hooked on You-Tube and the old Star Trek series
http://www.youtube.com/show?p=Zk2dX5DnW_c&s=1

It worked great for a couple of episodes, then suddenly it would only play for a couple seconds, then a few seconds of loading, then play a few seconds, etc.

It's doing it in nearly every video application.

I have a 5 mb internet connection. When I had the 1 mb connection it worked fine.

I've tried running in full performance mode with none of the Win 7 graphics enhancements, that doesn't help. I'm not sure what else to change.

I am unable to view streaming media [ live & on demand ] from a particular site, on some of the PCs on my small LAN. The site requires Adobe Flash 10, which has been installed; more accurately upgraded from AFP 9.

Hello. I've got a Lenovo G585 that's about 4 months old. I've already had a few problems with it but they just seem to fix themselves.. But for about a month now, I go on youtube and try to stream a video, and my internet cuts off immediately! Literally. I can't go on any website after this, all I can do to fix this is turning my computer on and back on. I tried logging out but that doesn't change anything. It's very annoying because everytime this happens I have to drop everything I was doing to restart my computer. You could tell me "Just don't go on youtube" Buut I love youtube and I use it quite a lot. Please help! Thank you

Answer:G585 Video Streaming Problem

hi itszoegee,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
What you're encountering is really weird as your internet connection just cuts off when you go to youtube. Perhaps you have a security software that automatically locks down your internet connection when you access certain websites? It'll also be helpful to know if your IP address gets change, the security software that you use, or the internet goes from Internet Access to Limited Connectivity during the incident.
 
Also, try to boot in Safe Mode with Networking and see if the problem persists (this will isolate the issue of a third party software that might be causing the issue)
 
 
Let me know your findings,

Hey,

I'm trying to watch an online stream on http://www.theyoungturks.com/ (the one on the homepage). However, I always get a problem where it just doesn't load. WMP tries to open it but stops after about 10 seconds. Sometime the stream works perfectly though, which perhaps means its not WMPs fault, but theres something wrong with the computer. I've tried searching for a solution, but nothing is working. Any tips?

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

clientís 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 clientís browser without saving the swf files in the

Internet Cache or Temporary Internet Files folder.

Any help, advice or pointers on this matter would be highly appreciated.

I have watched many streaming vids from youtube or movie dvds. at the bottom of each screen is a sliding thing that enables me to advance or rewind to a certain point.

i just subscribed to a streaming video site and their sliding thing will slide all the way to the "end" or right and then i cannot move it at all to either advance or rewind. the movie continues to play but i have to sit through a lot of junk most of the time.

i have emailed my problem to the site and they just asked me for my RAM size and computer speed. i gave them that info but am a bit skeptical simply because their vids are the only ones that have this problem.

first, is there a name for that sliding thing? second, any clues on what i might do to bypass this problem?

I can't play streaming videos on my MSN homepage, just shows loading but no video or audio. I'm using IE and Windows Media Player but no success. I've disabled my firewall and checked it against my laptop which plays the streaming videos just fine and has the same OS and software versions as my desktop. WMP on my desktop can play back all the various media files that I have on my HD, just not streaming videos from MSN (also from www.stupidvideos.com which is where some of the media content comes from on MSN).

My setups on both computers:

Okay HardForum, I need your help troubleshooting the bottleneck in my network.

The Basic problem is this; I am getting choppy video streaming from server to my wireless
laptop in the next room. Media player Classic is pretty bad, VCL player clears it up a
little, but still pauses to buffer a couple of times for a 350 MB file that is less than an hour in length.

Can I fix this w/o using a wired connection?
What are the limitations of Wireless G networks?
What/where is the bottleneck in the network?


A more detailed description:

Here is my setup.
Router:
Linksys WRT300N v1.1 running DD-WRT v24-sp2 (10/10/09) mega.

Stream From:
Windows XP Desktop
Intel P4 3.4GHZ
2GB Ram
5400RPM Hard drive
10/100Mbps Realtek RTL8139 NIC
(no wireless card)

Stream To:
Windows XP laptop
Intel Core 2 Duo 1.4GHZ
2GB Ram
NVIDIA Geforce 8400M GS
Hard Drive 4500RPM
Dell Wireless 1390 WLan Mini-Card (wireless G)
I don't have a wireless N adapter for the laptop

Here is an example to illustrate what I am seeing on my end. I am streaming a 349 MB
video file from my server to my laptop with a run time of 48 minutes 12 second. With
Media Player Classic I see stuttering(frame jumps) and stoppage(video stops for .5-1.5s)
right away during the introduction. With VCL player I see 3-4 stoppages due to buffering
interspersed throughout the duration of the video. (More so in the evening see below)

Answer:Problem Streaming Video through a wireless G Network

1st up, I`d have said the 5400rpm drive in the WinXP box with the realtek 8139 NIC, then I saw the chart with the Channel saturation. Surely channel 3 would be better for you with only 2x users either side!?

1st off, skip that realtek card, I`d use a decent quality Intel for replacement, done this myself recently and saw quite a noticeable increse in throughput.

2nd, maybe try running a cable to rule out the wireless side of things (if it`s still somewhat choppy it`s the server side hardware, if it cures it it`s almost certainly the popularity of wireless G in your area).

That is quite some use of the limited bandwidth allocated for wireless G, if you want to be naughty, set your location (Router GUI) to one other than yours and see if you can sneak onto one of the channels not normally available to you to see if that helps, not recomended though.

Lastly it`s time to upgrade the antennae on your router or better still, upgrade your router to a dual band one with wireless G and N if your laptop supports N that is.

Sorry just re-read your post, you don`t have N capability on your laptop.

Looks like your only options are, in order of cost (cheapest 1st(maybe))

1) run a cable (kinda defeats the whole point of having a latop though)
2) use directional antennae on your router (again you`d be kinda limited to where you can use it)

I have just noticed that there is one signal stronger than yours in the graph, "Looksea" are you closer to that AP th... Read more

Hi guys,

I get emails from Real all the time telling me new trailers and stuff to watch, so I clicked them and they start loading in Real Player (no. 10 btw) and when it's finished loading the audio streams perfectly, but the video is VERY slow frame rate and choppy...it doesn't stream. It only picks up like every 50th frame or something and shows that.

I have a 150kbps ISDN broaband connection (and that's what was automatically detected by realplayer as my connection) I have also tried playing around with the bandwidth settings but none of it makes a difference.

Hope someone can help. I have a 2ghz speed, pentium 4 248MB ram and the broadband connection. it should stream fine...but it seems to have trouble with the video. I have all the updated drivers.

Hi! Somehow, last week while I was sleeping, I lost the ability to view Netflix instant movies, TV Shows from sites like ABC.com and TNTtv.com, news video from Yahoo and CNN and also cannot hear the broadcast from my local radio station's web site (it's too fuzzy on my stereo). I use IE 6.

I first contacted Netflix support - 3 times - because that's where I initially encountered the problem. When trying to view films I got a Digital Rights Management error. The support people ran through all of their options with me. I also spent the week searching the Internet for solutions. I uninstalled (rolled back) Windows Media Player then installed WMP 11, reset Digital Rights Management, attempted to update my sound driver and maybe more.

It seems my OS is not recognizing the DRM reset. We tried renaming the file to "hide" it, but that hasn't worked.

Because I am unable to view TV episodes on several sites, Yahoo and CNN news videos, and cannot listen to the radio site (though I can hear general sounds on the PC ) the Netflix support people admitted they'd run out of ideas and advised me to contact OS support.

I welcome any ideas or suggestions. Thanks!

Hi,

Iím in a dilly of a pickle here.

When playing video, my screen will go black for just a second and then return to normal. With most video players, the video will then usually play, but when using BSPlayer (bsplayer.org) to watch video, the screen will go black, return to normal and then video will not play.

It gets worse. Sometimes, I will be minding my own the computer will still be running, but then, the screen will go black, then the monitor will give me the old message:
"self test / check your pc and signal cable / monitor is working"
The computer will still be running, and the only way I know to get picture back is to restart the computer. I have gotten this error the most when the using BSplayer, which sometimes causes the monitor to just shut down like that. But other video players like divx, QuickTime, and windows media player will all occasionally not play or cause weird image problems to crop up on the screen

Also, if the computer freezes up, hitting ctrl+alt+del gives me a black screen with garbled white text.

I have updated my NVIDIA drivers and installed the latest bsplayer version, but neither of those actions fixed my dilemma.

Just after I purchased this inspiron 13-5378 (intel core i7) immediately after setting everything up and running smoothly, I tested it by watching a few videos on youtube. I noticed that videos just stop loading and the whole chrome browser just hangs for a couple 10seconds if i "jump" along the playbar too quickly/repeatedly. Then the video would just show a green screen and I have to reload the page to continue watching. Was a bit shocked since it was a new PC, and that other than that it is much faster than my previous laptops (which were admittedly quite old, 5 years or more old haha)
This still occurs occasionally for about a month now. It's really irritating so i decided to post here. Is there anything i can do to fix it? Is it a problem with this model's weak graphics card? Do i have to upgrade to a new one to resolve this?
