Video Freeze On Playback, Sound Skipping And Cracking
Nov 30, 2009
- graphic drivers (not in my case, U can always check if it helps in yours)
- high performance power profile (from this forum's tutorials: Power Plan - Select | Power Plan Settings - Change)
- installing different codecs/vid player
- PCI-E x1 bug <- a real pain in the ass, caused most of the problems; I’ll explain how to solve it in a minute
- Comodo Firewall/Internet Security for x64 systems (for some users disabling the Image Execution and unticking Detect Shellcode injections worked) - still a not resolved bug LINK 1 LINK2
- interrupt conflict with other hardware (try to disable in BIOS setup your WiFi adapter / COM port – this helped a couple of people)
Skipping and shuttering sound on all my sources (Audigy (with kx v.3550 drivers) and AD SoundMax integrated with MB) was also caused by the PCI-E bug, which was a real surprise for me, especially in the case of Audigy which is an old PCI card.
I have had problems with continued freezing and crashing during Avi., xvid, divx, and now problems with playback of recorded media. It occurs in Media Center, VLC, WMP, DIVX. I had this same problem with vista home 32 bit and couldn't elicit support since Windows 7 32 bit was coming out soon.
Solutions I have tried:
Reinstalling OS fresh
Latest Drivers from Nvidia 22.214.171.1240 Last upgrade
Upgrade Video card from Nvidia 8800 Onboard Video to 9400 GT card
I have turning off indexing on HD
Turning off certain services and since have reinstalled
Installed very little other than media, (Pics, music)
Please help, I shelled out over a hundred for Vista and I don't want to make the same mistake if Windows 7 is going to have the same problems.
I bought Windows 7 mainly for Media Centre, as my desktop PC has been my TV, DVD player, MP3 player etc for the last few years. I was running XP and upgraded last weekend to Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit.
I noticed first that the TV playback in WMC was skipping frames and very jerky, but then I realised that this was only in full screen. When I play it in a smaller window it is fine, then when I go fullscreen it is fine for around 20 secs, then a flicker happens and the problem starts again. If I change the channel, again it will be fine for some seconds, then same thing again.
I have noticed now tonight that when I playback movie files in Media centre there is the jerky frame skipping, but in Media player it is fine?????!!!! Also alot of times that I play either TV or Video files in WMC the screen is just full of lines and I have to close it down and reopen, sometimes several times in a row.
On top of this I've now realised that when I was watching online TV (Flashforward on Channel 5) the frame skipping is there too (Explorer 8).
Could this be to do with the onboard graphics? I thought 64MB was fine for windows 7.
Please help before I have some sort of fit from watching this jerky TV!!
Intel Core i7 3.4 2nd. Gen. Motherboard: Asus P8P67 PRO RAM: 4GB Video: nvidia 9500 GT Audio Card: Omega STriker 7.1 Windows 7 32bits ultimate.However when i install a windows update the sound cracks for a few seconds, why this happens? i mean the processor is fast enough, why the bus still collapses?
The sound on my Acer Aspire notebook is skipping and lagging. I've already downloaded the newest Realtek audio drivers from the Acer website. I tried to reset the DMA settings but got this result: "No resettable ATA channels with Windows drivers found. Nothing changed."
I recently desc covered that besides VLC on my laptop all the other video player are not able to work properly (meaning,, Windows Media Player 12, Cyberlink PowerDVD12 and WMPC are able to play only the audio, but not the video, just black screen),, BUT with VLC is no problem playing any video format!! The thing is that I didn't have this problem previously,, all my video players were able to play all the same video files, which they can't now! I have the latest AMD Radeon HD video drivers installed
Some of my .mpg videos periodically stutter during playback on 64-bit Windows 7 if played through WMP 12.0.7600.16415. If played back through VLC 1.0.3 the problem doesn't happen. Problem happens whether in full-screen or windowed mode. The stutter points are consistent and reproducible -- happens at the same place in the video each time. Doesn't happen with all mpg videos, only some.There's nothing else running on the machine. Perfmon shows almost no CPU activity on all cores, and no significant disk or network I/O.Video: EVGA GTX-275, latest nVidia 126.96.36.19962 drivers. CPU: i7-860 @ 3.78Ghz. Disk: WD Velociraptor 300GB SATA. The same mpg videos play fine on a lesser-powered XP machine (2.4Ghz Core 2 Quad Q6600) through WMP 11.0.5721.5268.
I just finished building my first computer and everything seems to work fine. However, when I perform a WEI test I receive the error "Could not measure video playback". I made sure drivers were up to date etc. but still couldn't complete the test. The log file had a line saying "Unable to create D3D device" but games and movies on my hard drive worked fine so I decided it wasn't a big deal.Now, however I have just realized that I am unable to watch streaming flash videos online and think the two may be related. Video loads but upon playing video screen turns green and only audio plays.
So my computer started freezing randomly during video playback and just gets stuck with the sound also looping at a millisecond interval... Anyway I can repeat this error if I play any video full screen for a long enough time period. I did some research on this problem and found that it could be the RAM OR PSU... I used memTEST see if it could possibly be my RAM, But unfortunately do not know how to interpret the errors it gives out correctly, the results are attached. Someone please tell me what I should do if my results read as errors or not.
I recently bought a new computer and I have been experiencing some video issues while playing videos and playing games, on videos the file plays normally until it becomes jittery with green and pink lines sometimes resulting to a crash or BSOD, after the crash theres a note on the right side of the screen that says "Display driver has stopped working and recovered etc etc, I'm not sure... This also happens on You Tube and other video sites. On games it's pretty much the same but it goes BSOD and restarts.well it does not go BSOD all the time but it does happen almost every time I play videos and play video games.
Withing the past few days my PC seems like it has gotten considerably slower, freezing a bit once and a while for a few seconds, downloaded video on all players is choppy and about every 15-30 secs freezes which it never did. Cpu and ram usage are both very low I am running and Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.4, 8 gb ram, gtx 460 xlr8. I checked the disk and its running DMA mode so its not that, Deleted and uninstalled all unused games, file etc. Ran malwarebytes full scan which turned up nothing, no large usage in processes
It's been some time that I've been experiencing micro-lags during the playback of 720/1080p mkv movies (not all of them). It can be best noticed in the parts of the movie when there's a lot of movement. If I stop the movie and play this part again, the lag is still there. It's not the file's fault because there are movies that I used to watch without any problems some time ago (the same file).

My Toshiba Satellite L750 laptop has been having trouble playing Flash video, and Windows takes an extremely long time to boot. Flash videos appear to drop every other frame at best, and the sound in every Flash element is extremely loud and distorted. When Windows boots, it appears to finish booting in a reasonable amount of time, but the antivirus software and some minor background processes do not load along with Windows. They do not load until two minutes after Windows appeared to finish booting. During this two-minute period, there is no CPU or hard drive activity. These two problems have occurred since Toshiba reinstalled Windows during their many attempts to repair this computer. This is the same computer that I started this topic about. What did they do to this computer?
I can watch a video online, as in through a browser and it looks great. But when I play back a video locally from my hard drive it is all blurry and not sharp.I have VLC media player installed. Maybe this has messed with codecs or something?It plays crappy in both VLC and media player in windows 7.How can I get my videos look right again?
I have dual boot xp and windows 7 and when i play movies on xp the screen is fine black is black and i have my monitor calibrated. But the same movie in windows 7 is more grey ...like brigthness is not correct and that only happend when i play movie (on any player it is the same gray effect)... I took screenshot and when i look in windows photo viewer the screenshot is normal ..black is black etc... anybody know what is the problem? I did calibrate my monitor correctly and windows colors are ok ... just appearing that gray problem when playing video.

The thing is that I didn't have this problem previously,, all my video players were able to play all the same video files, which they can't now! I have the latest AMD Radeon HD video drivers installed (just after I discovered the problem).
I have previously made this trade in a "Graphic Cards" section,, I guess it was wrong so I am re-posting it here "Music, Pictures & Video"
I've got Nvidia 8400GS graphic card and its latest driver, version 306.1. after installing windows 7 on my system, the driver keeps on crashing again and again after some time, when a video is played. after a few seconds a message on the task bar occurs saying that the system has recovered.
the video playback in browser, every browser, using flash plugin [e.g. Internet, dailymotion, etc.] plays smoothly but freezes for a second or two every once in a while. this happens during full screen playback as well as windowed one.i also have a problem getting smooth playback using windowed mode of subedit player [i translate stuff so need this player feature, can't replace it for media player classic], even though full screen playback is just fine. same clips playback perfectly in mpc, vlc and other players. i guess the problem is somehow connected with the player, although my colleagues didn't experience this problem, neither did they experience choppy flash playback.i'm using 190.38_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_english_whql as drivers.
I would like to run a program that uses video. It's an old program that won't run in Windows 7, but ran well in XP. I just upgraded to Windows 7, but still really need this software, so I was hoping it would run in XP Mode. The installation went well. However, it works only up until the point when I load the video. Once I run it and then stop it, the program freezes completely.
This is the computer I have. The only thing different is that Windows Home version was upgraded to Business: Gamer Supreme 957i Desktop PC Intel Core i7 2600K(3.40GHz) 16GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 2GB Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

The thing is that I didn't have this problem previously,, all my video players were able to play all the same video files, which they can't now! I have the latest AMD Radeon HD video drivers installed. As I mentioned I didn't have this problem before,, with a previous versions of the AMD graphics card driver. This happened to my laptop a while ago already,, since I have this problem I updated my video drivers 5 or 6 times at least, and no change so far!Why am I assuming that the cause of my problem is the graphics card driver is, for ex. when I had just re- installed my windows (fresh! from Windows 7 to Windows 8),, the video playback was working, while the graphic card was running on the drivers provided by Microsoft! as soon as I am installing the driver for my model of AMD Radeon graphic card I am staring to have the problem.As I mentioned I have the problem for some time already, during this time I re-installed my Windows couple of time, plus I even changed the version of the windows (7to8), for the moment I have the last version of video driver installed, I haven't installed ANY codecs?
My family and I have accumulated a rather large library of DVD/BD movies that we like to watch repeatedly from time to time. In order to avoid searching for and handling the original disks each time, I have been ripping the content, preserving menus,chapters, and the audio and subtitle streams for our preferred language, along with the main video title.i chose to transcode the video using h.264 format, and AC3 audio, storing those and the subtitle stream in an MKV wrapper, because that format is reasonably well supported by the WDTV Live Plus player I have been using. However, I have found many shortcomings of that player to be frustrating to me. My frustration is caused mostly by these factors:
- Browsing screen by screen, with only textual titles when deciding what movie to watch next is not pleasing.
- If I want to jump into a particular movie chapter, again there is only text (minutes/seconds) to help me find the chapter I want, as opposed to artwork such as one would have when viewing the original disk using a DVD/BD player.
- Inability to pause, and advance frame by frame, as I would be able to if playing the original media.
- The WDTV Live Plus sometimes alters the appearance of the subtitles compared with the original media, and sometimes to the extent that they are unreadable.
Thinking that I might be able to improve on shortcomings like these, I embarked on a project to build my first HTPC, which I have now done. I am happy with the system from a hardware perspective. I installed Windows 7 Professional x64, and am poised to begin using Media Center for the first time. It is my hope that I can use the MKV files I have spent many hours creating, but if some other format proves more appropriate, I will start over, but using my new system, it will not take nearly so many hours the next time.I would eventually like to retire my two Tivo boxes, so I expect I will install a tuner card such as the Ceton InfiniTV4 that accommodates a multi-stream cable card, but one Tivo function we use occasionally (and would like to retain) is the ability to download Amazon video on demand for later viewing. Is this possible with Media Center, and could I stop viewing from the family room in the middle of a movie, and continue watching on the bedroom extender?
All was well with my computer and one fine day video playback became very laggy and choppy. Also the computer in general slowed down considerably. My first thought was that there had been a virus attack and hence I ran a thorough scan. Nothing showed up. So formatted the whole system and installed Windows 8. Nothing changed. Videos continue to be laggy and overall system performance is slow. I read somewhere this could be because of high DCP latency caused by faulty drivers. I used the original Windows 7 backup DVD given to me by my laptop manufacturer to restore to factory default. No change - laggy video with slow system performance. I used the DCP latency checker to figure out what was causing the high values I was getting and pinned it down to the WiFi driver. The latency is down but choppy video playback and super slow OS continue to bother me. I've run out of options and my patience it's wearing thin.
I have a thinkpad x100e netbook and a Conexant CX20582 SmartAudio HD sound card.i just reinstalled windows 7 and it seems the microphone has not worked since i did that. I have adjusted, updated, disabled and enabled the drivers, but i still do not get any sound when playing back recordings or skype test calls i make. the system lets me make the recording, and skype seems to detect the microphone, but nothing plays back.the speakers work without problem.when i try to set up the microphone, the prompt does not identify it. i have tried to connect a microphone as well, but either way, i would like to mostly rely on the built-in mic anyway.also, the microphone does not show up on the volume mixer.
I have an Aspire 5738Z laptop running Windows 7 Home Premimum. I am trying to set up a HDMI cable connection to my Toshiba Smart TV. The picture is fine but there's no sound. When I go into Sound in the Control Panel, there is no HDMI option to choose in order to send the output to the TV speakers (only "Speakers" and "S/Digital Audio S/PDIF) . I've tried downloading various Graphics Media Accelerator Drivers from the ACER, INTEL and REALTEK sites but they all say that they are not validated for my computer.
