I installed win 8 about 2 weeks ago and i noticed something really annoying.when i play videos on 720p in chrome (desktop) they lag. Dont lag like all the time but they lag for like 1 2 secs and then they start running smooth again. I already check for drivers and i got the newest one. I tried in IE and i dont have this problem but EI sucks big time. I know that my video card is kinda old but with windows 7. I didn't had any problems with videos on youtube even on 1080p.So is there something i can do about those lags?
I am running a Toshiba computer with Windows 8 and Google Chrome as my default browser.
Basically, any videos from any website will load but not play, and any sounds (not necessarily just from Google Chrome) won't play either. For example, when I change the volume of my computer it does not play a tone (when it normally should). I have updated Java and Adobe Shockwave to no avail.
The problem started occurring a couple of days ago. Originally I could restart my computer and I would be fine for a while, but eventually that stopped working. I have had this computer for at least 6 months and have not had any problems with it. Also I ran a quick scan with Windows Defender and it didn't find anything out of the ordinary.
The present file format of these personal videos is: .3gp. When I try to play them in Xbox video I get this error message: Can't play because the item's file format isn't supported. Check the store to see if this item is available there. 40 apps open when I did check. Which app will play this .3gp format? I can visually play them in Windows Media Player but for some reason there's no sound & it's turned up to full volume.
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3230M CPU @ 2.30GHz 782/100mhz.) I
have Windows 8 64 bit. I have looked up this no sound problem on googgle and tried all recommendation to no avail. My audio card is not showing it has an issue. I have tried a headset and I am unable to hear any sound. I can play any videos on my computer but no sound. I can play YouTube on Chrome (no sound) but cant play YouTube in Firefox as it errors out This just happened this week - I don't know why. I don't remember downloading anything and I did not install any new software.
After upgrading to win 8, all of my videos were being played through x-box video app. I clicked one of my videos and changed the default to win media player and now this window appears when I try to open a video.
I've searched for a resolution for this everywhere but it seems like I am the only one with this issue, whenever i try to play video in a windows 8 app I get an error or the video just loads forever... however everything else about apps work just cannot play videos inside apps :
When I try in IE I get an error right on the video screen stating there is an error and to click for more info. When checking the info, I've done everything it recommends.
When I try in Firefox it will play a commercial ad but when it's finished just sits idle instead of continuing with the video.
My browsers ie10 and firefox both suddenly stopped play the youtube videos online. I get the message an error has occurred. Please try again later. I have tried uninstalling the flash plugin and reinstalling it but the issue remains. I even reset and uninstalled my firefox. but still the same problem occurs.I have windows 8 operating system on my laptop and it is 64 bit. I was able to play all you tube videos before.
I am using Windows 8 software and want to be able to play a series of videos in a folder consecutively, so they start automatically one after the other. However I have not seen this capability in the standard Windows 8 or Office software.
My laptop has been crashing regularly and very often for about a month. Happens most of the time when I open a new webpage on chrome, or a video plays in browser - and I get this error displayed: Attempted Execute of NoExecute Memory.
I suppose this is a driver problem - this became a menace ever since I tried updating my video and audio drivers from the HP Website (Using a HP Envy DV6 7245us Laptop). I've tried reinstalling the drivers but it didn't solve the problem.
The laptop is new - bought it in September. Worked fine. Ran virus scans - nothing detected (I use BitDefender).
OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit RAM: 6 GB 2.3GHz up to 3.2GHz AMD Quad-Core A10-4600M Accelerated Processor AMD Radeon HD 7660G Discrete-Class graphics and up to 3060MB total graphics memory
i know 1080 can't physically fit in a 720 resolution. The reason I ask is because my Vizio Blu-ray/Internet player automatically detects the display as 1920x1080 (the TV allows this, showing the resolution box in the corner and the picture being nice and crisp. It looks pixelated and letters are jagged in 720p).
My computer, however, only detects the TV in it's native resolution of 1360 x 768 (or was it 1366?). If my blu-ray player can pull it off, what is limiting my computer from doing the same? (The option to go to 1080 isn't available and a custom resolution in the Nvidia CP looks downright awful)
When I start up my computer, go into windows, it takes a while to load then I get bsod and it restarts then works perfect, so now if I run it cold, I reset it immediately after switching it on, then it works. WTF?!
Plus now, it has started getting really slow and it lags. Like if I play music off my hard-drive, my 2tb storage, then open up chrome or do anything it gives me this electrical sounding lag. What can I do?
How come the camera app lags if I go to like 1200x800 or more.. I got a beast machine. Also, how do you take a picture with the camera app? The button on my webcam does nothing and I'd rather use a software button.
I've done all my searching and they all come up with the solution of "update your drivers man." All my drivers are up to date.
So anyways, while playing movies (which are stored on a Maxtor 250gb HD), I am experiencing skips or chops every so often. Sometimes it will get so bad it won't even play the movie, it just pixellates and cuts out sound. But that's only happened one or two times while watching Oblivion in HD.
I have tried using different media players: the Video App skips, Windows Media Player skips, and VLC is just plain awful.

Why have MS made search so damn difficult? I am trying to find all videos in my computer and I simply cannot. It only finds the videos in the generic my videos folder. Damn I am so frustrated I want to throw my brand new laptop out the window. By the way I am using Classic shell and never use metro nor want to. Search in win 8
So recently (around a week ago), my computer started taking forever to load YouTube videos. The videos buffer "sometimes fully" and still don't play. This also happens with Webms on any website.
If it's related, I also updated my (IDT) audio drivers around the same time this started happening.
This only happens some of the time (with no relation to the length of the video).
I just discovered this only happens when I'm using Skype (or any other voice chat).
This is still happening even when not using Skype. It's getting really annoying. Also, if a video doesn't play and I load up a bunch of videos at the same time, they don't play either. But then a few seconds/minutes later, they all randomly start playing at the same time. It's really weird.
I have done a bunch of tests (by loading up a bunch of videos) and apparently this is caused by Shockwave Flash. ALL of my audio stops working randomly, and on Google Chrome, when I got a prompt to stop Shockwave Flash (because it was not responding), I clicked "stop," and as soon as I did so all my audio resumed working and the videos started. This is really odd.
Apparently it's not Flash because Spotify is doing basically the same thing with my browser closed.
Apparently I'm also going to make edits all day. I'll keep updating everything I find out. So right now what I forgot to mention is that whenever I click the volume changing little button, it's supposed to make a sound immediately right? For me, voice mixer stops responding for 10-20 seconds, then 10 seconds later it plays a sound. Should I reinstall/remove my audio drivers or what? I
I now remember that the old audio drivers I had were RealTek High Definition Audio drivers. I updated them to IDT through the HP website with this exact model. I know I got the right drivers for this model, but this is horrible, all the bugs and general-unworkability of this.
I thought that Windows 7 search was bad until I started trying to search for my many videos in my win 8 laptop. I even used KIND:= VIDEOS but the search came up empty???? This frustration never used to happen with win XP. I tried all manner of searches and although I have hundreds of videos still the search could not find a single one. Any third party search that is at least as good as XPs? I often do searches and need to use wildcards because of the plethora of files I have. If possible I would prefer a free search application.
I use the excellent Classic Shell. With my fast booting win 8 (fast booting is the only positive thing about win 8 I have encountered so far).
I bought new computer parts in January and was having several BSOD issues with Windows 7. I decided to reformat using Windows 8.1 and had not had a single crash up until about 2 weeks ago. It started as a single crash. Then another a few days later. Now I'm to the point where I get several crashes a night.
Crashes tend to happen when watching videos, but has also occurred as soon as Windows finished loading from sleep or restart.
I purchased a new hard drive this evening thinking that my hard drive was the issue, as it was one of only 2 parts I didn't upgrade when I upgraded my computer (though I did reformat my HDD several times after installing the new hardware). I installed Windows 8.1 on the new HDD and installed Windows updates with no issues. But shortly after I got another couple of crashes. I cleared the new HDD and put it back in the box since the hard drive wasn't the issue, so the crash dump files I'm including are from the original HDD. I got 2 crashes on the new HDD before clearing it, and the error messages were similar to what I was getting with the original HDD. (KMODE)
HP Laptop WIN 8, Does NOT play back any videos!!!!!!
I've sent my friend different video formats, but he can not open any of them.
Does he simply need to remove FLASH, and re-install the program....Does he also have to go into Flash settings, if there is one, and change to ALL FILE TYPES, like Windows Explorer has in it's tools, or settings? he and I also have DROPBOX, but without a player, he still can not play any videos.
What should he try next? He's not that close to me, and doubt if he knows how to download new programs like FLV, or another kind of program to work with this HP Laptop, or even go into ADD/REMOVE programs and delete the FLASH PROGRAM. If you need the model. I will get that shortly.
Does it also matter if he's using the ADOBE FLASH, or NOT? I'm not sure what his laptop has.
I use pinnacle Studio 15, so I can convert almost any video to a format, but playing on all computers can be challenging, with not everyone having the same video players. Mpg, Avi, .Mov, Quicktime, Flash
I am importing photos and videos from CANON VIXIA HF 200 HD camcorder. When I choose "Date Taken" as the sort order for the folder, date is not detected at all. All the files are tagged with date under Dec 26, 1899. I have used the same SD card to import in a windows 7 PC, all the dates are detected correctly. This issue happens only with CANON camcorder. It works fine with a NIKON camera - Dates recognized correctly.
i have my dual screen set up and everything used to work perfectly but i used the refresh you pc without effecting files feature of 8 and now when i put a video on one screen and a full screen on the other the video starts laging and runs about 2 fps. although the audio is fine.
I'm running with Windows 8.1 and still trying to get used to it, my issue now is that on some but not all videos on FB that I try to view in fullscreen it only last a matter of seconds before freezing up automatically going wacko back to the original posting and then scrolls on it's own...........
