i have a problem with audio on all internet buffers and it wasnt doing this before i tried installing the latest version of winamp 5.56. it gave me an error message saying the file was corrupted, allowing me to ignore, retry, or abort. i tried ignore and it gave me the message again so i just aborted. after that, any internet buffers have problems. for example, on Internet when watching videos, the video plays just fine, but the audio is choppy but still in sync with the video. video and sound will play for like 10 seconds and then the sound will cut out for 2 or 3 seconds only to come back still in sync with the video.
i have the same issue with netflix and listening to online radio stations.
slowness, stalls and really choppy video and audio everywhere on my computer. even the start-up windows chime is all warbly and choppy. i have problems with video stored on my hd, played from a dvd, as well as video online on Internet and my smugmug page. i have not noticed anything in particular taking up a lot of memory in the task manager, but there are an awful lot of programs in there and some duplicates of system processes
here is what i have tried -removed all unused programs, files -de-fragged hd -ran disk cleanup -removed unneeded programs from start-up process -ran windows, qt, media player, java and flash updates -ran virus scanner and registry cleaner
here is what i am working with: -toshiba tecra a6 laptop, always plugged in to ac power -windows xp sp2 -intel cpu t1300 @ 1.66ghz -504 mb ram -23 gb free space of a 52gb hd -minimal programs - mostly office 2007, outlook express, nero and adobe plus some tiny insignificant ones like my harmony remote program -nortons 360 (though i have removed this and still have the problem)
i am pretty comfortable working my way around advanced settings on my laptop and know enough to know what i should not change without help.
I had a playlist running on WMP and all of a sudden one of the songs started being really choppy and kept stopping, etc.When I reboot my computer, it takes AT LEAST 10 minutes until I get to the desktop and can fully work on it. It spends minutes on the opening screen with the Windows XP thing running left to right I'm working on it now and it's going fine. Whenever I open a program though it takes a long time but ends up working ok. I can't do anything when I open a song or video.
I have windows xpsp3.i have completely updated my computer,including the video card. my computer plays dvds fine and is crystal clear when i play them through windows media player. (media player 11).however,when im online looking at videos through UTube,or any other type of video player,including videos from cooliris,or just browsing cooliris,my video is choppy,or blurry. i use multiple browsers and have tried them all. none of them make a difference. i have google chrome (beta),which is the only google that can be used for cooliris,internet explorer 8,firefox,and lunascape 6.i cant understand why video works great on media player while playing videos and does not when playing any videos onlie. i have an (nvidia geforce mx 4000 ) it is updated. i also updated my directx version which is (9.0).

When I try to play video files the video will pause for a split second every few seconds and I don't know what the problem is. In fact my computer is running much slower than normal lately. I've gotton rid of unused programs, I've run SpyBot, and I've updated my video drivers.
Dell Inspiron 600m laptop. Intel Pentium M processor (1.8 GHz) and 2GB RAM. I have a Mobility Radeon 9000 graphics card.
I just recently reformatted my laptop and couldn't help but notice the horrible video playback. I did a few things such as installing DirectX, updating flash player, and unchecking all non-microsoft related startup processes (msconfig). My laptop sometimes does great and plays my game at 20-30 FPS, but then after a few minutes, the FPS drops to about 3. Same with watching videos. It's like looking at pictures really. Thats how bad the choppiness is.
So I decided to do some investigation and installed Process Explorer to look into detail. Turns out that under the System process, there is a thread called kmixer.sys which is a driver for a soundcard. This one thing has spikes in CPU usage up to 70% sometimes. Another thread to look at under Svchost is krnl or kernel something. Also uses quite a bit sometimes.
I wanted to see if anyone could possibly help me as I would greatly appreciate it. I looked at just about every forum there is about my problems, and still haven't gotten a solid solution yet.

I have been having this problem for a couple of days now. I was listening to music which had been skipping for a while but not to bad and suddenly everything froze. i killed winamp and hit pulled up the task mgr. cpu usage was staying around 100% different processes popping up to the top. i downloaded process explorer and it has a file highlighted in dark red wmiprvse.exe i read this could be a virus but i verifed it was in the correct folder. im running win xp media center edition with sp3. while looking at processes in the task mgr the system idle process is usually at the top of the list. my computer pretty much freezes up every few seconds now for a second or 2 and whenever i open any program it freezes up for a good minute or 2. Anything else ya'll might need to know feel free to ask. is there a way i could check if it is a hardware problem? this is a Hp pavillion laptop amd turion 1.99ghz 2gb ram. i have also tweaked xp to run faster by removing the themes among other things. I think thats the only thing saving me right now.
any hulu/Internet/etc. streaming content type videos, even on the lowest hd setting (288p, for ex.) just ends up being choppy, worst in full screen. here are my specs:
amd athlon xp 2600+ cpu 1.0 gig of ram pny geforce fx5200 256 mb pci graphics card windows xp home ed. w/sp3 160 gb hd
an older computer with an older processor, and if anything, it's probably the cpu that is preventing me from having normal playback with streaming content. i had a laptop with a core duo processor that worked fine with this type of video, but i fried it so i am stuck with this for now. haven't used this pc in a few years so now i am noticing it's limitations as far as this stuff goes. if anyone has had any luck with an older machine getting relatively normal playback with these streams. i have tried reducing hardware acceleration, drivers are fully updated for graphics card, hard drive is formatted so no viri are causing this, reinstalling flash, changing settings on monitor, and playback is the same.
Trouble watching video from one of my hard drives (XP). At first I thought it was a codec problem so I uninstalled and reinstalled the codecs but that never worked. Then I tried watching video on the other hard drive and no problem there.
I confirmed that its a hard drive problem when I tried to copy one of the files from the problematic hard drive, it showed 30mins left where it normally takes 1-2mins.
I checked to see if the channel was in PIO mode but all are in DMA.
I have managed to put video footage onto my PC from a video cassette (by plugging my VCR into the TV aerial socket). The video footage is saved on my PC as .mpg files & when I open them, they play fine on Windows Media Player.When I import them on to Windows Movie Maker, they are recognised as video footage and I am able to put them into the collections as video. However, for some reason, when I drag them onto the timeline, they go onto the audio line & I can't get them to go on the video line, so when I play it, the sound plays but there is no picture. I have tried saving them as .AVI files but that makes no difference
just got a new computer recently and updated the media player to windows media player 11 but when i try to play a video file it just plays the audio with no video.. anyone know why this is or have any tips?
I'm using Win XP. Recently, in running video files, I'm getting audio, but the video portion is blank. My player is Windows Media Play 10, with current codecs. Preferences for the player are set to include all types of video files. I also have QuickTime installed, and DivX, although I don't use them. No previous problem like this. I've reinstalled Media Player and have the latest codecs package to go with it. Video files most used are .avi and .mpeg. I've got 512 ram, and that has not been a problem in the past. So, I'm guessing my video card has soured.
The videos that I have been downloading (.avi or xvid) movies give me video and only background audio. The music in the background and the background noise plays, but the voices of all characters does not play.
I think someone has posted a similar problem on this. I used to be able to view movies perfectly, but all of a sudden all I get is sound and no picture. This applies also to my DVD's using the player, and these are DVD's which have worked on this machine before.
with my outlook not opening for me, then act9! wouldn't open, act9 is a database system, then i couldn't uninstall act9, as i wanted to reinstallit. it said the unistall progam was missing. now when i'm watching Internet or video online it is very stuttery and the audio is stuttery too. it sort of glitches every 2 seconds or so.

I have 5 hard drives in this system. My music files reside on the second SATA drive. When I am listening to music, it will stutter if I am doing any disk reading or writing, even when I am using a networked computer to access files on the machine. The videos on the other two SATA drives do the same thing; those hard drives are dynamically linked. The PATA drive has DivX movies on it, they don�t stutter quite as bad. I have tried reinstalling the OS, without any other third party software, virus, or internet security programs (I don�t network or connect to the Internet when I do that). That doesn�t remedy the problem. I remove Windows components to the basic level. None of those steps work. I make sure all of the drivers and updates are current. The problem occurs with almost all software: WMP, Real Player, Quick Time, Pinnacle, MightSoft, and others. When I stream audio or video from the network or the net, it doesn�t happen. I tried a couple of registry fixers they didn�t work either. If someone could point me in the correct direction, I would be mighty pleased. I don�t want to upgrade to Vista or another computer at this time. Otherwise, everything works just fine. I will upgrade to a dual or quad in about six months or so after Vista is more stable. However, I think I will keep this one as my sound system if I can correct this problem. I am not unintelligent (well maybe just a little slow out of the gate).

I try to play video/audio on my hard drive or the internet, my computer freezes and have to restart. It doesn't freeze everything, just the video player or internet. But I always have to restart. I could still move my mouse, however I cannot open anything else till it unfreezes.
I have a dell Inspiron 6000. I cannot get audio or video to work on sites that use pop-ups for them. For example, I cannot use most online radio streams or access video clips on cnn's website. This occurs with both Firefox and IE. The pop ups do appear but there is no video/audio.
Im new in this Forum, but I'm pretty sure someone will be able to help me.It's been some tone now that my Windows Media player 11 doesn't recognize an audio cd or a video dvd and can't pay them. I get a weird message "Cannot find the file. If you are trying to burn, play, or sync an item that is in your library, the item might point to a file that has been moved, renamed, or deleted." All that for a single audio cd!.Auto play is checked on, any information from the Internet has been unchecked. I just can't find a solution.I run Windows XP Pro SP2, fully updated. I also have Vista Home Premium installed on another HD of my computer.
I have win xp sp2 fully update with all drivers etc upto date. WMP11 was working fine and I can't figure what has caused the issue. All video files play, but only the audio, the screen remains blank. This applies to local files or steaming from places such as mlb.tv etc. I have tried removing WMP11, and 10 but nothing allows media files to play. No other software would work either. I finally got VLC to work by selecting OpenGL mode, but that would work in no other mode either.
I have checked I have all codecs, tried removing all and re adding, but nothing seems to work.
