I've been stumped by this video problem for too long and I would really appreciate it if someone here can figure it out.
(if this is not an appropriate forum for this problem, I would appreciate it if someone could point me to one that is. thanks in advance!)
The problem occurs when I am playing streaming videos from thedailyshow.com
. The audio seems to come through properly. but the video is messed up. every half a second or so, it plays a few frames from a fraction of a second before. I wish I could explain this better but it basically ruins the video. the ads that play before the actual clips play just fine.
I have not been able to reproduce this problem on any desktop or laptop that I have been able to get my hands on.
here are my specs:
Lenovo Ideapad G550
pentium dual core T4200 @ 2GHz
windows 7 home premium 64 bit
display adapter: Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family driver
provider: Intel Corporation
driver date: 8/25/2010
driver version: 184.108.40.2062
I have this problem on all my installed browsers (firefox 4, chrome, IE9) - all of them are up-to-date.
Windows 7 is up-to-date. and so is Flash and all those other plugins.
youtube works fine... and so does playing pretty much any other video file. so, this has to be a software issue, right?
please let me know if I can provide any other info.
