Windows 7: Choppy video - online flash and VLC

02 Nov 2009   #1

Choppy video - online flash and VLC


When using sites like BBC Iplayer or youtube the sound plays fine but the video freezes for a second every few seconds, I also see the same issue in VLC, Windows media seems fine.

Also my PC Beeps repetitively when i exit Firefox after having choppy playback, this last for a minute or so, this doesn't happen with vlc.

I have tried updating my nvidea drivers and also direct X but this has made no difference.

I use the latest version of Firefox but have tried internet explorer and it has the same issues.

My PC is brand new from Dell, although I re-installed everything from a fresh copy of windows seven as soon as i got it

Specs are

Intel (R) Core(TM)2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.5GHz 2.5GHz
RAM - 6 GB
Windows 64 Bit
I have 1 terabyte of space split over 2 actual drives that are partitioned into 4 drives, my C drive has 84 GB spare.
Nvidea GeForce GT220 graphics card

Does anyone have any ideas?

Apologies I relied on the windows update driver command to update my drivers, went to the nvidea website and downloaded new drivers from there and it works.

Suggest you go to the manufacturers website here:
unhide system file and Documents and Settings
at the top left you will see "Downlod Drivers" then click "Download Drivers" again and use option 2.
