Video files are demanding of system resources. Maybe your computer can't keep up. Graphics card and/or memory up-grade might help.

My recorded tv freezes when trying to watch them


The whole thing freezes? As in the mouse or keyboard won't even work?

If it's just the video that freezes and you can shut it off, most likely it's a codec issue. Which is dumb since everything you're using came packaged together in the unit. Installing a third party codec pack would solve this issue.

Though, if you're whole PC is freezing when you try to play a video then I have a few other questions to ask you to narrow the potential problems down:

1. Open up the player that opens automatically when you try to watch something, but don't load a video into it. Did everything still freeze?
2. If not, then open a video file that is not something you recorded from TV, like a DVD or a video clip from the net. Did it freeze then?
3. When it freezes, does it freeze instantly? Or does it run for a little bit then freeze. If the latter is the case, what happens in the time between opening the file and the lock down?

Delete freeze


Depress the power button for a few seconds till the computer turns off. Wait a few seconds and restart.

Where does it freeze, during startup, or once within Windows? If you make it somewhere into the Windows operating system, restart, and during startup, peck on F8 key till you get to the B/W Startup options. Cursor down to "Safe Mode with Networking", and press the Enter key. If it makes it to Safe Mode, use "System Restore" (SR) to back up to a date before the problem occurred. If SR isn't available, or doesn't work, enter Safe Mode again, use your IE, Firefox, Google Chrome, or Opera browser to go to www.download.com. In the right-hand column of Most Popular Downloads, you'll find Malwarebytes. Download and run that program to see if the problem came from a malware infection. Follow the instructions to scan, and afterwards to remove the infections, then restart the computer.

My compaq presario 5000 when i go on to the internet to sites like hulu crackle and youtube and try to watch a video it plays but is slow and skipping/freezing but the audio plays fine what wrong


It sounds like you are having a video card issue. Either that or the computer is running too many programs at once and causing it to run out of ram.

Having problems with playing video's on my computer via websites (news page etc) will work for @ 10 seconds then pause for @ 30 seconds then work for 10 seconds and continue to repeat this process I have...


Videos on websites need time to load before they will play seamlessly. When you first load the video, pause it and wait for a few minutes. You may see a bar loading across the part of the window that shows how much has loaded. This will take a few seconds or a few minutes depending on how fast your internet connection is.

All videos are very choppy such as HULU or utube and machine seems to run slow in general . Start up and shut down seem to be slow also.


Downloaded videos can sometimes play "faster" than your Internet connection can download them, in the same way that parents can never keep enough food in the refrigerator to feed their teenagers.

Start downloading the video, and click 'pause' to let the download continue for 30 to 60 seconds, and then click 'play', to see if the video is "smoother" when the "buffered" content is being read from your local disk-drive.

If not, then the "performance" of your computer needs to be investigated.
How much RAM in your computer?
Windows 2000? XP? Vista? 7?
Is your anti-virus software working correctly?
Have you recently done a "full" virus-scan -- computer-viruses can cause your computer to slow down.
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer, and then reboot.
Does the reboot go faster with _NO_ Internet connection?

My new computer will not play videos from the web.


Your problem might be that your Internet connection is too slow. If that's not the problem, then it could be your anti-virus program kicking in when you try to open a video. Try turning it off and then try your videos. Also make sure you have the latest version of the Microsoft media player and Flash player updated. Video uses a lot of resources so if your computer has any performance issues, they will show up when trying to do something that is resource intensive like playing videos. So the problem might not be the videos at all, but your system might need defragmenting and cleaned up to get it performing at its best.

Whenever I try to play clips ( ie Youtube, etc) they keep stopping after a few seconds, they stop for maybe 20 seconds and they play for four seconds and stop and so on


This is generally a symptom of a download problem. Check your netowrk connections and verify that they are solid. The video is bufferred down to your local machine and displayed. The display is utilizing the downloaded data faster than you can load additional packets from the net. If you can not find the delay, pause the video for a little while. It will continue to load. That should allow the video to play to completion without delay. If not, then your graphics card may need an upgrade. If the card itself does not have sufficient on-board memory, the information needs to be refreshed from main computer memory which will slow things down.

Check those things first and update this with your results. There are other possibilities as well.

Thanks,
Dan
