Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I've been experiencing audio and video problems for the last few weeks and have tried just about everything to resolve this matter. I'm able to play all music in wmp or watch downloaded movies but I'm unable to hear Windows sounds or other internet sounds. I'm unable to watch Youtube videos because they play slow. It takes about 5 minutes to watch a 1 minute clip. When I attempt to listen to other music or hear sounds, I only hear a scratchy noise from the speakers.

You need to update your codecs.  a codec is a Coder/decoder hence the name.  the file is coded at one place and your computer has to decode it.  First off you have to find out what file isnt playing correctly be it a divx, and avi, an mpeg, an mp3 , an mp4 , a wav...... and on and on.  once you figure out wich one is messing up do a google search for the codec.  example divx = bad then search "divx codec download" and follow the links till you find one you can download.  scan it for virus then install.

should fix the problem.

I am experiencing a problem with playback. A few times I have tried to play the tape to capture and the counter will not work and the screen stays blue?? I used the head cleaner on it and it played...


This is usually caused by a severely oxidized video drum. If you 've tried running a cleaning tape through the camera with no results the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair cost low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Facebook is experiencing some problems since 5 hours ago, so this might be a problem. Try to repeat the action, otherwise you have to just wait, until it is all right.

Mac freezes w/skipping audio streaming video


This is a fascinating problem, because there are so many possible culprits... plugins, Quicktime, networking...
Because it only happens on streaming media, because it comes and goes a week at a time, and because you have a satellite connection, my first suspicions fall on your internet service. However, this would be unwieldy to prove. The obvious experiment would be to carry your computer to a friend's place where you could use non-satellite broadband... but you say the problem comes and goes, and I'm assuming there is no single "video from heck" that is always guaranteed to fail, so a failure to fail wouldn't prove very much.
Another good experiment would be for you, during one of your "good weeks," to disconnect your satellite modem's coax cables while you are streaming one of these videos to see if it triggers the same failure at the Mac. (Powering the modem down wouldn't provide the same failure mode.)
Another: Quicktime Player (as well as VLC) has an "open URL" option. If you use that instead of a browser during a "bad week" to view videos, does the failure also occur? (That would rule out the plugins.)
One thing I can advise you: don't bother running disk repair, this problem isn't anywhere near your disk.
I wish I could point a finger and say "your problem is definitely here," but that isn't going to happen with this problem. The best I can do is provide some tests to help you narrow it down.
