    Does it do the same thing if you are watching a movie from your Hard Drive? (Are you sure that the discs and the lens are clean? You might be surprised...) Are you running lots of other programs in your system tray?

Acer has jerky video


The video is jerky because the rate at which the video stream is being received on the internet is not keeping up with the rate at which the video is being played on the screen by the video player application that you are using. The video player has an incoming video stream buffer and if the amount of video data in it falls below a minimum amount, the player will pause until the incoming stream refills it to some point above the minimum amount. Most video players will have a pause button and clicking it will manually pause the video player so allowing its buffer (or cache) to fill until you click its play button again. The player will have an indicator of how much of the video content has been downloaded into the buffer and if you pause until all the content has been downloaded, clicking play at this point results in a play of the video that will not be jerky.

I have an Acer Aspire5735 I ignored an update for the Acer Arcade Deluxe this month, now the arcade does not play dvds nor can I locate any info on the update


If there is not an automatic update function I would recommend removing the Acer Arcade Deluxe, if it's only used for DvD's and download a much better free programme VLC media Player, which will work much better available here http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

How to play Blu-ray movie on 5536G?


Arcade Deluxe is nothing more than a **** media center with a useless media player in it - get rid of it. If you want to play BR disks there are 2 options: either install a good codec pack like http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=5748&s=775 an use WMP or install and use VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

Movie buffering


movie buffering is normal for internet movie players,most are fast acting and powerful too.buffer to 100% then they will stream well.
More RAM will help the functions along faster but the softwares drive the devices output signals thru to the media side,
Update the devices drivers too
You problem may be the software or the file format of the movie
ie CD,DVD,AVI,DIVX,XVID.....and so on

There are lots of formats for media available so check the machines player type,Windows Media Player or Arcade

also the type of disk format will effect to out come too,
ie,wrong disk no work

Hope this helps ,Cheers Misterdj

RE ACER ASPIRE 5735 No sound on DVD


You need to play DVDs through Acer Arcade. To do this you can turn off autoplay (use help function), or assign Acer Arcade to automatically play DVDs. If you still want to use Windows Media Player to play your DVDs you must uninstall Acer Arcade.

How do you put movies dvds and videos on your mix max mp3 player?


I think I've covered this one before... not sure though so here we go...
First of all DVD's are copyrighted and digitally encoded so that they can't be copied to your computer or other devices. Windows Media Player can't rip them because of this encoding. Not only that if you were somehow able to copy it to the player the Mix Max can't play DVD formatted videos, it can only play WMV (Windows Media Video) formatted videos that are properly "encoded" for play on the Mix Max.
Check out the link below for how to properly encode your videos for play on the Mix Max.
http://digiblue.com/customer-service/faqs/disney/mixmax/index.html
It has a PDF download with instructions on how to properly encode videos so that they will play on the Mix Max.
