Check what screensavers or processes you have running in the background.

I had this problem for weeks before I found it was my screensaver automaticly coming on and draining my resources.

Hope this helps.

Welcome to fixya.

Since you are able to play the video, New video drivers won't add much to the perfromance.

The stuttering of the video can be of two reasons.

1) If your source cd/dvd or even the file on your comp might have been corrupted.

This can be fixed by geting a new copy of the video or to use some better video players which have a higher error correction.

2) You are running on a low RAM/CPU.

Increasing the Virtual memory can help upto a certain extent but it has a threshold and after which moving the data from Ram to virtual memory and bringing it back to ram will become a overhead to the system and will eventually slow down.

If your system has a very slow processor or has a very low RAM or you are running multiple heavy applications parrellely, Then you may need to go for a system upgrade.

Update the graphics driver to the latest version, If that doesn't help you could try completely unistalling the driver and reinstalling the latest stable version that worked well on your system.

Stuttering


I think it might be that your PC is too clogged up by various programmes and background runs. I would format and install. (How long have you been using it in years, months? How many different programs on it? How much RAM?)

If it is playing Video files offline ok, then it sounds like you are suffering from Buffering.
When your connection speed is not fast enough to download faster than it takes to play it. The video stops or stutters. You can press pause and wait for the buffer to fill before you press play.
You can sometimes adjust the settings to buffer for 30 seconds before playback starts.
The only solution is to get a better internet connection.
Check Speedtest.net and check your connection speed.
If it is no where near what you are paying for, you may want to ring your ISP and complain

Stuttering videos on you tube


It's because the video isn't downloading fast enough. When a video starts playing just hit the pause button ( || ) and do something else for 2 or 3 minutes or so. When you come back, you will see that the red line has advanced most if not all the way to the right. Then hit the play button ( > ) and your video will play without stuttering or freezing.

Find the Realtek audio driver and re-install it. This may be a newer version than what you have right now and hopefully a fix.

Video playback stutters is choppy when the video plays it stops and stutters on a frame. it will play for a few seconds then stutter.


I had a problem similar to this and eventually traced it to the wrong mode setting on the DVD drive's transfer mode.
To check the setting, open Device Manager and then double click on the IDE controllers item. Double click on IDE channel (if there's more than one you'll need to check each one) and then select the Advanced Settings tab. On this tab should be up to two devices and each should show under "Current Transfer Mode" soemthing including the word "DMA".
If any device shows "PIO", then this is probably the problem.
If you Google "PIO versus DMA", one of the top results has a really good article on why this happens and how to force Windows to revert to DMA.

Stuttering during audio playback in Sonar


The stuttering is caused by excessive CPU usage, in other words: you have too little CPU power to play the file with the inserted synth smoothly. You could try inserting a different synth or play with the rendering-options of the synth (like disabling aliasing, etc.) or increase the audio buffer size (under audio options ?), but the only longterm solution is upgrading to a much faster computer.

Even when you find some tweak which lets you play the file (just) smoothly, adding another effect or synth is likely to cause it to stutter again, since your computer doesn't meet the official (!) minimal requirements for running Cakewalk Sonar 6, which is at least a Pentium 4 1.3GHz computer (and you have a 1.0GHz computer).

I would recommend upgrading your computer to something which at least meets the "recommend requirements" of Cakewalk Sonar 6, which is a Pentium 4 2.8GHz or newer (like any Intel Core 2 system), when you're serious about composing music.

MOST LONGER VIDEOS ARE SLOW AND "STUTTER' ALONG AS THEY PLAY


A video card with more onboard RAM would help cure the stuttering but it also depends on what you have running in the background. Hope this helps.

Samsung s730 Digital Camera - Video Stuttering Problem


I have the same problem with 640x320 video @ 30fps. The first one was very clean, but after that the video freezes every two seconds, but the audio don't. I "fixed" this issue changing the video format from NTSC to PAL. Now the videos are smooth again, and if you want NTSC playback, just use a video converter on your PC.
