Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

All video viewing on computer constantly stop/start

Regardless of what is viewed even the local videos on news items refuse to play from start to finish. I have to constantly click the video to resume the play which seems to take an extremely long time before it resumes play. Such a frustrating & time consuming effort to play even the simplest things. This problem takes away the interest in the viewed article. How can I get something to play right through without this stop & start process? Any advice appreciated.

Why do videos play back choppily on my PC?

Well, if you're running Windows XP, I may have a few ideas. The OS itself is not usually the issue, but the age of your machine may be. Video on the web is constantly updating to higher resolutions. These require faster bandwidth internet connections and more powerful processors and video cards to support them. If your system is not running at least a Dual-Core processor, you may want to think upgrade. Also, remember that the more junk you have running on the system, the less memory is available and the slower the processor works. Remove redundant toolbars from the browser, clear history and caches and defragment the hard drive if recommended. Also, check your internet connection speed. If you are running dial-up, DSL, Satellite, or the lowest available cable internet speeds, this could also be an issue. Lastly, if you only view videos in the prime-time evening hours, remember that this is when internet bandwidth demand is highest. Even YouTube sometimes slows downs in the 7-11pm time slots.

Cannot play WMV file

This is a type of video that can be played on your computer and portable media players. The most important feature of a WMV file is that its format allows large video files to be compressed, retaining the rich quality of the video. It is a file format developed to store video content in a compressed format, so that movies and other video programs can be viewed on a personal computer. These videos can be watched from the hard drive of your computer, or other media players. To play a WMV file, a set of codecs are required. A codec is a program that can easily read a file, creating video and audio formats from the provided data. WMV files may be played on Microsoft Windows Media Player and other media players as well. The latest version of WMV is WMV10.

I cannot play videos on UTube with my IPad. The videos stop every few seconds as if they are reloading . am I doing something wrong or is it because of the"NO Flash" issue with Apple?

It could be the speed (or lack of it) of your Internet connection -- you cannot download fast-enough to provide "real-time" video. When you start to download a video, press PAUSE, and let the download continue for a minute or two. Then, click PLAY, to view the already-downloaded stream.

When viewing video such as on youtube, it will run for about 10 seconds then stop for about 30 secs then run again for 10 seconds and stop and start again

this is called "Buffering" it is due to poor download speed.
If anything else is using your internet connection, stop it while you watch streamed video

Increase the buffer size. Your PC is playing the video faster than your internet connection can stream it to you. Let the PC load the video for a minute or 2 before you start viewing it. (Not all websites load video until you begin playing it, so this may not work)
