    It doesn't have anything to do with codecs, most players are able to play mpeg2 by default.

    Its also far better to install VCL player, then get lost in the codec jungle.

    DVD Players are different from PCs, in that they usually always have some degree og problems in one aspect or another, the only solution known to me is to buy a better player.

    In some cases it may also help to use a quality media, verbatims dvd-r for instance. If it even lags on brought DVDs, then its likely to be broken, or some useless junk device.

Compaq Presario Cq57-210US - Online Vide Lag


Make sure you have the latest version of flash player installed. What browser are you using? If it's chrome, make sure there aren't multiple versions of flash player enabled by opening a new tab and going to chrome://plugins. Are you having trouble with local video (on the machine itself) as well? If so, you may need to update your graphics drivers. If none of the above are helpful, try downloading and installing the latest version of the k-lite codec pack

Standalone DVD player with DivX why does the VBR encoded Audio lag the Video


DivX or XVid encoded MP4 Video codec or AVI will almost always have either the Dolby Digital AC3 Codec or the MP3 encoded audio codec see the following links; Fraunhofer MP3 Decoder or LAME MP3 Encoder

This fixed audio lag can sometimes be caused by VBR audio encoded files and starts part way through the playback as opposed to CBR audio some standalone DVD players will exhibit sound lag in this case. It is a good idea to re-encode the VBR to CBR audio this usually solves the problem.

I suggest that you convert/encode all your DivX AVI files into CBR audio to avoid any such errors; all commercial DVD Video Audio is encoded in CBR (constant bitrate) which also reduces the audio filesize unless its encoded in LCPM which will give a much larger audio component.

Check the audio bitrate type open the AVI in GSpot the example below shows an AC3 audio already in CBR so can be left alone and should work fine.

MANUAL CONVERSION PROCESS

This audio MP3 conversion process it a bit of a long way around I know, but it does work!
  • Open video in VirtualDubMod or VirtualDubMP3 (if there is an index error this can sometimes fix it for you.
c5c1d04.jpg
  • Ignore the error warning that the video contains VBR audio.
  • Extract audio as MP3 ("demux" in VirutaldubMod or save as WAV, then rename to MP3 in VirtualdubMP3).
  • Convert audio to WAV with CDex
  • Open original video in VirtualDub,choose "direct stream copy" for video and "WAV audio" with "Full audio processing" with CBR MP3 compression (and interleaving with appropriate delay if out of sync) for audio.
SEMI-AUTOMATED CONVERSION PROCESS

You could also use several other easier methods including AVIDemux which uses VirtualDubMod or scan in the DVD-Video using TMPEnc v4.0 Xpress and applying a time lead OR lag however this does not solve a progressive lag *** but can be used to re-author a fixed audio lag error in milliseconds you can use either Windows Media Player Classic or KVM Player in real-time to find this lag or lead error and then adjust accordingly

If you can't work AVIDemux then AVIrecomp will be your best solution this is a bit more user friendly

NOTE> always keep a Backup copy of the AVI before you make any drastic changes as you could make the file unplayable the above process will only work on FIXED AUDIO LAG AVI files.

Progressive Audio Lag (starts in synch and runs fast or slow throughout the AVI is almost impossible to remove with re-encoding the AVI using the above methods.

*** Feel free to comment if you know of a foolproof way other than performing a full re-encode from the MPG2 or DVD VOB file.

When I play DVDs on my HP Pavillion dv5220, the sound and picture lag even when using different DVD playing programs. Why is the DVD stuttering, and what can I do to fix it?


Try using a third party program like WinDVD or InterVideo. You can get free downloads of a lot of them, and HP has never had the best record for player technology so they can use all the help they can get!

High DPC Latency WHAT OS???????????????????
what Zd8000 is this, full model name on the service tag.
pC come in submodels, mine has 6 processor choices, ram size and video GPU chips,. offered on one submodel.
we cant guess what PC you have, nor its upgrades
nor what OS you are running. NOW, nor what it came with new.

id bet it's infected , run ESET, off line scanner yet, its FREE
If XP it for sure is INFECTED, as ALL are now. XP is dead now.
no support for 3 long years, and is a virus magnet.
and very very powerful.
and run full Malwarebytes, next.
if it ran before, and not now, it is infected.
or overheating.
or got tons of startup progs, loaded ,
what is the service tag data.
are you running the original HP software?
that means not upgraded to w10.
nor using MS disks to install OS , only HP works right or f11 key
reinstalls.
lag. (tests that help prove what it might be)
  1. lags on playing C: test.wav file>
  2. lags playing C: test.mp3/?
  3. lags if you click test windows sounds, in CP + sound
  4. LAGS OFF DVD MOVIE?
  5. LAGS ONLY ON OLINE
  6. LAGS ON ms solitaire?
  7. lags on DVD loaded local games?
  8. lags only on steam games....
  9. lags only on live web games
  10. my guess is it lags from even just sounds. (even music online or off line, not just Video lag, as all on line videos can do.
  11. even my netflix lags on my TV with 200mbs/ fiber. (and has nothing to do with my systems, its the internet or netflix caused.

The DPC spikes, my guess are software overload.
too many things running or
how many cores is your processor have?
i looked up on pc like yours,
it had and old Pentium 4.
ATI Mobility Radeon X600 with 256MB dedicated
are you on wifi or fast broad band, with ethernet direct connect./.
but this pc has no gigalan jack, oops, that be bad.
running XP are you>?

first try this on this old dog pc

in the start box. type, msconfig.
then see startup tab
then shut them all off for a test.
see if runs ok now.
why not show one example in detail that fails
show slow video link online. a youtube.
or better , name a game that runs slow or lags
nAME JUST ONE Thing,
tell where it resides.
1: HDD , folder. local.
2: CD/ or DVD drive.
3: online, games.

we cant guess what you do exactly so please say so.

what Id do with this pC
is give it to GOODWILL (tm) then walk over to the newer Laptops
and get one with w7 or newer
and WIN !

I have a portable Kawasaki DVD player. It does not play AVI videos. Tellme what to do please.


This normally depends on what FOURCC the AVI has encoded inside the file.

Look here at my DivX Rox!! facebook group for the correct DivX FOURCC that will normally work on most standalone players on AVI with FOURCC =DIVX or DX50

Most DVD players that have DivX support require these two FOURCC tags, DIV3,DIV4,DIV5 and DIV6 wont always work but sometimes you can change this without re-encoding using a batch FOURCC changer.

As a general rule of thumb even when you change the FOURCC of the AVI you may experience audio lag on the file it is best to convert all AVI's to DivX using the DivX Convertor that is available with the DivX Professional codec costs $19.99 (£13.99) and is well work the money.

I have had some success with Xvid AVI's with FOURCC XVID but with audio lag and video jerks.

It Skips


Either the disk is dirty or the laser lens is. Buy a DVD lens cleaner and use on your player. For the disks, carefully wipe it with lint-free cloth or toilet tissue. Be careful not to scratch the disk. All you are really trying to do is wipe off any fingerprints or lint/dirt.

This can some times be caused by VBR audio encoded files as opposed to CBR audio some standalone DVD players will exhibit sound lag in this case. It is a good idea to re-encode the VBR to CBR audio this usually solved the problem.

Although this is usually with DivX (AVI) files that have been re-authored to DVD-Video I suggest that you convert all audio to CBR to avoid any such errors.

this conversion process it a bit of a long way around I know, but it does work!

1) Open video in VirtualDubMod or VirtualDubMP3 (if there is an index error this can sometimes fix it for you.

2) Ignore the error warning that the video contains vbr audio.
