Check for updates or just update adoe flash player
Adobe Flash Player allows users to view videos made with Flash, a common online video format that can be viewed by both Mac and PC users.

Because technology is consistently emerging, Adobe frequently updates its Flash player. Downloading an update is free, and may be required in order to watch videos online.

You will need at least 128 MB of RAM available on your computer to update Flash player, and Internet Explorer version 6.0 or later for Windows XP, version 7.0 or later for Windows Vista and Internet Explorer 8.0 or later for Windows 7.

Open Internet Explorer and navigate to Adobe's Flash player download site.
Click the download link and follow the instructions on your screen.

Click "Allow" or "Install" if your security system asks if you want to download the file.
Avoid running other programs while the download is going on.

Flash player tests itself by showing you a brief video when the download is complete.
If you do not see this video, the player has not been successfully installed and you must try the download again.
or you might try
Adobe Flash Player is a cross-platform browser-based application runtime.

Goes from clear to fuzzy when playing movie

You are probably on a website streaming a show or movie. Most sites default the screen resolution to "AUTO" setting. This means that the application monitors the data rate and buffering and will automatically reduce or increase the resolution to prevent the video from stalling do to buffer overruns. This can happen in you have a slow internet connection but are trying to view HD files, or if there is heavy traffic on your ISP LAN (Cable Internet Systems). You can stop this by choosing the resolution you desire, but you may find that you will then have choppy, delay-ridden playback.

How can i download full movies to my pc

Try here: Most movies are DRM, copyrighted material. If you illegally download your ISP may send you a "Nasty Gram". Are you a member of NETFLIX, you can view movies, not download, if you have a membership, around $8 a month. I have it on my HDTV and computers. As I'm sure you know, Movies require a lot of HDD space. 1 to 3GB's per movie. Unless you have a big external drive to store on.

Choppy Video? What do you mean choppy video? Is the video starting and stopping rather than playing continuous? If so, either you need more memory or the site you are watching the video from is slow. Also sometimes you line speed on the computer might be slow if you are watching the video online.

How does the video play if you played a DvD in your computer? If it plays the DvD without stalling, then your problem is more than like the site you are watching or the line speed as you stream the video.

Pls help me with my sound,i cant listen to music.i reinstalled window XP and thenwhen the system finaly came up i found out that i can no longer hear any sound when i try to play an audio cd

You need to install the audio driver to hear sounds. You need to identify the audio card and if you do not have the audio driver CD, then you can download it from the manufacturers WEB site.

I just upgraded my PC 300PL IBM computer's RAM from 128 MB, to 256 MB on each slot (3 slotes), When i watch videos from my pc, or videos from online sites, The playback is slow and choppy. I was wondering...

The problem is that the video-player on your computer is "starving" for audio/video, because your download-speed is not fast-enough to "feed" the stream.

So, when a video starts to play, click PAUSE, and wait for the download to proceed for a while; then, click PLAY, to view the already-downloaded stream.
