Question about Dell Latitude D620 Notebook

1 Answer

Audio and Video (Windows Media, Real Player, and player software) freezes up

Thanks for the continued feedback.

Question. It seems that this problem started occuring when I connected my new Wireless Router (connected for my work-provided Dell Latitude D620 and our Dell Dimension 8400 Intel(R) Desktop Computer.

Specs of the Belkin Router...

http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=372043

I'm using [what is described as a "recent standards-based" security connection technique] the WPA-PSK security mode/authentication (with a TKIP encryption technique).

My previous router was a [traditional] "wireless g" connection, although my new "wireless n" router claims to be backwards compatible (802.11g/b). Not sure if the "n" technology is causing this issue with my audio/video streams pausing/freezing (I bring this up because I thought the problem was limited to my laptop, but then my wife played some video on YouTube (using our desktop CPU) and it experienced the same, sudden "freeze" about 30 seconds into the video.

Hopefully this sheds some additional light on the situation and a solution accordingly (btw, my Adobe Flash Player, etc. is updated).

Thanks again.

    I'm getting 1.03megabits per second...so that's pretty good.

    This problem has to be isolated to my Belkin router. Current speed is (as of 30 seconds ago) is 991.32 kbs (usually as high as 1.3 mbs). I was just at Starbucks logged into t-mobile hot spot. Never a problem with any streaming audio (eg ESPNRadio1000.com) or video (eg YouTube.com). The same with my connection at work. It's only when running video or audio streams through my homeinternet connection (running through Belkin N wireless router) that the problem with audio / video inadvertently locking up/freezing up.



    I had a Belkin tech help me update Firmware on my router...it acutally seemed to help for a few days...but then right back to the freeze up.



    Who has the skillz to solve this one...I would be thoroughly grateful for a solution!!



    Thanks.

I downloaded real player and when i try to convert my songs real playe super trial and offers pop up making it so i cant convert my songs right


Ok, it seems that that you downloaded media converter. However, please note that its only for the videos. You can't convert songs by this software. You should use it only to convert video files. For songs you can convert them in itunes or use Windows media player.

I convert a video from youtube to my mp3 and i could play the video on my windows media player but when i sync the video to my mp3 player it either wont work or it will just become an audio


That means your computer can play lots of media files because it supported multimedia files example audio or video. Unlike your mp3 player has only limited file format supported. So much better if you try to convert into different media or video format example 3gp,mp4 or avi.Try to download and install this software it might solve your problem Total Converter or Real Player Sp converter.

I cant watch videos on my computer no more why?


do you have video software installed ? Real Player, Jet Audio, Windows Media Player .......etc

make sure you have them and if you're trying to play a move, look at the extension ( Name.WMV) .WMV is for windows media video, which works on windows media player. you have to have the right program to play the video you want depending on the extension.

I have Jet Audio, its a very good program that can play many types of movies. you just go to preferences ---> file type associations ---> then check all and it will play almost any video or audio file you have. without needing to download all other software. One For All

Have video but no audio when playing dvd movies in wmp 11


Solution:
Well i could recommend another free video player instead of Windows Media Player 11. In this case, try installing Real Alternative, VLC, GoomPlayer all lf them support DVDs format.

I recommend Real Alternative over all 3 of them, to get it go here:
1) http://www.videohelp.com/tools/real_alternative and click on the "Download (mirror)".
2) after download is complete start the installation make sure to UNCHECK the following checkmarks during installation: Active X, and pluggin for firefox/opera/chrome/etc. you can leave the rest of the installation as default and click next all the time.
3) whenever you want to play a DVD close WMP 11 start Media Player Classic (installed during the real alternative installation, there should be a shourcut icon on your desktop for Real Player Classic now) on Media Player Classic go to File>Open DVD and you should have picture and sound.

Another extra side note of Real Alternative is that you can also play real media files (.rm, .rmvb) without having to install the nasty Real Media Player application

Hope this helps.
