Video and Audio Freeze

Here is my problem: Every time I try watching a CNN video or a video on You Tube, the picture and sound freeze. After a minute, it starts and then stops again and it continues on and on...start, freeze,start, freeze. Drives me nuts.

I have uninstalled my plug-in which is Flash Player and have re-installed it again, but it is still doing it.
Please help. :(

    I have tried what you suggested many times and nothing. I get to watch the video for a few seconds and then it starts freezing, then it starts up again, and it freezes again. It gets so annoying and so frustrating because it sounds like someone is turning the volume up and down but the video is also freezing.



    Somebody told me that I might have to re-insatll Windows XP. Is this true? Wiil I have to back-up all files?



    I have removed a few programs that I am not using thinking perhaps it had to do something with the memory, but nothing is happening.



    I will appreciate any help you can give me.



    Thanks.

    I am having the same problem. It is not a broadband connection issue because the freezing continues every 15-30 seconds even after I close my browser window. The only thing that will stop it is to restart the system. After a restart, everything works fine until I go to watch a few online videos. Sometimes it begins immediately, and other times I can watch several before the video and audio start freezing up intermittantly. And yes, this is driving me crazy too.

Seeing the word "buffering" during the freeze would indicate that your internet connection if very slow. If you have broadband and share your network on a wireless router make sure that it is secure so noone else can siphon your go juice. Post back here with any information you think might help and I'll get back to ya. Good luck.

Sounds like a slow internet connection. Try pausing the video until it has buffered at least halfway and then play again.

Hope this helps,

erch.

My recorded tv freezes when trying to watch them


The whole thing freezes? As in the mouse or keyboard won't even work?

If it's just the video that freezes and you can shut it off, most likely it's a codec issue. Which is dumb since everything you're using came packaged together in the unit. Installing a third party codec pack would solve this issue.

Though, if you're whole PC is freezing when you try to play a video then I have a few other questions to ask you to narrow the potential problems down:

1. Open up the player that opens automatically when you try to watch something, but don't load a video into it. Did everything still freeze?
2. If not, then open a video file that is not something you recorded from TV, like a DVD or a video clip from the net. Did it freeze then?
3. When it freezes, does it freeze instantly? Or does it run for a little bit then freeze. If the latter is the case, what happens in the time between opening the file and the lock down?

Picture freeze,long tme to restart does it again


Unless you have good / fast access to the Internet (or wireless or 4G network), it may take a long time to download a movie to your device. If the speed of download is slower than the speed of the play, the picture freezes ... essentially, it is waiting for the completion of the download for the next few frames (of the movie). That is why the picture freeze .... and it will start again after sufficient data has been download to continue / start playing (the movie) again.

WHEN USING YOU TUBE THE VIDEOS SEEM TO STICK AND THEN START AGAIN and then stick again and start up again ....why?


They aren't downloading quickly enough to play smoothly. This can be an issue with YouTube or your computer. Try a few of these suggestions:
- Play the video in a lower resolution. The menu is in the bottom right of the video, choose a non-HD resolution and it will download much faster.
- Stop other downloads. If you are downloading multiple files/videos/large websites (especially those with animations in Flash), your connection may not be fast enough to support this. Pause a few of the downloads.
- Pause the video and wait until the light red bar fills up. This will let the video download fully before you begin viewing.
- Reboot your browser and/or computer. Sometimes they just need to clear their heads. =)
- Get a faster internet connection.

Hope that helps, if it does, please give me a few thumbs up!

Computer slows down after ten minutes of watching video


Try downloading latest video drivers and Inmatrix Zoom player. It comes with an auto downloader for video codecs. Also try VLC Media Player and Media Player Classic. If all else fails, try Analog-X cache booster.

TV shuts off on it's on after about 20 - 30 minutes of play


freeze like the picture is in pause?

picture freezing is desired function on the remote and handled mainly by the "picture and picture" circuits. but the video that is involved and processed there is handled by many circuits and microprocessors.
what you describe is an intermittent heat related problem if you almost can set a watch to the the shut-off time. you can feel, if your a tech, what part is running hot with a finger or start freezing a suspect part with freeze spray and see if stays on long past overdue. make sure your vent holes in the back are not covered and keep the back at least 1/2 foot from the wall.

Can't hold a picture


Your problem while watching cable tv sounds like a bad tuner with little or no adjacent channel rejection. The problem with the DVD and I think to some extent the cable sounds like a video processing problem. This unit has digital video circuits and could easily cause the problem you describe. The easiest and probably the cheapest solution would be to replace the board with a refurbed unit. Two companies which sell refurbed boards are PTS Electronics, Bloomington, IN (www.ptsinc.com) and Tri-State Module, Evansville, IN (www.tristatemodule.com). Good luck.
