It sounds like the problem may be in the latency or speed of your internet connection. I am assuming that you are using a program like skype to do VoIP operations, which send data packets with sound information in them over the internet. A slow connection will make it so that some of the packets don't arrive in time to play the sound smoothly.

Playing video is probably different because the problem is not one with your computer, but your internet connection. Even if the video is coming off the internet, because the video doesn't have to be real time, a less reliable internet connection is fine, because your computer can make a buffer of the information, which doesn't work for Chat applications, since they must be real-time.

If you are more specific about what you are doing, I can perhaps give a more detailed solution.

What program are you using on the computer to play the video?

If you're playing the video from the camera, try copying the video to the computer and playing it from there.

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.

Hello!

It is question, what tipe of connection you have.
But if it with connection everything OK (dsl), you can try install a video codec,like k-lite codec 4.321, depend from system and parts of laptop,
or can be bad screen resolution ( more at PC desktop), or bad driver for grafik card.

Msi system


If you have all drivers properly installed and a clean system without any viruses, then choppy playback and lag could indicate that the system is too weak, so you'll need to upgrade it with more RAM etc. or try closing all other programs when chatting / playing videos. But this is very unlikely. You should try scanning the laptop with antivirus and anti-spyware software, defragment the hard drive and clean it with CCleaner (www.ccleaner.com). If it still doesn't help, then you should use alternative software which uses less system resources - VLC (www.videolan.org/vlc/ ) for video playback and aMSN (www.amsn-project.net/) for instant messaging.

As for the battery indicator not being present, you can enable it back:
Start -> Control Panel -> Power Options -> Advanced -> Always show the icon in the taskbar (check this item) -> Apply

E-System laptop with slow dvd playback


This can be a bit of a tricky one to figure out. My initial response would be that you have another program or process that is causing your computer to play 'choppy' video. When you have a newer computer that was recently working just fine and now all of the sudden the video is choppy, it is usually due to another process using CPU cycles that are so important to video playback.

Start playing a DVD, but don't go to full-screen mode. Open the Task Manager. Right-Click on the task bar and select Task Manager. Click on the 'Processes' tab. There is a column labeled CPU, click on the heading 'CPU' twice. This will order the processes in order from highest CPU usage to lowest. The top two processes will most likely be your DVD player and the process that is causing your choppy playback.If the offending process isn't essential (i.e. anti-virus), then click on said process and then click the "End Process" button.

Hope this helps.

Skype video and chat


What are the specs of the computer you're using? Skype need a pretty good computer and a good bit of memory RAM to operate on a computer really well. Older computers just won't run Skype well.
