My video and audio are "skipping". It makes no difference whether I am streaming video or viewing previously down loaded videos. I have gone to the HP site and downloaded all drivers that are available for my computer and reinstalled the drivers without sucess. I have run the unboard video tool without sucess. Any suggestions?

I have a feeling that your CPU usage might be too high and so is the memory utiliztion. When you are playing the video open task manager and check both of these then let me know.

Video delayed


Live streams are used to broadcast live video over the Internet. Whether the stream is from a website broadcasting a sports event or an instant messaging client transmitting from a webcam, there are several things you can do if the streaming is delayed or stalled. Numerous factors can affect this stream. Deleting your computer's cookies, using a different media player or turning off running programs can allow you to view these streams without delays.
Click on "tools" in your browser. This is usually located in the upper right corner of your browser. Click on Internet options. This will appear in the drop down box and is usually at the bottom. Under the "General" tab look for "Browsing History." Under this heading you can click "Delete" to have the computer delete all cookies for you automatically however to delete the cookies manually click on the "Settings" tab Click on the "View Files" tab under the "Temporary Internet Files and History Settings" box that pops up. When you do a second box will pop up with a list of cookie containing files. This may take a few seconds to load so be patient while waiting for the cookie files to load. Highlight any cookie file that you would like to delete. You can highlight more than one at a time by holding down the 'Ctrl" button on your keypad Delete the files that are highlighted by clicking on the "delete this item" located to the left in the same box. As soon as you do you will see the selected files disappear. When you are done just "X" off; this completes your task of manually deleting cookies. You might also do a disk clean up click start click on computer to open right click on your hard drive usually C: select properties in the general tab select disk clean up click ok you can view files to be deleted.
Open your Web browser and delete the cookies from the browser. For Firefox, you can do this from the "Tools" button at the top of the browser. For Internet Explorer, access the delete function from the "History" button. Cookies will slow down your browser. Use a different media player to access the live stream from your computer. Your media player may not have the right codecs or plug-ins to access the stream. You might need to reinstall the media player if there has been any damage to the software. Shut down all the programs you aren't using. If you run other programs while you are trying to stream a live video, you could be overloading your system's central processing unit. This can delay the stream. Disable the hardware acceleration. Click "Start," then click "Control Panel" from the menu. Click "Display," then choose "Settings" from the menu. Click the "Advanced" icon, then click "Troubleshoot" from the menu. Click the "Hardware Acceleration" icon. Slide the acceleration slider to the left to turn it off. Add more RAM to your computer. This allows the computer to run faster while using less processing. Refer to your computer's user manual on how to add more RAM to your system.
If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system you should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible Hope this helps.

Mac freezes w/skipping audio streaming video


This is a fascinating problem, because there are so many possible culprits... plugins, Quicktime, networking...
Because it only happens on streaming media, because it comes and goes a week at a time, and because you have a satellite connection, my first suspicions fall on your internet service. However, this would be unwieldy to prove. The obvious experiment would be to carry your computer to a friend's place where you could use non-satellite broadband... but you say the problem comes and goes, and I'm assuming there is no single "video from heck" that is always guaranteed to fail, so a failure to fail wouldn't prove very much.
Another good experiment would be for you, during one of your "good weeks," to disconnect your satellite modem's coax cables while you are streaming one of these videos to see if it triggers the same failure at the Mac. (Powering the modem down wouldn't provide the same failure mode.)
Another: Quicktime Player (as well as VLC) has an "open URL" option. If you use that instead of a browser during a "bad week" to view videos, does the failure also occur? (That would rule out the plugins.)
One thing I can advise you: don't bother running disk repair, this problem isn't anywhere near your disk.
I wish I could point a finger and say "your problem is definitely here," but that isn't going to happen with this problem. The best I can do is provide some tests to help you narrow it down.

How to play videos on Xbox 360 and stream videos to Xbox 360 – including Blu-ray, DVD movies, and videos in various file formats

theme100402.jpg

This tutorial intends to list out all the video formats supported by the Xbox 360, and explains all the available ways to play videos on Xbox 360 in HD quality or stream videos to Xbox 360.

Part 2: Different ways to play videos on Xbox 360

codecs100401.jpg

With regard to playback videos from a USB storage device, please note that the Xbox 360 will support as big of a storage device as you can format using FAT32, and the maximum size of any single file on FAT32 is 4GB. Besides that, the maximum file size for an AVI, MPEG-4 Part 2, and H.264 file that can be played is 4 GB as well. To play a file greater than 4GB on Xbox 360, you can use Windows Media Player 11 and the Zune software to stream videos from your PC to Xbox 360 console, and notice that the file format must be WMV only. Why is it so special with a WMV file? That maybe WMV is a codec developed by Microsoft.

Well, that is to say, to some extent, we can consider WMV as the optimal format to play or stream to Xbox 360. When you are gonna watch a Blu-ray/DVD movie, or an MKV video, or some files else that are out of the range of Xbox 360 workable formats, what is your solution? We usually make use of Pavtube Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate to do format conversion. Why do we choose it? Mainly because of its splendid output quality and its feature of an all-in-one application: a Blu-ray ripper, a DVD ripper, and a versatile video converter.

Part 3: How to convert Blu-ray/DVD and videos to WMV for play/stream on/to Xbox 360

We have mentioned in the above contents that the program we will use is Pavtube Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate. Go to find a step-by-step instruction from the following part.

total100402.jpg

STEP 1: Load Blu-ray, DVD or other video files into this program

Click "Add Video" to import video files, and click "Load DVD" to import Blu-ray or DVD files.

STEP 2: Select subtitle and audio track

Click on the pull down menu after "Subtitle" and "Audio" respectively to select your needed subtitle and audio track as your choice. Your selection can be reviewed in the preview window to the right hand of the main interface.

STEP 3: Select WMV as output format for Xbox 360

Click on the drop-down list at the opposite side of "Format", and then choose "WMV3 (WMV9) (*.wmv)" as output format.

wmv100402.jpg

STEP 4: Do optimal settings for the output WMV files

Click on "Settings" button, and afterwards you can adjust audio and video parameters including video/audio codec, resolution, video/audio bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel on the popup window. To make it excellent for playback on Xbox 360, you can follow the optimal settings as below:

Video codec: wmv3 (the default one)
Resolution: 1920*1080
Bitrate: 150 kbps
Frame rate: 30 fps

Audio codec: wmav3 (the default one)
Sample rate: 48 khz
Bitrate: 320 kbps
Channels: 5.1 Channels

HI.I was watchinglive streaming but there is a eror sudenly.this eror:rtsp://78.129.143.64/broadcast/pull/81.31.32.47:2030/broadcast/pull/81.19.7.50:3051/stv3.rmvb Can you help me...


Streaming audio/video quality can be affected by connection rate and Internet congestion. Many types of interruptions between your computer, your player, your computer's OS, your local network, your ISP and a streaming server can exist and cause trouble....
When you listen to the live audio/video stream, the sound or video skips, cuts out or buffers if the player doesn't have enough network bandwidth, it will buffer. Try increasing your player's buffering setting.Also:
  • Make sure you are choosing the appropriate bandwidth version of a media stream based on your Internet connection.
  • Make sure you are choosing the appropriate bandwidth settings in an Internet media player or streaming audio/video recorder.
  • Make sure NOT to download applications or files while watching/listening to media streams. Your Internet connection is shared between all open applications including your web-browser, your download manager and your streaming player. Closing applications that use your Internet connection simultaneously with your streaming player may reduce buffering.
  • Close other unnecessary applications that may be open on your computer. Reboot your computer. If you have lots of other programs open, they may be using too much processor time and/or RAM for the player to work properly.
  • Make sure your Internet connection is fast enough to reliably listen to streaming audio and/or watch streaming video online. High speed Internet connection is recommended.
  • Make sure your computer is fast enough. If your computer is old, it might be too slow to play an audio/video stream regardless of what else it's doing.
  • Update your media players and streaming audio/video recorders regularly.
Internet congestion can slow down the delivery of the stream, make it difficult for you to connect or cause buffering. Often the interruption is temporary. Please try to connect a few times at different times of the day, if possible. If you repeatedly have problems connecting, please notify your ISP - there are often quick fixes they can make when they learn about your issue.

Try the above steps you will find a solution to your problem....100% it will work.....
