Fedora :: Play High Resolution Videos - Appears To Slow Then Becomes Choppy

May 2, 2010

I'm having issues playing HD videos ( some with 720p level, much more apparent with 1080p level one) The video appears to slow then becomes choppy, becoming de synced from the audio that carries on as normal. This occurs with both VLC player and XBMC, though the latter is better. My specs: Fedora 12 3.2 Ghz P4 processor 1Gig ram Radeon 9800 xt gfx card (I couldn't get the 9.3 ati driver to work)

Ubuntu :: Streaming Videos Choppy With High Resolution

Mar 16, 2010

Pentium 4, 512MB RAM, GeForce2 MX/MX 400
When my machine ran Windows XP, I was able to watch full screen videos on Hulu, etc. with no problem. Now my machine is running Ubuntu (Koala). I'm using Firefox with the most recent Adobe Plugin (and I've made sure there are no other flash players installed). Streaming video (at low to medium resolution) is pretty choppy but still watchable most of the time. It is not watchable when played full screen or with high resolution. When I download the .flv file and play it through VLC, everything is smooth. Are there any tricks I can try to get the video running more smoothly, like it did before? (Disabling desktop effects made no difference.) Should I just get some more RAM? (I realize my RAM is low, but it didn't seem to effect my video watching before.)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Play Some Videos With Vlc But They Are Too Choppy?

Nov 20, 2010

Im trying to play some videos with vlc but they are too choppy, I guess my comp is too slow. They are something like 1700x1000 h.264. What can I re-encode these too to maintain good quality but increase playback speed? If possible, an ffmpeg command to do this would be awesome.

Ubuntu :: Flash Videos Slow - Gets Choppy When In Full Screen

Mar 24, 2010

Running ubuntu 9.10 on an hp pavilion 2000 laptop, with 2.5GB of ram and a dual core (i think). Works at perfect speed with everything, except when I'm tyring to watch a flash video which slows everything down and gets choppy, especially when in full screen. From looking around online I see some people blaming adobe and some people blaming NVidia drivers. Get the impression the problem is a bit of both.

Funny thing is it worked a lot better with the drivers that installed automatically with the ubuntu install, soon as I put the updated nvidia drivers on it started screwing up. how I go back to those default drivers? Tried unchecking the drivers listed in Hardware Drivers, but when I restarted was stuck in very low resolution, so I'm guessing that's not the same as the drivers used after installing the OS.

Debian :: Game Performance - Impossible To Play - Open But Everything Is So Slow And Choppy

Feb 20, 2011

My last laptop was replaced (I gave it to my step-dad, his laptop broke and I bought myself a new one).

I am running Squeeze (as I was on my other laptop) and everything is fine except for the games. On my other laptop games like OpenArena and Warzone 2100 ran perfectly fine, but on this laptop, they are impossible to play. The game will open, but everything is so slow and choppy that it takes a couple of minutes to even move the cursor to the exit game buttons.

My current laptop is an HP ProBook4525s with the current specs:

AMD Athlon Dual-Core P340 2.2 GHz processor
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 Graphics Card

I'm not sure what other information to put here, I've tried searching how to fix this and most people say to lower the resolution and details for the games but that doesn't work, heck, even Tux Kart is too slow to play!

When I installed squeeze I was informed that I didn't have the rtl8168d-2.fw firmware for my laptop, I'm not sure if that helps here at all (can't seem to find what it is for, the only things that google gives me are very technical with fixes that involve re-compiling the kernel).

Hardware :: High-resolution Video With 2 MB Graphics Card- Play 480p Video ?

Jun 24, 2010

I've been playing around with Damn Small Linux 4.4.10 on my Dell Inspiron 3000 laptop for quite a while now, and this is the first time I've been downright stumped. To make a long story short, I'm trying to play 480p video on a machine with a 233 MHz Pentium processor, 112 MB of ram, and a Neomagic MagicGraph 128XD graphics card (NM2160). Crazy? Maybe, but I don't think so. I'm using MPlayer set to Xv mode with the XFree86 4.3.0 server, and so far, I've been able to get it to play 360p mpegs with minimal stuttering. However, MPlayer crashes with 480p. This is because the 128XD only has 2 MB of memory, which, after the 1024x768x16 screen takes its share, doesn't leave enough room for a 640x480 overlay.

The creators of MPlayer are aware of this limitation, and suggest adding the following line to my XF86Config file: Option "OverlayMem" "829440"

As I understand it, this is supposed to extend the video card's frame buffer into system memory, thus allowing the higher resolution video to play. However, it doesn't work, based on this output from my XFree86 log file: cannot reserve 829440 bytes for overlay...

Some other suspicious-looking lines from the log file:

Fedora :: "online" Videos Super Choppy

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Maverick Compiz Choppy/high Cpu Utilization?

Jul 7, 2011

Been using Maverick on my Dell Studio XPS for many months without issue. About a week or two ago, compiz has been acting funny and using a lot of cpu time, making everything "choppy," especially after resuming from suspend. I've googled and searched the forum, but all the related posts seem to be several years old.I tried selecting the previous kernel but it didn't help. Was there a bad update to compiz or ati graphics?

My info:

> lspci | grep VGA
21:02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Madison [Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series]
> grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf | uniq
Option "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
Driver "fglrx"

Fedora :: Can't Play 10-bit H.264 .mkv Videos

Jul 28, 2011

I am unable to play the aforementioned videos. I know for certain mplayer2 supports the 10-bit encode, but whenever I try to play, only a second of audio plays with no video. Instead of video, I get an "Unsupported PixelFormat 72" error. I updated my FFmpeg libraries to 0.8 after that, however nothing has changed and I still get the error. I am currently running Fedora 15.

Software :: Latest Ubuntu 9.10 Update Made Videos Choppy?

May 5, 2010

I have a ton of .avi files. Ever since my last ubuntu online update, they can't play at full screen even though they played fine last week. I tried reinstalling mplayer. No difference. Same problem with xine.

They freeze for about 1/2 second at at time and chop their way along. Not even viewable. But, they look fine in mini-mode.

I have 4 gb ddr3, a quad core, 2.83 gzh intel and an ati 4850 / 512 mb video card. CPU on gkrellm shows < 10%. I think I still have the proprietary ati drivers because I can still move my applications around the screen instantaneously. I have tried xv, gl and gl2 under mplayer -> prefs -> video. All are the same.

Everything works perfectly if I reboot to xp. Where does one begin to debug this?

Fedora :: Unrar Suddenly Slow / Make It High?

Dec 11, 2009

I've just noticed that unrar is suddenly taking minutes to extract instead of seconds.

I can remember if its recently been updated, but I've uninstalled and reinstalled it and the version is: unrar.x86_64 0:3.7.8-3.fc10

I've found a few Ubuntu posts about it on Google, but in true Ubuntu fashion nobody has any answers!

What's odd is that when I unrar a file from (Nautilus or "unrar x *.rar") it takes say 4mins, then if I do it again it takes 15secs, like as if its caching somewhere.

Fedora Installation :: Can't Find Any Player Or Codec That Will Allow To Play Videos On F9?

Apr 25, 2009

I installed Fedora 10 on a Toshiba Laptop, where I had been successfully running Ubuntu for over a year. The newest iteration of Ubuntu was giving me problems, and the press was saying that Fedora 10 was pretty good, so I tried it.

Fedora 10 froze after any application was loaded. I couldnt correct it. I installed Fedora 9, and am no longer having that problem. However, I cant run any multimedia items on the computer. Particularly videos, including wmv, mpeg, or rm formats. This was not a problem in Ubuntu. I can't find any player or codec that will allow me to play these videos on Fedora 9. Can anyone suggest a solution for this?

Hardware :: Choppy Sound When Play Through ALSA

Mar 1, 2011

I have an old Aureal Vortex 2 (by Diamond Multimedia) installed in my system (C2Q @3.4GHz, P35 motherboard), along with the on-board audio. I'm using my PCI sound card with my headphones and running everything else off of the onboard audio. Since it seems to have better sound, I would use it a lot more, but it skips like crazy whenever I try to play sound through ALSA. It sounds like something is sporadically dropping audio frames. The onboard audio works fine with ALSA.

I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 (2.6.35-25, gcc 4.4.5). I think it worked fine with earlier software, but I can't remember for sure. I've tried mplayer and kaffeine (xine backend). When using mplayer, the experimental openal works perfectly, but the advanced options for kaffeine are pitiful. I'm looking at switching video players (probably xbmc or a frontend for mplayer), but I assume I won't be able to completely avoid ALSA. I've done a quick search on google, but if there was anything useful, it was choked out by decade old discussions on getting the card to work at all.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Web Video Slow And Extremely Choppy

Feb 2, 2011

Streamed videos on various Web sites are slow and choppy for me. The problem seems to be a cross-browser issue, today I did an informal test of various sites I frequently use on both Mozilla Firefox and Chrome. The results of my informal test are below, and as you can see they are mostly the same for both Firefox and Chrome.

Google Chrome-
You tube-- no problems once video loads, but loading is slow
Daily show-- very slow loading, sound ok, video extremely slow, choppy, unwatchable
ESPN--slow to load, sound ok, picture is very slow, choppy
eHOW--slow to load, sound ok, picture is very slow, choppy

Mozilla Firefox
You tube-- no problems but sometimes slow loading
Daily show-- a little slow loading but sound and picture ok
ESPN--sound ok but picture very choppy
eHOW--slow to load, sound ok, picture is very slow, choppy

Other data:
Ubuntu 10.04
Toshiba Satellite A100
432.8 MiB memory;
Intel Celeron (R)M: 1.40 GHz.

Software :: Flash Games Run Fine On First Play But Slow Down With Repeated Play

May 1, 2011

I've had this problem on a few flash games (a couple of EA's sports management games on Facebook, and the Pokemon Dream World.) When I first use them everything's fine, but as I continue coming back to them, they seem to run a little slower each time. Ultimately in the case of the former two it got so bad that they were unusual.

Why is this happening? If they were slow from the start I could understood, but what could be making them go wrong on repeated plays?

I'm on 32 bit Kubuntu Lucid, firefox is my browser, and it's the official flash plugin.

Fedora Networking :: Slow DNS Resolution On Intel 3945ABG (HP 6820s Notebook)?

Dec 3, 2009

I've just installed F12 64bit on my notebook. Everything works great. Only problem I'm having at the mo is my WLAN is slow at DNS resolution. On wired it works fine. I know it's not my access point as it is part if my router and I've rebooted it a few times. My other wireless notebook (Windows 7, Intel 3945ABG) doesn't have the same issue, and this notebook didn't when on Windows 7. I'm using OpenDNS as my forwarders.When I open a URL in Firefox (3.5.5) it opens the site immediately on wired. On wireless it will sit for 3-4 seconds before opening the site saying looking up .................. Once on the site browsing behaves normally.Anyone else having similar issues?

Dec 15, 2010

My screen resolution is only 640x480 after I installed the nVidia driver by authority method of 1-click install.

And then I run nvidia-xconfig,/etc/X11/xorg.conf was built.Restart my PC.

I selected the default mode to run opensuse.My screen was black.

So I select the failsafe mode and remove the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

I try to copy my ubuntu 10.3 /etc/X11/xorg.conf,but I failed,the screen was black when booting default mode.

Now my LCD resolution is so low.

Graphics card:nVidia Geforce 5200

And I can keep the best LCD resolution 1440x900@60Hz in the Windows XP successfully.
