OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Getting Choppy Playback In Flash - 32bit

Jul 24, 2010

I'm getting choppy playback in flash, 32bit. It's fine until I go fullscreen. Anyone have any ideas? I was thinking of installing the 64bit version of opensuse. My experience of Flash at 64 bit on Ubuntu was very stable and choppy free. I'm running Core 2 Duo Processor with and ATI Radeon and 2 gig of ram.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - How To Fix Choppy DVD Playback

Jan 3, 2011

When I used to have the unspoken OS that starts with a w and rhymes with schmindows installed, DVDs played very nicely on my computer. Now, I installed Ubuntu 10.10 and they don't play so nicely. First, they didn't play at all. Then, I followed some instructions and installed various things like mediabuntu and some restricted drivers.

I tried to play the DVD again with Movie Player, and it played (kind of) but it was very choppy and it still is. Then, I installed VLC. It plays fairly well in VLC; sometimes it plays a little bit better than other. However, often times the quality is very liney when the characters move is when it is most noticeable.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Sound With New Sound Card - Web Browser Is Unable To Play Any Sound

Mar 24, 2010

After installing an external sound card, Im having some weird issues. The cards chipset is fully supported by suse, (CM8738) so I dont think thats the problem. Besides, I'm getting sound, but not in some applications. The system's sounds work just fine (login, logout themes) amarok plays without any problems, kaffeine, mplayer they all work flawlessly, in fact I can see the difference in quality between the onboard sound and my new card. However, no web browser is able to play any sound at all, firefox, opera or chrome, nothing,zip. Plus, vlc cant reproduce sound either, nor can smplayer.

I've tried switching channels on and off(muting)in kmixer and in alsamixer, on the console, with no results. I disabled the onboard audio on the bios before installing the new card, however my ati video card has integrated sound, which I cant disable.... I used to get this exact same problem randomly with the onboard sound, but I just had to go to kmixer and turn up the "pcm" channel volume, which was set to 0, and I had sound again on my browser. However this card's pcm channel is at max and turning it up or down affects the whole systems volume, not just the browser's. Is it better to just reinstall the sound system, if so how could I do that.

Ubuntu :: Flash Video Playback Choppy And Slow

Oct 1, 2010

AMD Quad Core
HD3200 ATI Graphics (onboard)
1920*1080 resolution via VGA.

Whenever I play flash video or a video in VLC the pictures seems "choppy" and slow as if it was laggy. What could be causing this? I am guessing its a video issue? Maybe something todo with refresh rates and stuff like that.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Choppy (flickers) On Playback?

Feb 10, 2011

I just upgraded to Ubuntu Maverick v 10.10 and loving it. However, I have encountered a problem with playing any type of video whether it be Xvid, AVI, h264, MKV or AAC. I have tried many players from smplayer, mplayer, kmplayer, vlc, etc. but I am still having the problems. I have read some posts on here and I've disabled compiz, tried the X11 tweak and updated my Nvidia drivers. I don't know if I am missing some type of codec or restricted plugin because I have ample space and resources are readily available while playing the video.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Very Choppy Video Playback With Stutter (NVidia)

Jan 21, 2010

currently using nvidia accelerated graphics driver (version 185) and a nvidia 8800gt. cpu is an intel c2d e6600, so it's quite a fast pc. video playback is extremely choppy to the point of being unwatchable. it affects all applications that i have tried, such as vlc, movie player and flash videos in mozilla firefox. videos on videos seem slow but playable, but when i try to watch them in full screen there's a drop to about 5fps. cpu usage reaches 100%. scrolling is also slow on large webpages. disabling compiz makes no visible difference.

before i installed nvidia's driver, videos played perfectly. videos play fine in windows xp. it seems as if nvidia's driver is using the cpu to 'process' videos, instead of the graphics card. other than that, ubuntu 9.10 is lightning fast... so what's going on here? i have resolved one issue, that is flash player's performance in firefox. followed instructions [here] and videos is now smooth in full screen. other videos, however, are still stuttering and spiking cpu usage. this must be a widespread issue, but the lack of information on the web shows otherwise.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Choppy Sound When Get System Sounds (notifications) To Work

Mar 22, 2010

My sound was working fine except I couldn't get system sounds (notifications) to work. So I decided to install pulseaudio to see if it would fix it. Now I get system sounds and my other sounds, but now in most things (such as firefox and warcraft 3) the sound is choppy. I've tried SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE and a couple other things I've googled but it's not working for me. I'd like to be able to fix it or at least go back to the way it was.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Choppy Sound In Gnome - Installing Xine Backend ?

Jul 23, 2011

In Gnome and XFCE I always have a choppy music playback. The music is never played smoothly. There is always hesitations in the playback, as if the CPU is running on 100% and cannot cope with the system load.

One of the reasons for that is (in my case) Pulseaudio.

Another reason is Gstreamer. When I choose Gstreamer as backend in KDE, I get the same choppy musicplayback as in Gnome or XFCE. With Xine as backend in KDE, everything is fine. So my conclusion is: with Xine, the sound would be fine in Gnome too.

So, I wonder if it is possible to use Xine as backend in Gnome too. Does anyone have experience with running Xine in Gnome and/or XFCE? What do I need to do to set Gnome/XFCE, so that it uses Xine instead of Gstreamer?

Or is there maybe a special setting, I have to apply? In gstreamer-properties I have tried all possible settings, but this didnīt change anything to the quality of sound.

My experience is also: this choppy sound is hardware-independend. It doesnīt matter which hardware I use, the sound is choppy. It is also distro-independend. The sound is choppy in openSUSE (gnome and in KDE with applied Gstreamer backend), in Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Fedora with Gnome, Linux Mint with Gnome.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Choppy Playback Of Streaming Flash Video On Lenovo Ideapad S10-2

Oct 26, 2010

when i play streaming video in any browser (tried firefox, chrome, opera, and midori), the playback is severely and unwatchably choppy. sometimes it'll be ok for a few seconds and then devolve into choppiness, but usually it's just choppy right off the bat. the audio is just fine, by the way.the odd thing is, videos works just fine, but only if i stick to 360p. anything higher yields the same results. downloaded videos work just fine as well. i've noticed this on,, and (my age is showing! ) i just tested it on an html5 video from the html5 site and that worked just fine, as well, so i think this is a flash-specific problem.

right now i'm using xubuntu maverick, but i've used both lucid and maverick of xubuntu and ubuntu netbook remix (all 32-bit). i'm using a lenovo ideapad s10-2 (a netbook), and the video card is intel gma 950. i can get more specific if necessary. i've tried both the open source and non-free versions of flash (latest versions, of course) with no difference. i even tried uninstalling flash and using chrome's built-in flash plugin, also with no difference.

Man...I'm asking so many questions here I'm starting to get ashamed of myself

Fedora :: "choppy" H.264 / AVC Video Playback In Totem

Jan 23, 2011

When I play H.264 / AVC videos from my new camera in totem, the sound plays fine but the video looks like a slide show. I also tried it in xine, the video plays better, but the audio does not play. (the video seems to play in slow motion. the files are saved as *.mp4, and are the same resolution as the *.mp4 files from my old camera which play fine in totem. When I look at the properties of the files, the new ones say that the codec is H.264 / AVC and the ones from my old camera say that the codec is MPEG-4 video. the frame rate is the same for both files.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound In Movies And Browser

Sep 22, 2010

Can anybody give me a clue why there is no sound when I watch videos via any player or browser?, I've installed "restricted formats codecs", (well I did it many times for GNOME desktop of 11.3 SUSE and it was ok), now when I've installed KDE and downloaded these codecs, there is no sound in any video media I play. Audio card seems to be working and configured just fine, then it should be codecs, but what else can I install instead?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 X86-64 New Install - "jerky Mouse - Choppy - Randomly Freezes Erratic"

Jul 28, 2011

Environmentopensuse: 11.4 x86_64 new install
qemu-kvm install
input devices: PS/2 Mouse, EvTouch USB Graphics Tablet

If I just take the mouse and scroll left and right over the desktop, the mouse is "jerky, choppy, randomly freezes, erratic". It occurs all the time. Trying to be more focused and select an object is challenging.

/var/log/messages shows: kernel psmouse.c Explorer mouse at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 1 bytes away Don't know if it is related, but in "Personal Settings" -> "Input Devices" -"Touchpad", there is a "Warning: Touch pad configuration is not supported on this system. ..." I have another virtual machine with the exact same setup running openSUSE 11.2 x86-64, kernel, and the mouse is not "jerky", but I have no wheel support. Comparing logs and config they look alike. I turned off all desktop effects.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Choppy Sound In 10.04 / Resolve This?

May 15, 2010

i'm having choppy sound in 10.04. i didn't have it in 9.10 and i don't know enough about how it works to try to fix it.

here are some things i have noticed, however.

1. the choppy sound is present in a 64bit and 32bit install. at first i thought it may just be a 64bit issue so i reinstalled to 32bit and it is still present.

2. it does not seem to matter what media type i am playing. i notice it most with videos from videos and music from pandora.

3. it seems to occur more often at intense moments of music. i'm not really sure how to describe it, but it is typically the climax of a song where it is a little louder and more intense.

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 :: Choppy Sound In 10.04 Wireless Headset / Sort It?

Aug 16, 2010

Since I upgraded to 10.04 (from 9.10) I've been running into trouble with my wireless headset. Ever since the upgrade, I've had issues with the audio being very choppy (it sounds kind of like static) through the headset while listening to anything from an mp3 to a ..... video.

The two things I've noticed about it are that it is ONLY when using the headset, and the audio is fine running through the built in speakers. The other thing is that it only seems to happen when there is something going on on screen (for example, with a ..... video, scrolling up and down a page makes it much worse, as does having the video embedded in another page, while minimizing the page eliminates problem; or while listening to music, while the visualizer is running, it has problems, but when I get rid of it, it's fine.)

I have a somewhat old Dell Inspiron 6400 with 2 GB ram and 2 Intel core 2 T7400s, each at 2.16 GHz if that helps. I'm not sure how to check what sound card I have (still fairly new to linux).
