OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Choppy Video With Intel HD 3000 Graphics?
Aug 19, 2011
I recently installed openSUSE on a new Toshiba and i'm getting very choppy video while watching videos on ....., justin.tv, etc. The video is fine as long as I don't full screen. However, when I try to fullscreen a stream on justin.tv or a ..... video, it instantly becomes choppy and video is extremely delayed in relation to the sound. The sound still continues at it's regular pace, however the video lags behind and is just choppy in general.Also, not sure if this helps, but i'm running an i3 2310M.
I have ubuntu 10.04 on an acer aspire with the Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller. According to glxinfo | grep direct, direct rendering is enabled. I'm trying to watch some anime films in .mkv format. I have tried vlc and the stock ubuntu player. The video is choppy with lag between audio and video. How I can diagnose the problem?
having not experienced the issues with jaunty and intel display cards, i can't say whether this is a real problem or not. from what i can tell, mtrr is not a problem.
on my new dell mini 10v w/ intel 945gme and a fresh install of karmic unr, video playback performance is only so-so.
most videos-style flash video is decent. local h.264 playback from .m4v and .mov containers is flawless. but streaming flash video originating as h.264 is dismally choppy - this includes vimeo and hulu-quality streaming video.
I've been browsing through the forums and tried several things, but I haven't found a solution to my problem yet. I have an Acer Aspire 5520 laptop, with an NVIDIA GeForce 7000 M graphics card. For a year I've been using Ubuntu, and with all the versions I've had, through Gutsy to Lynx, I've always found that 3D graphics are extremely choppy. I wouldn't say they are slow...it's more like they move for a couple of seconds, then stop, then move again, then stop. I didn't really care, because I hardly play games: I had initially noticed it trying to get Warcraft 3 to work on Wine, which obviously is an old game, and it runs perfectly on windows...I thought it was just a problem of Wine. But now I've installed Celestia and Flightgear, and with both of them I have this same problem. Flightgear is the worst, it's basically unusable.
I have done several things based upon what I read in the forums. I removed all the NVIDIA drivers, and manually installed the latest propietary driver 195.36.24. I turned off all my desktop effects. I turned on Sync to Vblank to see what would happen. The desktop itself runs very quickly, even the Desktop cube effect, if I turn it on. Like I said before, the problem seems to be this jerkiness with games, with Celestia, and with flightgear. If I get this working, then I'll actually have Ubuntu working completely perfectly, for the FIRST TIME!
I'm using 9.10 on acer aspire one (not the netbook remix).im using the default messanger client empathy.everything else works fine but when i try to video chat the video chat begins but if the other person even moves a litte or even nods his head then the video becomes so choppy that u cant see anything and then after 5 min comes back to normal for a second or two.i have all the latest updates and gstreamer0.10-ugly-multiverse which is required for video chat b/w empathy and gtalk.
Just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on an old Dell Dimension 8400 with an ATI RV370 Radeon X300 video card and 512MB of Ram. The video seems to go very fast and skips. I followed the Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto but still have the same issue. I have also read many posts but I have trouble understanding some of the responses. Could it be the low amount of RAM?
Just put 11.4, 32 bit on a system with an Intel D865 GLC motherboard and 865G built in graphics controller. While the install went OK it turns out that X is totally hosed. After fighting with things for a while and discovering that Sax2 had disappeared I poked at Google and discovered some other poor folks that have had similar issues with Intel video cards. Based on a suggestion for a doc in OpenSuse.org I edited the file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf
and added the line: Driver "intel" to it - after that things got better. Obviously the install process had not identified the video card correctly. I'm now left with another issue - while the system now identifies the driver and can talk to the monitor correctly, a Samsung S23A350H I can't open a window after X comes up and I login - basically the same issue as the unresolved Bug 673873: [Bug 673873] intel [865G] Windows flash rapidly or don't appear if Desktop Effects are on in KDE and GNOME
The workaround is to turn Desktop Effects off but since X doesn't work I can't figure out how to do that. I can't find the gnome-xgl-switch or a xgl-switch that used to exist to do it on the command line so that's out. Someone said you could drop the empty file "disable-compiz" in the ~/.config/compiz directory and that would do it but in 11.4 that directory doesn't exist. how to disable "Desktop Effects"/XGL/compiz or whatever it is now called on the command line in OpenSuse 11.4 without a gui if that is still possible?
! I'm thinking of buying a corei5-660 on a motherboard with an Intel H55 Express Chipset. Does anyone know if it's fully compatible with OpenSUSE 11.3? I mean video (that comes from the processor, not an off-board PCI), audio (HD Audio), networking (Intel� 82578DC Gigabit), SATA Controller, USB, etc. I've tried to google but didn't find much info so I wonder if anyone is using or knows where I can find more info about it...
I have found this thread on the forums about the H55 chipset: Core i3 Intel Clarkdale graphic controller problem But the problems were facing on 11.2, I don't know about 11.3...
I've installed Suse linux 11.3 (kernel 184.108.40.206-0.5) on my brand new computer HP all in one 5130. Everything worked incredibly well : Wifi, wireless keyboard and mouse, sound, webcam.. There is only one remaining issue : I get a very poor resolution (1280x1024) instead of the 1920x1080 allowed by the screen. The graphic card is an intel chipset (HD graphics) integrated to an intel core i3 CPU. Here is (part of) the X11.org log :

When I play streaming video on hulu or other sites it is choppy. However, the sound is fine. Video files play fine when I download them.I experience this problem in both Firefox and Chrome. I have a 10MB connection on other Linux desktops the streaming video is fine.I imagine it is a flash issue, but I have the latest flash v10.1.The other solution would be a video downloader for streaming video. I have not found one that works on Linux.
I've got a Lenovo T410 with just the onboard intel graphics, with the i7 620m and 10.04 64-bit installed.I've also added the xorg-edgers ppa and installed all the packages from there. When I try to watch a 720p video full-screen in ..... it is unwatchable, just too choppy. I haven't been able to find an answer to this elsewhere. I've tried disabling the hardware acceleration in flash but that does nothing. It seems that the driver in use is i915. Is that the driver that should be used?

I'm running Ubuntu 11.04, have 4GB of Memory, and an AMD Phenom II X4 840 Quad Core processor.When I play Hulu Desktop the video is choppy.Now, the odd thing is that I had this problem before. It's the whole reason I upgraded my processor. When I upgraded I noticed an improvement, but it was still a little choppy. I then went to the Adobe site and got the latest version of Flash, and lo and behold, I could watch Hulu Desktop on HD quality with no problem!
Im running Xubuntu 9.10 on my compaq v2000 laptop. My problem is that the video stream playback is very choppy. I have tried the method found here [url] but when i get to the part where I have to type "echo base....." when i hit enter my terminal replies with "bash: echo: write error: Invalid argument"...How to fix this choppy video streaming playback...
I just upgraded from Karmic to Lucid. I've never had problems with playing video files before, but now that I've upgraded to Lucid, I am, regardless of Compiz and other visual effects being on. What I know of my hardware specs are in my sig. I have "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) [Recommended]" activated (and in fact, one of my reasons for upgrading was the supposedly improved NVIDIA drivers in Lucid). VLC, MPlayer and Totem are all choppy playing .avi's: they play smoothly for several seconds, then start skipping (audio and visual, separately), though VLC does so less violently than the others. Similar problems, though slightly less severe, with watching flash movies in chromium.
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
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.
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.
I switched from XP to Ubuntu a few days ago and I'm having a hard time getting flash to work properly in firefox. I can play videos and music in a non-flash format just fine, but flash videos play without sound and really choppily.
I have a ASRock ION 330 with 512 Mbyte shared graphics memory. I use the 256.44 closed source nvidia drivers and have a Xinerama display consisting of one Asus 1440x900 monitor and one video projector with displaysize of 1280x720. Display: 1440x900 + 1280x720 in Xinerama
I have tried with and without desktop effects enabled, and I have followed the http://tombuntu.com/index.php/2009/0...thout-tearing/ guide to manually set the refresh rate to 60 Hz. The sync to Vblank option is checked, both in CCSM and nvidia-settings under X Server Xvideo Settings and under OpenGL Settings, to no avail.
The files I play are MPEG-2 Transport Stream in 720p. Some are and some are not in Matroska containers. I use SMplayer with vdpau enabled. I've made a comparison of Windows Vista and Ubuntu 10.04 below:[URL].. It's not entirely clear from the video, but the end scroller is choppy on Ubuntu and relatively smooth in Windows Vista.
This setup is to be run in a public cinema, and the chopping and tearing is a complete showstopper. It would be a nice showcase to have Ubuntu in the wild like this, but it can't be used if these issues are not resolved.
I installed Ubuntu 10.10 recently and I love it. Everything works great except for video playing. When I try to play DVD's with VLC or ANY video player, I get horizontal flickering and I can't seem to fix it. I re-downloaded and installed the most recent video drivers from Nvidia and it did not change anything.
My video card:
I don't know what else to do. When I run windows, the videos play smoothly, just fine. But when I play the same DVD's under Ubuntu, it's choppy.
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 vevo.com, cracked.com, and southparkstudios.com. (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.
I have an integrated intel video and latest xserver-xorg-video-intel driver(using only stable repo). Now I wanna watch high-res video. From the bits of info collected from all over internet I understood that I need to:
1.aptitude install libdrm libva.
2.compile or find the .deb mplayer-vaapi and install it.
3.add -vo vaapi -va vaapi to the mplayer command line in gnome-mplayer.
My question : is that correct or did I miss something? Do I have to compile latest libdrm and libva or the ones from the squeeze repo will be good? Do I need kms enabled, i.e. install firmware-linux-nonfree?
I wasn't sure weather to post here or on the minecraft forums.
OS: Ubuntu 11.04 x86 CPU: Intel core i5 sandy bridge 2410M GPU: Intel HD 3000 (Integrated) RAM: 8 gigs ddr3
So I got my new laptop a few days ago,loaded up ubuntu.After starting up minecraft to connect to my server I realised that the fps was going from 50 to 1 and back to 50 again EVERY SECOND so obviously this isn't normal.After a quick google search every one on windows seems to have no problem. There are no results for linux.
Edit: Yes I know why the are you using a x86 os on a computer with 8 gigs of ram? At the time of installation all I had was no internet access and a live cd from LUD with ubuntu on it
Just spent about 4 hours upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 thinking it would fix my graphics problems. Basically I have no 3d acceleration of any kind, is there any way i can load the intel drivers? Because what I'm using now is really crappy.
Can i just change something in my xorg to intel and it will load that driver ? I've tried the "hardware drivers" thing but it does not show anything.
I am running kubuntu 9.10 on a dell inspiron 14 with an intel GM45 graphics card. When I run 3d games like Nexuiz, openarena and tremulous I get really random performance. Sometimes things are totally playable with somewhere between 50-80 fps and other times I get maybe 4 fps and everything takes forever to load. These effects persists between logouts, X restarts and reboots! I get no errors when I run things in console either.I never really play games much but when something doesn't work...
