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.
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...
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.

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.
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 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?
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!
I'm running an athlon II X2 on a Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H motherboard Graphics are running on the Radeon HD 4200 on the motherboard. System has 2 GB of RAM. I recently did a clean install of Ubuntu 9.10. I previously had 9.04 installed and flash video ran completely smoothly, and the CPUs wouldn't even come out of 800 MHz power save mode.
Since upgrading to 9.10, flash runs choppy and the CPUs max out every time there is a lot of movement on full screen videos. On 9.04 and 9.10 I was running the ATI proprietary FGLRX hardware drivers. I've tried re-installing the ATI drivers and flash. I've also disabled compiz desktop effects.
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.
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.
I am running a 32bit Ubuntu 9.10 on a netbook with AMD64 architecture. I have read about a 64bit Flash alpha from Adobe and other work arounds to get flash running on 64bit linux, but is there anyway to get flash to work on an AMD64 system running 32bit Ubuntu 9.10?
I'm running 64-bit Karmic with the native 64-bit Flash plugin (not the 32-bit plugin with a wrapper).Before now, I had to pick between streaming music on Gnome or streaming music from Flash. In other words, if I was listening to music in Rhythmbox or Totem, I'd have to close all those sources before playing a flash video or else the sound wouldn't work. Likewise, if I was playing a flash video and wanted to listen to music in Rhythmbox or Totem, I'd have to close Firefox from the system monitor.
So I installed the PulseAudio Device Chooser, following all the instructions in this thread. Now I can't get any sound from Flash at all, but I can play as many Rhythmbox and Totem streams as I want at the same time. In the "Playback" tab of the PulseAudio Volume Control, Flash is never acknowledged as a playback stream.
This was working a few days ago - so I'm thinking an update might be the culrpit.Ubuntu 10.10 on AMD 64. ATI RV710 video card.Flash & Totem now playback at double speed. MP3 audio and Flash Videos both exhibit the same behavior. Tried a plain old reboot - no change. Looking at the diff between dynamic libaries of libflashplayer and totem shows about 45 shared libraries but that doesn't really narrow it down much..
i have reinstalled my mint 7 and whenever i play downloaded/saved videos from ....., i get a choppy/scratchy audio & video in playback. this was not the case before i reinstalled. videos videos played directly and other dvds played from cdrom and mp3s played from hd are however working fine.
A fresh install of 11.3 64 KDE 4.4 some packman stuff installed. Some broken as no current 64 bit libs or funky packman situation currently. CD audio is choppy. No mp3 playback though support is installed. [URL]....
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.
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.
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.
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.
Acer 5742 laptop with Intel HD Graphics.In Xubuntu 10.10 whenever I have display compositing enabled, flash becomes slightly (but noticably and annoyingly) choppy. With hardware acceleration enabled, there's a horizontal line about an inch from the bottom of the screen that is fairly distorted, and with hardware acceleration disabled, it affects the whole screen but to a lesser degree.
can't get no playback through banshee or rthymbox rthymbox does nothing won't even find media banshee has libary full but won't play dosn't even give me and error or ask for codecs like it did before. every thing worked sweet a month ago but the players kept losing my songs but they never moved. iv've reinstalled both still no joy this is what i have on my system
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.
I'm having an issue with playback in Amarok 2.3 on openSUSE 11.3. When using xine, Amarok will playback songs very quickly, probably something like 3X-4X faster than it should be. There is also no audio output when it does this. Using gstreamer it plays back at normal speed, but also without audio output. I've done some searching for this problem, but haven't found anything helpful. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Below I'm listing all the multimedia/codec packages that I have installed.
I'm looking to find a way to ensure that what I'm hearing from my computer is Bit Perfect, and can also play 24/96khz files.
Audio on Linux has always confused me, so I'm not entirely sure where to start. So if we were to say I'd be starting from a fresh install of OpenSUSE 11.3, where would I have to go to achieve my goal with an M-Audio Audiophile 24/96 Sound Card (ICE1712 Chipset)?
I installed opensuse 11.3 KDE for the first time last week. Amarok works fine with mp3 files. Also I installed VLC and kaffiene with all available codecs but unfortunately I have no sound in my avi movies. I can not know what is the reason although it was working fine in windows.
