Ubuntu :: Choppy Video And Software Center Freezes

Dec 21, 2010

After going back to Windows 7, I attempted linux again, but this time I was greeted with some nasty bugs. And I have tried reinstalling multiple times, I can't find whats causing this. Video performance is choppy and just terrible. DVD's keep dropping almost 60% of their frames. Ubuntu Software Center keeps freezing near the end of an install (though does seem to actually finish), and then maxes out CPU and causes my laptop to heat up a lot..

Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit
AMD Athlon II 2GHz Dual Core
4GB RAM
ATI Radeon (I don't know off hand which model)

I have tried open source drivers and FGLRX (which holy crap ATI fixed the tearing I see!), but nothing fixes it. Other distros are not having these issues.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Choppy Skipping Video On All Video On 10.10?

Nov 22, 2010

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?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Ppc G4-All Video Is Choppy / Pixilated?

Jun 19, 2010

I'm generally non-techy, but was able to do the install of Lucid on my iBookg4 ppc, and use terminal to cut/paste the fix for my airport extreme card off the ubuntu wiki. my current vexing problem is this: ALL video playback (mp4, .mov, swirly display thing when musicplayer is going, etc) is choppy looking. not pixilated, but kind of messily choppy & grated looking. I've searched all the forums & wikis ('natch) and cant find anything that describes this exact problem. is there a fix that dosen't involve confusing command line judo? something that wont require too much hand-holding? (I am def one of, "the rest of us" that ubuntu is for...)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Streaming Video Is Choppy

Aug 8, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HD Video On Core I7 Is Choppy?

Feb 14, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Choppy Flash Video

Jul 11, 2011

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!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Choppy After Upgrade To Lucid

Jun 14, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Flash Video Playback Choppy And Slow

Oct 1, 2010

Specs:
AMD Quad Core
8GB RAM
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 :: Web Video Slow And Extremely Choppy

Feb 2, 2011

Streamed videos on various Web sites are slow and choppy for me.

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.

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.

Fedora :: Video Is Choppy And The Audio Sync Is Off?

May 18, 2009

I've been trying to use cheese to record greeting from my kids to grand parents etc. But every time I record a video, the video is choppy and the audio sync is off. I've used the one in the (F11) repos and built it from source. It behaves the same using other distros as well. Is this par for the course with cheese, or is it my hardware?[URL]... Any other applications/methods to record audio & video while providing a 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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Tearing And Choppy Video W/ ION 330 Vdpau In Xinerama

Aug 24, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Choppy Video Quality - Horizontal Flickering

Jan 16, 2011

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:

Code:

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.

Software :: Ubuntu Default Media Player - Video Extremely Choppy

Jul 11, 2011

i just installed ubuntu, latest version. i accepted the default media player. when i had windows installed, i was able to play videos at any level without any problems. the video player played very smooth whether it was in ..... or any other site. i took windows off, installed ubuntu, and now, the video is extremely choppy. the audio is fine, but the video is like it is playing 1 frame a second, instead of 30 frames a second. is there a better media player than the default? is there a setting i can adjust, like a buffer or something? i think the default is rhythmbox music player? for the video.

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Karmic UNR & Intel 945GME Video Performance - Dismally Choppy

Jan 10, 2010

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.

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 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.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Mkv In Smplayer Freezes Video While Scrolling - In Vlc No Video At All

Apr 1, 2011

OpenSUSE 11.1, 64 bit, 2 cores, intel graphics, 4 GB of RAM:_no_ problems

OpenSUSE 11.4, 64 bit, 4 cores, nvidia graphics, 16 GB of RAM:

Problem is very similar to: Problems playing mkv HD films in opensuse but not windows but with enough differences that I start a new thread:

* playback in VLC does not work -- there is only sound

* playback in SMplayer works, however -- when I scroll forward, the video freezes and sound continues, to unfreeze video I have scroll a tiny bit backward

I tried changing the video ouput driver (in SMplayer) from xv to xv/noveu-nvidia, it didn't help. Please note, that I use the same settings (initially) as before in OS11.1.

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

Jul 28, 2011

Environmentopensuse: 11.4 x86_64 new install
kernel: 2.6.37.6.0-0.5-desktop
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 2.6.31.5-0.1, 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.

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Freezes In Totem?

Apr 18, 2010

Whenever I'm playing a video in Totem, if I use the navigation bar thing to go to a different time in the video, the video output freezes. Audio continues, but video stops. If I pause the video first, then use the navigation thing, then click play again, it works fine. Same happens for music; the visualizer freezes if I drag the navigation thing.

Edit: If I put it on repeat, when the video or music repeats the video output freezes also.
