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.)

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 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 :: 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"

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 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.

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?

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.

Ubuntu :: Can't Go Full Screen On Some Streaming Videos

Jan 24, 2010

I've started to have problems getting some streaming videos to either go full screen or go full screen properly.

On [url] when I want to watch a South Park episode full screen it pops up a little box that says "Error Full Screen Not Allowed" and if I hover my mouse over the video connection icon is says

"current video stream 750 kbps* Max video stream 800kbps Avalible in HDGo to Fullscreen *limited by this computer"

The current avaible bandwith speed averages 2500kbps and I have a 7000kbps connection with Speedboost.

When I use Windows XP I can go to full screen with South Park Videos, only in Ubuntu can I not go full screen.

With Hulu it will go into full screen but not always the porpper way. Sometimes it will go full screen but other times it will go full screen but I have to minimize the browser window and then maximize it again and the video will play full screen but apear to be playing on the desktop as wallpaper. I don't get this problem in XP.

This seems to have just started after the last time I did a recomended automatic secuirity update with updae maager. My Video Card is a ATI Radeon 9000 at 1280x1024 true color.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound On Streaming Videos?

Mar 19, 2010

If I try playing ..... or other streaming video I have no sound. It used to work and then my dumbA$$ tinkered with it and now I have restored Flash, which was working flawlessly, don't know where my head was at but it was dark and smelly.

EDIT: I have Ubuntu 9.10 and my sound card is an nVidia Corporation MCP61 High Definition Audio (rev a2). I tried to follow along with the instructions in the sticky regarding the


Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

but when it gave me the instruction to select my sound card manufacturer from the drop down menu, I never found it.

FWIW, my speaker are on and they play music, system sounds etc, just no sound for streaming video. Pandora works fine etc. Also, this is isolated to Firefox, as it works fine in Opera.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Streaming Videos Only Play Correctly Some Of The Time?

Aug 31, 2010

Over the past week or two I've been noticing that I've been having more and more problems with playing streaming videos. I haven't been able to find anything consistent about when the videos don't play correctly. Theres been videos where I've just had to wait a day or two to see even though I know from other people that theyre working. Sometimes I get nothing, sometimes its just sound and sometimes its just video. It doesn't seem to depend on the websites either, earlier today I was able to get one video on a webpage to play correctly but the other one on that page would only give me sound for a couple of seconds and then stop like it was buffering even though the status bar showed it had loaded the entire video. I don't think its just a firefox problem either because I was having the same problems at the same websites running opera as well.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Capture TRICKY Streaming Videos From The Internet

Mar 6, 2011

There is an internet page that displays streaming videos (TV shows) that are not detected by most Windows and Linux downloading software: Orbit, Replay Media Catcher (Windows) or Video Downloader, Downloadhelper, etc in Linux (ubuntu)

In Windows the only program that I managed to do the job with is "Stream Transport", and got .mp4 files that I could watch later.But I don't have windows anymore, it is corrupted. In ubuntu, however, the many firefox add-ons, stand alone programs that I tested, don't see the video file. In the source of the page I don't understand anything, everything is concealed under javascript text... The video is not saved in the firefox cache.

How can I capture it? Does anybody know how to deal with this kind of well-concealed video files?In theory, it should be possible to record everything that comes into the machine, but how?

P.S. By TRICKY I mean something non-standard (not ....., dailymotion, etc).

OpenSUSE Network :: Firefox Freezes When Streaming Divx Videos?

Mar 13, 2010

I'm having problems with streaming divx videos in Firefox 3.6 on openSUSE 11.2. Every time I try to load a divx video Firefox ends up freezing, ultimately leading to dialog box giving me the option to terminate Firefox. No matter what plugin I try to use it's the same problem. I've tried mplayerplug-in, which shows a gray background with the Mplayer logo where the video should be but it keeps buffering, once I press play it freezes. I tried the vlc browser plugin which doesn't seem to even recognize anything and I tried gecko-mplayer, which didn't even show the logo and buffering. I tired removing Firefox and all the plugins and tried installing them again to no avail.

Ubuntu :: K Menu Too High Resolution

Feb 24, 2010

I'm running Kubuntu 9.1 (KDE 4.4) on an IBM Thinkpad T30. By default K set my resolution to the highest output of my graphics card (ATI Mobility Radeon 7500) which I was able to change via xrandr at command line, however now the K menus and taskbar appear to be set at too high a resolution of their own to properly display. The K menu and taskbar appear pixelated and unreadable. Is there any way to change this or has Kubuntu likely just installed the wrong driver for my card?
