I use this computer for light surfing on the web, watching videos and checking my facebook account.
A month or two ago, I did a clean install of XP. I don't know how many days or weeks later, but videos started to play out of sync with audio. The audio will play fine, but the video seems like it's trying to catch up. Even if I press pause for a couple of minutes, it's the same way. After I press pause, the video will keep moving until it catches up with where it's supposed to be?
Before this happened, I would watch videos online. I watched the last season of the Walking Dead online and they all played perfectly fine. Last night I tried to catch up on a tv show, and it was just dragging so I couldn't do it!
If I am on tumblr or facebook and friend posts a video, they play the same way. Choppy and slow.
Netflix videos play GREAT, I can skip ahead without having to let it load or anything.
Also you tube videos on the you tube website play fine.
I just don't know why netflix videos play fine, but others don't?
I use ccleaner on a regular bases. I ran auslogics disk defrag last night. I ran hitman pro the other day and I am about to run malwarebytes for the first time since I did a clean instal. I had panda cloud av, but I got rid of that yesterday thinking that may be the problem, so now I'm on the hunt for a light av since my computer is old and a tad slow.
The browsers I use are firefox and chrome and they both give the same choppy videos.
Also pc is set to best performance.
