I have a Toshiba Satellite 2.7 Celeron with 768 MB RAM (64 shared with the video). I recently reinstalled XP Home/Service Pack 2 think maybe it would help me.

After going to YouTube (with IE and Firefox) and downloading the latest Flash, youtube videos either play fine for a few seconds then freeze and start again or sometimes it just plays with about a second lag. I download DiVx and watched a Youtube video in higher quality and it worked perfectly.

I don't understand...if my laptop can play higher quality vid with no problem, why can't it play FlashPlayer vids? I have been Googling for hours looking for an answer. Anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks.

It looks like it might be a Youtube issue. You might want to try adjusting Hardware Acceleration in Flash settings. But I have a feeling it's just Youtube being Youtube. Try another viral video site like Daily Motion and see how it goes there.

I have been playing around with my laptop and the issue appears to be some type of software conflict. When i have Divx software on my laptop, then Flash does not work properly. When i deleted all divx i was able to watch Flash videos again without hardly any stuttering and it never freezed.

I would however like to have the divx software so i can watch divx videos. So, i am going to format and reinstall XP again and try to install all my software in a certain order, hopefully all the different codecs and software will work properly then.

I have been reading more and it is said if you install the older version of divx first and then upgrade to the newest version, then things work okay. Well, guess i'll find out soon enough.

I decided to just spend 45 minutes reinstalling, instead of what seems alot longer uninstalling programs.
