Windows XP SP3. I've had this laptop for over 6 years, and it's been reformatted a few times and this problem has never occurred before. The last reformat was months ago.

This is for videos already saved on my computer, no streaming involved.

You know how when you start a video file, it will begin to play and the frames will proceed smoothly? Now when I start a video it will begin for a fraction of a second, then pause for a fraction of a second, resume for another fraction, pause again for a fraction, then resume as normal. If I should seek, it will pause for a fraction of a second at the new seek time, then resume as normal. This happens on BSPlayer, WMP, and VLC (all the video playback programs I have). File format has no effect.

Also, it happens when the file loops and begins back at the start. I described 2 instances that always happen: at the start and when seeking. Whenever it starts, either when I first double click that video file, or when it reaches the end and does it's loop back at the start, it does the same start pause start pause resume normally.

I just ran antivirus, it found nothing. I ran some registry cleaners, didn't help. I uninstalled and reinstalled my video driver, nothing. Just defragged my harddrive, no difference.

EDIT: Just did some testing and apparently the animated gif file format is unaffected.

I wish I could show you a video, but Hypercam won't record from other video programs.

Brief buffering is normal. The only thing you could try is allow the video clip to load completely before playing it. Other than that, there are too many variables to pinpoint a specific reason for buffering.

This is for videos already saved on my computer, no streaming involved. Also, it happens across all video playback programs. What could cause this problem to happen on all of them?

Oh and you say it's normal, well this particular problem has never happened before.

And finally, it happens when the file loops and begins back at the start. I described 2 instances that always happen: at the start and when seeking. Whenever it starts, either when I first double click that video file, or when it reaches the end and does it's loop back at the start, it does the same start pause start pause resume normally.
