Hello,

 

I need some help please. Video streamed through any of the browsers (Firefox/Chrome/IE) I am using is very choppy and/or lags. I suspect this could be a video card issue as I have made countless attempts to solve this by changing browser settings with no improvements.

 

Something I have noticed that might be useful information is that the CPU usage spikes to 100% anytime a video is loaded in the browser.

 

I am using Windows XP.

 

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

How about some system specs?  If you have an older single core CPU, welcome to the  modern world.

According to the articles it is set up correctly. The system has 960 MB of RAM and the filze size is set to minimum 1440 and max 2880 as recommended in the articles.

 

I experimented by changing the values and the performance while watching videos did not change.

I feel I may have narrowed this down to the flash player and plug in using all the comuter resources. I tried downgrading to 10.3 which was a definite improvement, SD videos are playing much smoother and CPU usage is much lower but HD videos still spike CPU usage and run choppy.
