Hi there, PC is:
Windows XP Professional 2002: SP 3
Intel Core 2 CPU
6600 @ 2.40GHz, 2.40 GHz
3.25 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 210 (Driver Version 306.23)
My problem is with audio, or decoding it or something?
Flash streaming like YouTube, etc, works fine. Listening to .MP3 works fine through Winamp.
But when trying to run a video file through VLC, the video works great, but the audio is very choppy and garbled, like it would be when it's not been encoded properly, you can't make anything out the way it should sound at all.
I have tried .AVI & .MP4 and a few other file types all with the same result.
This also occurs in many cutscenes in games if they are pre-made video files that are then loaded and not 'in-engine' footage, and also seems to be crashing some games every ten minutes or so.
Some games (Fallout 3, Oblivion, etc) have also been crashing and the music cannot play, it tries to but stutters and repeats the start of the song while the rest of the game continues working fine. If I disable music, the games work as normal again for a while before crashing, usually when particular sounds play.
I have tried installing the K-Lite codec pack, but it does not seem to be used by the programs which are crashing or having issues, as though something else is taking priority and not working properly?
Thanks in advance for any ideas, I am not very knowledgeable about audio at all
Realtek seems to be running okay, and displays this info:
