Anyone know the process which video playback off the internet goes through to get to your screen?

 

Is there more then one way to achieve video playback? Such as the video card handling the whole process?

 

What is consider to be minimum requirements for the speed of your hardware for smooth video playback off the internet? That is, with nothing else running.

So, are you saying, that I need a specific player or software installed for each site to play the video at it's optimum? Is there a all-in-one solution? And how do I know what I need, does the site I'm at list requirements?

No, you can start by tuning up your machine a bit, then update all programs with patch my pc...

 

Ccleaner To disable Useless Startups.

 

Go ahead and install ccleaner Now that you have the program installed go ahead and run the cleaner function.

CCleaner - Free Download - Piriform

Now that you have cleaned out some temp files, lets go ahead and disable all of the items starting up with your machine except your antivirus. To do this you will need to click on tools then start up then under the Windows Tab select each item then disable. Also under the scheduled task tab, you are safe to disable all task. Only disable items under the windows tab and scheduled task tab!

Now that you have disabled those un-needed start ups lets go into the settings, we will have Ccleaner run when your machine boots, so that you will never have to worry about cleaning temp files again.

To do this:

 

  • Hit options.
  • Settings.
  • Place a tick to run Ccleaner when the computer starts.

Now go to the advanced tab, and select close program after cleaning, now run the cleaner again this will close Ccleaner.

Reboot the machine after.

There are a dozen different things that affect any machines performance.  The number of running processes, whether there are any patches needed for video drivers,  stereo or 5.1 audio, screen resolution, display element response times and the NIC card. That's just the PC, modems, (cable, DSL or dish) and routers (CAT5 or WIFI) determine downlink speeds of the stream coming to the PC.

Yes, I have been though eleven dozen. I looked far and wide on the internet, yet, I have not found a definitive breakdown of how and why a internet video performs.

 

The obvious ones are:

1) The speed at which it gets to your computer. That is determined by the speed your paying for and getting, the site(s) that is relaying the content and the content provider itself.

2) The video card and software controlling it.

 

All the in between stuff is what I'm not sure about. CPU, RAM, HD, MB, OS and software that is needed

I have seen some low end desktops that could handle 1920 by 1080, HDMI output, 500GB hard drive, 4 GB memory and do Netflix and xfinity  with no trouble.  I have found that 3 MBS downlink is not fast enough and 5 MBS just makes it.  That's an Intel i3 and onboard audio (5.1) and 1920 X 1080 video onboard.  $350. from Lenovo.  They have a matching laptop but it doesn't have the same resolution,  max at 1440 X 900 and no HDMI output but has a 17 inch display.  Same price.  Many units like that will come with the latest flavor WIN ?  in a bundle.
