When i try watching videos online on any website like youtube putlocker facebook or w/e i get pixelated video that stutters.
I have this problem a long time now that i have tried to fix in several ways:
  • I tried updating and downgrading Nvidia's drivers.
  • I checked for critical updates on windows.
  • I tried reinstalling adobe flash player
  • I tried different browsers chrome, explorer, firefox, opera( all give the same results, same goes for servers, other domains, same result)
 
I have considered that there might be problem with the internet provider but i have run speed tests and my download speed shows (30mb/s) which is the bandwidth i have
here are a couple of pictures demonstrating the problem:

O'relly you have 240Mbps download ?

Somehow i doubt it, 1Mbps = 125Kb sec.

 

As for the problem hemmm you try using HTML5 only ? use firefox for that and uninstall flash player or disabled it.

Youtube is full HTML5 btw.

yes that is true i asked on both forums to get the maximum range of people to solve this, i am experiencing it for months and really am tired of it, so i decided to make an end for this since its ruining the fun of using my pc.

I didn't say uninstall + reinstall i said permanently uninstall and use HTML5 only, VLC player as well can watch YouTube vids, you could try that as well.

 

 

(30mb/s)

Could mean Mbps or megabytes per sec.

I am pretty sure mbps is just an acronym for megabytes per sec, and 30 megabytes per second is a reasonable download speed / bandwidth.

 

any relating to the topic you said youtube using only html5 today, so disabling flash will not help

and can you please enlighten me on how to use vlc on the web browser?

Mbps means megabits per second, MBps stands for megabytes per second.

Your forgetting about upper case and lower case topic, that changes what your trying to say and why i was confused :tophat:

 

Youtube uses both HTML5 and flash player and will often default last i tested it to flash player if its installed, if its not then it runs in HTML5 mode and everything works in HTML5 on you tube in any case with firefox that is, just  trying to see if its flash player that's the problem.

my self i have 7Mbps and you don't even need that for watching vids.

 

VLC player is a open source media player, i know their some plugins for it when it comes to browsers but most places don't seem to use em anyways. By trying VLC i mean install it and go to a place like youtube and enter in the HTTP link in to VLC in the right way and you should be able to watch the vid if your firewall rules are setup for it and all, pain doing it this way but its just to see if the playback problem is still their on something that has nothing to do with a web browser.

 

As well when watching other media types in other players do you have the problem too ?

 

Ps: might be a lame question but is Vsink enabled ?
