Video playback skips like crazy!
Asked Oct 24, 2008, 08:08 AM
I recently recovered my computer from some issues that seemed to be related to missing or defective display drivers. Well, for the most part my computer seems to be working well now. There's just one thing, and I'm at a total loss as to what's causing it or how to fix it.
The video playback skips like crazy! :P Here's what happens: I'll try to play a movie, and while the image is perfectly clear, it will skip and jolt and get stuck on single frames the whole way through. However, the audio is still totally normal.
My operating system is Windows XP on a Toshiba Satellite laptop. The video player I use 99% of the time is Media Player Classic. I have also tried playing the videos on Windows Media Player, but the same thing happens. I also have QuickTime and Winamp (but I have never understood what the benefits to using those would be). Everything was working normally before the driver issues last week. I don't know if it would help any, but you can find more details regarding the previous and maybe related issues I just recovered from by looking at the questions I posted last week in the threads. Please help! :P
