Streaming Videos jerky on CNET, smooth on YOUTUBE

by 98xlt98 / June 16, 2009 11:55 AM PDT

Recently formatted my PC hard drive. Videos on CNET always played smooth before format.

Six year old PC: AMD Anthlon 2000+ processor, 1GB Ram, S3 Pro Savage AGP Graphics Accelerator video chipset, Windows XP Pro OS

Do the CNET cellphone review videos require a different setup to watch than the videos on YOUTUBE?

The CNET videos before the reformat worked smooth, so I am expecting it to work again. Just need another type of solution.

All the drivers, video decoders and players you had before. Many find they forget one. As this was your machine and not mine I can't know the mix of drivers and players you installed.

Again, try to remember your software mix.

This complaint has been heard before as Cnet changes flash versions. It looks like playback on the new flash is more "taxing." So you might have to sniff out what you used before.

I looked at your suggested website on these cards. Would that be a certain solution?

Thanks, Tim

It certainly would help.

While the CNET TV forum is fading you can find that others had issues like yours. Be aware you are asking me about how you had it working before. I can't tell you that.

Here I install the latest drivers, and know onboard play is never a sure thing.
