Have you tried realplayer or winamp or quicktime to see if your problem is media player 10 or some other problem? Try playing some clips with these other players.
I have run out of ideas and forums to check on how to fix this. I have Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 1 with all other relevant OS updates installed from windowsupdate.com. My problem is that with streaming video content online, regardless of source, I encounter a stuttering in the video play. Sound is unaffected. Additionally when wtaching video clips resident on my hard drive, I will encounter the same stuttering, or worse, the video will fade into a green screen, and my PC will slow to a crawl until i manage to close Windows Media Player.
I am unsure what system info would be pertinent, and greatly appreciate any help anyone can give. I have installed no new harware recently, I have just today updated my GeForce FX 5200 Ultra drivers, and the problem still occurs. Thanks for any help at all folks.
