Thread: youtube, myvideo...-videos are jerking

  1. #1

    Question youtube, myvideo...-videos are jerking

    there's a Acer Travelmate 201T with the following specifications:
    CPU: Intel Celeron 600 MHz
    RAM: 512 MB
    VGA: ATI RAGE Mobility M AGP 2x 4MB with 800x600 24-Bit TFT-Display

    and i've installed openSUSE 11.0.
    The graphic setup was automatically and were set to:
    graphic driver: ati (no 3D-acceleration)
    resolution: 800x600 24-Bit (16,7 million colors)

    glxgears runs with 30 fps, but videos on myvideo, youtube are jerking.

    i've recognized that cpu usage is at 95,3 % when watching
    a youtube video. when i zoom out, so that the video is decreased,
    the cpu usage goes down.

    is the cpu to slow? or is there a way to watch youtube-videos
    with this laptop without jerking? (maybe other java-version)

    thanks in advance

    Are these HD videos on YouTube?

    I recall reading recently a criticism of YouTube, in comparison to Vimeo, noting YouTube HD videos tended to be more jerky.

    Still you should check to ensure there is nothing in your system that is slowing this down ... ie disable ipv6, remove beagle.

    You CPU is slow but I've recently read a piece explaining why Vimeo videos are better than most other sites; it is to do with the implementation of H264 on these sites.

    Sorry I can't remember where I read it.

    I saw this article and when I checked it out, the OPPOSITE was true. Didn't bother to follow up since I didn't see much of interest at vimeo.

    On a related note, I think I saw an H264 update come through zypper yesterday.

    There was a bunch of stuff from packman a few days ago, that included x264

    Not sure if it's related but I've had the same kind of problem with the CBBC iPlayer, in "normal" screen size, the video plays just fine but put to full screen and BOOM! Jerks about like crazy.

    I updated my Flash player and Nvidia graphic card drivers and it was worse! it's not the PC as under windows, this plays just fine in F/Screen.

    Any ideas what it could be please?
    Suse 11.0 NV6200 (yes I know, not the best!), P4HT 3GHZ and 1GB ram. Firefox 3.5(.2 I think) and latest flash and NV drivers.

    If it helps, youtube videos play fine in full screen.
    Thanks and sorry to hijack this thread!

    Hmm, I heard that 11.1 broke Nvidia drivers?
    I might find a small 40GB hdd and give it a whirl - as the machine's not the most powerful in the world, would you think it's best for me to stay with KDE3.5 or move to 4.x (2?)

    You could use this live cd: "KDE Four Live" CD

    You may prefer the dvd like me, but if you want kde, I would go with this. To me kde3 is getting depreciated support. And is probably more heavy than kde4

    IMHO that hardware will not smoothly play many HD videos, at least not without using a proprietary graphic driver and vdpau. ... and the only player that I know of that will play using nVidia's vdapu technologoy currently is MPlayer (as xine/vlc are still under development for this).

    The play back of HD movies is an area where Windoze players are signficantly ahead of Linux (in man respects due to superior graphic drivers).
