Problem viewing video online


Standard Member
I'm using 32-bit windows 7. I recently changed from Windows XP where I never had problems viewing anything on youtube, now though the framerate is awful, it never seems to go higher than 5-6 fps, it's not a problem with the buffering because I've loaded whole videos before playing them and it makes no difference.

Playing downloaded videos or the sample videos is fine, the problem only happens when viewing online.

Make sure you have the latest video drivers from the manufacturer and not Windows update. And make sure you have the latest version of Flash installed.

Ignore the manufacturer video drivers they are often way behind what they should be. Get your drivers straight from nvidia or amd depending on what card you have.
