Cant watch Videos without it rewinding itself.

more options

My problem is that when I'm watching Videos in the web it goes about 15 seconds in to the video and then the video screen freezes but the audio continues BUT as a replay of about 10 back in the video. When these 10 seconds have passed the video continues along with the synced audio. After about a minute or two It happens again. 10 seconds video freeze and 10 seconds of audio replay. Which is really REALLY annoying. This only happens with my Mozilla Firefox browser, I've uninsulated it and installed it three times and I'm using Windows 8. (I know it sucks). I also got the latest version of Adobe Flash Player V11.

Thanks.

Which security software (firewall, anti-virus) do you have?

Make sure that you allow the plugin-container process in the firewall and that your anti-virus isn't causing this problem by scanning the media files.


Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

You can check for problems with current Flash plugin versions and try these:

  • disable a possible RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin extension for Firefox and update the RealPlayer if installed
  • disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)
  • disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin

Some problems with Flash video playback can be resolved by disabling hardware acceleration in your Flash Player settings. (See this article for more information on using the Flash plugin in Firefox).

To disable hardware acceleration in Flash Player:

  1. Go to this Adobe Flash Player Help page.
  2. Right-click on the Flash Player logo on that page.
  3. Click on Settings in the context menu. The Adobe Flash Player Settings screen will open.
  4. Click on the icon at the bottom-left of the Adobe Flash Player Settings window to open the Display panel.

  5. Remove the check mark from Enable hardware acceleration.
  6. Click Close to close the Adobe Flash Player Settings Window.
  7. Restart Firefox.

This Flash Player Help - Display Settings page has more information on Flash Player hardware acceleration, if you're interested.

Does this solve the problem? Let us know.

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration. Since this feature was added to Firefox, it has gradually improved, but there still are a few glitches.

You might need to restart Firefox in order for this to take effect, so save all work first (e.g., mail you are composing, online documents you're editing, etc.).

Then perform these steps:

  • Click the orange Firefox button at the top left, then select the "Options" button, or, if there is no Firefox button at the top, go to Tools > Options.
  • In the Firefox options window click the Advanced tab, then select "General".
  • In the settings list, you should find the Use hardware acceleration when available checkbox. Uncheck this checkbox.
  • Now, restart Firefox and see if the problems persist.

Additionally, please check for updates for your graphics driver by following the steps mentioned in the following Knowledge base articles:

Alright I tested the first solution. It helped me abit but it also got me another problem. The video takes a while untill it playes again if i decide that i want to rewatch what i just saw. Also the audio is not synced with the video. The audio is about 0.5 seconds behind.

After trying solution 2. I didnt notice any audio deley. So I guess these 2 options together worked well.

Thanks a lot ComputerWhiz & cor-el!!
