DivX and IE6

Postby earthlink on Sun Jul 27, 2003 7:04 am

I am running Win2000. Whenever I have a DivX movie playing and I try to open up IE6, when I scroll up or down the page in IE, the divx movie will skip and the sound kind of sounds like it is slightly skipping as well. Any ideas as to why it is doing that? I used to have WinXP on a different machine and it never used to do that. I do have the latest version of Divx but I use Windows Media Player 9 to play the movies.

Probably too much for your computer or its a poorly encoded file.

But I have an AMD 2500, 512 RAM, 64 MB Video Card Geforce4 MX440 8XAGP. It's way better than my other comp that could run them easily without doing that.

Don't know. Could be a compatibility issue with Win2K. Have you installed SP4? Do you have the latest drivers for your graphics card?

Could also be your graphics card.

Might be temp related as well.

What's your sound card?

I have a lot of similar problems with SoundBlaster16 in WinXP, and I know that SB128 and Live have those problems in certain computers.

Try disabling the sound card in the device manager (just disabling not uninstalling).

He can't.
But if everything goes well after that, then he might be suffering the same problems as me.
It's a matter of discarding options.

earthlink,

I would suspect some undesired interaction between Win2000, IE 6, and WMP 9.

I would suggest trying the freeware BSPlayer instead of the Windows Media Player. BSPlayer has great flexibility as a DivX (and general) file player and uses resources efficiently with low overhead. I have used it for a couple of years, and prefer it to other file players.

I was wrong.
My DivX videos also slow down when I browse web pages. It's the same with sound enabled or disabled (sound disabled is what I used to check that my SB16 killed the performance of the games in XP/2K, but it doesn't apply here I think).
You would notice poor sound quality when CPU is stressed too, if you had the same problems as me.
