    Win7/ff 13, 6mb dsl, dual core somthing like 2gb ram (don't remember) video playback is choppy, sound cuts out, just a pain to watch. Not buffering, just choppy. YT, pron, whatever. Ideas?

    More memory. I had issues with YouTube all the DAMNED time with my old rig, dual core 2ghz, 2gig ram. My new machine is a 6core with 8gig ram and I've had no video issues.

    One workaround is Firefox + video download helper. Sure you have to save videos, but you can save at various qualities, and vlc plays them all.

    Oh and vdh has support for a ton of porn sites.

    I got a fuckin' VW bug, you got a Carrera gt3. I'll fuck with it, see what I can do. Any way to help rendering?

    Your D/L speeds may be a bit pokey, especially for 720/1080 video. Also, it might* help to start dumping old/unused applications, and space eating vids.

    As a Top Gear (UK) fan, please permit me a slight change in your comparison...Unless, of course, you're a huge Hamster fan.

    Not to nit pick, my good sir, I thought the flat 4/ flat 6 comparison would be more accurate. Apples to apples, if you will.
    [tangent] rich guy here has a 930, left it outside the store with the lights on, I go in and say "somebody left their lights on, red VW outside..." no sense of humor at all on that guy.[/tangent]

    Some things to try without a hardware upgrade:
    Try different browser, particularly one you arent using like chrome or IE, to rule out FF causing the issue.

    Upgrade flash if it isnt latest, seems like this gets done on its own so maybe uninstall/reinstall.

    Upgrade your video card drivers if not latest.

    Or it may be the system is too old to play hd video well, depending on what slots are available on your mother board some cards can be fairly inexpensive.

    I will say this, the PC I had on loan was like 2.4 single core with 1 gig of ram. It couldn't play 1080 videos AT ALL.

    I've purchased low end athlon X2 computers with only 1 meg of ram and they streamed HD video fine. I bumped them up to 2 meg just to be safe and avoid any system lag.

    Uninstalled a couple apps, re-installed flash player, registry scan/fix, seems better.

    flash is garbage.

    try this experiment, disable flash in youtube and enable html 5 http://www.youtube.com/html5

    watch a video that you know is choppy in flash but it will now play in html5

    if its not choppy, you know your computer and flash has aids.

    flash blows.
