Flash videos above 360p keep stuttering


Recommended Posts

Just over the last month, anything on Youtube, Gametrailers etc that is above the normal 360p has started performing very badly. I can't even watch 720p or higher because it freezes up the browser or moves at 5fps. This happens both in Firefox and Chrome so it's not browser related and I have the latest Flash update so I can't understand how this is happening.

Any ideas?

Try Internet Explorer, AFAIK it uses a different way of installing Flash than virtually everything else. If it's OK then it might be your updated Flash plug-in has issues with your computer configuration (wouldn't be the first time they've released something which knackers weaker hardware).

Ok this is odd, if I load a video at 1080p, it freezes and I just close the window via processes. I decided to leave it and see what happens this time and after about 2 minutes, it unfroze and played the video without any problems.. WTF.

I'll try clearing temp files and reinstalling flash, not much point reinstalling browsers as it's not the issue.

IE? lol I disabled that months ago, I don't know how to get it working again...

      Two new asset releases!

      First up is Basalt. Sadly I can't release all of the assets as some of the nature stuff is from Megascans and can't be redistributed. Also only includes the assets I've made.


      Second one is assets I've made for Pitstop. A small release that includes some road and concrete trim textures, a bunch of sponsors and some skybox buildings that might be useful.
