Re: why some videos choppy, some not

What model laptop?


What OS?


What video driver?

 

What Browser?

 

Do you have the latest Adobe Flash and Shockwave installed?

 

Have you check the YouTube Help Center to see what they have to say?  They have several fixes for common problems like yours.

Re: why some videos choppy, some not

There is only so much that you can do with a laptop that old.  It simply doesn't have the cpu power or the graphics capability to do what you are asking of it.  I had a laptop with similar XGI (they now own Trident) graphics and had the same problems you are referring to and I had a Pentium 4 processor and 1.25gigs of ram.

Re: why some videos choppy, some not

That's one of the problems I had.  If the video stream is fast enough and it's encoded in a way that is easy for the system to decode then they play fine.  If the video stream slows down and/or it's encoded in a higher end format that requires more processing power it just can't keep up as the system simply isn't powerful enough to decode the video stream.
