  • Restoration

    As some may remember, I had a major computer crash earlier this Summer. I'm about 97% restored, but I still have some minor issues. Any ideas on this one...

    When I play a video web based tutorial, like a Youtube or Line Art by Swampy, the video plays for about 35 seconds and stops. Is there some setting I must configure? Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Are you viewing the tutorials through Windows Media Player, or using the site viewer embedded in the website.

    If the first, it could be a problem with your Video Card driver (check to see if there's an update for your driver), also you can try turning Video Acceleration down or off.

    In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Performance tab.

    In Video acceleration, move the slider to turn down or turn off video acceleration.

    Not sure about on-site viewers, I'll have a look around and see if I can find anything. I'm presuming you have a fast connection and it's not just download bottlenecking that's the problem.

        I'm on dial up (don't ask why it's too long a story), so all videos are pretty much a no-no to me (unless I've got hours to spare while they download), so can't test it to see if it works OK.

        But with a 5M connection I can't see it being a DL speed issue.

        As it's a .flv file it could be a problem with your Flash player, have you tried installing the latest Flash player?

          just reinstalled change. Could it be a problem with storage allocation?
