Windows XP - SP3
I'm using both Firefox 3.5.2 and Opera 10 and I have this problem with both.
Flash videos stutter visually a LOT. During the short millisecond stutters the UI of the browser freezes a bit.
Things I done to try and fix this:
- Completely formatted my computer with a fresh windows xp install.
- Cleaned out my PC of all dust and grime.
- Using a AVG as my antivirus.
What is causing this?
Edit: Thank you all for all the answers! :) I have a backwater ISP and I doubt they even know what throttling even means. I've never had this sort of problem with flash videos in the 4 years I have this computer. I have 2GB ram, and a Dual Core 2.7GHZ processor with nVidia 7300GT graphics card. My machines specs aren't the problem here.
Could it just be a problem with flash in general? What's up with that? :S
EDIT2: Forgot to mention it's not the connection at all, because the buffers loads up fine, at the same pace as usual. It's the playback that's laggy and completely bugges out my browser.
