Why do videos skip when played off my laptop?

Katie Herlingshaw August 14, 2012

There is no problem when I stream videos online, but if I download something and play it, then the video stops and starts. I’ve tried different players and it’s the same with all of them and this happens with all videos. Please help!

    Try disabling your antivirus or security software before playing the video files to see if it helps. If not, try using IOBit Game Booster to disable some services and programs to gain memory and processing power. If that doesn't work either, make sure your software and drivers are up to date. I would also use CCleaner to clean out junk and temp files and use the registry cleaner to clean up broken or orphaned registry items. You may also have to change some settings in your video settings.

    As Erlis and quite a few others suggested, I think it has to do with the codecs. Make sure you have the codecs installed. K-Lite Mega Codec pack should do good.

    Uninstall all your video players and then download ur video again then install Shark007 Win7Codecs from this site:- http://shark007.net/win7codecs.html and http://www.majorgeeks.com/Win7codecs_d5959.html They work perfectly... try it out

    There are many reasons why this can happen, but one reason that's fairly common is that there is something else (another program or multiple programs) in the background demanding system resources. Codecs could be the problem but the first thing I would check is what's going on in the background. Stop everything else and then try your video. If that resolves the skippy video problem, then you could still have a codec problem (your current codec is requiring too many system resources) or some program (like an anti-virus scanner) is hogging the bus.

    your download file is not a complete one, so it just play the file with a certain of size.

    See if you can replace your HD with a laptop SSD if they make them...

    perhaps the download is not complete or corrupted?

    I think it's a problem with codecs... Try to clean uninstall all your video players & codecs installed, using a program like Revo Uninstaller!
    After this try to install K-Lite Codec Pack (I would recommend Mega Pack. It has all the codec you need)
    Here you can find K-Lite:
