slow video in browser

When I watch video in a browser such as youtube it is OK for 1-2 minutes then gets jumpy for about 30 secs and restarts. Task Manager shows that jumpy video coincides with CPU usage jumping to 100%, but I cannot see any application or Process causing this jump. Happens with Firefox and Chrome.

Are you updated to the latest flash player, Adobe.

what connection speed have you and anything else running at the same time?

Adobe is up to date and internet speed is 3Mbps. It plays DVDs OK.

At 3 Mbs, I assume that is the Maximum speed, which is rather slow for Video watching, escecially if the video's are in a High defination format. DVD's are a different subject as they run via the Processor & graphic card and do not rely on an external source.

It seems that the automatic quality control ( adjust video input to match your computer) has been upgraded and you now have to set it yourself.

Have a look at link for further advice.,or.rgc.rpw.,cf.osb&fp=6070734588b6ef9b&biw=1024&bih=535
