Specs: XP pro / Vista home, XP: 1GB / Vista: 3GB
this issue pertains to not only my vista system, but also xp.

have noticed that when I play internet videos they play choppy until I move the cursor around (either over the video while playing, or around on the desktop while video plays). any ideas what may be causing this issue? this only occurs using the internet (not with dvd's). I am using cable internet through Verizon.

A way to stop choppy playback and slow video streaming is to Disable the use of hardware acceleration. Hardware acceleration can cause choppy PC playback, application crashes and slow streaming video problems. This occurs because the option forces all video players to conform to one setting. By disabling this option, the individual player can set based on the requirements of the file.

Disable Hardware Acceleration by using these steps:
1.Click on Start
2.Click Control Panel and Click Display
3.Select the Settings tab and click on the Advanced.
4.Click on the Troubleshoot tab.
5.Disable the hardware acceleration completely by dragging the slider to the extreme left.
