Q. What should I do if the video from Films on Demand is choppy?

The video runs slow and stops for 5 seconds, or it appears to skip momentarily

Answer

The problem of choppy video playback may be related to your PC, so adjusting the settings of the Hardware Acceleration may eliminate this problem. To adjust the settings, first determine which operating system you are using and then follow these steps.

Disable Hardware Acceleration in Windows XP:

  1. Click Start
  2. Click Control Panel and then select Display
  3. Navigate to the Settings tab and then click Advanced
  4. Choose the Troubleshoot tab
  5. Disable hardware acceleration by dragging the slider to the extreme left

Disable Hardware Acceleration in Windows Vista:

  1. Click Start
  2. Click Control Panel and then select Appearances and Personalization
  3. Choose Personalization and then click Display Settings
  4. Select Advanced Settings
  5. Navigate to the Troubleshoot tab and then click Change Settings
