In today's pace of development and accessibility of the Internet, fewer people download video to the computer, and watch it online. This contributes to a high speed of access, a variety of tariffs and the development of various video hosting and online cinemas. But sometimes when watching a video on the Internet, it begins to slow down or is not loaded at all. This is quite possible with a weak connection signal. The same problem occurs even if the expensive tariff plan is connected. The reasons may be somewhat, and to understand why the video does not ship well with a good Internet, you need to consider each separately.
Causes of slow video download on the Internet
When this problem appears, you need to check whether it is found only in one browser or it happens in any. And it should also be paid to how problems are manifested in playback: inhibits video on YouTube, in VC or on all sites, only in full screen mode or also in the window. All this is necessary, to understand what is the reason, then you can figure out what to do if the video slows down on the Internet.
The main factors affecting the quality of playback with a good Internet:
- computer hardware restrictions, laptop;
- Outdated browser version;
- third-party browser extensions;
- a large number of open-end programs and browser tabs;
- infection of the device for malicious programs;
- Video card drivers;
- hardware acceleration video;
- Flash flash player.
Important! A small amount of RAM is also able to brake video download online.
If video does not ship well with a good Internet, then you need to pay attention to the processor resources and memory consumption. You can view running applications in the Windows taskbar. These are mainly download managers, antiviruses, useful and not very utilities. They enter the device with different ways: when downloading files, installation of programs. Therefore, spending a few minutes to delete unnecessary you can improve the download of the video on the Internet.
Determine how much the device spends resources to perform the tasks assigned if you open the "Task Manager". To do this, click simultaneously keys: Ctrl + SHIFT + ESC.
In the window that opens, go to the "Appendix" tab, where the information about the currently running applications has been displayed. And at the bottom, resources and performance are indicated. If this digit exceeds 50%, then it is negatively reflected on the quality of video playback.
Important! To reduce the load, you need to close unnecessary programs and applications except browser. You can disable only those that are not used by the operating system, otherwise it will cause a failure.
You need to go to the Processes tab, and then "Users". You can safely close programs that are not indicated as "System", "Network" or "Local Service". If the device is so outdated that it does not pull the work of standard browser programs, it makes sense to think about replacing some of its components.
The less tasks performs the computer at the same time, the smaller the video and sound when watching online.
Outdated browser version
In order for all modern sites to work without errors and video files did not slow down when playing, you need to periodically update the browser. It also needs to be done to eliminate their vulnerability to prevent attempts to penetrate the computer, laptop and other virus devices.
Step-by-step instructions, how to update the browser through the settings:
- Firefox: "Menu" => "Firefox Help" => "Check updates", click and install.
- Chrome: "Menu" => "Update chrome". The absence of such an option means that the latest browser version is installed.
- Opera: "Menu" => "Help" => "Check updates", click and install.
- Yandex Browser: "Menu" => "About Yandex browser" => "Update", if there is such an option. Its absence means that the latest browser version is installed.
Third-party browser extensions
Now practically in any browser you can install extensions: VPN, advertising blockers, Internet accelerators. They are also able to slow down the operation of the device and slow down the video load when viewing in online mode.
To check which extensions are installed, you need to go to the browser menu and select the option "Advanced Settings" or "Extensions". Then disconnect them and check whether the video will be able to boot.
A large number of open-end programs and browser tabs
This is a fairly common reason why it's badly loaded and joining the video on the Internet. Even a relatively powerful device, with a large number of open tabs and programs, will begin with time to slow down strongly.
The browser is a demanding program. And each opened tab will take a certain amount of RAM. Therefore, with an increased load on the device begins to dine a video file, and also braking the entire Windows system.
Important! To solve the problem, you need to control the number of open programs and tabs on the computer or in iPhone.
To find out exactly which application is the highest load, it is necessary to simultaneously press the key combination: Ctrl + Alt + Del, which will allow you to open the "Task Manager". In the window that opens, you can see which program causes the greatest load. To turn it off, you must click on it with the right mouse button and select the option "Remove the task".
Video card drivers
The reason for a long time is loaded on the Internet, there may be a video card driver. This problem occurs as a result of reinstalling Windows, as well as in some cases after updating the operating system. After such a procedure, not all drivers are installed, but only those that are necessary to ensure the basic functionality of the device.
To correct the situation, you must download and install update to the official manually. Otherwise, avoid such problems as video braking and stuttering when playing a video file will not be possible.
In most cases, to download the new version of the drivers, it is enough to go to the official sites of graphic adapters and specify the video card model, the operating system and its discharge. And after downloading, install, following the instructions.
Important! To find out which video card is on the computer, you need to go to the "Start" right-click on "My Computer" to select "Properties", then click the "Device Manager" link, and then open the video adapter branch.
Hardware acceleration video
Another reason why videos on the computer on the computer on the Internet at a normal connection speed is turned off, and sometimes enabled, when the video card drivers are incorrectly operation, hardware video acceleration.
In this case, you need to right-click on the video and select the "Parameters" string. In the window that opens, you should put or remove the check mark on the row "Enable hardware video". If, after closing the context menu, the problem is preserved, you need to update the flash player program from the official site.
Slowly upload a video and a bunch of a PC or a phone can and when the device is infected with malicious programs. The brakes are especially felt if the viruses were installed by a trailer along with the main software.
Separate malicious programs are capable of:
- change homepage
- establish various extensions and plugins
- load processors work
- Show obsessive advertising.
All this in the complex leads to the fact that even with a quick Internet video files are slowly loaded or not reproduced at all.
To eliminate the problem, you must use the anti-virus scanner and carry out a deep test of a computer or laptop for potential threats.
Brakes are present only on one site
If the Internet speed is good, but at the same time the video online slows down on one site, it can occur for two reasons. The first is the low speed of the content of the content server. In this case, something is impossible. It remains only to go to the site later or find a video on another resource where it will quickly load
And the second reason is the site something did not like the ATATILUS installed on the device. When identifying such a problem, it should be alerted, since infected content can lead to serious problems. In this case, it is better not to risk, and see a copy of this video on another resource.
Important! Old processors such as Athlon, Celeron or Pentium may not be sufficiently powerful to load high-quality video even with a good Internet.
Work with different browsers
The mechanism for connecting this tool, depending on the browser, is somewhat different:
- Safari. Go to "Settings" and select the "Web content" section and enable the necessary tool.
Knowing the main reasons why it does not ship the video with a good internet, you can fix the problem yourself. But sometimes it can be associated with a banal overheating of the device, which has not been cleaned from dust for a long time. The decrease in temperature by 5-7 degrees increases capacity by 30-50%. Therefore, in some cases it is enough to clean a PC or laptop.
Hello everyone! In today's article, I want to deal in detail with the problem that many users of computers and laptops are faced by working on the Internet. It lies in the fact that it slows down the video when viewing online. It often happens that when you run any video on the Internet, problems with its playback begins: lags behind the sound from the video, the video is constantly freezing, the image is displayed on the screen folded or fuzzy. The reasons, due to which this trouble occurs quite a lot, and to understand, because of what problems arose, it is necessary to perform a comprehensive analysis. True, it will not be at all difficult even a novice user if you rely on this instruction.
I propose to highlight the main reasons:
- Hardware problem with computer iron;
- Connecting problems with Internet connection;
- Software problems;
I believe that these are the main aspects under which the problem is found. Consider each of them in detail.
Throws video when viewing online due to problems with iron.
Since modern technologies do not stand still and if earlier, users gladly looked through video from mobile phones, which were recorded in 3GP format, and had low quality, now, the requirements have increased. Most of the videos and films downloaded to the Internet have permission, at least HD. Because of this, many users have problems on weak computers and laptops. As a rule, three components affect the computer performance: video card, processor, RAM. They may not cope with the playback of high-definition video.
If your computer has a weak processor with one or two nuclei on board, then it is possible that it slows down the video when viewing online because of it, since it is not able to process a large data stream. This will lead to video and sound free.
To check whether the processor is guilty, you can go to the "Task Manager". Open the "Speed" tab and look at the "Loading CPU" parameter.
If during the playback of the roller, the processor will be loaded by 100%, then there is a high probability that it works at the maximum frequency and cannot cope with its task.
In this case, it is recommended to replace the processor to a more productive or think about buying a more modern computer.
An important component of the computer, is the video card. Problems with video playback, may be due to it. Very often, computers and laptops are equipped only with an integrated video card, the performance of which is quite low, compared with the discrete model. Built-in video cards are found on many office computers and laptops that were bought for work, not entertainment.
If you do not know which video card is installed in your PC, read the article - how to find out the video card of your computer.
After you figured out the video adapter model, it is necessary to see its characteristics, it is possible that it is already time to change.
If you have a computer, with a built-in video board, you can buy and install a discrete map. This will allow you to increase its performance without larger investments.
There are often cases when the video in the window works fine, but only it is worth making a full screen mode, as everything starts to hang. This is due to the low bandwidth of the video card memory. If your video card has a memory bus less than 128 Bit, then most likely you will encounter problems when playing FulHD and QHD video.
Here everything is simple, if there is little RAM, it will slow down not only the video, but also the computer itself as a whole. If you do not know how many RAM on your PC, then this article is for you - how to find out how many RAM on the computer?
As a rule, if RAM is loaded by more than 80 percent, then most likely you will come across problems. In most cases, you can try to turn off unnecessary programs that work in the background, it will free up memory and may somehow improve the situation.
Problems in software.
Not always, slows down the video when viewing online due to iron computers. Very often, the problem pops up on modern PCs, the components of which are quite productive and are able to pull modern games, not to mention the video. In this case, the problem most likely lies in the software.
Outdated drivers, codecs and software
Frequently, problems when playing video, occur when the old codecs are installed (a set of programs for playing video files of different formats) or not installed at all. Therefore, first of all, I recommend to download and install the most recent set of codecs from the official site.
After installation, restart the computer and try to view the video online. Perhaps the problem will solve.
Note! I recommend to remember when you last updated the drivers on the video card. If you recently installed a fresh driver, then a problem is possible in it, I advise you to roll back to the previous version. Perhaps the problem is in incorrect work.
Update Flash Player, it is responsible for the quality and smooth video playback. How to do this in the article - how to update Adobe Flash Player.
If you use a browser running on the chromium engine - this is a Google Chrome, Yandex Browser, the latest Opera versions, the flash player updates will not solve the problem, since its code is sewn into the program. Here we will help reinstall the browser or update to the latest version.
Turning on hardware acceleration and cache cleaning
There are two variants of speeding video: software option and hardware. The default software acceleration is enabled to switch to hardware, you must perform the following steps:
- Enable video playback in the browser;
- Click on the video, right-click and go to the "Parameters" menu;
- Talk item "Hardware Acceleration".
I also recommend cleaning the browser cache. Perhaps there a lot of garbage has accumulated there. What slows down the work of the browser, and in the investigation of what the video slows down when viewing online.
To clear the cache, go to the Internet browser settings and select "Clear Story". There, tick the necessary items and click "Clear".
After that, check how the video works, the problem may decide.
Also, I would like to pay attention to the fact that sometimes in the Google Chrome browser, there is a conflict of the built-in flash player and an external player.
To exclude the moment, do the following:
- In the browser's address bar We write: Chrome: // plugins and press ENTER;
- In the window that opens with the list of plugins is looking for Flash Player;
- If there is some other flash players in front of it, then we press the "More" button;
- In the list that appears, we turn off all third-party players.
Very often, it helps to eliminate the problem in browsers with a chrome engine.
Problems on the side of the Internet provider.
If the described methods have not allowed to solve the problem, check if there are no problems with the speed of the Internet. To do this, you can read the article - how to check the Internet speed online.
If the rate declared in the contract is very different from real, then I recommend to beat the alarm and call the provider. Perhaps the problem on their side and they are already trying to eliminate it or they do not know anything about your trouble.
As a rule, to watch video on the Internet in high resolution, a sufficiently high data transfer rate is required, from 8 MB / s. If your Internet connection is slow enough, then you can forget about a good picture, as you have to choose a more modest permission.
Problems on the side of the video hosting.
Very often, on the Internet there are sites on which there are many different rollers. At some point, because of the large influx of users, the server on which the site is located does not cope with the load and begins to slow down. This greatly affects online video playback on the site. If you encounter such a problem, only on certain sites, you should not panic, just go to the site at another time or look for an alternative.
Today I tried to disassemble all the popular ways to solve the problem in which the video slows down when watching online. I hope that you managed to troubleshoot and now you can enjoy watching video recordings on the Internet. As you can see, the problem does not always lift in the computer itself. There are many external factors that affect this situation. If you know some other way to eliminate this problem, write in the comments, we will definitely discuss it with you.
If 20 years ago viewing a video over the network in a mass version it was difficult to submit, now it is the most common way to feed the content. 😘 (probably not surprisingly why so many questions in this direction)
On popular video stations and social. Networks (YouTube, VC, classmates, etc.) You can see a lot of interesting rollers, films, reviews, etc. There are whole specials. Channels on various topics and genres.
But always There is something (or someone), who will break through the whole idyll ... We are talking, of course about brakes and lags that are not bypassing neither lovers of games, no fans of work with graphics, nor fans of videos and video. 😢
In this article, I want to affect problems such as braking video, its freezing, jerking, stuttering sound and so on. There can be a lot of reasons for this, in the article I will point out the most basic ones, as well as bring the recipes "cure."
If your computer slows down when playing local files (saved on disk) - then read this material
Why can brake video when viewing in browser
Low Internet Channel Speed
The first thing that more and most often brings problems is, of course Speed and quality of the Internet channel .
Some channels are too "weak", the Internet speed is not enough, and as a result, when viewing a video, it constantly loads and does not have time for reproduction.
Because of this, the user observes constant stops and waits for the buffering (up to-download part of the video).
In general, in my opinion practical experience to watch streaming video on the Internet with quality:
- For 360p - A channel is required at a rate of 3-4 Mbit \ C;
- For 720p - 5 Mbps;
- For 1080p - 10-12 Mbit \ s (watch so that nothing twitched and did not lag). This is enough for most videos on the same YouTube.
👉 But there is nuance : The stated speed of the Internet provider, and the actual is far from the same thing.
Therefore, in this case I recommend spending testing His Internet channel. About how it is done - I wrote in my article, I bring the link below.
👉 To help!
👉How to find out the speed of the Internet on a computer - an easy way ->
What can be done if you have low speed:
- At first If the speed of your tariff at the Internet provider is not enough for high-quality video playback - Connect to a speedy tariff (also try to speed up the Internet with the help of these tips ->);
- Secondly , Usually video hosting determines your Internet speed automatically and selects optimal video quality that reproduces your browser. 👉 If a The quality is supplied too high for your Internet speed - the video will slow down.
Therefore, one of the first tips, Try to downgrade . For example, youtube is done using the settings in the lower right part of the window of the viable.
Quality Change in YouTube
- third if it's not in the tariff, then first pay attention to the Wi-Fi router (if when connected to the Internet it is used) . Does it cost from the point of reception, how much is the antennas, are they connected? (👉 Tips for accelerating Wi-Fi);
- Fourth Some providers have problems in the evenings when the channels are overloaded. If it is repeated from day to day, and every time in the evening: then the output is two - either change the provider or watch the video at another time 😎;
- Fifth , also try to open video and put it pause for a minute - during this time it will take up the load of a large part of the video, and then you can watch the video without brakes;
- At sixth , pay the same attention Does your Internet channel do not occupy foreign programs : To do this, open Task Manager (Press CTRL + SHIFT + ESC simultaneously) , and sort the programs in the order of their load on the network. 👀
The screen below shows that the UTorrent program works, which, by the way, can eat almost all channel resources (with due load) . We recommend such programs or close when viewing the video, or to pause ...
Applications sorted by column network
What and what programs are so loaded Internet, where traffic disappears? Restricting the download speed and return for any of the programs.
👌 incorrect work of hardware acceleration in the browser
On some PCs, hardware acceleration may incorrectly operate (for example, for some reason, there are often some problems with this AMD Ryzen (in Windows 10)).
Therefore, if at the speed of your network everything is in order, I would recommend to disable this hardware acceleration (in that browser through which you watch online video!).
In Chrome To do this, first need to open Settings by pressing in "Three points" In the corner of the screen (👇).
Further in the search bar specify "Hardware ..." and slider parameter "Use hardware acceleration (if available)" Translate to mode Off ! 👇
Use hardware acceleration - off!
After that you need to restart the browser (and only then double-check video playback).
Large load on CPU, RAM, hard disk
It is possible that you slow down the video, but the PC itself. Most often, this is due to the fact that the processor or video card is loaded, sometimes loading reaches 90-100%! What kind of high-quality video here say ... 😢
To view the downloads of the CPU - open Task Manager (buttons Ctrl + SHIFT + ESC ).
Next in the tab " Processes " (Usually, it is active by default) Sort all processes in the order of their load on the processor. If a Among them are some running programs, significantly taking PC resources - try to close them!
Processes - Task Manager
👉 To help!
If there is nothing suspicious among processes (or closed applications did not help reduce the load), I recommend to get acquainted with the article
Also Recommend to check the tab "Performance" (in Windows 10). See screenshot below: First of all, pay attention to the CPU, the video card and the disk (it is better to do it in parallel with the video view enabled. If you see the load in 90-100% - the problem will become more clear ...).
Problems with drivers on the video card
Driver - Driver Return ...
If you have a conflict driver installed (For example, it used to be quite often with new versions of drivers. Now everything is happening much less frequently) Or too old driver - then the appearance of brakes when viewing video is not so rare.
Because of the driver version, by the way, some colors may also be expressed (for example, there is no bright red) - especially noticeable in games. By the way, games when driving problems - often do not start at all.
And so what I recommend to do:
- First check if you have devices for which there are no drivers (and install them if necessary). In detail 👉 about it all here;
- If you already have the drivers (and the problem with the video has not yet decided), I recommend trying to replace the drivers to another version. Download the video driver from the manufacturer's official website, then delete the old driver and put a new one. About how to delete old and unnecessary "firewood" see this entry;
- You can also use special. programs 👉 for auto installation of drivers.
Discrete and built-in video cards
By the way If you have a laptop (PC) with two video cards - check which video card is active when watching video.
The fact is that if you look high-quality video - the built-in video card may not cope (while the discrete will stand idle).
👉 In details You can learn about it From this article
The activity icon of the external video card: first did not work, then it became active!
Turbo mode, VPN, plugins, etc.
It happens that the server from which you want to watch the video is currently overloaded - as a result, you do not have a video from the video at all, or the video starts loading for a long time.
It is possible that your provider has a connection to a certain video hosting leaves much to be desired, and on the other - everything works fine. In this case, either change the provider, or watch the video on other sites (by the way, it is also a very good output).
By the way, if nothing has helped nothing listed, try using another web browser. Let's say if as most users use Chrome, you can replace it with Opera or Yandex browser (they have in arsenal, by the way, have turbo mode which sometimes easily saves!).
Yandex browser - how to enable turbo mode!
In addition to these products, there are other interesting options. Full list of current year browsers 👉 I brought in this article ->
Well, I can not not note that the enabled VPN in the browser (and "all sorts of" plug-ins with this) can seriously affect the playback of online video.
For a while, would recommend to reset the browser settings into default and delete (disable) all plugins / extensions. Chrome enough to open a page: Chrome: // Extensions /
See Screen below: There is FRIGATE extension (ciphering traffic). After removing it - the video began to be reproduced normally!
Extensions in Chrome.
Problems with Flash player in the browser
Now most of the video on the network switched to Adobe Flash Player on HTML5 Video (it is safer!). However, on some resources to play, you still need a flash player, and much depends on its work ... (especially concerns entertainment sites, where in addition to the video - there are mini-toys).
👉 Soon, Flash Player support, most browsers will be discontinued (in December 2020), "Network" goes to HTML 5. Therefore, this item of the article will soon lose the relevance ...
If the version of the Flash player is old (or is not compatible with your software, or conflict software) - then the video can start twitching and slowing down (often does not open at all).
👉If you are outdated Flash player - I recommend updating it. About how to do it correctly, told in this article.
In this case, I recommend to do the following:
- If you have a browser Chrome or Yandex browser (i.e. browser with built-in Adobe Flash Player), try to open the roller using, say, Firefox (or any other browser, 👉 About them, by the way, I wrote here ->);
- If it does not help, try the same Reinstall (update) Flash Player. . To do this, first go to the Windows Control Panel and remove the old version of the flash player. Note : Control Panel Open at (see Screenshot below) - Control Panel \ Programs \ Programs and Components .
Removing Flash Player.
- Next open the link 👉 https://get.adobe.com/ and download the new version of the flash player (as a rule, just press one button "Set now" ).
Install Adobe Flash Player
Note also on such an option as the enable / disable hardware acceleration. To do this, when viewing a video - just right-click on it and select the tab. "options" (not available on all resources on the network!). Next, place (remove) a tick on the contrary "Enable hardware acceleration."
If you managed to solve the question otherwise - let me know in the comments (thank you in advance!).
To this note I say goodbye, good luck!

- Computer accelerator A program for cleaning Windows from "garbage" (deletes temporary files, speeds up the system, optimizes the registry).
Imagine you came home after a hard working day and want to finally relax, turning on the favorite channel on YouTube or the film. And the video is loaded with jumps or hangs at all.
First of all, you will scold the Internet. But the problem may not be in the speed of the network, and corrected for several clicks with the mouse.
Low access speed
As we have already mentioned, the very most obvious problem for which they think primarily is the low speed of the Internet.
Check whether it is the most reason, it is possible to look at the special free areas where the speed is measured.
For example, use the Speedtest platforms, Yandex.Intextometer, NPERF and many others.
If the access speed is less than 1 Mbps, contact your Internet provider support. Perhaps there is a problem on your subscriber line.
Each you open tab, file, program, the application occupies a certain amount of RAM, which, alas, is not infinite.
The more the operational memory is loaded, the slower the system, including the download of the film.
If, in addition to the browser with the movie tab, you have more classmates, borscht recipes, mail applications, notes, video editor and image gallery, it is not surprising that the movie slows down. Close all unnecessary and look at the result, suddenly helps.
Flash player is needed to display high-quality video. Perhaps you did not update this program for a long time, and she began to give out failures. Then it's time to do the update.
The same applies to browsers. They need to be updated regularly so that there are no conflicts of programs and the browser worked stable.
Third-party browser extensions
For example, VPN directly affects video playback. Also, such expansion as Adblock and Adguard, intended for blocking advertising, slow down the browser.
You can disable them in the settings of the browser itself in the expansion tab.
Video card drivers
Perhaps after reinstalling the operating system, the drivers will work incorrectly or bugs.
In such a situation, you can download and install drivers from official NVIDIA, AMD or Intel sites. Or update automatically using the DRIVER BOOSTER utility.
Hardware acceleration video
The hardware acceleration turned off is one of the most frequent causes of the hanging video loading. The same result can be given acceleration when drivers work incorrectly.
To control hardware acceleration in the Google Chrome address string, enter chrome: // flags / #Disable-Accelerated-Video-Decode And in the list that opens, click "Disable" or "Enable".
Then go to the settings, find the "Advanced Settings" item there and in the section "System" switch the "Use hardware acceleration" item.
Perhaps some of the listed ways will help you cope with the problem and continue to enjoy watching movies!
Today, sites offer users a large number of images, interactive elements, audio and video materials. But the opening of pages overloaded pages often leads to a slowdown in the work of the browser and problems with playing video on the Internet.
To cope with this problem, you need to perform a number of steps to reduce the load on the PC and correct the possible errors.
Brakes video in browser
Solving video playback problem
Brake, interrupt and stop video playback on a personal computer can be called:
- PC configuration problems;
- hardware and software failures;
- Computer overload performed tasks.
To find out why the video "slows down" in the browser in a specific case, it is necessary to analyze the situation.
PC performance check
Step 1. Go to YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/ and choose video to play.
Go to the youtub site, choose and play video
Step 2. Simultaneously press the "Shift + Ctrl + Esc" keys.
Simultaneously press the "SHIFT + CTRL + ESC" keys
Step 3. Go to the "Performance" tab and look at the download of "CPU" elements (CPU) and "Memory".
Go to the "Performance" tab and look at the download of the "CPU" and "memory" elements
If the use of CPU and memory is approaching 100%, this means that they are overloaded with the tasks performed and problems are associated with PC performance. How to solve this problem, see below, in the subtitle "Problems with PC performance".
Check video playback
If the use of CPU and memory is normal, you need to check the quality settings when playing video.
Step 1. Go to YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/ and choose video to play.
Go to the youtub site, choose and play video
Step 2. Click on the settings icon (in the form of a gear) in the video player interface and click on the column "Quality".
Click on the settings icon, click on the column "Quality"
Step 3. Select image quality 720p and 360p and view how video is played in both cases.
Select the image quality of 720p and 360p, play video and see the result
If a low quality video is 360p, unlike 720p, is played normally, most likely, the problem is related to computer hardware restrictions. If any video is not played normally, the problem is related to the PC setting.
Refresh Driver Video Card
The video playback problem may be caused incorrectly by the PC video card. Even if the latest version of the video driver is installed on the computer, it is necessary to update it, because It can cause crashes in the video card.
Step 1. Press together the "Win + R" keys.
Click together the "Win + R" keys
Step 2. Print in the "Devmgmt.msc" menu and click "OK".
We print in the "Devmgmt.msc" menu and click "OK"
Step 3. Open the "Video adapter" menu, right-click on the video device and select the left "Update Driver".
Reveal the "Video adapter" menu, click the right mouse button on video device, select the left "Update Driver"
Step 4. Select "Automatic Search".
Choose "Automatic Search"
Step 5. Wait until the program updates the driver.
Waiting for the completion of the driver update process
Step 6. Click "close" to restart the PC.
Click "Close", reboot your computer
Disable hardware acceleration in browser settings
Incorrect use of hardware acceleration can cause problems with playing video in Internet browsers.
Step 1. Go to "Settings" of the browser (three vertical points), click on the "Settings" row.
Go to the "settings" of the browser, click on the "Settings" row
Step 2. Scroll down the page down and click "Additional".
Scroll down the open page down and click "Additional"
Step 3. Find the system "System", scrolling the page down with the mouse wheel, move (disable) the slider or uncheck the checkbox from "Use hardware acceleration (if any)".
In the "System" block, in the "Use hardware acceleration" (if available), move the slider to the trip mode
Step 4. Restart the browser.
Reference! In the example, browser is the online browser Google Chrome. In other browsers, these settings are similar.
Enabling the paging file in Windows
If less than 4 GB of RAM is installed on the PC, it is desirable to enable the paging file in Windows.
Reference! Podchock file is a highlighted hard disk space used to temporarily place information from RAM.
Step 1. Press "Win + R", print in the "sysdm.cpl" menu and click "OK".
We print in the "SYSDM.CPL" menu and click "OK"
Step 2. Select the "Advanced" tab and in the "Speed" section, click "Parameters".

Work with different browsers
If the page loading speed in Chrome browser is satisfied with the user, but the video slows down, you can use the Fresh Yandex, Opera, Firefox browser, and others. To view the video, and Chrome to view web pages.
This will make it possible to isolate the most resource-intensive tasks separately from other tasks on the Internet and partly solve the problem with watching video on the weak PC.
Video - What should I do if it slows down online video in the browser?
While working on the Internet, many users face an unpleasant situation when the video slows down in the browser. As a result, on viewing the roller leaves more time, and the nerves are in the maximum voltage. To avoid such a problem, you need to find out the source of its appearance and eliminate. Below will look at the causes of such situations and look through the events that allow you to quickly restore normal video operation.
If you slow down the video in the browser, it is important to determine the source of the problem. We highlight the main options:
- Old browser version;
- Outdated Flash Player or HTML 5;
- Low Internet speed;
- disconnected hardware acceleration;
- problems with "iron";
- Incorrect settings Flash Player;
- inclusion of third-party extensions in the browser;
- Incorrectly specified video priority, etc.
After determining the cause, you can proceed to the elimination of the problem. Below, we consider it more.
Ways to solve the problem
As noted, the user actions algorithm depends on the reason for which difficulties in viewing video have arisen. For convenience, consider each situation separately.
Low Internet speed
Before taking serious measures, check the speed of connecting to the network. If the video is inhibited online in all browsers, the cause may be limited speed characteristics. In addition, the problem of many providers is to reduce the speed of connecting into bad weather or peak hours. In such periods, an unstable connection and frequent cliffs are often observed. Calls to technical support do not always give results.
The user's task is to determine the cause. It is important to know exactly that the video slowly loads and slows down because of the velocity of the Internet. Here you can take such steps:
- Try to download some kind of movie or file via torrent tracker and look at the real download speed.
- Use a special server to monitor the connection speed, for example, Speedtest.net, 2IP Or other sites. In all cases, you need to go to the resource and click on the test button. The greater speed shows the program, the better. Separate attention should be paid to the ping time characterizing the response speed of the server. If the video browser is viewed, it may indicate a low speed or value of ping more than 250 ms. To view the video, it is optimal that the latter parameter is below 150 ms.
When low speed is detected, try to restart the router or contact technical support about the reasons for the current situation. It happens that the problem with communication lies on the shoulders of the provider.
If your speed is low, and constantly slows down the video, you can change its quality. Today, many services allow you to change permission to speed up the download from users who have a restriction on the Internet. Quality, of course, worsens, but they will have problems braking video.
If, when quality reduction in the browser, the video is still freezing, do not hurry to immediately view the roller. Turn it on and wait until the download band will reach at least half. If there are constant problems, it is better to think about changing the provider. Select the company that provides the Internet with normal speed and ping. In big cities, there should be no problems with this. At the same time, consider that to play video in the browser in 720 p format, it will take from 5 Mbps and above, and for 360r - from 1 Mbps.
Failure or Old Flash Player version
Considering the reasons why video hangs in the browser, you can not exclude problems with Flash Player. If this application is outdated or worked incorrectly, it is not necessary to be surprised if the roller slows down or is not reproduced at all. Immediately, we note that today the flash player is gradually moving into the past, and more perfect HTML comes to his place. Thanks to this feature, the dependence of the browsers from Flash Player is now less.
Conditionally all browsers are divided into two groups:
- Google Chrome and all web providers created on its basis (Opera, Amigo, Nichrome, Yandex).
- Other products - Internet Explorer, Microsoft Age, Firefox and others.
The first group includes browsers that use the built-in Flash Player, and for other web conductors this program needs to download. If you are using the software from the second group, and during viewing the video in the browser is tupit, it is better to restart the conductor and check the correctness of the Flash Player.
In a situation with Google Chrome, the situation is more difficult. If the roller constantly slows down, make sure that the web conductor's plug-in is correct. Sometimes the problem arises due to the conflict between the external and internal Flash Player. Make such steps:
- Enter the program and type Chrome: // plugins;
- Find Flash Player and press more;
- Note that only the one is installed in the Google Chrome folder (unnecessary) in the list of connected resources;
- Restart the browser.
Sometimes problems arise due to the obsolete version of Flash Player. In this case, go to the official site, download the new version of the flash player and install it on the PC.
Now check again - the roller slows down or not. There is another method, what to do if the freighted video in the browser - turn off the hardware acceleration. But on this issue we will still focus below.
Load on CPU, little RAM
Often the picture in the browser is inhibits due to the shortage of the technical capabilities of the device (high load on the CPU and the RAM deficiency). Because of such a problem, not only slows down the video, but also there are other difficulties with the work of PC. All programs begin to work slower.
To determine the problem, why the browser hires video, log in to the task manager. For this:
- Click on the Ctrl + Alt + Del button;
- Enter the Task Manager;
- Click on the Performance tab;
- Pay attention to the work of the CPU schedule, look at the load percentage.
If the seen parameter is about 100%, this suggests that the PC does not cope with the load. To solve the problem, go to the Process tab and close the applications that do not need and use the maximum amount of CPU. After that, check again - the video slows down when viewing in the browser or not. If the cause of braking was the overload of the CPU, the problem should disappear. In the future, you can put programs that themselves close unnecessary applications, and it is better to optimize PCs.
Video card driver
Many do not know what actions to take if the video lags in the browser, what to do, and where to apply. Most often, the problem is solved simply - by updating or installing the necessary drivers. If you notice that the video slows down immediately after reinstalling or updating Windows, the likelihood is that the cause of lags is the software.
In this case, you need to go to the site of the video card manufacturer and download the necessary drivers. To see the type of device, you can use the device manager. Right-click on my computer, select Properties and go to the Task Manager. There in the Video adapter section, look at the manufacturer of your video card (AMD, NVIDIA or others). Next download the desired option (taking into account your OS and install on the PC).
The mistake of many newbies is that they check updates through the device manager. The system says that is not found new, and the person calms down. This is an incorrect approach, because the update may not be in Windows, but the developer does not occur with this difficulties.
Taking over with the question why the video lags in the browser, you must not forget about the hardware acceleration option, which can be disabled. Sometimes the reverse situation is possible when the video is inhibits due to the inclusion of this function (on old GPU). Enter the web browser settings and see what position is a toggle switch. If the option is enabled, try to disable it, and vice versa. After making changes, check - inhibits the picture in the browser or not.
In Google Chrome, before turning off the option, enter the Chrome: // Flags / # iGnore-GPU-BlackList in the Search field, and then press Enable. Now restart the browser. If the video slows down, check the inclusion-shutdown of acceleration.
For Google Chrome, this work is done as follows:
- Enter the address string and vboit Chrome: // flags / # disable-accelerated-video-decode;
- Select Disconnection or Enable.
You can use a similar approach for Yandex, but instead of the first word chrome: // you need to install Browser: //.
If you slow down the video in the browser Internet Explorer or Microsoft EJ, take such steps:
- Click on the combination of Win + R;
- Propashite inetcpl.cpl;
- Click the input and in the Advanced field, find the acceleration of the graphics, and there use the software rendering ... At the end, apply the settings;
- Restart the browser and check - the video slows down or not.
In Mozilla Firefox you can speed up the browser, if you enter the settings, then general, and after - performance.
Other reasons and solutions
Above we allocated the main reasons why videos are lagging in browsers, and what to do in such cases. But this is not all the circumstances that can affect the viewing of the rollers. The picture often slows down for other reasons:
- A large number of open programs or tabs. This widespread error with many newbies. They open dozens of tabs and expect quick work from a web conductor. It is important to understand that each open site takes a certain part of RAM, and if it is not enough, the video in the browser slows down. That is why when a malfunction appears, it is better to first close the unnecessary tabs and check the effect.
- Problems with network equipment. If at home or in the apartment there is a simple router, it may not cope with the load. As a result, part of the Internet speed is cut, and the video in the browser slows down. In such a situation, the user has two ways - to turn off the extra devices (at least temporarily) or buy a more modern router, ready to carry an increased load.
- Updating browser or OS. Almost all resources on the network are designed to apply the updated web conductor. If suddenly challenges the video in the browser, it may indicate the use of an outdated version. In this case, the conductor must be updated. As a rule, it is enough to go to the Help section and the program. If the PC is not installed on the PC, the download starts automatically. On the stability of the video, the OS update is not less. If the roller slows down when viewing, it may be necessary to download the new version of Windows. As a rule, this work happens automatically.
- High load on the server. Not rare video in the browser slows down due to increased load on the server. This happens if at the same time a large number of participants watch the video on the site or just enters the site.
- Outdated codecs. The reason that the video in the web browser may be the use of outdated codecs or their absence. For reliability it is recommended to install a special software K-Lite Mega Codec Pack. Even if such an installation does not solve the problem, then it will definitely not be too much.
- PC pollution or laptop . The cause of the problem may be dumped from the inside. In this case, the main elements of the device, such as a video card, motherboard and processor overheat, and the video slows down. If you have not cleaned the equipment for a long time, this is a good reason to solve the problem. But in the absence of experience, it is better not to do the work itself, but to instruct it to specialists. Pollution is evidenced by the enhanced noise of the cooler and the appearance of frequent problems with the work. Alternatively, you can set the system utility that allows you to conduct periodic diagnostics of the PC, for example, AIDA64.
- System trash. With long-term use of browsers, cache accumulates in it, due to which the video is often slowed down. To avoid such a problem, clean your browser cache through internal capabilities or special programs (CCleaner).
- Viruses. There are often situations when malicious programs affect the quality of video playback. To exclude this version, you need to check the PC using antivirus software.
Consider some more solutions if the browser slows down the video what to do. Useful recommendations:
- For a while, turn off the antivirus and restart the conductor;
- Try to turn off all extensions in the browser;
- If the video is inhibits only in YouTube, try to exit the account.
As a rule, the methods reduced enough to solve the problem and in the future normally watch the video. If the roller slows down, you can seek help from specialists from computers.
