Problems with Flash video.

Basically I'm having several issues with flash video; BBC iPlayer, Youtube, Vimeo... etc. There are several problems which I never had until recently. I'm unsure if it's flash, my GPU drivers or Firefox.

I'm experiencing (on and off):

Stuttering or playback that is otherwise not smooth (short-lived pauses followed by a fast 'catch up').

Buffering problems, where if I leave a video unattended it fails to buffer or stops buffering and I need a refresh to continue playback.

Problems seeking, where sometimes if I attempt to jump forward or back it stops playing completely.

Now I have Win7 Pro, 4Gb of memory and 500Gb spare on the HDD. I'm getting 15kbps down the net. I've uninstalled Flash and reinstalled, same with Firefox. I am on the latest Catalyst drivers (12.3). Flash is setup how you'd expect, GPU acceleration seems to make no difference when on or off.

I've never had any issues before and this is driving me nuts. Anyone have any ideas?

To be honest it's often quicker to just reinstall your OS with all the latest drivers than spend hours trying to diagnose the problem.

Of course, if after this you still have the problem, I guess it's a hardware or network issue. But better to start with a clean slate to rule it out?

Could just be a driver version, might be worth waiting for an update before a re-install.

Also, what is your cpu usage during (attempted) playback? I found in the past that despite having a dedicated gpu that your cpu can be a limiting factor when playing back flash videos...

I've had the problems highlighted, often youtube will only buffer a little in front, iplayer does the same.

Some videos can be choppy and then others at 1080p are really smooth.

I think maybe flash can be buggy they do bring out quite a lot of updates.

Aye exactly that, infact I find the higher bitrate videos work better. It's really strange and has only started behaving this way over the last month I'd say.

NP.

Tis a mystery to me, seems to come and go; doesn't seem to be a performance issue, got pretty good web and network bandwidth. CPU an GPU are fine, got memory to spare.
