[SOLVED] XVID skipping on BS 2.15 and 2.21
I have a fresh system install (WinXP Pro SP2 32bit with all updates), BS Player 2.15/2.21 PRO, newest XVID codec 1.1.3, and DIVX codec 6.5.1.
When playing XVID movie in BS (DIVX logo appears in the begining) video skips randomly aprox every 30sec-1min. It just goes too fast for a second or two, while sound is OK. What is this?

PS Already tried with other codec versions, and BS versions. Other players work fine I think. Note that this all was working for me on the old system which was completely the same as this new one, except now I have bigger and faster hard drive.

You mention that you have both Xvid and DivX codecs installed, but apparently DivX-codec is used for this Xvid movie?
In DivX properties you should disable the support for generic Mpeg-4 so that Xvid-codec can take over for Xvid-encoded movies.

What is your sound card and driver? Bad drivers "causes" that. Especially Creative and SoundMax ones.

@estugarda: Strange as this may perhaps "sound" to you, but kimiraikkonen is entirely correct when stating this as a highly probable cause for your problem!

Yes BSPeter, you were right. I don't know why this was turned on though. It can't be default!? And why wasn't it skipping in MP and Nero? Weird.
Anywayz, thank you.
Problem solved.

P.S.: (just an additional remark)
In DivX-version 5.2.1 (which I'm still using to my full satisfaction), one can "disable DivX logo".
I don't know if that is still possible in version 6.x (but I do suppose so).
(In this case it proved to be usefull, that you didn't turn if off.)

No, I was wrong afterall.
The problem is still present.
Still skipping, although I did what BSPeter said.

I also reinstalled the drivers of my soundcard (Creative SB 128 PCI - a really old one). Now I have newest drivers from Creative for that one (Dec 2002). It is the same as with those of Windows.
But I had the same software on the same hardware already, and this soundcard had its original drivers and didn't make any trouble.
Not until reinstall.

Another idea:

Try disabling soundcard's hardware acceleration first, at first sight, it would be the last solution for that kind of problem, but beleive me i've had that kind of problem even i a fully-video compatible computer which the only hardware change was Creative Sound card!

I was tried a lot of codec/filter combinations, settings, disabling background processes, even uninstalling existing DirecX (what a pyscho huh :) ) But as i said, some problem may be like that...

For example, my on-board sound chip is C-Media CMI8738, of course there is a "good" difference when compared with Creative Vibra 128 (CT4810), but still i'm not "fully" comfortable with this driver and card.

I'm intended to say: Some newer drivers solves some "new" problems but some older drivers are more bug-free, that's why newer is not always the better.

I changed both the netwoor buffer and sound card hardware acceleration.
Nothing of it helped.
Not even reinstalling to the oldest sound card driver i have.

I never had such problems on exactly the same computer.
I don't know.

kimiraikkonen 1st August 2007 03:06 PM

Did you decrease or increade sound card hardware acceleration?

You should "decrease"

estugarda 1st August 2007 03:56 PM

First I decreased, then turned off.
No change.

I had that kind of problem with Creative Vibra 128 you can search the topic is existed. Changed to on-board, helped not fully, but had very difference.

Of course it wasn't a sound card problem. That was just ridiculous.
I forgot to install my AGP driver when installing Windows!!!
Don't ask me how. Don't ask me why. I just forgot.
Of course video wasn't working right. It is a f miracle it worked even that good for 72h non stop.
I just found it out as one of my cables touching the VPU started to melt.
