I am wondering whether someome would help with an issue I'm having trying to watch videos on icefilms. This issue has happened intermittently since I started using icefilms over a year ago, but hasn't occurred for several months.
Anyway, the video opens fine, and the download speed is great but then it gets stuck and skips in one spot right at the beginning. It's similar to what it sounds like when an LP record gets stuck - the video and sound are affected. The computer freezes up, and I have to wait several minutes before I can get a chance to close out of the browser. Sometimes after several minutes of doing this, it suddenly starts playing normal for a second ot two, then starts again.
If I pause the video just after the video opens, and let it completely load, everything loads excellent. However, when I unpause the DivX player, same issue.
Sometimes the issue is resolved by restarting the pc, clearing the browser history and temp files, but that could be a coincidence because just as often it doesn't work.
I also try other random links, and have the same issue. Yesterday and tonight I was trying to watch COPS (LOL!)
I am using Firefox 8 and have confirmed I am using the IQS 4.4. update and verified GM is enabled. I have changed nothing on my pc.
I use icefilms quite often, sometimes daily, and usually have no problems at all. This issue has cropped up for the last 2 days.
If anyone can help, it would be appreciated and fantastic to resolve the issue once and for all. Thanks much!!
