Watching video on pc, video stops, audio keeps going!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I hope this is posted in the proper area.

This is a problem that i have had for years with multiple hdd's and multiple versions of windows. This only happens while using wmp (windows media player)

Almost exactly 7:40 into any video that i watch on my pc, the video will stop, but the audio will continue. After about 5 seconds of this, the video will fast forward to keep up with the audio. I can move the time line up to the selected time and everything works fine, this only happens when i watch from the beginning.

Yeah yeah, i know, just don't use wmp.. I do use nero for a lot of my video and winamp for my music. I am still trying to figure this problem out.

It seems to me like the hdd tries to hibernate or something like that. I have keep files downloading to see if this would keep the problem from happening, not allowing the hdd to slow down here, but it keeps happening.

I am currently using win 7 64

Any ideas?

Do you have an updated version of WMP?

Personally I hate WMP. I run with VLC for all my media viewing needs
