K did that. Youtube videos are fine. Hulu videos are good too, but they become choppy when I maximize to full screen. When we disabled everything Hulu played fine when it was maximized.

If you have on-board video, not a real video card, it may be your issue.

You can tell, if you have on-board video, or separate video card by looking at the back of your computer.
If the monitor is connected somewhere in Area 1, you have on-board video.
If the monitor is connected somewhere in Area 2, you have real video card.

I'm not sure what's going on here.
Possible overheating, I guess.
Get a can of compressed air and clean well all vents.
Try to elevate laptop while playing videos.

If you go to the Hulu website, a lot of people have been complaining about choppy playback ever since Hulu updated their website to require only the latest version of Adobe flash player. If you go to their forums, Hulu staff have indicated that they're having issues with servers being shared across large geographical locations. However, for some people, right clicking on the video window and disabling hardware acceleration has improved playback in both full screen and window sized screen. If that doesn't work, Hulu has also provided installation software called hulu desktop so that your run from their software and you have more options to lower video settings in case this is causing video problems.


As for youtube, a lot of videos tend to be choppy. It's just a matter of how the video was developed and uploaded into youtube.
