Video playback stutters



  • For a while now, I've noticed that video playback has been buggy in all blink based browsers. The image and audio seem to stutter, as if it was slowed down. Chrome seems to have fixed this with their last release, but both Vivaldi and Opera still have this annoying problem. Is this a known issue among vivaldi users? I've seen a lot of complains on this among the opera community, but nothing here, so I thought I should create this topic.



  • Funnily enough I just stopped using Chrome because of this, and haven't yet noticed it in Vivaldi.

    Think it's something to do with the profile more than anything else.

    Sorry I should have mentioned that I was using Chrome Beta. Maybe Google only released the update on beta to test it or something. It was back to working smoothly for me. Opera and Vivaldi, unfortunately, still stutter when playing videos.



  • i think the problem is more to do with codec requirements than browser engine, i had to retire my atom powered media box since streaming services stopped using mpeg-4asp and are now using vp9/HEVC/h.265 not even a nvidia geforce gtx750ti could stop the splutter

    as time goes by and people adopted newer and more efficient compression codecs the more stuttering u will encounter
    if you dont have a 4th-gen and up intel Core CPU or a 6th-gen and up amd A-series APU your gonna need a new video card a nvidia 700 series card wont make the cut so buy a 900 series or a amd r7 300 series, anything below these do not have the required asic or arm hevc processor onboard

    and if you dont believe me, h.265 takes 3 times more processing power to playback in real time than h.264 does and takes 10 times longer to encode but the end result is worth it, 2 fold quality improvement over the older h.264 at the same bitrate



  • But why doesn't this happen with Firefox, or even Chrome which until a few days ago had this bug as well?



  • Hi there !

    Maybe this is a driver problem. Right now I am on a laptop with an AMD A4 APU and not experiencing any Video-Playback-issues.
    Not in Opera, not in Vivaldi, not in Chromium, not in Chrome …
    I know there's some kind of browser plugin from NVIDIA so maybe it's even a plugin problem.
    Would be interesting to know if all of you posting in this thread are using NVIDIA-GPU's ?

    System: Win 10 x64,
    Vivaldi: 1.0.283.8 (Developer Build) (64-bit)
