Hopefully someone else has this issue, because I'm tired of trying to search for the same symptoms:


- primary monitor is a 24" Samsung 1080p running FF 5.0

- secondary monitor is a 52" Samsung 1080p running MPC-HC

- HTPC is an i3 w/ 12GB RAM, video is running off an ATI 5450


The issue is this: when I'm browsing on the primary monitor in FF, every 5-10 seconds, the video in MPC-HC plays in slow motion, as if something is pegging the cpu. The cpu is always under 10%. If I minimize FF, the slow motion effect subsides, but will still happen every minute or so.


I have tried using different browsers (Chrome, IE), different players (VLC, WMC) and different video types (mkv, avi, mp4) with the same results. For some reason, having a browser running is affecting video playback and I can't lock down a fix. Anyone else run into this?

i had this once when i used my laptop as a playback system.

happend when my browser screen was in window mode and a little to much moved to the second screen.

when doing a full screen it was solved.

could be also the other way around.

Are both displays set to run at 1920x1080 and running in full screen mode(no windows). It is the processor in the graphics card that is getting overloaded and it is dropping frames and has to stutter to catch up.
