    I have played the video on my Windows 7 box and no problems. I have also played the video on my Windows 8 laptop and get the video problem at the same spot I have different drivers than you so I do not think it is a driver issue it is a Windows 8 issue.
    Why is it Windows 8 problem ? It is more the problem because of driver issue. I played the Video on both my Windows 8 PC's with NVIDIA GeForce and I have no problem with it. Don't forget OP is using a beta driver for his Video card and drivers for Windows 7 is already out for a while.

    BTW, is it Korean Singers ? They're good.

    Cheers !!!

    I thought that labeeman's explanation was clear enough.

    I also have Mint on the same laptop and do not have the video problem there either that leaves out hardware problems on my end.

    Hi there
    Youtube video quality depends on 4 things

    1) YOUR display resolution and quality which means correct drivers installed and decent hardware in the first place.
    2) Source Video's resolution and quality
    3) Skill of the creator of the video -- sometimes people can be a bit amateur and these videos can be jerky and have the quality of a cheap VHS videocorder.
    4) Your Internet speed -- if you want to look at say an HD stream and you have a slow internet connection --forget it.

    Unless all 4 items are top quality the video you see is liklely to be very poor indeed. Audio should never be a problem --but given the days of people thinking Music should sound like highly compressed mp3's when using those horrible Bud type earphones - a lot of the audio is actually TERRIBLE even when the video is passable.

    HINT to video makers -- same to people leaving messages on voice mail. You need to speak VERY SLOWLY and CLEARLY -- you need to speak SLOWER than normal converstational speed. Play the thing back to yourself before uploading it - or "Guinea pig a friend" with it.

    I always inwardly grown if I'm looking for an explanation on how to do something -- and all I can find are YouTube videos. - I'd prefer a power point explanation or something like that so I can stop easilyre-do the bits I'm stuck with. YouTube is fine for say a LECTURE or a movie clip - but as a tutorial --NO THANKS.

    Cheers

    hi guys,

    this is what i have so far:

    PCs with problem

    • My pc: AMD Radeon HD 6570, Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (I reformat since I thought it was an W8 problem) has the problem on IE. Chrome doesnt, however if If do this then the problem appears:


    Click image for larger version

    • My Brother's laptop: AMD Radeon (dont know version atm), Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, has problem on IE, doesnt have it on chrome.


    No problem:


    • My Dad's laptop: Intel Integrated graphics, Windows 7 Home Premium
    • My Netbook: Intel Integrated graphics, Windows XP Home Basic.


    They all have the same version of flash instaled:

    Click image for larger version

    So I think it is a AMD problem with flash player, since the guy with no problem said he has nvidia ??

    Labeeman what is a windows 7 box, a virtual pc on your laptop? what are your specs >_<

    My Windows 7 box (computer) is a AMD cpu desktop with a NVIDIA graphics card. The laptop is a Intel 7 cpu with NVIDIA. The only difference is the Flash versions the 7 box has 11.6 and the 8 laptop has 11.5 (this one has the problem with the video). Mint (linux) uses 11.2 does not have the problem. Mint is also on the laptop.

    hmm now i am more confused than i was before lol.
    do you think installing an older version of flash will solve this?
    If I had known it was a flash problem only I wouldnt have reformatted :'(

    The Flash Versions that I have are newer than the ones you have posted. I do not have problems with the 11.6.602.171 but do have problems with the 11.5.xxx.xxx Flash. It is not a driver issue as you would have other problems also.

    I have flash version 11.6.602.180. I tried to install your 171 version but it wouldnt let me because it says its too old.
    I uninstalled the active X flash player and IE doesnt have the problem anymore.

    I think i will leave it like this :S if i find the solution i will post back (firefox still have problem)

    OP,
    why don't we try to turn off accelerator to see if it helps with firefox.
    Right click on the video->Settings and untick the accelerator.

Youtube video quality problem. Is it just me??
Related Threads
So I've decided to record me covering a song today, but about 30 seconds withing the recording the sound quality just drops and sounds like something was placed over the mic giving it a muddy sound. Any way to fix this problem? Thanks in advance! c:
Whenever I go full screen on youtube it looks terrible. I have searched and searched and have no idea how to fix this. Can't even find someone with a similar problem. Blurry and 256 colours. Something similar happens to the desktop when I leave fullscreen from VLC or VirtualBox. That makes sense...
Checking my audio quality levels, I noticed my default setting was 24bit 48000hz (studio quality.) Is that a setting I should continue using? The only sound output device i'm using are only a pair of Skullcandy ear phones, in-regards to that i'm assuming such a level isn't needed for playback....
I have alot of mp4 music videos that I would like to convert to wav or flac. Can anyone recommend the best software for doing this on windows 8?
Since installing Windows 8, the audio quality in any MP4 files is distorted and echoes. This happens regardless of what player I use to view them (You Tube, iTunes, Media Player). If I play a professional video in You Tube it is OK. All other types of video are fine and all other sound output...
