Watchout 5.3 and Video Playback

Recommended Posts

I am running watchout 5.3 and having trouble with video playback. It is very choppy. A noticable pause every 3 seconds or so. This seems independent of codec or resolution. Are there any know issues with this?


Windows 7 64 bit

AMD Radeon HD 6900

I've had it happen to me...but NOT on a Watchout system.


Try to play the video with Windows Media Player and vlc outside of Watchout. Does it run,pause, run,pause...still occur?

If yes, at a guess:

- try re-coding the video(s) with a lower data rate

- try a lower resolution video

If no, it could be that some other codec has taken over the running of videos in Watchout. This can occur with a recent instalaltion of some other software. Step backwards and un-install any recent installations.

At worst, re-install Windows, and thereafter, Watchout.
