Title

[Platform_Windows]Slow motion playback

Description

Problem Description: On the latest versions of Chrome, Opera and Internet explorer with Flash 11.2 installed for all browsers, higher quality YouTube videos and most videos on websites besides YouTube will play with the video in slow motion (smoothly though) and skip chunks of consecutive frames while the audio plays fine. The video and audio are not synced together, and the video lags behind the audio. This problem did not occur with Flash player 11.1, where higher quality video would have a lower frame rate but the video and audio would be synced. I noticed that with Flash Player 11.2, as I mentioned, the slow motion effect doesn't drop any frames, and thus videos that used to be choppy with 11.1 now are smooth in 11.2, besides the regular frame jumping. If the slow motion and jumping effects can be solved this may be a break through in getting older computers to play higher quality video smoothly.

Steps to Reproduce: Configuration: Athlon XP 3000+, 1GB DDR PC 2100 RAM, Radeon X1950 Pro AGP 512MB Video Card, Windows XP Professional 32-bit, Use the latest Flash Player and the latest version of Chrome, Opera or Internet Explorer. View a video at 720p or 1080p on YouTube.

Actual Result:Video is in slow motion, out of sync with the audio, and appears to jump chunks of frames as if to try and keep up with the audio (but doesn't very well if at all).

Expected Result: The video and audio should be synced, but with this processor I would expect a lower frame rate, depending on how intense the video is. At 1080p, YouTube videos barely even went past 2 FPS with Flash 11.1. With Flash 11.2, I get the same "slomo" performance with 1080p as I do with 720p, strangely enough.

Any Workarounds: I set the quality down to 480p to maintain a sufficient video/audio sync.

    Hello, I solved this by getting rid of what I don't use like most of my browser's plug-ins, extensions, accelerators, flash's "hardware accelerator", search providers.

    Celeron, 1GB RAM, Win XP.

    I too am suffering from this problem. It's nothing to do with CPU overload in my instance. All Flash video is played in a smooth slow motion. I can solve the problem by disabling my secondary monitor - but that's hardly ideal.

    core 7 2500k, 8GB mem, Quatro 600, Win 8.

    Any updates on this yet? I know you can set the resolution lower than 720p to make the playback faster, but I can only do this on youtube and not other flash sites.

    Well, I have tried the 11.4 Beta version without success. I can notice there's a slightly (just slightly, but still undesirable) improvement as the video doesn't pause so often, but still plays in slow motion for certain periods of time.

    The only stable version (at least for me) is the 11.1 which I been using since I have this problem and was enthusiastic every time I saw a new flash update, just to find there's no fix yet. =(

    Also, may I ask why this bug has a closed state with a withdrawn status, if is not fixed yet?

    this is asdesign.

    below is from internal dev:
    This is a different behavior than earlier. Earlier we would freeze the frames, drop them and stop rendering when cpu is pegged, but now we let them be late but still display them. The experience now is arguably better than earlier although slightly different. This would only happen on low end devices where earlier the frames were dropped.

  • Calise Cheung

    5:14:20 PM GMT+00:00 Jul 18, 2012

    We have Flash Player version 11.4 beta on the lab now.
    http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplatformruntimes/flashplayer11-4/
    This beta has some fixes for the video area. Please try and see if it improves.
    A note that the video playback will suffer if the CPU overloaded (100%), if that's the case, set to a lower resolution can help. E.g instead of playing 1080p, choose 720p or lower if the app has the option.

  • TrantaLocked

    7:04:55 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 18, 2012

    Update: My processor is actually an Athlon XP-M 3000+ Barton.

    With the latest prerelease build (11.4 beta2), the same problems I mentioned in the original bug report still occur:
    Video and audio are out of sync
    Video appears to play in slow motion (smoothly) and then skip chunks of consecutive frames. Say the video plays 100 frames slow motion, then skips the next 50 frames trying to "catch up" to the audio; repeat process.
    The audio plays normally, at normal speed with no skipping.
    CPU usage is 100% when viewing 720p and 1080p video on YouTube.
    This occurs in all flash videos with 720p and 1080p quality, and on other websites like NBA.com this happens to videos. I tested many videos, this one would work if you want to try it at 720p: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHOX1pIMxdY&feature=plcp
    DxDiag is attached

    OK, I sent an email for an invitation to the prerelease program, Hitomi? I'm assuming this test build will be for 11.3 at this point since I know you guys will be releasing it this month?

  • hikerKS

    1:29:05 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 5, 2012

    By the way, Hitomi, it does make sense to test with or without disabling hyper-threading because there might be unusual configuration scenarios which appear to reproduce the problem. It's always to test all possibilities because you never know.

  • hikerKS

    1:24:42 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 5, 2012

    OK, sure, but do go to the Adobe community forum and announce this invitation there to invite other people to test this too because they also complained about it as well and these other people CPU configurations which I don't have as well (like that person with the PC with the six-core CPU):

    Hi hikerKS, I have Lenovo laptop with Intel Core i5 CPU that support hyper-threading technology. I never be able to reproduce this problem on my laptop so I disabled hyper-threading in BIOS and tried to see if situation changed. I couldn't reproduce the problem even with disabling hyper-threading technology.

    Although we couldn't easily reproduce this problem, our developer looked into this issue and tried some enhancement on internal development build. Can you help us to test it by joining our private prerelease program? If so, please send an email to me <hkudo@adobe.com> and we'll send you an invitation to the program.

    Alright, well, I don't know if I see this problem when the CPU is overloaded, but I do suggest you contact some people who have this problem on adobe community forums for Adobe Flash Player to get the test build running on different CPU configurations because one person just told me he had the same problem on a machine with Intel Core i7 CPU which has 6 cores(with up to 12 threads all at once running using hyper-threading technology). Tell your development team to test the same machine with and without hyper-threading technology disabled in the BIOS for machines with Intel CPUs that support hyper-threading technology to see what happens.

    I can only reproduce the bug when the cpu is overloaded. So far, on single process in my environments. But I think it might happen to 2 processor cores if the video uses high cpu (e.g close to 100%)
    We do have a fix in the internal build. I will let you know if there is a public test build out there and you can help for test.
    Thanks.

    so are you saying this new multi-threaded video decoding engine has this problem on single-core CPUs and low-power multi-core (at least 2 processor cores or more) CPUs, but with high-power, high performance multi-core CPUs, the multi-threaded video decoding engine works fine?
    Also, is there any information you need from me you're requesting to help the development team clarify this issue?

    The issue only happens for me when using 1 process for XP vmware, while CPU reaches close to 100%. When using 2 processes, then the performance look ok.
    Test Player 11.2 on the same machine without vmware doesn't see the problem since it is using 2 processes.
    We have some progress in our internal build and the performance looks better even with single process. There is still an issue need to clarify which dev is looking into.

  • hikerKS

    7:04:37 AM GMT+00:00 Jun 1, 2012

    I checked the specs for Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E7600 which doesn't have hyper-threading technology, and this means Intel hyper-threading technology won't be available for that vmware setup on that machine. I have an idea: Because this is a possible problem with the threads in the multi-threaded video decoding engine, try to go into vmware configuration settings check what numbers of cores are being used, and then modify the vmware's virtual CPU configuration settings to make sure all the 2 logical CPU cores are used on the same virtual machine OS. It's possible the VMWare software might make a problem with the multi-threaded code with allocating 1 core for the virtual machine OS you're testing instead of allocating all the total 2 cores from the Core 2 Duo CPU. Also, test flash player 11.2 on the same machine without vmware?

  • Calise Cheung

    11:47:24 AM GMT+00:00 May 31, 2012

    Hi, we do have a vmware setup which can reproduce the issue. It does seem like related to multithreaded video decoding change. We are looking into this and setting it as a high priority issue. Thanks.

    9:45:00 AM GMT+00:00 May 31, 2012

    any status about reproducing with different CPUs as I suggested such as Intel CPUs with and without hyper-threading technology and CPUs with and without SSE4 instructions?

  • hikerKS

    7:01:48 AM GMT+00:00 May 23, 2012

    well, clearly Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 GPU doesn't support hardware-accelerated H.264 video decoding for flash playback, and my AMD Radeon HD 4550 GPU supports hardware-accelerated H.264 video decoding which still had the same problem with 11.2. The Intel Atom CPU N455 @ 1.66Ghz (2 CPUs) has about the same equivalent maximum speed as my Pentium 4 Hyper-Threading 64-bit CPU running at 3.66, and both of these CPU models have hyper-threading and instructions up to SSE3, but no SSE4 instructions and virtualization technology. Could it be the lack of SSE4 instructions or could it be hyper-threading technology affecting the multi-threading video decoding engine on 11.2? try disabling hyper-threading technology in the Dell Inspiron Mini 10-1018 BIOS, and then reproduce it again on 11.2 on that same machine?

  • Zhe Wang

    4:26:29 PM GMT+00:00 May 22, 2012

    GPU: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150

    any status yet on cpu and graphics card of the machine in the remote office that reproduces the problem?

  • hikerKS

    7:27:29 AM GMT+00:00 May 18, 2012

    OK, please give details as to what kind of CPU and graphics card that machine in the remote office because it's possible that from being multi-threaded video decoding, much older CPU models don't support excellent performance with the multi-threaded video decoding engine in 11.2 Also, don't forget to test with a non-perfect internet connection such as a fair-to-weak Wi-Fi signal to test if the multi-threaded video decoding for the flash video stream is affected for 11.2 by the same weak network connection that has no affect on video decoding for 11.1.

  • Hitomi Kudo

    3:01:14 PM GMT+00:00 May 17, 2012

    Current status: I personally can not reproduce in my test environment. One of team member in remote office found one machine that can reproduce the problem and it's a low end HW. Please stay tuned for more update.

  • hikerKS

    9:00:33 AM GMT+00:00 May 17, 2012

  • hikerKS

    12:09:26 PM GMT+00:00 May 11, 2012

    i also have another suggestion try testing the video streaming with non-excellent internet connection. In other words, non-perfect weak-to-fair Wi-Fi signal or slower ethernet connection.

  • hikerKS

    12:07:06 PM GMT+00:00 May 11, 2012

    could it be the multi-threading video decoding in 11.2 that's at issue? i mean, these problems started when you guys introduced multi-threads. well, my machine is a Pentium 4 with hyper-threading 3.4Ghz and a AMD Radeon HD 4550 Gaphics card in a PCI Express v1.0 x16 slot on a Windows 7 machine.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=x7NekDG_UIU


    I can't find a complete video where I don't see the problem but this one plays like 99% perfect for me (much much better than the prevous video):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGJuMBdaqIw

    The video info of the "bad" video shows both "Software video rendering" and "software video decoding".

    I use:

    - Intel Celeron CPU 2.40GHz
    - 1GB of RAM.
    - Internet Explorer 8
    - Windows XP SP3
    - 64 mb of graphics memory (RADEON 7000 AGP).

    Can you provide a video link that you can see the problem and also a video that you don't see the problem?

    If you see the problem with youtube, can you check how decoding and rendering occur? The info can be found by right click mouse on Youtube and choose show video info, it displays rendering and decoding information for the youtube video they are playing. (e.g. Accelerated video rendering, software video decoding.)

    This is THE FIRST TIME I have ever taken the time to rant to a company about an online product or bug. This latest version of flash is driving me nuts! My wife and I used to enjoy pulling up shows off Hulu or YouTube as part of our bedtime routine, and it is now a total exercise in frustration. You have GOT to fix this!!! I spentall day today uninstalling and reinstalling a mish-mash of software trying to "fix" my computer, and then I get on her and see all these people with the same issue and you guys are talking about this problem NOT being a priority to fix... are you KIDDING ME!?! You do realize that for every person who knows how to get onto your website and leave comments and complain, there are probably a thousand people who just get pissed, give up, and mutter about how they hate your product now. That is NOT good for business.

    And,here's another thought, send out an "update" that allows users to revert back to a past version of flash while we wait for the fix. THAT should be hard at all!

    If I was Adobe's CEO I would fire whoever worked on this version of flash and make the fix-it team work non-stop until this issue is fixed... I'm not kidding, this is a product killing and company-reputation destroying problem. You guys think you're bullet-proof and that this issue isn't a priority? Yeah right, tell that to Lehman Brothers... Fix it, fix it, fix it, fix it... like the SNL skit, FIX IT!!!

    TV programmes are becoming unwatchable online on Channel 4 (http://www.channel4.com/programmes/4od), and ITV Player (http://www.itv.com/itvplayer/), though Channel 5 (http://www.channel5.com/demand5) seems to be mostly unaffected: perhaps they use lower quality? BBC programmes mostly play reasonably well online, but many programmes downloaded for their iPlayer Desktop app, which uses Adobe Air, are so jerky that it's impossible to follow what's happening.

    Same issues! Cannot watch anything over 10 to 15 minutes with out it starting to bog down. It is useless to try to fix on my own because I don't know what the freaking issue is!

    How long do people have to complain about the audio/video sync issues before you F***ING do something about it?! How about OFFERING THE OLDER VERSION ON YOUR DAMN SITE!

    Same problem here.
    Version 11.1 worked fine. Version 11.2 plays videos like in slow motion. What is interesting, when in full screen videos play fine!

    I have the same problem. Flash movies used to work fine. Now only Youtube works well. All other movies are slow/out-of-sync. If I pause a movie the frames catch up with the sound for like a second behind a the darkend pause screen.

    I have been having same issues on my machine (XP) since installing new build. Audio OK, video is in slow motion.

    Similar problem as everyone else since the latest update. Slow motion playback and then will jump forward. Youtube seems to be the worst for me.

    I'm having the same problem, after updating to the latest flash player, video/audio out of sync. I even updated my drivers and used the uninstall/reinstall player. But it didn't help. I tried to go back and install an older version of the flash player, but it wouldn't let me. It made me quit the install and offered me the latest version which I do not want.

    After update to latest Flash, many web videos are slow refresh when at full screen.

    As of April 2012, the player renders video really slow. Audio okay. Hint: Not everyone has Windows 7. Test bug code on XP to verify. A fix is needed soon, as this is really embarrassing for "Flash".

    I have definitely experienced this issue for Flash Player 11.2 on my Windows 7 PC which uses AMD/ATI Radeon HD 4550 video card which supports H.264 video decoding. There's definitely a lot of lag in the video playback with dropped frames causing slow playback and video and audio sometimes are not in sync. Once I uninstalled 11.2 and installed flash player 11.1, the video played fine. I'm assuming this is a problem with the multi-threaded video decoding introduced in Flash Player 11.2, since threads are not always synchronized easily and perfectly.

    this video lag with slow motion playback and dropping frames with Adobe Flash Player 11.2 is any flash player supported program on Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and is seen on any browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome, etc.). A good test would be play a full episode of any TV program on hulu.com and you'll see dropped frames and slow motion playback frequently. Flash player 11.1 doesn't have this problem.

    I am having the same issue, ever since I've upgraded to the latest flash player.
    I've tried every possible solution. This is most likely adobe's issue. Hopefully it
    can get sorted out pretty soon.
