Screen iagging/ stutter

Postby jasper8x » Mon Jun 11, 2018 5:42 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm using PT 6.1.0 and recently (out of the sudden) every movie or tv-show i'm trying to watch is made impossible
because of the screen that is lagging/ stuttering constantly.

I thought that my pc just had to buffer the whole file, so i tried that but still the problem isn't fixed.
Does anyone know how i could fix it?

I already tried an clean install, but this didn't work out for me.

Cheers, :D

Hello,
When I watch on my tablet it freezes and will not play anymore no matter what I do. I have a Samsung tablet that is all I can tell you. I would appreciate your help. I am getting tired of trying to watch movies or tv shows and it freezes so I do not get to watch it.

Hard to say what exactly causes the problem. However, you can try to:
1. Clean app data in your tablet settings
2. Check if there is enough disk space to store temporary files app using for watching
3. Try to select different torrent files
4. Update an app to the latest version

I think that Apple Application Support x86/x64 from inside the itunes fixed the buffering problem and stuttering but a bug apeared by slowing down selecting thumbnails and other things inside the popcorn time a lagish interface but atleast the video is working fine

Same problem with jasper8x here but no one answer to him yet!!! :( :(

I'll still fill in the fact that I noticed this ... When a movie starts and for some reason the subtitles are not activated then the movie works normally, at the moment you select any subtitle then the problem reappears and it stops only if you close again open the program and find yourself in exactly the same situation !!

Some idea of what's going on? :?

when drawn nearer with a warrant, that was a quite certain case and isn't something a great many people need to stress over. HideMyAss has a great deal of servers everywhere throughout the globe that gives phenomenal rates to spilling HD content. The product is anything but difficult to utilize, and the encryption guidelines are great (however not the best). http://www.thetechyblog.com/project-free-tv-its-alternative-streaming-sites-and-vpn-security/>
