Hi, Hopefully this video will show you what is happening occasionally when I watch a video online. The motion jerks around. (see attached untitled.avi.) This started last week. This was the video link: http://www.buzzfeed.com/whitneyjefferson/between-two-ferns-with-brad-pitt

Windows 7 on Dell  Inspiron N7010
Intel HD graphics

Any thoughts? Is there somewhere I could upgrade? Thanks!

What application are you using to watch videos?  And what browser?

Firefox, and whatever application the browser uses. How can I tell what application that is?

Test with another browser such as IE or Chrome and let's see if it is caused by the browser or the video app.  Preferably use Chrome.

Works for me! Whenever I see the problem, I'll go over to chrome. The problem is with FF, not my video hardware, I'm happy!

Glad you're happy.

I suspect there's something in Firefox that is causing the choppiness.  Could be an addon or an extension that got recently installed.  If there's nothing you want to keep in Firefox do a complete uninstall and then reinstall again.

Ok, thanks. I have it pretty much the way I want it, I use it for almost everything. I can watch the occasional video on Chrome, no big deal.
