Graphics advice

Whenever I stream anything live in HD such as BT Sport through the BT Sport app, the picture's fine whilst it's in the small box in the centre of your screen, however once you go full screen the movement becomes choppy. My system's not the very best, 2.5ghz processor, 4 gb ram with Intel HD Graphics, but from what I've read and heard it should be able to cope with this no bother...

I was just wondering if anyone knew of any tweaks or solutions that could help me out with this? I want to stream the football on Thursday through the BT app so hoping I can sort something out before then...

is it wired or wireless?

Mine does that at the beginning of the broadcast and it's annoying - usually goes to full HD after 30seconds to a minute,
which makes me think it's more a BT sport app issue rather than my tablet.

What is your internet connection like? Your speed effects the quality of the video.

Thanks for the replies... My internet speed isn't the best, but at a constant 11mbps it should be good enough to handle this...

Mine also starts slowly then picks up to HD inside about 10-15 seconds I'd say, however I still have the problem as mentioned in the OP...

I don't seem to encounter this problem whilst watching youtube clips and the like, it's only when streaming something live in HD, either via the BT Sport app, or through other, less ahem, conventional means (ie sport streaming websites)...

I've asked countless times on these websites and a lot (most) of the time it seems as if it's near enough only me experiencing the issue, which is what lead me to believe that there must be some sort of a fix...

Oh, and it's wired btw

Run a few tests at speedtest.net and pingtest.net and post back the results. Sounds like your internet is just not keeping up with the amount of data required to obtain HD streaming from what you are describing.

And what of pingtest? You need to post all the information up because the raw speed is only part of the context about how fast and reliable your internet is.

Look up how to disable hardware acceleration in xxx, where xxx is the app you are using. I had problems with either flash or html 5 videos behaving as you say with hardware acceleration on
