XBMC & AMD APU Tags: Multimedia Video AMD Apps Last response: July 28, 2011 7:25 PM in Applications Share makavillin July 25, 2011 8:51:24 PM So I just built an HTPC with the new AMD A8 APU. I'm running Windows 7 Home 64 and would like to stream all of my video from my NAS using XBMC. The only way video will stream smoothly without stutter is with Windows Media Player Classic. If I try to play a video with VLC and XBMC it stutters throughout the entire video. In XBMC I have turned on hardware acceleration but that doesn't seem to do anything. Is there some sort of GPU configuration that I'm missing? I have the latest drivers as well as the K-Lite codec pack, but I believe XBMC doesn't even use external codecs. Thanks!

Try using ethernet on everything if it is wireless? makavillin July 28, 2011 7:01:22 PM Ethernet. Not a great distance. Gigabit networking hardware. Shouldn't be a network related issue since video streams perfectly with Windows Media Player classic. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Have you tried different video formats? Say streaming a DIVX file vs a VOB dvd file, etc...? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
