Solution: Laptop audio/video is slow, crackling, out of sync

Solution: Laptop audio/video is slow, crackling, out of sync
By Chongchen Saelee

If your laptop seemingly is slowing down in performance, you hear audio crackling, your video is sluggish and not synced with the audio, then make sure your laptop battery is in good condition. Odds are, your laptop is literally in its last breath of life, like literally only 10% health. Replace it with a brand new fully recharged laptop battery and see if this solves your problem! You’ll know your old battery is about to die if it is physically bloated. So time to throw it out and replace it. Hope that helps!

See, after 2012, 20th Century Fox slapped a bunch of their newly authored Blu-rays with BD+ and some other fancy DRM (digital rights management) techniques. So in order for you to play their content, you need to use their authorized firmware aka Blu-ray software players.

Unfortunately, if you’re an owner of an older Hewlett-Packard laptop who is stuck using their built-in media player software such as HPMediaSmart DVD, and you don’t have software upgrade or update support anymore, then you might be SOL or forced to buy a new commercial Blu-ray software that will play newer titles (Who has USD$100 lying around these days, especially to watch Blu-rays that have been collecting dust on our shelves for more than half a decade?).

HP, however, provided HP laptop owners with a FREE STANDARD VERSION of PowerDVD 10. The file is ~150 MB. (more…)
