GOM Player video very choppy when playing MPG

sam81 242 19 April 28, 2013 at 07:06 PM
I had to re-install Windows 7 and got around to re-installing GOM player. Problem is that it's very choppy when playing large MPG's. The same MPG's work fine with Windows Media player though. I ran the GOM wizard again and tweaked some settings, but still the same choppi-ness. It plays other formats smoothly, makes no sense. Even have the necessary codecs installed. Any insight on this, anyone?

After a reinstall did Windows auto install the graphics drivers. Do you have a graphics card? Did you download the appropriate drivers from the Nvidia/ATI website? That would be my first guess.

If your graphics card does not have the proper software installed, it will not perform optimally. FYI > Window does install base display drivers so that you can still view windows.

Yea, I installed my ATI's drivers right away, latest ones.

The weird thing is that it's choppy in GOM player, but not Windows Media Player. I really think it's an issue with GOM player?

If you think its a problem with the version try an older one. Any reason your using GOM over something like VLC?

its similar to VLC, and only reason i used to use it is because GomTV's GSL Starcraft online Streaming originally required it.
But now they have Flash/Twitch support so I don't use GOM Player anymore

Ok the issue has been fixed, and I'm posting the solution for reference in case anyone else runs into the same problem:

1. Launch GOM Media Player
2. Open the Preferences window (push F5)
3. Select "Filter" from the list on the left
4. Go to the "Source Filter" tab
5. Click the pop-menu under "Mpeg Transport Stream (TS, TP, TRP, ...)" and select "Play using GOM Player's internal source filter"
6. Close preferences, restart GOM Media Player, and attempt to play the file again
