Internet Connection + VLC


Knightmare

Recommended Posts

Whenever I'm watching a movie on my laptop, it seems like VLC kills my connection. If it's a movie that I have seen many times, I'll stop midway through the film and browse the web; however, I notice that my wireless internet is not working. This happens anytime that I run VLC. Not sure why or how to fix it. The programs that are working/affecting my internet/VLC at the time are as follows:

- cFosSpeed

- Windows 7 Manager (various tweaks)

- Process Lasso (gaming mode for VLC)

Anyone else having this issue? If so, a solution would be welcomed. :D

Why will VLC terminate internet connection? Out of understanding, if you are watching movie offline (I mean, not with VLC plugin on the web). Try blocking VLC.exe in firewall.

I uninstalled Process Lasso and it seems to work fine now. Maybe it has something to do with the gaming mode setting. :huh:

Just checked it out. Not sure how I feel about a player that still supports Windows ME. :lol:

Obviously it does. When you activate gaming mode, priority of all other processes is lowered giving the one running in gaming mode, maximum.

I remember enabling this on my old laptop fixed the issue I was having with Mediamonkey. Maybe I'm still able to classify that as a game/multimedia process.

Gom works best for me and if you download a good codec pack, you are good to go and it will play just about any video.

Trying to avoid adding extra codecs too. I'm just too picky. :rolleyes:

you can try mpc-hc + lav filters + xy-vsfilter, it only less real media and quick time codec. I love that ^_^
