Howdy Folks...............

This may be a dumb question, and the answer may be obvious......except to me. When I am viewing videos of Trainz on YOUTUBE, is the stuttering on MY END, or was the recorded stuttering from THEIR END????:confused:

Probably Youtube. The videos from Youtube are streamed, that is, the downloading video bit stream is stored in a buffer file on your computer and your computer starts to display the video as soon as the buffer has x% of the data. If the required data rate for playback of the video exceeds the download rate, the buffer will empty and the video will pause while it builds back to x%. You can hit the pause button on the video player to allow the buffer to fill to a greater value then hit play.

Thank you:wave: Bob..........I see other simulations with no problem, and plenty from Trainz with no problem. When I see the stutter, I assume their computer is at fault. It always seems to be someone stating that "this is my first video".:hehe:

If any other program is accessing data via the Internet like a download, this would cause the video to stall as it is time sharing with the other application.

Try backing it up about 10 seconds after it starts to let it catch up with itself.

Thank you all for the clarifications. It is really no problem. I was thinking if the scene is recorded with stutter, then I would see it. Take care.:wave:
