The pattern that is coming out with all the posts is that Flash Play is using more processing time than Silverlight.
Maybe, but I don't think that's the cause. I get stuttering (random screen freezes of up to 1 second or so) even though my laptop is of decent spec with only around 20% CPU usage while watching BT Sport. It seems to have improved somewhat this week but it's still intrusive enough to be a pest.
You are right!!
Managed to capture the condition this morning.
Here's a screen shot showing the failure instant where the picture froze for 1 1/2 second.
Conditions were:- graphics card disabled, screen capture from windows performance monitor. (can't view monitor when BT player is in full screen).
You will see that the CPU usage just reduced for approx 1 second - indicating no input from stream??
There are some more accurate diagnostics tools available: I use AMD System monitor for the overall view which includes MPU, GPU and memory monitor.
There should be another for NVidia GPUs.
Will try this later as it's fiddly to set up.
Aladdin85.I am using a 'Lenovo 7" android tablet', and have downloaded the BT App from the Google store [free],I then bought a 'Chromecast' [£30] and connected it to my TV. I watched the Arsenal v Chelsea match with no problem at all,and with a perfect picture. As I have sjgned to watch all BT sport I think the extra cost is worth it. [BT and Microsoft should deal with this problem].
Good luck twin1965 on getting a refund from BT.I am amazed that the tiny Android can produce such a perfect video picture,and my mighty Microsoft W10 PC cannot.I will mostly use my Chromebook for my internet usage from now on.
Thanks aladding85.After my original question,no one has said they are getting a good picture on their Windows computer,so the problem must be the same for everyone. The Chromecast certainly works for me,and I am amazed at the HD picture I am getting on my 42" TV, [with no HDMI cable to worry about] I am looking forward now to next weeks games in Europe,
