    Stuttering/choppiness issues with Netflix

    Hi all,

    I am a proud new owner of a 10.1" Thrive. So far I am enjoying the Tablet's functionality and, with root, I'm glad I left Apple's ecosystem.

    The biggest issue I've been having thus far may not be a Thrive-related problem. When viewing Netflix, I notice that the playback can get quite choppy. I've played the same video on a side-by-side comparison with my wife's 1st gen iPad, the iPad does not have the choppiness that the Thrive has.

    I read that there are issues with 1080 resolutions, but I don't think the video from Netflix is playing at 1080.

    If anyone has any advice on how to correct this issue, please let me know.

    Thanks all!
    Mikhael

    Welcome kampana!
    Haven't experienced that on the Thrive, but I have a pretty solid connection.
    I seem to recall that was a problem with Netflix on my NookColor.
    The fix for that was hitting <pause> and then resuming play. That smoothed it right out.

    Thanks Danvee,

    My connection is solid as well so I'm pretty sure I can rule that out. TBH, it almost seems like the issue is related to artifacts, like the display can't keep up with the speed of the video. I'm not sure how to explain it technically, but it definitely doesn't look like the typical low-bandwidth stutter.

    I should've brought the Thrive with me so I could try the pause solution, I'll give it a whirl when I get home tonight.

    Thanks again.

    The artifacts and stuttering were exactly what we'd initially expreienced with Netflix on the Nook. The Thrive's CPU/GPU are far faster and more robust.
    Pausing it seems to load the "buffer". Worth a try for sure.
    I'm unaware of anyone else having that issue (out of 15K+ members)
    How about something that's runinng in the background, accessing the connection, or sopping up CPU cycles?
