    Using firefox and IE, with Divx Player and ViPlayer, movies always pause and get choppy when I load a new page, refresh or go back.

    Ive got tons of computing power, 1gb ram, Barton 2500+, and 2 sata drives.
    I tried to turn off hardware acceleration in Divx Player, but got the same thing.

    Does this happen to anyone else?

    No. I just tested this playing a Divx movie on my powerbook using VLC. I have a handful of other stuff open too.

    Try another program to play your Divx files maybe?

    Same shit, different program.
    It also happens when Im in full screen mode and the hard drive seeks/reads, it will skip/chop for a frame while the drive retrieves data...fuck this is pissing me off.
