I tried to play videos in my computer which has Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. But, the videos are not running smoothly. For example each dialogue and its corresponding scene are getting repeated over and over. Its really irritating. My computer has NV118 / Mesa Intel® HD Graphics 5500 (BDW GT2) graphics. Please tell me how to resolve this?
I don't know if this was causing your problem, but was definitely causing mine, specifically, choppy video and animation playback. (Scrolling through pages, video playback, just about anything.)
It turns out it was the indicator-multiload or System Monitor in the app indicators toolbar. Turn it off fixed the problem and videos/animations run smoothly.
I did not experience video playback stuttering to the point where things were getting repeated. In this case, it might not be your solution.
Also posting it here in case someone else finds this question because they were experiencing the same issue I did.
Also, if you're craving a system-monitor experience without the same problem, using the Gnome Extension 'system-monitor' has been working fine for me!
You can enable persistence mode using:
sudo nvidia-smi -p 1.
I did try to open by the option of "Launch using Dedicated Card" but it didn't seem to work
Also, the mentioned solution is persistent you need to re-run it after every reboot.
