    HD online video on D2550MUD2 and RAM

    8minutestorm

      Ok so I have the D2550MUD2 board for almost a year now, it's been decent but I have a couple of issues.

       

      First, it can't really play online hd video, like for example Youtube, it's all choppy. With Firefox is better than Chrome but every 5 seconds or so it starts lagging (when the CPU is used, for decoding the video I guess). It's weird because offline 1080 hd video (saved on hdd) can be played almost flawlessly.

      I'm using windows 7 and I have all the latest drivers installed; For codecs I used K-Lite, and yesterday I installed CoreAVC insted but not much changed really. Do I need to install something? Shouldn't be able to play online hd video since offline works ok? I'm thinking of buying the Broadcom crystal HD decoder, maybe it will solve my problem?

       

      And second, the memory problem. When I bought the board I also bought one stick 2GB of RAM KVR1066D3S8S7/2G but also borrowed another 2gb from a friend, same 1066mhz if I remember right, but it refused to boot, just got stuck before bios. I also tried some other stick but didn't work either. So I've been using the 2gb kingston and it works ok but I'll want to upgrade to 4gb in the future, is it normal not to work with 2 sticks?
