Hey atomicans,
Ive been having some issues with video playback lately.
When watching video files that i have downloaded no matter if i use windows media player or VLC.
what happens is ill begin watching the video for a while (3.23mins when i last tested) then the video just pauses for a few seconds, a few seconds more and the audio will start but the video will stay paused, a few more seconds on and the video will play super fast and go beyond where the sound is up to, finally a few more seconds on the video catches up to the audio and the video is fine for a little while. then the same thing happens again.

I have reinstalled my video drivers and it has not fixed the issue.

System:
-Intel Core i5-750 2.66Ghz CPU
Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3R P55 1156pin DDR3 Motherboard
G.Skill-Trident 8GB Kit(4x2GB) DDR3 2000 (Intel P55 ONLY)
ATI 6970
Seagate SATA 1TB HDD x 2
Patriot Wildfire 60Gb SSD
Samsung SATA 22x Black DVD RW
NZXT Zero 2 Black Tower Case
XFX 850+ Psu
Microsoft MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM
Benq 24" G2420HD 2ms DVI-D HDMI WS Monitor

Any of your hard drives 'green" drives? Also check your power settings and make sure hard drives are not set to turn off after 3 minutes.
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings > Change advanced Power settings > hard disk.

Nope none of them are green, i checked the setting you asked about and it says 20 minutes.
Now that you mention the hard drives, on boot sometimes i get a 'SMART command failed' error on my SSD.
How ever my video are stored on my 1TB hard drives.

For the SMART thing do check for new bios for the mobo (apparently some mobos need a bios update for this) and also check for firmware updates for both the SSD and the other HDDs.
F8 is the latest for the mobo

Can't find no wildfire 60Gb SSD on patriot's site so check that drive version.

Also Seagate Firmware updates

if you have one of the drives mentioned.
http://support.seagate.com/firmware/drive_config.html
for how to find out the drive and serial number.

just did a BIOS update which i think i did correctly.
managed to get to the 5 minute mark watching the exactly same video i had the issue on.
Its a good sign pretty sure its work seeing as i had never done a bios update.
I also disabled the SMART command function on the hard driver so it doesnt prompt any more.
Thank you Aliali you are a gentleman and a scholar and i shall name my first born after you.
jks but seriously thanks very much man big help.

I would still look at the firmware updates especially the SSD one.
For the Wildfire and Pyro series
3.3.2 Release Notes

-Added Nand Support
-Addresses Drive Timeout Issue
-Fixed SMART attributes log calculation -Optimizes Drive Read to improve ECC errors
-Improves Secure Erase operation to ensure Drive is Idle for improved stability
-Addresses S3/S4 power cycling issue on boot drives which resulted in BSoDs
-Addresses issues with READ/WRITE commands during power up
- Addresses issues during Firmware Updates
-Changed firmware Identify Parameters during commands
- Addresses Trim support issue which resulted in the drive freezing
- Addresses issue on primary boot drives waking from sleep mode and hanging

So really check the firmware versions and update if needed.
