Media Player 11 for Vista stutters playing audio

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium and prefer Windows Media Player as my default player for all Audio and Video files. I have created several playlist and kept the Shuffle ON. While playing a song, it works fine until the lat 10 seconds, but in those last few seconds, it starts stuttering and jumb. Seems like the next song is preparing to come and hence last 10 seconds become annoying.

Is this normal behavior? I dont think so. Any help will be appreciated.

Nope, obviously it is not the normal behavior. Here are some steps which you should try out and see if it helps:
  • Right-click on the Speaker icon in the system tray
  • select Playback Devices
  • right-click Speakers in that new dialog
  • Go to Properties
  • Click Enhancements
  • Choose "Disable All Enhancements"

Thats it. Your problem should be fixed. And if not, you should try updating your Sound drivers. As far as i know Dell/Sigmatel do have a driver update which could fix your problem for sure.

Thank you very much for your valuable help Miltongomes. Removing the sound enhancement really worked. Now the Audios work fine until the last second. Secondly as you stated about the drivers, i tried a new driver from Dell but that didn't helped, so the sound enhancements are staying off.

Hello bhgroom. Can you tell me which sound card are you using? Also did you tried turning off the Enhancement and updating the drivers properly? If yes and still facing the problem then problem there is some problem with your Sound Card itself.
