I have a Dell XPS 9360 and for some reason the video playback on chrome is not smooth - can someone suggest a solution? I have disabled Hardware acceleration which helped but sometimes when I try to load a video it crashes and I have to reload a second time before it begins to play normally. Having to constantly do this hinders a smooth playback experience. I don't believe this happens in the other browsers.
I'm not saying Intel is responsible - I'm asking to see if anyone has suggested solutions as it was recommended I ask on here. Dell isn't going to know everything. When I asked Dell support about it they immediately assumed motherboard even though it was brand new. My laptop works relatively smoothly now(after making some tweaks and d'ling/waiting for updates). Youtube videos just crash every once and a while upon initial page load(only in CHROME - not FireFox or IE). It's usually quickly resolved by a page refresh. It would be even better though if it didn't happen at all. 👍
As I have provided you multiple times, dell is responsible for your support, not Intel. You paid dell for the laptop, which included warranty and support. It is not an Intel laptop, but a dell laptop. They are the integrator, and you paid them for support. Think about what you are asking - every machine that has an intel processor and graphics cannot get support from intel. This is why the manufacturer/integrator of the device (e.g. dell), provides support for THEIR PRODUCT.
And, the reason you should use only Dell's driver, is that it has likely been modified to work with their hardware. This is especially the case if you have dual graphics.
The best that can be done here is to point you to the latest Intel generic driver. If it does not work, contact DELL.
Oh, I am aware of that tool, which is intended for Intel boards. So, what does that have to do with this discussion and your chrome issue?
I have informed you multiple times of how to get the proper support.
Because you keep re-directing me to Dell when I already told you what they thought about the issue. Why would Intel have this type of software, ability to download drivers yourself and/or community forums if it was inappropriate to ask Intel ?
