I have noticed recently that when playing videos or games there is a slight but noticeable stutter every five seconds or so. I noticed it the most with games like riptide and shadowgun. The funny part is when I first had the nexus 7 before I believe the 4.1.1 update I ran right through riptide with no hiccups, so I'm guessing its a software thing. Everything else runs very smooth, it just seems like its anything is using hardware acceleration at all. Anyone else having this problem?
I had this issue with Netflix. I tried an episode of Futurama and it was grainy SD and choppy. It lasted for the first 30 seconds or so of the episode, and then the video suddenly cleared, switched to what looked like 720p and streamed smoothly. It was odd.
My nexus 7 (4.1.1) has the same issue. All video playback (netflix/youtube/local) stutters every 7-8 seconds. It isn't a router/network issue because it happens even with wifi disabled while playing locally stored video (Transformers). I did not test it with 4.1 prior to updating to latest build. Any ideas?
My first defective (bad screen) N7 played back Transformers fine. I could skip around the timeline and it would start within a second. However, my replacement unit is a disaster: it spins the circle for 10-15 seconds then the audio stutters and the video is a series of stills at 5-10 second intervals. I cleared the cache, rebooted, tried starting at the beginning, toggling the force GPU options in Developer Settings; nothing works. I don't have any rotation apps loaded. What to do?
