USB™ 2.0 HDMI™ Adapter 1080P Video Playback on TV Gets Choppy

This problem could be caused due to USB 2.0 bandwidth limitation or CPU power limitation. However, playing videos while working on an alternate office application such as a software download or emailing occupies bandwidth and causes inefficiency for video playback.

Also two things to keep in mind: j5create USB 2.0 HDMI adapter supports any monitor up to 1920 x 1200 resolution at 32bit. Unfortunately, when playing a video, j5create only supports 720p video (1280 x 720). In order to get the best video play back performance, we suggest adjusting the TV/monitor to the resolution that fits the ‘film resolution’ e.g. 1280 x 720; 1366 x 768; 1024 x 768 before playing the film while plugging in the USB 2.0 HDMI adapter.

If you wish to keep your monitor at 1920 x 1080, it will still enable video playback at 1920 x 720 (or 1280 x 720) film, but the video’s landscape may need to be changed. This is a case of personal preference. For 1080p video playback, we recommend USB 3.0 Super Speed products such as the JUA350.

The USB 2.0 display adapters are designed for office applications. They are limited to the transfer speed of USB 2.0 so you will see some latency or choppiness when streaming video or gaming. USB 3.0 adapters are much faster and are highly recommended if you plan on using the screen connected to the j5create adapter for anything that is graphics intensive.
