    I installed Ubuntu 16.04.1 64 bit LTS GNU/Linux using the default Linux kernel 4.4.x AMD64 and I experience choppy video performance when playing HTML5 and Adobe Flash videos from numerous websites like Google YouTube, Vimeo, Netflix, Hulu, etc. When I play SteamOS + GNU/Linux PC game titles, I also experience choppy video performance. To be specific, frames are dropped and there are random stutters in video playback or PC gaming.

    I did quite a bit of research and I did my fair share of self-support to fix the Intel HD Audio audio technical issues, downgraded to the latest stable nVidia proprietary graphics drivers, and upgraded the Linux kernel. These measures helped to improve the smoothness of video performance, but the underlying problem still exists.

    Please tell me what information that you will need from me and how to furnish it to this community to be of greater help to troubleshoot and resolve my technical issues with regard to choppy video performance. I understand that this is an issue that has plagued previous Ubuntu versions when each one was installed bare metal on a desktop or laptop PC in the past and I am hoping to pinpoint the root cause and solve it fairly quickly.

    Thank you.

    Welly, shortest post I have seen from you.
    But please use code tags on longer text or code.

    Is the driver suggested here the one you have installed?
    Updated driver search by nVidia model, do not download, just check correct driver version
    http://www.geforce.com/drivers

    It looks like Titan needs the very newest drivers.
    Did you install from nVidia with .run (not recommended), Ubuntu repository (may not be new enough) or from ppa?

    #What is installed
    dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia
    dkms status

    sudo apt-cache policy nvidia*
    lsmod | grep nvidia

    Ubuntu Launches Its "Fresh" Proprietary Driver PPA - August 2015
    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...esh-Driver-PPA
    Instructions are newest driver for newest cards, must load legacy driver if old nVidia card.
    http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2015/08/u...ady-for-action
    Details on why and future incorporation to Ubuntu installer
    https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ub...st/004693.html
    https://launchpad.net/~graphics-driv...ive/ubuntu/ppa
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa

    # Shows standard repository versions
    ubuntu-drivers devices
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
    # should show newest versions available in addition
    ubuntu-drivers devices

    If you need to change drivers, you must fully purge old driver. Not sure details on a .run but it has its own script.

    # Houseclean out all old versions to avoid issues
    sudo apt-get remove --purge < nvidiadriverpackagename>
    # [ using the correct names] for each driver, before running:
    sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
    sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup

    Re: Ubuntu 16.04.x 64 bit LTS "Xenial Xerus:" choppy video performance

    I added both the Xorg Edgers and Ubuntu Graphics Drivers PPAs and I installed 367.44 64 bit from the PPAs. Then, I restarted my desktop PC. I noticed that after setting VLC to use VDPAU as the graphics rendering that my TV shows and movies play smoothly again. Just so you know, I am connected to Private Internet Access VPN and I use the Vivaldi web browser to watch online videos. I am thinking that I might need to try Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox and disconnect from the VPN to see if online videos will play smoothly again. I might try this later today.

    Here is my vivaldi://gpu configuration:

    It looks like you have bbswitch installed.
    That is for laptops that can switch between the internal Intel gpu and the graphics gpu.
    Desktops cannot do that, so no need for bbswitch. And at least one other thread I saw user uninstalled it and it seemed to help.

    Re: Ubuntu 16.04.x 64 bit LTS "Xenial Xerus:" choppy video performance

    How do I uninstall bbswitch? What else can you see from the information that I posted which may be causing poor desktop video performance?

    Thank you very much for telling me this now. I had no idea.

    Re: Ubuntu 16.04.x 64 bit LTS "Xenial Xerus:" choppy video performance

    At this point, what should I do?

    Should I sudo apt-get purge nvidia* and copy my Xorg configuration files to a backup file and restart my desktop PC and reinstall the latest 367.44 64 bit proprietary nVidia graphics drivers again? Will the BBSwitch be reinstalled again? Do I need to check my UEFI to ensure that the Intel iGP is disabled prior to reinstalling the proprietary nVidia graphics drivers again?

    Is it possible to remove the bbswitch and keep things the same? What else do I need to know?

    Re: Ubuntu 16.04.x 64 bit LTS "Xenial Xerus:" choppy video performance

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge bbswitch-dkms
    I figured it out. Now, I will restart my desktop PC and test desktop video performance again. Here's to my two fingers crossed for now.
