somebody gotta know it.
i have a good pc and can't watch any self recorded demo cause it stutters extreme and almost doesn't run.
I have the same problem, and have made post about it before myself. No one knows the problem apparently because there are just a limited number of people who actually have the problem. If anyone knows, through all of my google searching, I have not found the solution.
is it okay with demos you haven't recorded? check cl_interpolate is set to 1
This has been an issue of mine for a couple of weeks now, and It's really annoying when trying to moviemake =)
I have the same problem as well and my demo of me in my listen server plays back at 10FPS even though demos of online servers playback perfectly.
The fix suggested by another user is to type in mp_restartgame 1 in the console and it allows you to playback your demo smoothly instead of it being incredibly laggy. It worked for me.
me too having same problem, 10 fps in pov demos...:/
I have the same problem. When i playback demo - game lagging, 10 fps. I change "fullscreen" to "fullscreen in window"(i don`t know, but i think it called so in English) and try to record and playback demo. Problem disappear. I change back to "fullscreen" - the same situation, no problem. Try, may be it can help you. (Sorry for my bad English)
I've figured out the fix for this guys. You have to record your replay in the freeze time before it ends. Type mp_restartgame 1 and record before freezetime ends or your replay will lag.
I've got a slightly different problem: My demo (my POV) is lagging (though net_graph shows I have constant 168 fps) but the other POVs of my team mates (spectating after I die) are completely lag-free. What... ._.
I had the same problem, but re-downloading the demo worked for me. Hope this works.
I have same problem but with character , when i type in console startmovie name tga wav
