    Hello everyone...
    I have ecountered the following annoying problem:
    When I download a large file, for example a video, and I want to watch another video while downloading, I get a laggy/choppy playback (every 2 secconds or so there is a small pause). Does anyone have an idea how to fix this? I already tried placing .nomedia files into the download directiory, but that didn't fix it.

    Phone: GT-N7100 (Galaxy Note 2, rooted with Aragorn exploit)

    If you need more information, feel free to ask.
    Please help!

    It could be a poor connection, network congestion, etc.

    And if trying to do this over Wi-Fi, best of luck. Realistically, I cannot expect smooth streaming of HD content with bandwidth already being chewed up by the download. Maybe getaway with low resolution non demanding streams, but not HD stuff.

    Well, I don't mean streaming the video, but playing it from the sdcard

    Oh, okay. So the only thing I can think of is there is a bottleneck between reading/writing to the card. Maybe a little too much for it to handle.
