Exclamation Snoblower runs weak

I purchase my Briggs and Stratton snowblower from HomeDepot last season. Worked awesome at that time and the first time I used it this winter. Now when I start it it run roughly. Here is the video how is mine sounds. Not my video just found it on youtube
When I approach snow it throw it away but not as far as before. I did not change anything since last time so I don't know why it would do that. It is still under warranty but I'm pretty sure if I take it there now they will keep it for the rest of the winter. I'm just hoping this is an easy fix that I can do myself after work.

The belts need to be adjusted. and you might have old fuel in there also.

I can't post the link to a video. Don't know how many posts I need to be able to do that.
The belts need to be adjusted so it runs smooth or so it throws the snow farther?

Cool

You need to spend some time on here, look around and learn how to maintain your blower.

It pitches the snow close because the RPMs are low.

There is no throttle. But what I realized is if I move the choke half way between open and close it runs better but is not powerful enough to throw the snow
