I have 2 computers.
#1 AMD athlon xp 2100 running at 1.7ghz, 1g ram and ati 9600 attached via dvi to 19" syncmaster. No problems playing 720p files or .mkv files. (xp sp2) using zoom player or MP11.
#2 AMD Semperon 3000 running at 2 ghz, 2 g ram and ATI 9600 attached via vga to 37" LG lcd. Running vista ultimate(All eyecandy shut off) Using the same software as above the video studders and audio/video sync is WAY off.
Both machines have different sound cards, just wondering why, what I think is the slower machine able to play the files?
I know its time to upgrade #2 just not FEESable at this time
I've got lots of codecs installed on both. Core, CCCp, K-lite pack.
This maybe the problem, just 2 many. No Vista Codec pack.
Maybe I will just uninstall all codecs, clean reg and try again.
Is there one codec(package)that is recommended? Wondering if I should go back to xp on #2?
Open the media file in it.
You will see the graph DirectShow players will use to play the file. Any DS player.
VLC is one player that won't use it - it has its own codecs, doesn't use any other.
