HD video using AMD Athlon XP 3000+ - Page 2

The video card does support HD video and uses AMD's AVIVO technology. What hardware and software determine if a computer can play HD video, and what are their minimum requirements?

you need an HD2600 or higher. IT also depend on the encoding method of the video and weather the GPU supports it.

my machine below plays most HD movies but, certain ones lag really bad.

I did all that, but it didn't fix it. What fixed it was installing the newest version of my codec pack. I can now watch 1080p locally. Must've been a bug with a decoder, filter, or something else. I still can't play 720p or higher streaming video, but that's a CPU limitation, as my CPU wasn't designed with HD in mind, and I can accept that.

which is why flash sucks, should gpu accelerate that too.

Thanks for the good advice. I tried to enable hardware acceleration in Flash Player. I could view 720p but not 1080p. Also, the ATI driver crashed to a black screen and I had to do a hard reset. It looks like I'm limited to 1080p locally and 480p online.

If the video card does not support HD playback then your playback will fall on the CPU which will not be able to play all HD properly. You need to check if the card is actually playing the HD's locally as well online.
