DVD Movies are choppy

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I can't get a DVD movie to play right, they look terrible. What could the problem be? The worst part about it is I just bought a DVD burner from newegg and I thought that was the problem, and I shipped it back to them and got a replacement and then just shipped that one back to them today, and I just realized that wasn't the problem, so I've waisted about $10 on shipping and don't have a DVD burner now cause I just got a refund this time. This isn't my day.

Might be the drive, look on the manufacturers website for a firmware update.

It's not, I've got a different drive in there right now and it does the same thing. And I already tried a firmware update before.

4 things could cause this.
1. not enough memory
2.GFX cards can't keep up
3.the priority of the movie player is set low
4.the player could be less then good

But I used to be able to watch movies, I think. Unless I just didn't notice this then.

Also check your resolution and refresh rate.
75Mhz is a good rate for movies.

I really doubt it's his machine. I have several socket A athlons laying around with Geforce2 and FX series cards in them with 1/2 gb of ram and they all play movies perfectly. It's gotta be your dvd software or drivers. Your machine is more than strong enough to play movies.

This is true his rig should play it no problem but if he's low on resources then its trying to cache it and chopping it up.

Yeah, I need some CSS codecs that are free... I can't find any. But anyway, what could be slowing it down?
