HD playback help!

01-29-2010, 04:27 PM
I recently bought a Flip UltraHD Camera and it records in 720p. My computer struggles to play it. It'll play a frame every few seconds and the sound will be there or it will be the video and the sound will be off. Is there anything I can do to make the videos play better? Here are the specs I could find, I don't know much about them or where to find more detailed specs.

MS Windows Vista Home Basic
Intel Celeron D CPU 3.46GHz
NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT

Any help would be amazing!

What are you using to play the videos? And do you have the hardware acceleration turned on?

Not only what Rbinck has to say,,but also turn off all apps running in the background. Anti-virus and OSE programs kill your computer.

I've tried Windows Media Player and MPCStar. MPCStar seems to work a little bit better. I'm not sure how I'd go about turning on the hardware acceleration, I'll have too look it up.
