Alright, I downloaded a pretty big movie file, not considering it was an avi, although I'd had problems with them before. So, I play it in WMP, Winamp, Realplayer, and a few other players. They all play smoothly, but slow and off-sync video. Then, at a certain point, it tries to catch up and skips about a minute's worth of video.

I tried to update my display adapter driver(nVidia Aladdin TNT2), which didn't help. In fact, it(like in the past) made my screen jump and freeze the pc, so I rolled it back.

I've modified the player and display adapter settings for video and hardware acceleration, but bringing them down, along with the resolution and colors, didn't help.

Mpegs, wmvs, and pretty much every video file BUT avi plays just fine on my computer, with enough CPU memory. Could someone please give me some suggestions on speeding up the video, or finding the source of the problem?

A little sidenote, as well: My computer used to play avis fine, but that was five years ago, and I have since then filled the hard drive to about 1 GB left, as well as installed WinXP. So... help?

1st thing ... Have you install any codecs?
2nd thing... Have you install a suitable ffdshow for your pc?
Try download the codecs from some website that is free..

:cool:
