    Hi everyone, I've recently have bought a new 22 inch 1080p monitor. So I started watching movies on my computer a lot more often. Most of the movies that I downloaded play fine unless I get higher quality movies.

    For example, I tried watch a 720p blu ray movie a few days ago and the audio and video lagged on it. I then tried a 1080p blu ray movie which lags 10 times worse than the other one, again both audio and video.

    Both of the videos were .mkv files, not sure if that has anything do to with it or not. My graphics card is a Radeon HD 4650 1GB. I think the core speed is 600 MHz, give or take 50. I have 2 gigs of DDR2 ram along with a 3.4 dual core cpu. plenty of space on my hard drive as well. The audio is only on board sound.

    I've tried using multiple different players. I've used Media player classic and DivX which both work terribly. I've also tried VLC and MPCStar which have crystal clear audio, but the video is still glitchy. Is there setting somewhere in the program that I'm not aware of that will help?

    I hope someone can help me out, thanks a lot ahead of time!
